my religion

There is so much inside of me that is unfathomable.
There is so much outside of me that is unfathomable.
How do I understand something about these two domains and the relationship
between them ??

I think that anyone who pursues these questions is wise,
 and that anyone
who is sure that he/she has answered these questions is a fool.
Anyone who uses these questions to tell someone else what to do
is cruel.

Myself, I am a hopeful agnostic; I will be wondering about
these questions until I die.



May today's flow of waters bring you
many good things,
good moments,
good people.



"the water of life"

At this time of great tension I wish to say that the earth that gives us life
is more precious than any of us or any group of us, and that
our own existence depends completely on understanding
with love our connection to each other and the world and
universe around us.

and the shining beaches of your love,
and the sun of your embrace"

Although 2012 is only one month old, it is time for me to start the 2013 calendar.
I have talked to the printer, and I will go see him in a few weeks.
Here are the pictures I think I will use.
I hope you like them.
