FROM THE GARDEN OF ZEN
My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen

A sleeping cat in Engaku-ji
On the weathered corridor of the Hojo hall, an aged cat is catnapping peacefully to dream a brief dream.
Like this old cat, we are dreaming the fleeting dream called a life.
In the Zen temples of Japan, cats are traditionally cherished by temple people because they are believed to protect precious sacred books from the damage by rats.
