If you enjoy the sand background and the rock on this page, you might be amused to know that I took the picture of that sand with a digital camera - and that the sand is in a Zen Garden sitting on my desk, complete with three rocks.

So think of this page as your own personal Zen garden, and that rock in the center as symbolizing YOU. Look at the ripples around it. Look at the world flowing past it.

You know what the sound of two hands clapping is. What is the sound of one hand?

  The Zen Gardening Kit/Book and Japanese Rock Garden
On first glance this may seem almost silly. A desktop rock garden? I have one though, and it's really fun to play with. It's the basis of this page. This page IS the garden. When you get it just right, it's very calming to look over at the sand and remember that work isn't everything.
