the dewy path

Until the ripples cease, I don't feel able to write about my time in Kyoto. Some things need to settle first. But it was a wonderful time, and healing too I think. These ripples are in a stone water basin at Kennin-ji, it is shoin style, thus close to the verandah.

And these ones in gravel are from Totekiko in Ryogen-in, which the sign says "is the smallest rock garden in Japan. The main point of this garden is the sandy ripple on the right. This shows the truth that the stronger the power of stone thrown into the water is, the longer the ripple is".
