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

Quieting The Mind

Picasso once said that it took him four years to paint like Raphael, but it took him a lifetime to paint like a child.
To see things in their original beauty, we must crack the shell of preconceptions with which adults are saddled.
 Zen has little to do with ideas, and its masters consistently point to the concrete. 
We are surrounded by magic. 
We literally have to go nowhere.
John Greer
