This is the first in a series of images I created from rocks that I gathered along the Snake River on my daily walks with Wiley. I hope you enjoy my latest obession. :o)
This series is called ‘Daily Tao’. Chinese symbols taken from the book ‘Tao Daily Meditations’ by Deng Ming-Dao. The book was given to me by a dear friend, and former lover. I enjoy picking it up and reading the entries, finding something new to take from them each time.
From ‘Tao Daily Meditations’ on Laughter:
Hilly village lanes,
Whitewashed sunlit walls.
The laughter of children.
We as adults dwell upon our grizzled complexities, our existential anxieties, and our preoccupations with responsibilities. We hear the merriment of children and may sigh over our lost childhoods. Although we can no longer fit into our old clothes and become young again, we can take comfort in the optimisim of children. Their rejoicing can gladden us all.
