the water does not try
to reflect the moon
and the moon has no desire
to be reflected
but when the clouds clear
there is the moon in the water

wood + school = good
Matsudo workers by BC Gov Photos




Wood you believe how good school could be . . . | The Japan Times Online

I originally didn't plan to post this on aikiweb but I decided to. It is a link to an interesting article by C W Nicol about the advantages of using wood in construction. Following his advice wood was used in the rebuilding of a school in Miyagi after the Tohoku Earthquake.

C W Nicol is a naturalist living in Japan. He is famous in Japan for his work with nature. He originally came to Japan to study karate. Moving Zen his book about his karate training in Japan was one of the first books I ever read about karate. It's a very interesting and personal book. Anyone interested in martial arts or in Japan would enjoy it. Below is a very complimentary review of it by a karateka.
