Instant global consciousness.

In Japanese flower arranging (Ikebana), space is what makes beauty. The space between the flowers and branches is what allows the eye, and the heart, to delight.

Perhaps it’s the same way with war and hate and humanity, crime, society, corruption, politics, prejudice. Space. Perspective. Breathe, in and out. That’s all that’s required for instant global consciousness.

    Great blog! Sorry to change the subject, but, since Nashville is a big up and coming city, I’d like to find a great sushi restaurant or Japanese restaurant in Nashville TN. Have you read any recent buzz? There’s a new one called Nomzilla Sushi Et Cetera, but I’ve only seen a few reviews. Here’s the address of this new Nashville Sushi Restaurant , 1201 Villa Place, Suite 101 Nashville, TN 37212 – (615) 268-1424. Thoughts? Thanks!
