A Small Vastness

A  L  O  H  A !
" When the winds
 of change blow,
 some people build
 walls and 
build windmills."
                 Chinese proverb

Big Talks on Big topics
are too soon wrecked
on the shoals of Big Dogmas
and Big Emotion.

A small shared joke,
or kindness
is a surer route to 

Be Vast
by keeping it

See the blossoms and OPEN sign?

Enjoy Explore
Pay attention to
the "little things.

Be present-
 listen to others.
Leave them space
to pause,
then they will
relax and share
their truth
 with you.

love the dress!

being "right here"
not hurrying away -
these are the ways 
of a powerfully
radiant person

Don't try too hard -
Don't zone out.
This is Zen:


Thank YOU
for pausing here!
                      Warmly, cloudia

one of the great mysteries...like dying to find life...being vast by being small...its the little touches that can lead to big changes...

I think my problem is that I either try to hard or too little. I need to zen out.

It pays to engage your inner windmill. Love the paradox: be vast by being small.
