14 -15 - 16 - 17 - 18 - 19 - 20

 "As a lamp, a cataract, a star in space,
 an illusion, a dewdrop, a bubble,
 a dream, a cloud, a flash of lightning;
view all created things like this."
The Buddah - from the Diamond Sutra


Listened to, read and shared

Walking meditation began at Gramercy Park

 where Apple bank offers "Totally FREE Checking"
 continued Eastward, crossed 1st Avenue
"Om Mani Padme Hum"
onward to the East River at Avenue C
sauntered along River-Cove Park to 23rd Street
West to 2nd Avenue and South to 21st Street

Downtown by bus to write with my group

 Two hours later:
A three-part Thanksgiving piece is in process

Returning to wellness
Two hours later:

Walked home

 Two hours later:
went round the corner on West 25th Street
to the Serbian Cathedral
 then on to the Eternal Light Flagstaff at Madison Square Park
Dedicated on Armistice Day 1923 commemorating the return of soldiers and sailors from World War I.  Commissioned by Rodman Wanamaker at a cost of $25,000, it was designed by Thomas Hastings. Made of Milford pink granite, it's inscribed with the names of significant battles.  The ornamental iron cap of garlands and rams heads was sculpted by Paul Wayland Bartlett

No photographs, just resting, writing and being

Sheltering inside the Amalgamated Bank
(23rd Street at 3rd Avenue)
A short while later
Found on the street
 Still warm
 No breath
No marks
 Such beauty


Not the end
Return to Innocence
