Every sketching day is a good day.

Thank you for reading another zen Monday. Every Monday is zen Monday. Always a weekly dose of Japanese ink painting coupled with one photograph from my archives. Sometimes a poem.

This week we carry on with the Crete tour, after an unexpected hiatus. Thank you for your understanding and for your continuing engagement. Today I am sharing a view of the olive mill village in the morning.

The last weeks and this particular postcard are a reminder of what gives meaning to every day around here. There is a zen
expression “Every day a good day”, or in Japanese 「日日是好日」. To me personally, every sketching day is a good day.

What about you? This week, this holiday season think about what word makes your every day a good day. What would you write instead of “sketching”?

See you again next week!
