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

Fort Tryon Park Gardens. Manhattan. NYC
-Homage to
From Carlos Castaneda's Journey to Ixtlan

People tell us from the time we are born that the world is such and such
and so and so, and naturally we have no choice but to see the world
the way people have been telling us it is.
Seeing happens only when one sneaks between the worlds;
the world of ordinary people and the world of sorcerers.
The real thing is when the body realizes that it can see.
Only then is one capable of knowing that the world we look at every day
is only a description.
My intent has been to show you that.

Only as a warrior can one survive the path of knowledge,
because the art of a warrior is to balance the terror of being a man
with the wonder of being a man.


Thanks for visiting, please be sure that I read each and every one of your kind comments, I appreciate them all. Stay tuned.

You experiment in such unusual ways and always produce an interesting photo. Your quote makes me contemplate both the usual and the extraordinary.
