A Little Message from Thich:


Image from Thich's Plum Village website

Here is a quote from Thich Nhat Hanh, to help cheer us up,
after some downer posts :)

We never get good news.
We only hear bad news
from the media.
But the good news is:
You are still alive
and the linden tree
is still blooming
after the harsh snows
of winter.

  5. Love the quote - I wonder if we will ever reach a point where it's good news that 'sells' and bad news that falls by the wayside...
