Kes Conjures Compassion

ImageFriday has rolled around again. Ahhhh, how nice. Wouldn’t you know it, Kes has been reading Thich Nhat Hanh. This is what he would like share :

“How marvelous is the reality of the present moment! Each leaf is a universe of taste, scent, and memories. Each one is a unique world, both spiritual and temporal. A single leaf encompasses the entire universe.” (call me by my true names, The Collected Poems Of Thich Nhat Hanh, p. 106). 

Kes has been meditating on each leaf he comes across in our neighborhood. Often it will be a little plant growing at the foot of a maple tree, seemingly growing out of the sidewalk. He is encouraging everyone in the neighborhood to put away their cell phones and notice the plants and trees. He might just give your hand a little kiss.

    Thank you Miss Harper Lee. I hear it is getting really hot in your neighborhood. This is actually my first summer away from Louisiana, and it is hot here, but not as hot as where you are!
