Zen has a phrase: wabi zumai… this means a quiet way of living. It seems today we may have a great opportunity to live this quiet thoughtful way.

grateful these days for…


• tea time and documenting my slow days

• cliché tea tag saying

• watercolor painting of Idyllwild

free coffee


If it wasn’t for my coffee being free, I wouldn’t be driving through starbucks or McD every morning!


Plot twist. Aliens are finally sending cure to earth.

Nah! this is just an asteroid that safely passed by earth early this morning. No damage or impact done. But there’s still one more passing by at 3pm, a smaller asteroid according to NASA.

We should be lifting each other up
And cheering each other on
Not trying to outshine one another.
The sky would be awfully dark with just one star.

everyday life koan: the unanswerable questions of our lives are the greatest teachers.


“It is in the present moment that life, peace, joy, happiness, and well-being are possible.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh

“Everything is changing. Whatever you pass, don’t cling to it. Eventually the mind will reach its natural balance where practice is automatic. All things will come and go of themselves.”
― Ajahn Chah

“To the degree that you condemn and find evil in others, you are to that degree unconscious of the same thing in yourself.”
— Alan Watts

little things that matter

“Only those who have cultivated the art of living completely in the present have any use for making plans for the future. For when the plans mature they will be able to enjoy the results.”
— Alan Watts
