restoring zen

ah...

there’s something to be said for working in a zen garden..

removing soggy leaves from the smooth, black stones.
using only my two hands to sift the cool, white sand.
tidying bamboo shoots with a delicate wire-tined utensil.
tracing lines in the sand with a chunky, wooden rake.

  2. funny name mags, though you could be positivity exuder/great friend…or postcard writer/travelista extraordinaire…maybe even blue eyes/orange soul…
