The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

The Great Wave


The Guardian had a very nice article on the artist Hokusai and his most famous painting, The Great Wave.

I can't copy from the website to print an excerpt. The full article may be read here. There are many of Hokusai's paintings in the article. Enjoy.
