The tunnel under the train tracks in Alexandria, VA always looks damp and forbidding. I’ve walked past it many times and it always seems to draw my attention.
Here’s my submission for the weekly photo challenge subject Heritage.
I’ve been practicing Buddhist teachings and meditation for the last 10 years or so. Striving for non-attachment, self awareness and compassion for all sentient beings has changed my life in ways that are difficult to explain.
Sitting at a table in a restaurant I noticed the lighting gave my sunglasses a mirror effect and decided to take this photo with my iPhone. It seemed like the perfect choice for this week’s photo challenge theme, <a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/reflecting/”>Reflecting</a>.
Return is the movement of the Tao.
Yielding is the way of the Tao.
All things are born of being.
Being is born of non-being.
From Tao Te Ching: A New English Version by Lao Tzu and Stephen Mitchell
On a recent trip to New York City I visited the Rockefeller Center Observation Deck. From there you can see most of Manhattan. It’s a pretty incredible view.
