The Buddhist Temple

A 45 min drive from where we live stands this magnificent Buddhist Temple. We were overcome with emotion at the mere sight of this holy building. Moya(our teacher) and I decided to take the kids on an outing today. The colors,the paintings... In reverence we took off our shoes and walked the great halls in peace. The monks were gentle, soft spoken, friendly and welcoming. Ever been somewhere and thanked the heavens for your beautiful day...?

To end my day of peace I have played my favorite song by ADELE...'Don't you remember'
Anyone like it...oooh I love it.

A happy day and weekend to you

What a magnificent temple. I was able to tour some in Tokyo and in Taipei and the serenity that comes over one is remarkable.
I love Adele's song(s) and play them all the me inspiration.
Love you dear friend--wish I was with you all on your field trip. XOXO

Hello my friend, What an opportunity to visit such a place. I have never visited a Buddhist temple but hope we all get to one day. It looks so beautiful there and you must have all enjoyed the time you spent at such a place. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We were blessed with incredibly warm spring days and it is set to continue this week. Feels almost unreal to have that warm sun with us! Love to you!
