This is located in the Portland, OR Japanese Garden. It is a sand/rock garden whose name I forget. Something like "Peace Garden" or something like that. They use bamboo rakes to create a different pattern each day. The patterns are significant to the Japanese and have religious or meditation meanings.

What a wonderful, and yet, what a strange idea. It takes away a sense of permanence, replacing it with permanent change.

Yeah, I've never really understood that. It's to do with water isn't it? They can't have a lake in their garden so they use sand to depict it. I practice bonsai, but some Japanese things fly right over my head.

I like this, very peaceful. I would love to see this from overhead (but I suppose a helicopter would make the lines go away, phoo). The raking is part of the meditation if I'm not mistaken.

Thank you. BTW, the name is Cal. Since this forum software doesn't support signatures, you had no way of knowing that.

Sorry Cal, it was just a type mismatch while copying your login name.

I'm really missing previous forum signatures

I am, too. I wonder, is there any way to reprogram a function key so all we need do is press it and it'll print whatever we want--a signature for instance?
