THE VALUE OF THE SPIRITUAL

















"In the interests of everyone, the artist has a responsibility to use his medium well. In the Tibetan culture, most of the paintings are of deities or Buddhas, and they try to send a message of the value of the spiritual."

(The Dalai Lama)

Today is my youngest sister's 55th birthday. We have been estranged since March of 2003, right after our father's death. I am thinking of her today and sending kind wishes.

Sorry to hear that about you and your sister, am, though I've heard that such alienation is fairly common upon the death of a parent.

Hopefully she's thinking about you, too.

even when trees don't touch, their roots do.

I like what mum said. I am imagining the roots reaching out to each other.

I also like the white background on your blog template. It extends the black and white of your photos. Lovely.

sending loving kindness out to your sister surely will touch her - and it has already impacted you.

peace to you both.
