Sunday

Lotus Bud

"Life is fragile, like the dew hanging delicately on the grass,
crystal drops that will be carried away on the first morning breeze."

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

(Quote from Offerings: Buddhist Wisdom for Every Day - Danielle and Olivier Follmi)

The beautiful lotus. Indeed, it is fragile. Sometimes we feel it more intensely than other times. Thank you.

Beautiful, Snap..... And on this miserably cold day in TN----I needed to see that beauty. I love the quote too--and it is correct: LIFE IS FRAGILE.

Hugs,
Betsy
