  1. I read this charming little book every year & find my self surprised and warmed every year.

    “Men have forgotten this truth,” said the fox. “But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for you rose…”

    1. This is a book particularly close to my heart as well. I grew up with it and then later received a very special copy from my dear friend and teacher who was a second father to me. The wisdom of the Little Prince is universal, yes? From a mindfulness perspective, we can see we are all inter-connected, interdependent. So, if we can tame our own hearts and minds, become more compassionate and wise, we will take good care of the fox, the rose, all of it. We are them and they are us. Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you stop by frequently. Wishing you peace, freedom from suffering and the causes of suffering.
