Living down the street from a Zen Master

Zen Shorts. This is a Caldecott Award winner for the beautiful artwork.Jon J Muth. Worthy of being framed. His work are visually tantilizing. Gentle, simple yet rich, filled with depth and wonderfully colorful. This book is not like any other picture story books that I read, it introduces readers to a Zen approach to the world by three stories told by Stillwater, the Panda that just moved into the neighbourhood.
One rainy afternoon, a giant panda appears in the backyard of three siblings. One by one, the children visit Stillwater, sharing a relaxing and fun afternoon with him while listening to his tales.

With the internet, you can do last minute shopping in the comfort of your bedroom or office. In the past, the only way to buy goods was to visit the shop physically. Due to our tight working schedule today, it is getting more difficult for us to find time for shopping. But now with e-commerce, purchasing goods online is easy and convenient. condolence wreath delivery
