Grace by Eric Enstrom, found a print at the thrift shop the other day. My grandparents and great grandma had it hanging in the dining room. A famous photo by a Minnesotan. Grace, Dining Room, Famous Photos, Art, Growing Up, Kitchens Tables, Eric Enstrom, Grandparents, Painting

Mala “Prayer beads, or japa malas, are used in many forms of Mahayana Buddhism, often with a lesser number of beads than the 108 on Hindu japa malas - usually a divisor of 108. In Pure Land Buddhism, for instance, 27-bead rosaries are common. Some practitioners use malas of 21 or 28 beads for doing prostrations.”
In my youth, summer was my favorite season. Oddly enough, since the shattered snow globe of baby death changed the very core of my being, I now find winter to be my most favorite season. And summer? well, I could live without summer for the rest of my life and be all the happier in its absence.
