Thank you

You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

Kahlil Gibran

When I read the comments on my blog this afternoon they made me very grateful. To be able to share thoughts with one another and to receive the open responds of other people is truly beautiful to me. At times like these I can feel the string that connects us all :))

So this little angel is for you :) It is a very old angel with only one wing and one food, but it is still one of the dearest sculptures I have. To me it is very symbolic because by sharing not only our virtues but also our vices we truly share from the heart.

So I want to thank all of you for your open and lovely responds and inspiration.
Big hug and take care :))

A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer
than one who is at hand.
Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more
clearly visible to one passing through the valley
than to those who inhabit the mountain?

Sas, Such a sweet post. Beautiful quotes and that little angel is so adorable. As usual so kind and generous of you to thank those who comment on your blog. We should be thanking you instead....You are my angel for sure... I don't know if you realize how much you add to my life (as well as others) with your honest and heartfelt posts. Your posts are so endearing and beautiful but at the same time profound and soulful. Thanks for being there and sharing so much love, my friend...Big hug to you too...

Sas, I love both the quotes, especially the second one is so true. It's true of you in fact that you give of yourself so freely! You have created a community of friends from around the world, by sharing your beautiful talent with photos and genuine thoughts/words. You truly have special power of drawing strangers in to your world and awakening us to beauty we may have overlooked! I am grateful for having found you!!

Hello Sas,
It is nice to know you are feeling better. Your one wing and one foot angel sculpture is lovely.I like both the quotes of Khalil Gibran, they are beautiful and so true.My PC is having some problem with yahoo mail/flickr,not able to login, so I have to wait to post my shots.
So from now on you can stop saying HiHi and take good care of your health(just kidding,you can say whatever you want).

Dear Vani, Rupa and WAI :))

It feels to me like we are all on the same journey here and reading your comments underlines that feeling.

I read this saying today and it reminded me of you;

You are me and I am you.
It is obvious that we are inter-are.
You cultivate the flower in
yourself so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself so
that you do not have to suffer.
I support you you support me.
I am here to bring you peace
you are here to bring me joy.

- Thich Naht Hahn

Take care my friends and I wish you a beautiful evening :))

with love, Sas

How beautiful. That brought tears to my eyes. :))))

Sas, that's a beautiful saying by Thich Naht Hahn. We are all inter twined as humans, no matter how far apart we live or "different" we may think we are. I will print that quote and put it on my fridge as a reminder, it's applicable to all relationships in life! Thanks so much.
