An area of solace?
In front of this desk where this laptop is placed there is a Taiwanese DVD drama about a handsome young man who is also the eldest son of the owner of a hotel, while he fell in love with a girl who was the cleaner of his luxurious suite office.
The cleaner girl, reminiscent of the Buddha's disciple Venerable Upali, had come from a poor Cinderella-ish family, draws less than a percent of the hotel owner's son's income monthly, while her beautiful long hair, radiant smile, healthy energy, and youthful charm possibly is barely a solace as far as a theravadin follower is rightly concerned over, it made me watch the DVD from episode 1 to the end.
Heck maybe her hair is solace towards a guy more than herself.
I don't wanna say sorry, I won't wanna say oops.. it's just nice at a certain age watching DVDs about girls with long hair than girls with less hair. It was quite embarrassing when I told a nun I liked her months ago, works easier telling a lay householder girl that I liked her. Yes the long hair, that is likable too. This is soo mundane, and soo silly, yet this is soo truthful a personal truth that comes with a tinge of dukkha
My mom has got short hair
There's nothing, i.e. everything if you know Avalokitesvara, to be really happy and / or proud about..
