Hi all,

We had a great day, toured from 9:30 to 2:30 . This was the short day. ~ ?

We saw the Ginkakuji Temple (Silver temple and garden on the hill side), it wasn't silver but it was beautiful. The founder died before he got that far, and it's being restored (Enclosed in scaffolding). The garden, on the flat and on the hill side is incredible. The group, in its travels, has seen a lot, but this is something else.

We did the Philosophers walk, 1.4 miles on the first estimate and 2.6 or 3 miles the second, and probable longer. This is after a long time eat and shop up and down the hill.

We went to the Daitokuji Temple, or Otoko Ninji temple (???), the guided personal favorite, along the way.

The Nanzenji Temple, or the Big Gate, was at the end of the trail. It was an awesome experience; the temple gardens were small but very beautiful. The gate was huge, $5.00 to walk up two or three stories, without your shoes. I got my money back. Who would have thought holy steps all the way up?

We planned to go to the theatre tonight, Japan's culture performances, but we're out of gas. We'll save it for Thursday, our free day, and maybe we'll go to the Nijo Castle too ~ or go to the grand flee market.

We're off to Nara tomorrow, established about 700 AD, and not bombed in world war two. It's a very special place and I'm looking forward to walking back in time to the first century (just think, 2,000 years ago and they say it's as beautiful now as it was then!)

Well, anyway I wish you all could all be here with us. I've been to "Japan" before and I didn't much care for it, but this isn't it. I don't know how to explain it, is it me or them. It's beautiful, the temples, the gardens and the people.

I Love you all and the people of Japan too.

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
