  1. I have just started a photo project called Imagery of Zen. We tend to rush from point to point during our busy days, considering only the beginning and the end of our journey. We miss the in-between because it has become surplus to requirement. We need to find that in-between bit again and take the time to look closer at what we have lost. We need to see with the eyes of a child and rediscover the beauty in simple things. And we need to become excited by it.

  2. Today is the second anniversary of the death of John Daido Loori Roshis death. I never met him, but his photographs and writings (about Zen, about art, about photography) have been a great inspiration to my own photography over the last few years.

    With gratitude.

What the saints and sages say ( or try to express – since words are merely the blunt tools of the limited intellect ) after a lifetime of meditation is what the artist intuits in the moment of pure creation. The visual arts are such a wonderful mode of self realisation that is a tragedy they are 'taught' so appallingly in our so called educational system which serves only to dull or kill completely this human facility
