Blessings To All

I am currently reading Cave in the Snow, the story and life of Buddhist nun, Tenzin Palmo. In 1976 she secluded herself in a remote cave in the Himalayas for twelve years on the search for enlightenment. Her story has warmed my heart in the last few days of 2011 - has renewed my faith in the capabilities and depth of the human heart and has left me in awe at the purity of one woman's life journey.

I will have to rescind my statement of best book of 2011 because the story of Tenzin Palmo has touched me deeply. This is by far one of the most inspiring stories I have ever read. 

In the spirit of Tenzin Palmo, I wish each and every one of you a year full of compassion and love for yourselves and all those around you.
