Dreaming in a japanese garden

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden,
but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
Minnie Aumonier

  1. Have you ever thought about publishing an e-book or guest authoring on
    other sites? I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would love to have you
    share some stories/information. I know my subscribers
    would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

  2. It isn’t a zen tower, it is a Torii- which comes from Shinto and is basically a sacred yoni birth/rebirth/blessing/healing gateway, hence the red. Shinto predates Zen Buddhism. There is some crossover, but you generally see Torii at Shinto shrines and not Buddhist temples.
