The Palm Springs Buddha

One of my favorite routines is to sit on my south patio and watch the sun rise. It is so peaceful, only the sound of an occasional bird or the palm fronds swaying in a gentle breeze. It is also my time to meditate and relax, even if it is as little as 10 to 15 minutes, it makes a real difference in the day. I especially enjoy watching how the sun's rays gradually illuminate the eastern side of the giant Buddha head statue on the patio. The photo above left gives you the idea of what I mean.
By the time the full sun is out, the Buddha takes on a different look and feel, don't you think? It has a peaceful look in the early hours, and then a majestic full energy in the full light of day. It reminds me to keep things in perspective, and to maintain that all-important balance in our lives. So 'The Palm Springs Buddha' may not be known to others, but he sure is known to me!

I just moved to Palm Springs right next to the mountains, leaving my Association in the morning the sunrise and snow capped mountains make me fall in love all over again.
