ZEN

During lockdown it was good to be able to walk or sit in our village Zen Garden. It was a place where the troubles of the world disappeared and I could relax and enjoy the beauty around me. Our restrictions are relaxing every two weeks. We have very few cases of Covid 19 in the country now and no new cases for a few days. However, after the 'Black Lives Matter' protest marches, we have to wait to see if the cases escalate before there is more freedom.      This is the gate to the Zen garden.

  1. That is a good place to take a rest indeed, I always walk here on the dike along the lake, that has the same effect I think. Watching the rippling water and the birds in the sky above, makes me feel good and calm.

  3. The gardens do look wonderful and lovely photos too.
    Let's hope there are no more new cases in Queensland and other States and Territories.
    We have been 27 days without any new cases and two with on the North West Coast...so fingers crossed.

  5. Beautiful gardens and great photos. We have no plans to go anywhere for sometime, We will wait and see what happens re the virus. Plenty to do at home and we have a big garden. I am also allowed to walk now without restrictions and where I go I never see anyone. Cheers and stay safe, t'other Diane

  7. What a beautiful place to chill out ! I would need that when making breaks between house and apartment, but so far it went smooth, I have a lot of help from my friends. Each day a little bit.

  15. What a wonderful place. I would spend time there every morning if I lived there. Or maybe in the evening, just at dusk ....

  17. Oh it’s wonderful to have a place like this to relax and meditate (or just veg out and daydream as I would do ... who knows, maybe that’s the same thing as meditation). I am glad you guys are able to lift some restrictions and that is because of your good leadership from the beginning. ... Ours just gets more awful by the day. Every time you think he couldn’t get worse .... (obviously I really need that Zen garden))).

  21. Yes, Diane, it is indeed very nice that you can escape to this lovely garden area. While we don't have something quite as scenic, we are able to get outside most evenings to sit by the riverside. And hopefully the protests won't result in new virus outbreaks and then further shut-downs.
