Orange you glad we went to DC?


I wish Buddha was in DC to say:

Be kind.
Practice compassion.
Stop contributing to the suffering of the world.

Maybe the monks said it.

I went to the exhibit these monks were from.

Trust me, for the monks in the exhibit it was very much about commercial success.

A thoughtful response. We need more messages like this in the world.

A very appropriate message that should be delivered by everybody.

Grandma said...

I second that wish. Lovely MM.

My MM: Standout

Yes, perfect for the photo and for our world. Let there be peace.

If there is any place that needs to get that message it's Washington, D.C.!

SouthLakesMom said...

How cool that you've been to Bhutan. I think that would be a better place in which to experience their true culture! Thanks for coming over to visit!

Love that shot! I took my son to D.C. for the first time in his life. I was covering the Pro-Second Amendment rally and took him along. He video taped the event for me, while I photographed it and took notes. He is a very tall kid. At almost 6 feet tall, he towers over little 5' 2" me. He was thrilled to be in the VIP press section with me. We walked all over D.C. and even got to see the President taking off in his helicopter from the roof of the White House!
