Today was a very relaxing day. Tony, my host for tomorrow's FDPFAFDW show, took me to visit Pureland a nearby Japanese garden in North Clifton near Newark. It did not have an example of the beautiful gravel and stone zen garden I found in Cornwall last year. That was a special place and time though this garden in Lincolnshire had the quality that indicated the presence of the master in parts. It was clear that aspects of this garden were built by a clever and knowing hand. In addition to the garden the place has a meditation centre and tea room. The garden has a calming and rejuvenating ambience and was just what I needed. Tony and I walked around the garden and he took photos. I shot the butterfly and the koi video on my phone. We sat for some time in the sun and chatted for ages until the ever near, chilling, summer wind got up again and it was time to make a move.
what a beauty
This was a good time. If we can we should take time to relax in a quiet space. If we don't have time we should do all we can to make time so that we can be re-energised.

The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are.
