The thing to do, it seems to me,
is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud.
Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God –
if they call God at all.
I may not dance your dances or speak your language.
But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.

I like to listen.
I have learned a great deal from listening carefully.
Most people never listen.

The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness
of the interdependence of all these living beings,
which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another

We are in Florida preparing to cross the Atlantic enroute to Europe and then on to a self driving safari in South Africa.
I thought you’d like to see some amazing flora & fauna we saw in Florida!
Pretty amazing critters!
We will be subject to intermittent and dicey internet for the next two weeks while at sea,
so it will be impossible to follow your blogs.
I will check in when I can and try to fire off a pic or two of events enroute.
Uploading and editing are impossible,

so posts go “as is!”
Will touch base when I can.
Be well and,

cheers to you from the beautiful flora and fauna in Ft. Lauderdale and The Butterfly World!

Peony / ぼたん

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth,
so virtue appears from good deeds,
and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind.
To walk safely through the maze of human life,
one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.
