Some may see a snow fall as ruining the opportunity to sit quietly on a peaceful patio. But in the context of the Christian and Buddhist spiritual symbols through which this scene was literally captured, the rustic table and simple chair among the snow invites one to meditation. A truly Zen / contemplative moment.


Location: North Saanich, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

    There’s something a bit magical about the subject matter here. Well done.

  • Thank you, Matt. Interesting that you say “magical”… that is the same reaction I got from the nun/Reiki Master that my wife & I have a relationship with. Peace – Edward

  • Thank you so much, Angelo, for the feature. That scene just seemed so evocative of the weather (and culture) of Winter / Christmas on the West Coast of Canada. Peace
