A moment of Zen

We all need a moment of Zen. That time when the world melts away and only living in the moment matters. It is easier in some places than others to find that special something. For me it is Monterey beach in California. The sound of waves, the peaceful feelings of thousands of relaxed people all on their own pilgrimage to their personal peace. Nothing (for me) can top the old (older than me) art of building a zen garden from the beach stones. It takes a focus of mind that refuses to let other things interfere. That report due on Monday seems a distant memory for a little while. So I will leave you with these images of my Zen.

Removing yourself from your writing, artistic, creative, chaotic world to focus on just the rock currently in your hand is a gift to yourself.
