New beginnings

I will be posting three quotes for the next three days from the book Buddhist Offerings.      I was asked by fellow blogger, Sketchuniverse if I would do this, and thought it a gentle way to begin the new year.

‘Life is fragile, like the dew hanging delicately in grass, crystal drops that will be carried away on the first morning breeze.’

This reminds me to cherish each and every moment.

    Good day to you – Wifey.

        Dumb question, I’ve been thinking about this since I saw your post. Was the hummingbird part of the statue or was the shot by chance. Pretty cool if it was.

        Someone sent me this…and so I can’t answer…I just thought it perfect to begin my new year. If, as you say it was a shot by chance… very cool. 🙂
