Meditating Frog

We went shopping for garden statues again, and this time my sweetie found a fun one. He usually likes the naked young women; i favor Buddhas and saints.

We found a meditating frog at the local farm and garden store. Perfect for the front step. Just the right combination of nature, spirit, and whimsey. I can't help but smile when i walk in the front door, and i hope visitors smile too.

"Breathing in, i calm body and mind.
Breathing out, i smile."

This verse by Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us to bring our attention back to the breath.

Whether we are sitting in meditation or walking in the front door.
