On A Day Like Today

Green harmony in Kyoto

The Japanese have a saying, that if we take the life of a flower, we have an obligation to make it look more beautiful. One of the principles of Japanese garden designs and Ikebana is that man plays a small part in the overall design. Heaven, Earth and man combine together to make an asymmetrical triangle. Heaven is the most important element; Earth, the second most important element and man – the smallest part of the asymmetrical triangle ~ but also the most beautiful (extract from Ruth Grosser’s book “Ikebana at home”)

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!
