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.
