Through the gates after a long gorgeous park setting of well established members of life. painters and sizable trees on such reaching and bold strong roots base. people living in the shadows of giants like dear friends, loving some even more than others. giving respect to the water and ancient trees that have held their place for years and years of change and care. the water that treads around them and soaks the earth to give life to the living kings of Kyoto. the shrines and temples are set into this arena of green expansive parks and sites. it seems like it is endless the walk but you just go from idea to next thought and then you are someplace that is completely different and amazing. i am posting this journey that just seemed to be endless and changing.
