Almost Done


This is part of the text that goes with this station, #21 Matsushima...

"Just as the River Sekko in China is made full at each swell of the tide, so is this bay filled with the brimming water of the ocean and the innumerable islands are scattered over it from one end to the other. Tall islands point to the sky and level ones prostrate themselves before the surges of water. Islands are piled above islands, and islands are joined to islands, so that they look exactly like parents caressing their children or walking with them arm in arm. "

And I just passed the 300th post...wow.

Thanks for the sideshot of your cabs, Bobbi. The way that you have grouped them together is so wonderfully textural. They do look like "islands joined to islands" and perfectly express the poetry. Beautiful!
