5/25/2013 May your heart always be joyful…may your spirit always be true…. forever “young”

Have you ever noticed how vibrant and joyful some older monks look?
They seem to embody the potential for one’s outlook to be….
“forever young”

For all of us…

the body, of course, ages…
impermanence, of course, reigns,
but may each of our hearts, minds and spirits
continue to be…

“forever young,” to kathy,  represents…
a twinkle in the eye,
a kind, open, flexible, forgiving and loving heart,
a mind that is curious, explores, investigates,
one that discovers and experiences
“forever young….”
“forever true….”
