Zen Spot #301 -- Mindfulness, meditation and dirty hands drawing a circle April 1, 2020 00:00

Finding inspiration in the muck

Imagine a beach covered with trillions of stones and pebbles that have been rounded and smoothed by years of washing together. If one closes their eyes and barely waves a palm along the tops of the pebbles, moving them to crackle, snap and improvise, one can literally feel the earth move.

Closer to the water, the mud, sand and muck that coat the rocks begins to cover one’s hands and, with the passing of enough time, begins to dry on the skin. It feels wonderful, then, to take that hand and rub it in a circle on a bright white sheet of paper. A texture is left behind that can’t be drawn.
