I am a student of Buddhism. I attempt to practice what I am learning and to be ever mindful of my actions. The way of Zen offers supreme guidance to those who read its texts and study its teachings. Visually, Zen finds expression in many things, none more pleasing to my eye than the Japanese Garden. In Seattle, we are blessed with several such public spaces, and these impressions were inspired in the Japanese Garden in the Seattle Arboretum.
