Allow The Birds To Perch And Fly Away


Son no. 1 (in blue) is back from uni for a short break. When he goes back to attend his last schoolyear, son no. 2 (in black) will join him... Before June, not one, but both will be in the big city far from home.

*Sigh*

Time flies.

"Consider the trees which allow the birds to perch and fly away without either
inviting them to stay or desiring them never to depart. If your heart can be
like this, you will be near to the way."

-Zen Buddhist teaching

  7. Time does fly by so fast. The good thing about this is no matter where their feet may take them, they always go back to the home they grew up in.

  8. It's great that you are cherishing this season of your life with very big boys.
    Your home looks so nice and neat! My kids are small so it's always magulo here.
