A Few weeks ago, I took Sidd, the Travelin Buddha on a trip to a local park/playground in Omaha Nebraska for a photo shoot and some rays. Here Sidd is shown peacefuly resting at the mouth of one of those tube/funnel type slides the young kids like. Sidd obviously liked it to although he politely declined a ride down the slide byhimself, he insisted that I go down the slide with him, placed on my lap, sooo, who am I to argue or decline such an offer/request from the World Honored One? A Passage from the Dhammapada (Words of Wisdom) Implore us to "Conquer anger by love, evil by good; conquer the miser with liberality, and the liar with truth". What this says is thus. Even out/counteract the negative in the world with the opposite,... This is not always so easy, I tend to desire to remove myself from such instances/issues, and that in itself is not always so easy or even possible in some instances. But if one endeavors to trod down the right path, one will find it easier to deal with such problems. A key to this is to try and NEVER go to sleep angry, behave in a way that you will know in your mind, body and spirit that you have done your best. Learn from your experiences, at the end of the day, take a little time to dwell on the events that caused you stress or issues, examine your responses and actions, perhaps you could do better, sometimes you may find that you did the best you could. Try and never get down on oneself, learn from and modify ones thoughts and actions if they lead to negativity. This passage is one of the harder ones to follow and put into play, Do your best, always strive for betterment.

    Symmetrically-balanced with excellent dof---dramatic, funneled backlighting complements the soft front lighting, and enhances the peaceful-spirituality--yes, great words
