Cham 16 (Biwo Mwen!)

The landscape on the large wall - so pretty! 
A floral vine around one of the windows.
Since I came back from Canada at the end of April I have had an office. So wonderful to have a place to meet with  all the precious ones who need a little boost or a little squeeze or a little love... and, while I was on retreat last week, a visiting family, daughter fresh and full of artistic generosity, painted a mural in the room. I think it is just beautiful. I am so thankful they took the time to plan, be creative and execute the wall's new beautiful dress. It is room sixteen in the orphanage and it is sweet and peaceful and a good place for good work.
The 2 and 3 yr olds kept running back and forth saying "wowww" "WOW!" "wowww" and touching the walls.
