Alea iacta est. The die is cast. Is it? Come on, put on a cone hat :) and join in!
In not 'only' looking to the signs of the gods but also to our fellow men & women, I take a look at the message (today) of Kimberly to the members of 'What is FaceBook?' Blog.
I quote her:
"This rant is not about the millions of irresponsible environmental decisions we make as a nation and a globe, which I could embellish upon for hours.
We seem to have lost connection with the raw qualities in life which are most beneficial. ones that make each day worth waking to.
* Responsibility * Loyalty * Peace * Honesty * Willingness * Motivation * Sincerity * Giving * Innocence.
Encourage social change."
Well quite a few things could be added to this list like for example 'mutual respect' etc.
Social change ... somehow it seems to be in 'our' blood to do this in violent ways ... for whatever reasons.
Thich Nhat Hanh, born 1926 in Vietnam is a buddhist monk, writer ... Zen Master. From the photos you see here, you can sense that he already had some influences into the history of the 20th century.
At PLUM VILLAGE Thich Nhat Hanh leads a year-round program of meditation practice for residents and for visitors who come for at least one week. The Summer Opening is usually from July 15 to August 15.

Finally, I put together a playlist of some youtube videos on Thich Nhat Hanh.
So to get some impressions of him speaking, here he is:
