Much in the window… nothing in the room.


We have bigger houses but smaller families,


more conveniences, but less time.


We have more degrees, but less sense


more knowledge, but less judgement


more experts, but more problems


more medicines, but less healthiness.


We’ve been all the way to the moon and back


but have trouble crossing the street to meet the neighbor


We built more computers to hold more information


to produce more copies than ever…


but have less communication.


We have become long on quantity but short on quality.


These are fast times of fast foods but slow digestion.


Tall man but short character.


Steep profits but shallow relationships.


It is a time where there is much in the window


but nothing in the room.

~ The 14th Dalai Lama

Dear Frieda: It say the 14th Dali Lama. One can never be sure of anything these days. I got this from another website.

I really enjoyed reading this, whoever wrote it. Hit the right spiritual spot on this day! I love the picture, too. Did you take it? If you did, may I borrow it to use sometime? Be good Serendip. Missing you lots.

Nazy jan: Yes, I took the picture. A bit blurry since I have a cheap camera. You can have anything of mine in this blog and you don't need to ask. Take good care sweet.
