Welcome - this beautiful photo is called 'BLESSINGS'
It's painted by Robin Urton - locate her works by typing her name into Google. I think this is the most beautiful painting I've seen in my life. Robin is a buddhist; a calm and loving soul - a delight, and I thank her for sharing this with me as well as other beautiful pieces of her works.

Just a note to any reader.....

As both Jessica and I share our symptoms; our 'history', and how we wound up searching for a remedy to the lethargy - fatigue, and other symptoms and difficulties associated with adrenal failure and hypothyroidism, this will be added as a 'new post'.

Our progression; how we manage to make strides and steps toward better health, all of that will be noted below the 'history', so to find our 'progress entries', scroll down to the bottom part of this blog.

As we learn of books and other resources, the sidebar will have those entries and links.

We welcome your visit and any comments/ideas you'd like to share with us. If you've started a similar blog, do let us know and we'll add the link. "To your health and ours".....Diane & Jessica.

From the ACCESS TO INSIGHT web-site:

I took this photograph about 2 miles from where we live. We have beautiful mountains all around us; we sit in a valley of mountains and new the Mojave Indian Reservation.
I love these words that I took from the Access Into Insight web-site - the author grants permission so long as we credit the site. You can read more by linking to the site from the side-bar.
A refuge supreme
They go to many a refuge,
to mountains and forests,
to park and tree shrines:
people threatened with danger.
That's not the secure refuge,
not the supreme refuge,
that's not the refuge,
having gone to which,
you gain release
from all suffering & stress.
But when, having gone
to the Buddha, Dhamma,
& Sangha for refuge,
you see with right discernment
the four noble truths
the cause of stress,
the transcending of stress,
& the noble eightfold path,
the way to the stilling of stress:
that's the secure refuge,
that, the supreme refuge,
that is the refuge,
having gone to which,
you gain release
from all suffering & stress.
