The Art of Art

Looking eastward

"The art of art... is simplicity."
~ Walt Whitman

Simple Contemplation
Meditation, prayer, and an empty mind. 
The birds know the sky.

A Grand Teacher


"A garden is a grand teacher."
~ Gertrude Jekyll


Small little patches of work. My top garden is so huge, so I have many patches to tend to, but I am so satisfied by the baby steps, what I am able to do, with time and love.

Here's the result of two mornings -- yesterday and today -- waiting for the sunrise.

We are here for only a short time. Let's live with joy, show those we love that we do, and create our art.

Before

After
 "All gardens are a form of autobiography."
~ Robert Dash
