Portland Gardens

Today we drove over to Portland and visited the Japanese and Chinese gardens. The Japanese garden had more plants where as the Chinese garden had more structures. They were both brilliant examples of balance and harmony in life. If you get a chance to visit Portland, Oregon I HIGHLY recommend visiting these gardens and staying awhile to meditate and take everything all in.

Anyway, onto a good quote:

If happiness hasn't been recognized when alone, a group of people will be a cause of distraction.

-Adept Godrakpa, "Hermit of Go Cliffs"
