Thich Nhat Hanh, Cushion and Vase of Hope

I was sad to read that this Vietnamese philosopher  died yesterday, at 95. Thank you, Thich Nhat Hanh, for your gentle wise ways and words and a lifetime of compassion and dedication to peace.
I have quoted him several times already in my blog and here are some more of his wise, warm words.
“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh
I visited old friends today for a long overdue catch-up and loved this cushion.
Afterwards I walked in a park that I used to frequent as a child and loved it. There was an addition since I was last here many years ago – the Vase of Hope.
I had just pressed publish when the following came in from my sister who lives in Hawaii. Thank you, Deborah.

Invictus Trust, Eggs and Mini Eggs

My choir, The Suitcase Singers, collects for two charities each year. This year our local one has been The Invictus Trust, a Cornish charity set up to help youngsters with mental health problems. Please do click on the red link to read more about one family’s wonderful work in memory of their son and brother.

When their hens are laying, we get delicious fresh eggs from our Dear friends, today in a delightful 4 eggs container.

It was a day for a treat, some mini-eggs!
