Distilling the heart...

心净若莲花
(heart pure as a lotus flower)

The perfect purity of the lotus flower blooms out of mud and dirty water. In the same way the heart should bloom, through love, dedication and positive energy.

yes it should, but it's not as easy everywhere around the world as in our rich coutries. If hidden from light by a huge tree, the lotus won't bloom.
But for myself, I don't see any image of flower of lotus, just question marks. What characters should be installed on the computer (I run Windows, not Linux) ?

I have no idea...The question marks you see should be Chinese characters, but I didn't install anything in order to see them...I just do.

Bon, chère Sparrow, je sens comme un manque d'inspiration, une déprime suite à la mésaventure LiveJournal.
Ah le blogging c'est ingrat, on se demande toujours ce qu'on y fait, pourquoi on y est venu. Mais moi j'aimais bien tes petites réflexions et tes photos. Bon j'espère que la thèse en littérature anglaise donne plus de satisfaction !

Salut, Marc....It's true, I've been neglecting my journal. Mais c'est pas une manque d'inspiration...it's just that I'm focusing all my attention and energies on other things. But I still want to keep on posting on here and will do so soon...

A bientot!

Hi how are you? I was looking through blogger profiles and noticed similarities, and found your blog interesting to me.

I have an art blog and am looking for new friends who comment and keep coming back are you up to it?

I hope to see you soon...
