~ The Master observes the world but trusts his inner vision...He allows things to come and go...His heart is open as the sky ~ Tao Te Ching ~ Lao Tzu

May your heart be like a lake...with a calm still surface and great depths of kindness. ~ Lao Tzu



WE are the blackboard
life is the chalk
and initially it seems
death is the eraser

yet once the chalk is erased
the deeper truth IS
we are still the blackboard

never do WE not exist
we do not have to be erased
to realize this

Since chalk is chalk, leave the baby-fun pictures out of the equation, if you please.

Wise and meaningful are your words, Debby; substance to reflect upon. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

I go along with this philosophy. Beats the hell out of what I have heard most of my life.
