Nothing Remains
Ja Jai Taje Jaina Ja Pai Ta Thakena

Whatever appears to leave us
Actually does not leave.
Whatever appears to stay with us
Actually does not stay.
Nothing remains.
Everything is a mystery
Of constant gain and loss.

Oh...but I do hope the ability to love is one the few things which always remains in one's heart..

thanks for the post down below Yoli, this is so terrible for Chinese people.

Have a lovely week end

That's a very Buddhist quote. I love that picture!

Oh your photo is magnificent. How imaginative!
And I think your words here are true. I was thinking of a lost grandparent today. Their presence was so very strong Yoli, I could swear they were beside me. Then I felt utter joy. I had this feeling of pure joy sweep over me, and for a fleeting moment, I knew that death never separated us.
It is still very hard not actually seeing her though. Very hard.
Much love to you today, and everyday sweet lady!!! xo
