Sharing wishes with strangers makes a powerful emotional statement.

Shinnyo-en Lantern Floating 2014



You write your wishes/prayers on the Lantern then float it in a body of water. I’ve done various volunteer activities with this Buddhist Temple.  I don’t attend as much as I used to but I still get together with my Japanese friends for Buddhist services, chanting and meditation.



My Greatest Wish is to spend more time with my brother Stephen who is an Awesome Autism Guy! ♡ ♡ ☆ ☆

      1. Thanks! Yes. Despite the fact that I joke around about not making New Year’s Resolutions/Goals/Plans retirement planning has been in the picture for me since I turned 50 years ago. Thank God I get a small pension from a previous job, I have the opportunity to work overtime at my current workplace and I will also get a pension from them when I retire and finally I pay into the 403B which is like a 401K. Five percent of my salary is taken out for retirement and I can’t touch it until I reach 60. All these things are automatic and once you set them in place they take care of themselves. I’m looking forward to moving into the next phase of my Life so that Stephen and I can enjoy more fun times!

  1. Hope your wish comes true. You and your brother must have such a strong bond. That’s lovely. I sadly lost my beloved young brother last year. We were very close . It’s so important to make the most of NOW.

    1. I’m a Christian but I enjoy going to the Buddhist Temple with my girlfriend for spiritual support and friendship. It’s a calm peaceful environment that helps me cope with Life’s chaos.
