    Finding Zen in a City Garden

    I was recently asked to introduce two International Communities in Bloom judges to our new Zen Garden. Last year Sarnia took second place in this competition; this year we are competing with a city in Turkey, another in Slovakia and a district in Seoul, Korea. The judging took place from Sunday to Wednesday this week.

    That's really cool!
    And I like that they found Shokai so beautiful that they showed a photo of you, instead of the garden.

    Please take my words with a big grain of salt. I know nothing. Wisdom is only found in our whole-hearted practice together.

          This is wonderful Shokai! Will have to stop by for a tour when in your neck of the woods. =)
