February 24, Tibetan New Year, Seattle Sunrise

February 24, 2020. Seattle, WA

Turning of a cycle.
The year is now here.
My spiritual friend, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, writes:
"As we enter this Year of the Metal Mouse, we can resolve to take life one day at a time and practice gratitude for the many wonderful things that life continuously offers us. We can also appreciate the immense goodness that exists in this world (though is seldom publicised). A day is well-lived if we can use it to bring some happiness and comfort to those around us and if we carry out our work in the world with awareness and kindness rather than with confusion and gloom. The Dharma points the way, but we ourselves must walk the path."
There is goodness.
Listen to the bell sounding.

SO Beautiful and true!! Thank you for the blessings!

And so many birds-- Even though we have many fewer birds around here, I have noticed that they are very vocal and more plentiful just before sunrise and then they seem to settle down just after the sun crosses the horizon-- Have you noticed anything like that where you are??

A metal mouse sounds so valuable and bright. I'm a wooden Horse- sounds more muted. What are you?
