why don't we know this?

"you can explore the universe looking for somebody who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and you will not find that person anywhere"
(a buddhist saying)

"you make your own world ~ by the kindness you pay to others, even with the thoughts in your head"
(a quote from a dharma teacher)

fig, tea and granola

the weather continues to be cool and overcast which calls for an afternoon cup of tea and a treat. soon it will shift to iced coffee ....

our monthly batch of granola (added diced dried fruit) ... the heat from the oven was welcomed on this cool and breezy afternoon.

enjoying the daily routine
