Longido Brilliance

Your many-faceted brilliance is about you being not about their seeing. I know how, at precisely the same time each morning at around 7:40 a.m., the rising sun finds that sliver of an opening in the roof where the iron sheets do not quite meet, then the almost transparent dangling crystal hanging from the crossbeam awakens.

This Matters

This morning I heard the Buddha say, Cultivating good thoughts matters. Performing good actions matters. Everyday. This practice can change the world.

We have watched you peering at us from afar through telescopes from the other side of comets and stars and asteroids and meteorites. And you come closer, closer, closer in time with each passing year in your brilliant...
