Zen in Saigon...

I took a walk around the neighbourhood this morning..
with a lot on my mind.
As I walked, it all became clear to me.

The broom used to keep the surrounding roads free of leaves.

The simplicity of a single flower.

Some days are just like that, 
you need to focus on the little things 
before you can grasp the big picture.
It helps tremendously.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam


  1. I think you could probably write an entire book just on that gardener! Look at that speaks volumes of tales.

  2. I think that kind of focusing is what gets me through most days!!! So clearly, I loved this. Such beauty all around you...even in the most mundane objects...

  3. Beautiful post Jeanne.. indeed I need remain focused on the little things in life, its them that makes my world go round! hugs from Brissy and me xx
