Prayer flags

About this time every year I put up prayer flags around the Goble home, with the permission of my family, whose home it also is. Prayer flags are so gay, so enlivening, I find them irresistible, although I confess that I am hazy about their spiritual significance. Having said that, I do handle them with care and with what passes for reverence chez moi, having been made aware that a failure to do so can offend people of devout belief. When they're installed I will post a photo of them, but presently I'm waiting their delivery from Wisdom Books ~ fine on-line suppliers of Buddhist artefacts as well as books.
