God must have had fun building the world

I think God had fun building the world, because we are made in his likeness, and mankind is a builder and a maker. Yesterday I started building a miniature garden in an old shallow wooden box. I want a Yin/Yang garden, and the white sand covers half of it now.

Today I collected darker sand, a variety of rocks and some miniature cactus and succulents. It will not be a genuine Sand and Stone garden, but I'm inspired by viewing the Sand and Stone garden in the area next to the tea house at Portland's authentic Japanese garden. My little garden is 25 inches by 17.5 inches and fits nicely on a table on our balcony.

A story in sand

Hints of actions past
or yet to come

Proof of life in feathers and stone
