The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Roman Wheels


A lover knows only humility, he has no choice.
He steals into your alley at night, he has no choice.
He longs to kiss every lock of your hair, don't fret,
he has no choice.
In his frenzied love for you, he longs to break the chains of his imprisonment,
he has no choice.

A lover asked his beloved:
- Do you love yourself more than you love me?
Beloved replied: I have died to myself and I live for you.
I've disappeared from myself and my attributes,
I am present only for you.
I've forgotten all my learnings,
but from knowing you I've become a scholar.
I've lost all my strength, but from your power I am able.

I love myself...I love you.
I love you...I love myself.

I am your lover, come to my side,
I will open the gate to your love.
Come settle with me, let us be neighbours to the stars.
You have been hiding so long, endlessly drifting in the sea of my love.
Even so, you have always been connected to me.
Concealed, revealed, in the unknown, in the un-manifest.
I am life itself.

You have been a prisoner of a little pond,
I am the ocean and its turbulent flood.
Come merge with me,
leave this world of ignorance.
Be with me, I will open the gate to your love.

I desire you more than food or drink
My body my senses my mind hunger for your taste
I can sense your presence in my heart
although you belong to all the world
I wait with silent passion for one gesture one glance
from you.

By Deepak Chopra Feat. Demi Moore

These photographs are so telling! I love the color, and the sentiment behind them. The ordinary life made beautiful.

This post has me spinning in circles.

Different modes of transportation...good theme and the photos you chose are terrific. The bikes seem awfully big for those women! Bicycles seem to me to make good sense!

Sencilla y bonita serie. Relajante. Me disgustan esas fotos callejeras de personas a las que se les "dispara", queriéndolas herir.
La primera de arriba, tratamiento genial.

I am so sorry for how infrequently I leave comments about your superb work My time is spread so thin. This set got my attention. It's a brilliant essay on Rome, Romans and how they get from place to place. The first and fourth knock me out.

Your photos are superb, and I love what you've done with some of them, like that incredible silver on the RR. And the poem......
