 Today we regretfully leave Yosemite and head south to Death Valley. The two certainly will be a study in contrasts.

In a city like Boston you see all kinds of sights. This man was talking to a tree.

I find it very easy to turn inward. Filling my day with me and mine and ignoring the world around me. With this world in such desperate need of more of the golden rule, withdrawing from the needs of others is wrong for many reasons. Selfishness is only one of them. Reaching out to others, if only to say hi how are you, should be practiced more by all of us

…especially me.

We’re building a garden next to our house. It has a tiny natural pond that is surrounded by weathered stones. There will be 2 small granite benches placed near the water to best evoke serenity. I don’t like to call our little oasis a zen garden because I am not a zen Buddhist but if I was, it would be.
