In a Zen garden...

... there are 15 rocks, but only 14 can be seen at one time. There is always something hidden, and there are more things in this world than those to be seen with our eyes. The same with our bodies; the hair, skin and flesh we see are the veneer to bones, connective tissue, muscles, tendons. So much beauty inside and out, such perfection of mechanism.

I like this garden, one of my favourites in Kyoto. Such a peaceful afternoon in Ryoan-ji.
