So, much angst, ire and bad news in some of the threads. Oh well, it wouldn't be a good forum without a balance of ying and yang, eh?

I hope these thoughts resonate and bring some peace to you today:

A topical and timely commentary:

“Rage — whether in reaction to social injustice, or to our leaders’ insanity, or to those who threaten or harm us — is a powerful energy that, with diligent practice, can be transformed into fierce compassion.”
Bonnie Myotai Treace

For the troublemakers in our lives...

“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.”
Pema Chödrön

Finally, a few words that become more clear with each passing year...wisdom? Maybe

“Many people think excitement is happiness.... But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, The Art of Power


I wish you a great day!

Thanks for posting this Rob. There are crazy things going on in my *real* life and this was just what I needed to see today.

The beauty and work in CL's art is all done in the water.

Any processing that may or may not be done--look at some of his work--is only the whipped creme on the gateau.

He is an artist....both before and after any processing that may occur.

I really like the wave picture. Very nice. What you wrote is kind of interesting. Not so much the quotes but your perception on the threads. I really haven't seen any angst or ire, but news is what it is, often not so good. Really, everyone seems to get along pretty good at tug, imo.

Thanks for the post. It reminds me of where I like to be. :thumbup:
