"Some Summer Zen...Ahhh!..."

Introducing...
my new "Sundays of Summer" zen feature...
right here...on my blog...every Summer Sunday...:)
Ahhh! :)
This is Sunrise Buddha.
At his back is the dawn of a new desert day
filled with the seasonal sizzling,
and the stressful, scorching summerness
of the desert southwest.
To instill much needed inner balance he turns away
from this bright threshold...
as he
allows his spirit to fly free and soar...
to dance high above the clouds so to eventually
emerge bliss filled,
serenely calm,
and refreshingly cooled.
His eyes peer ahead as he imagines great
possibilities.
Hmmm...he smiles...
"I wonder what surprises this day will bring?"
Stay tuned...:)

“All that we are
is the result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything.
What we think...
we become.”
~Buddha

It would take a buddah to survive those torrid summer days and to be so zen about it.
