"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."


- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry


I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

Buddha By The Wood



I've had just enough time to...   meet Buddha by the wood

Came across this Buddha exploring and strolling around an apartment block in Munich



It is said -
You can find Buddha anywhere
In every person that you meet
In the calm of every storm
In the silence of every noise
In the depth of every night
In the beauty of every sunrise

Still I was surprised –
When I found Buddha on a walk
In a distant land
By a pile of cut wood
Sitting there, serenely
Where he belongs

    One evening in Munich, having some time to kill, I spent it in aimless wandering; straying from my hotel, walking through suburban homes seeking nothing yet with a keen expectation. I do not know what I seek yet I will know what I'm looking for when I find it. I ended up in a quiet apartment block, apparently not an exciting place for a surprised find. Everything was neatly arranged and well kept. Not a disorderly area when one will discover a hidden treasure. I took a right angle turn and almost miss it had I not looked down looking for something of interest. There it was, a Buddha seated next to a pile of cut woods on brick floors. I would never have expected this in my wildest imagination, a serene Buddha seated outside an apartment block in Munich. It brought a smile to my face as I recalled the saying - "you can find Buddha anywhere", Indeed.

    'You can find Buddha anywhere ' ...and ...indeed ....you found him in a place where you least expected to ! So ...the wisdom and truth of the proverb has been confirmed by your own experience . Great image and story, Jimmy ....very well done .
    And ...thanks for your good advice about the spider who purloined my point-and-shoot . From now on, I'm not going to trust anything that has more than 6 legs !! :-))) Have a nice day :-) .

    What a wonderful find Thou - and even more special to find it in the most unexpected place. It's like a perfect grounding and calming reminder of what really matters - and sometimes of the futility of our occupations and attachments. Thank you my friend for sharing this wonderful find and your wise words with us : ))
