The Buddha's Curl

Steve is friends with the director of a local Buddhist center, and today we attended a guided meditation session there.  Baby McBaby did not meditate at all.  He spent the entire time doing a little Highland jig (probably in honor of Burns Night tonight).  In the corner of the hall where we were relaxing, one of the center's members was carving a life-size Buddha.  He's been working on it for two years and it's quite impressive even in its incomplete state.  As we were leaving, the artist cut off one of the Buddha's curls and gave it to me as a gift for the baby, which I thought was so nice.  Baby McBaby, however, has not shown his appreciation by being born yet.  Maybe tonight.

Best baby gift ever.
Someday he will be born, really truly.

I was wondering if the time was fast approaching. It seems the time is never fast enough! :-)

Was is the fat Buddha or the skinny one? Maybe it is the Chinese in me but I prefer the fat one with huge earlobes.
