Zen of Rocky

ZEN OF WEEDING These photographs were taken in my gardens over a period of several months during the summer and fall of 2007. The Zen of Weeding project had no purpose other than to pull weeds for a few hours each evening and weekend. I was never bored, even though my bucket filled up slowly. With nothing more than awareness, I was prepared for the moments that hit my heart.

As the Zen of Weeding unfolded, it occurred to me that my life could be happy even if I could never travel further than 20 feet from my house. Would I stay within those confines? Could I? There is much life within 20 feet of one's home, whether nature or people.
