Buddha | Waterville, WA | July 2019

Buddha loiters on the fringes, I’ve noticed. He stands dusty on book shelves, next to shoe boxes in closets, peeking from windows in small towns. He seeks the low places — no spotlight, applause or worship — where his smile might lift a heavy heart. Perhaps we find Buddha when and where we need him most. Not as savior, mind you, but as a reminder to live light, love lots.
