It’s been a while since we’ve had an update on the office flora. I thought perhaps it was time for one, or maybe I’m just a little lacking in blogging inspiration today. I moved the plant on the window sill at work over to my new office — I actually have an office now. I’m thinking of transplanting my plant — I’m not sure what species he is — into a proper pot with some soil instead of his current little glass of water. Perhaps he would appreciate that — if plants could appreciate anything.
Today was the official relocation of the office to the new building. Just about everything has been taken over and is in the process of being set up. It’s strange seeing how bare everything looks in the old office with everything gone, a kind of empty feeling and you can hardly imagine that it was once so busy and full of life.
They had a little ceremony this afternoon, kind of a symbol of transference and blessing to the new surroundings. It is a Buddhist charity after all and although I don’t believe in all that, I helped out nevertheless with the incense and carrying across a couple of little Buddhas. I find it interesting how people can put such faith in certain things, devote their lives to it; on what grounds to we find ourselves flung into this devotion?
It seems as long as there exists a suitable environment, faith will continue to survive, being relocated from place to place, evolving in the minds of the faithful.
