    M.I.L.K. of human kindness
    "Without the human community, one single being cannot survive" - the Dalai Lama as quoted in Friendship, a book in the M.I.L.K. (Moments, Intimacy, Laughter, Kinship) series which Linda bought me for Christmas. It's a lovely selection of pictures from all around the world portraying many aspects of friendship; entertaining and enriching like the picture here, of two elderly friends protecting their noses from the sun on South Beach, Miami.

    It's the sort of book to turn to when sated with words, worn out with activity, maybe disheartened by some human behaviour, for refreshment and renewal. Turned to it this evening after a week of activity and people work, and a day spent mostly in church ending with the delightful little Christingle service where children's faces light up the Georgian building by standing around the walls holding their tiny candles. Some good M.I.L.K.-like images to be seen there.
