A fresh experience of Zen through new eyes; this book explores Zen with the explorer. It travels, not with a leader, but with the traveler discovering Zen as it goes. The book covers the ongoing journey of one follower of the way of Zen towards the light of Zen; it is written as it came, through meditation, in poetry and prose. It was not created by the author, at least not in any conventional sense, rather everything in this book happened to the author and because of this you will find a lack of order, of logical progression in the pages for which I apologize, but it is as it came. As such it is a personal journey but ultimately it is the journey of all who meditate. It is the journey of all who meditate seen, not through the eyes of a learned scholar, but through the eyes of a humble soul, an ordinary person. This is what happens, or part of it, to you and me in meditation, in Zen, following the way. To this end I hope that you will find parallels with your own journey and from this take strength. So be encouraged; remember it is not complicated, it is simple - enjoy!

About the Author
The author is a mild mannered Englishman, sometime scientist, taxi driver, gardener and artist who now, with his wonderful wife, runs a dog and cat hotel hidden very cleverly in the mountains of Western Canada. Graham has followed the path of Zen for about eighteen years although I'm not sure he knows this. His one wish, through these volumes, so he tells me, is to express Zen, all things being equal.
