There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
Dalai Lama


  1. So simple, yet not easy: practicing kindness. Today I read to my 6 year old neighbor and received smiles and giggles in return.

  2. Wonderful quote! Goes perfect with the simple but beautiful Sunflower. Nice pic!

    That's okay! Levonne, come back and visit us soon! Susan

  4. Hi Levonnne - I've just caught up with your plans for the end of the month. Another big change for you! I admire your sense of adventure.
    There will always be Canadians who disparage their closest neighbour - just as there will always be Americans who think we are all French-speaking, fish-eating socialists....but mostly you will find people who are tolerant (and especially in BC) love our friends to the south.
    I'll follow your move with interest - who knows.....perhaps we'll meet up when I'm over on the mainland working.

    1. Hi Pondside. We're going to station ourselves in Parksville. I'd love to meet you sometime in June or July in Victoria! Thanks for those wise words of wisdom. Its easy to lose perspective!

  5. Well Levonne, we are going to be neighbors, we are 15km away in Nanoose Bay. Don't worry you will be welcomed and you will fit in just fine.
