So…

buddhapetalsweb I give up. What’s next?

My grandfather, an earlybird pilot, Walter E. Lees, brought this buddha back from China in the 1940’s. I never got to talk to him about where and how he found this. He died when I was 7 (and I knew nothing about Buddha to ask questions.) He did give me my first beer, though, and he was also left-handed. Me, too.


Change

So I moved a framed piece of cloth, a small part of a handwoven coverlet made in the 1700’s by one of my ancestors, from the place high on the kitchen wall where it has hung for at least 25 years.  Big change.
