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! ♡ ♡ ☆ ☆

Have a great Monday and a Fantastic week DeBorah. xxx Massive Hugs xxx
Again, I love to see both of your appreciation and joy to be with each other!
I’m looking forward to retirement so Stephen and I can go to a warmer climate and really enjoy ourselves.
Retirement definitely IS all it’s cracked up to be! I can vouch for that. 😎🌞
I can’t wait. I’m making plans now for my retirement. Now off to work to earn those dollars.
That is a beautiful outlook, Deborah and I hope it is coming true sooner than expected!!
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!
You took good care of your future and I am sure it will all turn out well!!
The Future is coming and one has to be prepared.
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.
Thanks. Yes Stephen and I are very close. It is just the two of us. My condolences and sympathies on the loss of your brother.
I really love the bond you and your brother have. I hope your wish comes true.
Thanks. It will. I’m moving and building towards retirement. I’m determined.
I love the lantern. I am agnostic, but feel drawn to the buddhist lifestyle and wisdom.
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.
I adore how loving you and Stephen are 🙂 I have seen the lanterns but never done the lighting of it myself
Stephen is my best friend. The lantern ceremony was wonderful.
Aww ❤ Wishing you a wonderful day
Thank you very much!!
