Hi Barry,

And thank you! The only problem is.... I have too much to say for just a short comment!

The very best modern art exhibition I've ever been to (and I've been to many!) was a Viola show in Seoul last year.

It was so good that, in response to your excellent post here today, I've brushed off and re-posted my old notes. Hope you don't mind!


All the very best Barry and thank you for a magnificent week of Ox Herding!

With palms together,

  • Zen teachers sometimes use the Ten Ox Herding Pictures to describe the path of awakening. Within this metaphorical framework, the ox symbolizes the secretive, unruly human mind.

American Zen
