Falling Monks




Yes there are falling leaves and there are falling Monks.  In Zen tradition
 there are many Monks who fail to understand. I only pick upon 
this due to my commitment to understand the differences in religious 
traditions.

Thanks Gwen -I love the way you describe my work. Better than I do myself.

Great image. I'd never heard of, but like, the concept of monks who fail to understand: makes me think there's hope for me, for everyone who fails to understand.

Thanks Doudy-sometimes my work has a dark edge to it and makes me shiver too. Laura-this is a re-occurring theme for me. I'm not really sure if I'm thinking of not understanding or afraid of understanding something.

wow, this is really interesting, not just the content but how you did it and visually. I like how you can't notice the monks straight away. Sort of suggests how one can start to fall without even noticing it. It is spooky, in a good way.
