this world
bristles with thorns…
yet there are lotuses

~Issa, 1815

I am off on an adventure.  Well, not an adventure exactly.   More like family business.  I’m sure M and I will manage to find time for some small walks, hikes, and adventures.  I don’t expect to have internet access and even if I did, I think it’s going to be nice to take the weekend off.

Be back soon!

    LOVE this photo, Robin. Do you make custom greeting cards? (Like if I picked some of my favourite images, could you make them into cards for me?) Let me know! 🙂

  2. Have a great trip, Robin. The lotus is stunning. (Sorry to have been away all week. We had a visitor from Vietnam, and I’m only now getting back to the blogosphere.)
