In order to
comprehend the beauty of
a Japanese garden,
it is necessary to understand - or at least
to learn to understand -
the beauty of stone.

June 28: building a moon viewing pavilion
高台寺観月台/ Kangetsudai

In a design process that began later 2015, Phil Holtegaard fabricated my moon-viewing pavilion tsukimidai/ 月見 台 in the Japanese style similar to the gate. With neighbors and friends Richard, Mary, Mark, Dave and Steve, with photography by Craig, the pavilion went up in about 4 hours total. Hooray!
