Buddhist Christmas Birthday Card
My friend Heidi in Santa Barbara is a Christmas baby and has had to compete with baby Jesus for attention all her life...
...which may partially explain why she became a Tibetan Buddhist as a young adult.
Happy birthday, Miss Heidi, and hope you like your miscellany of San Francisco Asian Art Museum Buddhas.
On a darker note, I'd like to offer a lump of coal to both the Roman Catholic and Mormon churches this season.
They have notoriously harbored pedophiles and polygamists respectively for decades, and then have had the utter gall to moralize to the larger secular public about love and marriage.
That's not something Buddha would have done...
...nor Jesus either for that matter.
