The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

When I look carefully
I see the nazuna blooming
By the hedge!

Cuando miro con cuidado
Veo florecer la nazuna
Junto al seto!

~Basho (1644-94)
