I've been looking at oriental art web sites this morning. Tokyo National Museum and Kyoto National Museum preserve and display great art treasures. The Japanese have a tradition of reverence for art. I'd like to visit Japan.

Perfect focus, perfect balance. The aging priest in his old robes is as ugly as a pig and as supple as a tiger. His concentration and physical balance are perfect. He lives simply and attentively, and teaches us by his example.

One of the Guardians shows us his stregth, vitality, and implacable will--and his calm command of these powerful forces.

Oriental art teaches important lessons!
