We’re frankly broke this year for my birthday, and I know that Kristen has had a little anxiety about it. We had discussed her getting me a cool case for my phone, but that didn’t happen, due to finances. Fortunately, I had a solution!
I’ve been eye-shopping this little tealight candle holder at work for several weeks. For all that I am a solitary Zen Buddhist, I have a certain veneration for the Medicine Buddha. He’s often pictured as either being blue (lapis lazuli) or having some part that is that color, so this little icon is particularly apropos to my inclinations. He might not be in the typical presentation, but it’s the thought that counts.
For $6.00, it works. 😀
