The Story of the Chinese Farmer (2:20)

I don’t often reblog things. But I couldn’t help myself here. This is One of my favorites! My daughter (4yo) jumped up and screamed “Just like Stillwater in Zen Shorts (author Jon J. Muth)… I love that my daughter recognizes Tao and Buddhist story telling. Makes my heart sing!

Good night everyone!

About Yanic A.

Hello to all of you and thank you for stopping by! My name is Yanic. I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother of 2 beautifully complex and unique children and a lover of all things inspiring. Having started a personal journey of self discovery when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago, I've since embraced a daily life of simpler pleasures and gratitude. As we get to know each other, you will know me as a quilter, a gardener, a Tao cultivator, a vegetarian foodie, a true believer in a healthy family life as being the secret to my happiness and hopefully as time goes on, a friend... I will try to share with you my days as they unfold, speaking of my happy successes without censoring my challenges, trying to make this blog a true portrait of the ever-changing path that I have chosen for myself. I'm hoping to find in these pages others to share with and learn from, bringing to light the absolute connection in all things and people, showing this world as being a true community.

  1. Thanks for sharing, love it!

    I have to admit I love Alan Watts, could listen to his voice all day long.

    I enjoyed watching this, Yanic. Do you know the Windmill Farmer? It’s a short film my children loved (my son was a little obsessed with windmills when he was little).
