A couple of days ago, as I was thinking about a close friend whose father is living out his final few days, a quote appeared in my inbox in an email from gratefulness.org, attributed to the Buddha.
I’m wary of fake quotes and I don’t know if the Buddha actually said those words. But I like them. I wrote those words down the left side of the page and I wrote some more words down the right side of the page. This morning, I heard from my friend that her father had left his body. This is for Francis.
