Wiener Dog Love

“Never let life’s hardships disturb you…no one can avoid problems, not even saints or sages.”
– Nichiren Daishonin

Boy, that’s a good one for me.  😀

I still don’t have my work computer, so I grabbed something off my home computer to post today.  I should get it back today, then begin the process of reloading all my programs, drivers and backup.  What a time eater that’s going to be.  I sure have missed it, though.   I’m happy to be getting it back.   🙂

About Nichiren Daishonin

Thirteenth century Japanese monk Nichiren Daishonin is known as the founder of the branch of Buddhism that bears his name. Born Zennichi-maro in a fishing village in 1222, he changed his name when he founded “True Buddhism,” a return to the non-discriminatory basis of the religion. His huge following and his dire predictions made him unpopular with rulers; according to legend, he was about to be killed when a freak astronomical phenomenon blinded the executioner and saved Daishonin’s life. He died in 1282.

    Didn’t you do puzzles a while back that were similar to this and painted for a benefit? This reminds me of those.I like this with round eyes, triangular hihlights and patchwork body. I imagine the nose to form a heart shape. Have a great week end, Beth! 🙂
