    My town at dawn.

    I went for my long run today and got out way before dawn. A little after the first hour, the sun decided to come out and greet me.

    The statue there is called Minerva, and is the symbol of the city.

    I always get up at 4:30 AM, even in weekends. Yes, I know I'm crazy

    For weekdays runs I get out at 6:30 AM. For weekend runs I get out at 6:00 AM because training takes longer.

    One of the little things I enjoy is watching sun rise while listening to birds, to my breathing and your my pounding the pavement

    May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind
    quickly be freed from their illnesses.
    May those frightened cease to be afraid
    and may those bound be free.
    May the powerless find power
    and may people think of befriending one another.

    My daily walk

    This pond is directly across the street from our house. I walk by here with Rogers everyday, this morning I actually noticed it.


  8. #108
    This is a nature walk about 10 miles from the house. We just discovered it but it's going to become a regular spot for us.

    Itís that time of year again in Holland. Lots of walks with the kids! Funny detail: a lot of orange this year in preparation of the coronation of the new Dutch king had a few weeks ago. ( even the Japanese emperor and his wife ( !!) attended. I actually saw them, will they behead me now?) Nature decided differently and icy winds kept it all underground. Too little too late but still beautiful!

    He's coming home to live the rest of his life with your family? Very cool if that's the case. He doesn't know anyone as well as he knows you, that part is certain.

    Enkyo, I've seen pictures of those tulip farms and the looks simply amazing, though I think their effect on my allergies might be disasterous.

    Wow! Some wonderful photographers in this sangha! I've not had a chance to check out all the pics yet, but so far my favorite is the one of the sign saying to "leave your regrets here".

    Oh that is the rather portly Maitreya (also known as Hotei or Pu Tai), the future Buddha. More about him here ...

    Out for a walk a beautiful fall walk the other day and came across this. Now, the question is ... am I a dog, or a goat?

    Yesterday I went to see this crazy guy laugh, pick his nose and talk about peace and kindness...I love it

    2013-10-13 09.39.06.jpg

    I know my photo doesn't look ok, but in the giant screen he was using anti flu spray, and encouraged people to take pictures of him doing so, laughing all around....something like this

    :GetContent.jpg

    He reminds me some little green guy from a galaxy far, far away

    I'll have to take a look at that Buddha next time I am up in Idylwild. I am hoping to go for a snow trip when there's some more rain.
