Good Morning!!



We are probably all aware right now that it is the 50th anniversary of the Barbie doll.  I am grateful that she was created after my time, and she is certainly providing the subject matter for commentary and articles this week.   I like this poem as a way of looking at change.



Buddhist Barbie
 
In the 5th century B.C.
an Indian philosopher
Gautama teaches "All is emptiness"
and "There is no self."
In the 20th century A.D.
Barbie agrees, but wonders how a man
with such a belly could pose,
smiling, and without a shirt.
