Peaceful Spark from Buddha: Blue heron on rocks in Greenbrier River, near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, in The Great Smoky Mountains


I wanted a Spark about peacefulness and found this quote from Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama) to be perfect. Our world, in which we live today, is a complicated place, and we all can use the guidance of Buddha. (I am sorry it is a bit hard to read.)

The background is one of Dad Tom’s photos. It is the Greenbrier River, near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, in The Great Smoky Mountains. It’s definitely peaceful.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”

I think Calista Jo is the absolute picture of peacefulness, making her photo appropriate for both Sparks and the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. You can go there by clicking on the Awww badge.
