Brothers Sojourn

My brother Mike and I rented a car and drove from Miami to Orlando last year. Our journey took us to a Buddhist Temple (Wat Dhammaram) in Kissimmee. We sat in the temple with Ven. Psunan, Head Monk, after a tour of the grounds. He spoke to Mike with a quiet voice, broken english, but with certainty. I was made aware of the Noble Eightfold Path, The Four Noble Truths and a brief history of the life and original teachings of (Siddhartha Gautama) Buddha. An enlightening visit it was. I was definitely in a reflective mood as we drove back to Port Saint Lucie. More about my purpose and goals. However, the extremely simple life, I have concluded, is definitely not for me...

I bought my Nikon D200 later that week.

Technical Info: July 31, 2006. Nikon D50, f/5.6, Shutter 1/50, ISO1600. Adjusted in Aperture and grains added in PS CS2.
