My dear friend M. sent me this photo from near her home in Victoria today.
She is an excellent photographer (especially portraiture) and lives in a beautiful city, which adds to the perfection of her photos:
I think the colours are so lovely. What a perfect photograph!
I feel very sad for the people in Boston who lost their loved ones today, and for those who are injured. What a rotten thing. I can only begin to imagine their loss and worry.
The world is a funny place - full of so much beauty and misery that I feel sometimes like my heart will break. The older I get the more depth of emotion I feel on both fronts - so delighted with life and sometimes so utterly worn out by it.
As my meditation teacher says, I must greet each with equanimity. Some days, this is very hard to do.
The first thing I thought about when hearing about Boston was our dear blogger friend Steve. Isn't it amazing that the blog world brings strangers so close to our hearts?
I hope you and yours are well tonight.
