New York City Photo Blog

I was in New York City doing some readings and enjoying a city I consider one of the friendliest, safest and most vibrant in the world. So I took some photos. Hope you enjoy them.

A photo blog

I went home to the Outer Hebrides and took some photos along the way. I did a 100km single-speed bike-ride to maintain my training schedule. I confess I am insane for doing my charity cycle against the prevailing Hebridean winds! Anyway, here are my photos. Enjoy! 🙂 x

Buddha of the Week

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.” Buddha

Buddha of the Week

Tomorrow (not today, as many mistakenly believe) is the shortest day in this part of the world. The Buddha of the Week is early in one sense, but belated in another (work commitments on the lovely Isle of Skye meant I couldn’t post a BOTW last week). As usual, the photograph is one I took myself. This Buddha resides in the V&A, London, a wonderful place to while away an afternoon.

Be a lamp unto yourself. Work out your liberation with diligence. – Buddha

We shall be leaving Skye later today. It’s been an intense and productive few days. We’ll be revealing more about the project in due course. All I can say for now is that it is wonderfully ambitious…

This Buddha of the Week is especially dedicated to those redoubling their efforts for Rohatsu…

Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much
as your own unguarded thoughts. Buddha

Buddha of the Week

“As irrigators lead water where they want, as archers make their arrows straight, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their minds.” – Buddha
