Kuan Yin and La Virgen
Trees in Snow
When I stepped out onto the deck, it was dead calm. I could feel the first breezes move, it felt like the world coming alive, taking a breath. It still looks pretty quiet, I guess, so maybe the windstorm everyone was predicting will pass by Seattle (or at least Ballard).
I like the shrine. And I'm glad we missed the wind!
Yeah, I'm glad we missed the wind, too. I haven't looked at any reports yet, I hope it wasn't too severe. And thanks!
What a beautiful altar & shrine!
Also, lovely balance in the tree shapes.
Glad you like it. Hopefully there will be more plants and I will spend more time meditating on it during the warmer times.
Dialogue overheard on Luke's porch:
The Madonna: "What the hell is this stuff?"
Kuan-yin: "Chill out, chica."
I should probably tell you the following three Factoids That May Only Interest Me:
1) Growing up in Latin America is like hearing "Ora pro nobis" sung a million times a day.
2) I once wrote a paper entitled: "Virgaud Intacta v. Virgaud Furiosa: Madonna, Queen of Heaven v. Madonna, Queen of Pop"
3) The thought of Kuan-yin saying "chica" made me snicker like a 12 year-old.
The Madonna: Please, I'm cold here. I've never seen this before.
Kuan Yin: Tough love, baby.

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind something something something
