Nashville Tennessee

I have arrived at Nashville, TN. A moment ago, I took a short walk from the B&B I am staying. I stepped on the campus of the Belmont University. It is a quite a lovely place. After sunset, it was getting dark quickly. I snapped a few shots with my phone to document this visit. New place and new experience. Life is so dramatic.

I stayed at my Austin home too short, only got a chance doing one small painting. However I have got many other things done. In comparison, painting is rather easy. Life itself is much harder, and it gets more and more complicated and challenging. I keep reminding myself: I came to the world, the purpose is not to accomplish anything, but to experience the whole life process as sensitive as possible: the Time, the Space, the Change, and the Eternity.

Bonjour,

Je suis très heureuse de vous retrouver après mes longues semaines d'absence... Le soleil, la lumière et la végétation luxuriante de l'Île Maurice me manquent déjà ! Ma consolation est de pouvoir ouvrir à nouveau la porte de votre blog...
Je ne vous laisse pas toujours des messages mais je viens admirer votre travail.
Gros bisous

Qiang... I believe we do have at least one purpose to our lives, more than developing sensitivity to the processes of life. While we are learning from our experiences, we are also trying to find that purpose for ourselves. If one of the purposes is to aid others, to help them learn and grow and become more spiritual, you are doing a good job with your beautiful paintings and instruction. I see this as a purpose.. I hope you do too. Linda in Tucson
