A couple of fun images of three traveling boys from the 1960s, the first in Toldeo (Ohio if you do not know) and the second in western Mass. For me both of these images feel like boys just enjoying life before they have be adults.
“I was not very studious: what I know of Zen today helps me measure exactly how much I don’t know and how sad this lack is. I console myself by remembering that in old Chinese Zen it was traditional to choose the gardener, who knew nothing, to succeed the master, rather than one knew too much.
Still I have a chance.”

A virtual rug (above) made using the shado image below to make a pattern.
A shadoWeaver virtual rug based on light misconverswayshuns with my darkside…
Based on using the below photograph of my shado to make the pattern.
Two more variations using the same shado image to make the pattern. Its the same old thing here and there— Israel and “Palastine” who will go to war to maintain the status quo rathr than change and create peace. However no one listened to Lawrence, he made the deal with the Arabs in return for their help to defeat the German Axis in WWI England and France agreed the Arabs would have the peninsula. Between the agreement and the end of the war, as well as because of the machinery invented and made in mass production for use in WWI, oil became important and the Allied forces reneged on the deal, leaving Lawrence up a creek without a paddle as a person whose word was not good to the Arabs.
David Lean in his movie should be criticized for this misrepresentation of Lawrence in his film, but that film was about making England look like the good guy not just at the expense of the integrity of Lawrence buit as we have seen now, at the expense of the place of oil in the world and Lean was rewarded for his misrepresentation. (Note: this is my opinion, probably not the historical truth as found in books, but I suggest to read The Seven Pillars of Wisdom.)
The same image used in the previous posts was used to create this ShadoWeaver virtual rug.Slight differences make for interesting changes.
