Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

PoTD - Punakha's Shabdrung Thankha

While last in Punakha there happened to be a national holiday honoring Shabdrung, the unifier of Bhutan.  Punakha has a huge beautiful old thankha (tapestry) that they unfurl just for the day. It will only be out for a few hours and then rolled back up again.  It is believed that to touch it will clear your sins and gain you merit.  I wish I had known before as it would have given me a chance to do more bad things first before being cleaned. :)
