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.


  1. How lovely. That is wisdom. Thanks, Sherry.

  2. Well, it won't be, after the bulldozers arrive to start building the new condos.

    Oops....did I just ruin the mood?

  3. Hee hee....that's about right though!

  4. absolutely agree.
    short but brilliant poem.

  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...

  6. it never hurts to see the brighter side of things. :) thanks for sharing thich nhat hanh's words of wisdom with us.

  7. A lovely reminder that we too are still blooming in the winter of our lives...:)
