My block depicts myself in my "clothing free" garden and some old friends who used to inhabit it along with me.

Because I live in a tropical environment, bromeliads abound in my garden.  None of them have been purposely planted.  They are all happy accidents, appearing nestled on a tree limb high up or peeking from under other plants on the ground. They seem to thrive well in their untended airborne state.  Their spiky leaves and petals are bright bits of red, pink, orange in a sea of greens and are especially brilliant when lit up by the sun.

When I think of a garden I think of peace.  Our front yard garden is a very peaceful and relaxing place to be.  One of the first things we planted when we moved here was a Buddha statue under our huge Cedrus Deodora tree which dominates the yard. Like anything left outside in the Pacific Northwest, our Buddha is slowly turning green.  The statue has become one with the garden, radiating serenity and inviting guests to linger and enjoy.

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."  Buddha
