                           LPC 2003

      Try to reduce everything that you
      see to the utmost simplicity. That is, 
      let nothing but the things, which are 
       of the utmost importance to you, 
       have any place.
                                                    ---Robert Henri

Edinburgh Botanical Gardens May 21, 2014

In this beautiful city of Edinburgh…I came to love it, especially in that enchanting time between Easter and mid-summer, when the trees clothe themselves in green and the fountain leaps in the garden under the Castle Rock, and the lyrical geometry of the flower-beds compels the citizens and students. Time is told in flowers in the steep earth-set clock.

Leaving something incomplete 
makes it interesting and 
gives one the feeling that 
there is room for growth.

Self Portrait

                LPC/Self Portrait
The artist appeals to 
that part of our being…
which is a gift and not 
an acquisition---and 
therefore, more 
permanently enduring.

              ---Joseph Conrad

The Zen Gardener

The Zen gardener has no mind to impose his 
own intention upon natural forms. While he 
never ceases to prune, clip, weed, and train 
his plants, he does so in the spirit of being 
part of the garden himself rather than a 
directing agent standing outside. He is not 
interfering with nature because he is nature.
