Colors of Fall -

I thrilled to the colors in the grocery today.  Russets, orange, and yellows were dominant  in the flowers, and the fruit and vegetable aisle.  My eyes perked at so much beta-carotene.  Suitably nourished, I can see in the dark.   There are sweet potatoes, yellow tomatoes, persimmons, squash, pumpkins.  There are also nuts.  After all, we also need fat, and recently I read how important it is to eat a few walnuts each day, so now I'm nibbling on those.

Driving back, I was sitting at a traffic light, stewing a bit at the time delay in my so carefully constructed schedule when I looked, really looked at the bumper sticker on the car in front of me. "You are the Buddha," it said, and next to the words, kind of floating, was a heart.

I lifted on a smile, inhaled deeply, exhaled, calm.

I am the Buddha with eyes to see in the dark, and all the time in the world.
