The Peace Accord

The Peace Accord was the first of the "Buddha" Collection or what subsequently led to the Buddha collection. This was exhibited in Catmasutra 1, where the tree frog brokered a peace accord with Halo. The tranquility of the lotus pond in one of those large earthen pots and the serenity of frangipani flowers conspire to be the perfect setting for this seemingly impossible peace treaty. I can't say why but if there's a species of frogs that I would even like, it's the tree frog probably because of its small size, vivid colors and big eyes! I used to be an editor for children's books, and whenever there's a picture book story about the Amazon forest, there would be a tree frog. And it is here at this precise moment that I discovered the "zen" side of Halo, and henceforth, there would always be a painting dedicated to the cat's contemplation of life's quieter moments.

Here's my top 3 "life instructions" from the Dalai Lama for this entry:
1. Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.
2. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
3. Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.
