Saiho-ji slideshow

Sit back and relax.
Imagine you are walking around the winding paths of the Moss Temple in Kyoto.

It is silent and still.
The air feels thick with peace, calm and contentment.
Autumn leaves glow in the gentle light.
A faint mist shimmers above the water.


Update March 2007 :- I think that the slideshow (which was hosted free) only lasted a few months. So I will upload a few of the photos that were included in recompense!

The other place

Just a quick note to say that I have uploaded a post over at ArkSanctum called Still Travelling.

It's strange that I am still trying to find my writing style over there. I dont want to get into just quoting others, neither want to just pen poems. I am new (this lifetime?!) to Zen but not Buddhism in general, so am still feeling my way.

This is a small section of a photo I took at Joan-gu in Kyoto. For the whole image and post you can visit by clicking on the ArkSanctum link above.

Good news, I have booked my flights for an autumn visit to Kyoto. The call was too strong to resist!
