summer’s day – a duet
of frog and shakuhachi!

(found on a blog
called Myoan Shakuhachi)

The Japanese feeling of restraint and order apparent in this image is illusory. The rocks and bamboo are mere details in a riotously playful and chaotic garden that surrounds a house notable for its wild imaginings and its undisciplined ebullience.

 John isn’t living there at present … he’s recently become infatuated with an old boat on Nelson harbour and has been devoting a lot of his time and energy to making it seaworthy.
