Cherry blossoms …

The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention.  When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers. (Nhat Hanh)




Listening ears

Hola, fellow friends and travelers,

How is life treating you these days? It seems everywhere I go, inspiration lurks. On a recent bus ride (yes, I like to be driven – but more on that in another post) I overheard this conversation between two seniors:

Senior 1 (after telling a few not so funny jokes to Senior 2): “Oh well, as a kid I used to annoy my grandmother with all my constant talking, too …”

Senior 2: grunts

Senior 1: “She used to say something to me, I still remember to this day. ‘Boy, she said, you have two ears and one mouth for a reason!”

Spot on, if you ask me, right?

Now you know reason no. 1, why I enjoy taking public transportation.

Travel on! Balu 405
