For an instant you can forget Covid-19 and feel the warm soil getting under your fingernails reminding you that you’re still a sentient being living on a miraculous blue planet.

Yesterday we visited a pretty garden near the edge of the ocean, filled with flowers and the scent of pine trees. 

What better place for the silent contemplation of the infinite by a saint and a buddha together.
