LESSONS

Sometimes the lessons in life come at us the hard way. Big boulders that land on your head from some obscure cosmic source.

Sometimes the lessons come as daggers—calculating, sharp, and served cold by someone near and dear to us.

Sometimes they come as darts, delivered with deadly accuracy and borne on the wind of a chance enemy’s whim.

But the lessons in life will come.

And if we can avoid some of the blow by learning from the missteps of others, shouldn’t we try to do so?

Of course! :yesyesyes:

Now—wasn’t that the best justification you’ve ever heard for reading about other people’s screw-ups?? :mrgreen:

I’m blogging about it at the CHICAS today!

STUFF AND NONSENSE

I’m becoming quite the procrastinator…sigh…

Posting a few things of interest I should’ve done before this.
That’s the stuff.

The nonsense will be over at the CHICA’S site, where I’m blogging today. :waving:

There’s barely time, but if you’re interested you can still make it, lol…
Samhain is holding a Best First Line Contest on their weblog, but it’ll close today at noon.
The rules are posted there. Even if you’re not interested in posting, drop by to give it a read. Some great lines there!

Also, the Loose Id Authors are holding a JUNE BASH!
And they’re giving away prizes!

WHERE:
The Loose ID Community on Yahoo Groups. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LooseId_community/.

MANDALA

This breathtaking work of art is here for no other reason than the fact that it’s my blog and I’ve always thought they were beautiful. :grin:

This magnificent sand mandala is known as The Kalachakra.

They are maps of the universe and the meditative mind. Both primitive and exquisite, they are painstakingly created by hand, according to Buddhist tradition, with colored sand, using funnels and scrapers until the pre-determined pattern is achieved. Once finished, the mandala is destroyed, symbolizing the transitory nature of things.

Absolutely gorgeous.

I’m blogging at the Chicas site today, with information about next week’s CONTEST.

Come and play!! :waving:
