In honor of Mary

Here's a beautiful song that Chris composed to honor Mary. It's been playing frequently in the apartment all weekend. The photo is a note from her I came across yesterday. Mary, thank you for all that you've been for us. Words feel inadequate, but maybe the song can convey the fullness of the love and meaning we are feeling.

(thank you, Miguel)

"Again, what will promote the shift of awareness is for you to remind yourself many times a day that you’re not a body in a world, experiencing the world. You are Immovable, Omnipresent Mind that has no boundaries, experiencing Ideas. The flowers are Ideas; right now they are Ideas. And I will keep saying this to remind you of it so that you’ll remember to look at it a new way.

And your ego can argue and say, “Well if it’s an idea, how come it has a seed?” Well, the seed is an Idea. But you know what? The whole Idea of this flower includes the seed and the plant and the blossom. And they are all marvelous Ideas, and they aren’t really present on a timeline where it starts from the seed and grows into the flower that makes new seeds. It’s not really a cycle, although you experience it that way. The whole Idea is present. And as I’ve said before, you could just as easily look at the plant that brought forth these flowers and say that the flower drew the plant up from the seed; that the end elicited the beginning.

You see what I’m saying? It’s just a matter of how you want to look at it. It truly is. And I’m not talking about getting imaginative and making things up. I’m just pointing out that you could just as easily assume that the completion of the idea drew forth the beginning and the interim and the end. Just as easily as you could say I’m not sure whether Jesus walked on the water, or the water held Jesus up. Was the water supporting Jesus, or was Jesus overcoming the laws of matter? It doesn’t matter. Just know that the way you look at things governs how you determine what they are." Raj 5-09-04

OMG, shoes!

Flats by Newbark that look like espadrilles, made of leather...and don't make you look like you're ten. Pricey, but nice.

Ash, did you see these Doc Marten's on Notes by Naive?

From the sublime...

to the ridiculous? Photo from Garance Dore's blog. To quote Sister Wolf: "What will prostitute's wear now?" It's all humorous.

Has that lovely shade of blue always been there?

Here is a closer look.
