Visual Meditation: Oasis in the Desert

I am heading off to the desert for a time of Lenten retreat and leave you with some rainy day images from the Kubota Japanese Garden here in Seattle.  The desert mothers and fathers will be my companions for this journey.  My heart is ready to move into silence to listen for a deeper voice.  I’ll let you know some of what I discover upon my return.  (Click here for a visual meditation on tulips.)
