I feel like this


Here are these little clay statues I had the kids in the 4-5th grade class at church make. I got them a lovely mold to make the faces, and then I put them in the toaster oven, and then I got distracted by all the people and things I need to deal with on a Sunday morning ...

And then I smelled it. And I ran back into the classroom and pulled them out. Buddha's head caught on fire!

I feel like this right now. I'm trying to find contentment, peace, balance, and enlightenment. But, maybe, my head is on fire.


  1. I know that feeling.

    And it's a great story, even if it comes from a burning head. literally and metaphorically! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oops! We all have days like this! ( And I'm sure Buddha understood!)

  3. We all have days when our Buddha's heads catch on fire. Not all of us capture it so perfectly though!
