We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile. – Earl Nightingale

Orange Buddha

My orange Buddha went missing a couple of months ago. He sits by my front door in a collection of other Buddha’s. Today he reappeared, not in the same spot  but in a pile of books in another room. I am happy to have him back. Everyone in my house denied touching him or moving him. I will assume he took a break on his own and was now ready to return for all to enjoy. Welcome back!


Orange Buddha – the essence of Buddhism which is full of wisdom, strength and dignity.
