The end of one year and the beginning of a new one
seems like an especially good time to think about —
and, if possible, make — snow buddhas: snowmen
in the shape of Buddha, that remind us of the imper-
manence, creativity and connectedness of all life. A
year ago today, we had a posting about snow buddhas
that is as timely and informative as ever, and includes
a number of haiku and photos.

Whether your profession (or your home life) leaves you
stressed or joyful, making a snow buddha, and watching
its progress is fun and educational.
If you haven’t got snow where you live, mud
and sand also make great materials for your
the kids make a snow buddha
and a mud buddha
snow turns to rain -
our Buddha’s visit
