    Taigu,
    This is wonderful, thank you - a reminder that our practice encompasses many things..... humor, warmth, and spontaneity..... not just suffering and pain. All of life.... they are not one and not two.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this, Taigu!
    I love Cartier-Bresson's photography, and his wife really managed to catch that "decisive moment" in her picture. ;-)

    Gassho,
