Philosophical Fridays – Radiant Expressionism


“While you are walking, smile and be in the here and now, and you will transform that place into paradise.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Philosophical Fridays – Today

“What day is it?” asked Pooh.
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
A.A. Milne

Philosophical Fridays – Sacred Space

Colors blind the eye.
Sounds deafen the ear.
Flavors numb the taste.
Thoughts weaken the mind.
Desires wither the heart.

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  Chapter 12  Translation by Stephen Mitchell

Philosophical Fridays – Footprints

The tide rises, the tide falls,
The twilight darkens, the curlew calls;
The little waves, with their soft, white hands,
Efface the footprints in the sands,
And the tide rises, the tide falls.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
