Contented Moments

Crow on Buddha

Contented moments are the potential of every moment.  Actually all moments are contented.  When they’re not, it’s because the mind has made a mess of them.

This photo is from the Shwedagon temple in Burma where my husband and I visited last December.  The quote is from Sylvia’s book It’s Easier Than You Think.  Her sense of humor is something I could use right now!  I’ve been working hard to get photos ready for printing for my book The Female Buddha.   These last details are about to make my hair stand on end.  I think a little crow is helpful about now.
