Been There Done That

“If you must begin then go all the way, because if you begin and quit, the unfinished business you have left behind begins to haunt you all the time.”
– Chögyam Trungpa

Been There Done That

2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

I named this one “Been There Done That”, because it just seems familiar and comfortable.  There’s something casual and relaxed about this window.  It’s open to the fresh air and a little worn.  It’s not too pristine, yet it has some color.  It just looks like it has seen some life.  I know, it’s just a window, but I like it.  🙂

About Chögyam Trungpa

Tibetan Buddhist leader Chögyam Trungpa was instrumental in bringing Buddhism to the West. He was born in 1939 in Tibet and was recognized as the reincarnation of a Rinpoche (enlightened teacher) at 13 months old. After moving to England, he abandoned his monk garb: He wanted his Western students to perceive the Buddhist teachings without becoming distracted by exotic trappings. He founded Naropa University in Colorado and wrote several books. He died in 1987.

    I love the brickwork in this one, Beth. I want to put a potted plant or flower on the sill. Now, why would I want to do that? Have a good day!
