I was here - a graceful presence

I have spent a lot of time on the shores of Lake Michigan lately and am reminded to keep calm and be present.  I am remembering walking along the water's edge and coming across piles of rocks, deliberately placed and perfectly balanced.  There is a Japanese term for these piles and it is "Obos". Often only three rocks to say "I was here"  "I built this with my hands"

I was here....I made this with my hands.


  1. So Zen! I miss you! I see you have found your thing. Your are blogging a lot. Are you teaching yet? Are you using tiles or making you own sizes?

  2. I live on the shores of Lake Michigan and love the idea of "obos". Many thanks!
