Knothole Heart



“Still round the corner there may wait, 
A new road or a secret gate.” 
― J. R. R. Tolkien

Sometimes I find some really cool things during my walks.
The knothole on this tree and the spot left by a broken-off branch,
resulted in this heart shape.
Do you see it?

Life Bursts With Miracles

“Around us, life bursts with miracles--a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life's daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.” 
― Thích Nhất Hạnh
