Compassion is…

Compassion is to share the pain without sharing the suffering. – Shinzen Young

My heart feels your pain even when my physical being does not. I have compassion.

As the Sun Rises….

As the sun rises….

Still hidden.

On the horizon.


Already hiding, but leaving it’s footprint.

It’s risen and after a standing ovation, the audience is moving on.



I love how the colors change as the sun and clouds change the availability and angle of light, both in the sky and on land.  Even the sand looks warmer once the sun has risen and it’s rays have embraced the earth and sea.
