small gestures

that remind one of the past.

it is winter growing now, when thoughts turn inward...

"we cannot change the way the world is,

but by opening ourselves to the world as it is,

we may find gentleness, decency, and bravery are available..."

( chogyam trungpa )


  1. A beautiful quote. Thank You for sharing it.

  2. It is a beautiful quote, with the telling conjunction "but" where "and" would leave what he believes to be true in the 3rd line sounding like less of a consolation for what he believes to be true in the 1st. I read the remark as enlivened by internal doubt as to the first assertion; I suppose I'm slow, to notice that, but it allows me to regard the quote as beautiful. In any case the photography is very well handled.

  3. shambala, the sacred path of the warrior

    is where the quote is taken from,

    a book one might keep by their bed

    in these times we live in.

    it is a book i would hope my son might read

    when old enough.

    thank you both for your visit and thoughts.
