Zen was captured at midday. It was springtime, so although the sun was high in the sky and quite bright, it was also overcast, cloudy, and rainy. Suddenly, there was a moment when the clouds parted for a moment, revealing a winding path through the tall, swaying bamboo. The dampness of the rainfall made these beautiful surroundings look, feel, and smell incredibly alive. Every breathe was enhanced by the perfume of green, growing things and the earthiness of the damp wooden pathway underfoot. As I followed the path, eager to see where it would lead me, I could see even more lush plant life ahead. The air hung heady and delicious with promise as I thought to myself: “This must be what it felt like to walk through Eden.”
