The title of the attached photo is “The Buddha teaches on impermanence.”  I owned this concrete Buddha for about 15 years. He’s traveled with me from home to home always positioned outside my front door. When I come home with the issues of the day weighing on my mind he reminds me that I’m home and welcomes me home into the present moment. Now he reminds me of the impermanent nature of all we behold.  – Paul M
