Stuff I Like: Vortex Fountains

Now this is just...Fine as frog hair!

Vortex Fountain

From freshhome:

Water features have got to be the top must-have features in gardens. One of the best designers who creates wonderful water sculptures is William Pye (UK). He takes his inspiration from nature and the way he manipulates water is truly outstanding such as his vortex fountains. Although he makes smaller versions, the largest one has got to be his masterpiece. The fountain is called Charybdis and is located in Seaham Hall in Sunderland, UK.


Daily Zen

Humans born into this floating world

Quickly become like the roadside dust:
At dawn small children,
By sunset already grown white-haired,
Without inner understanding,
They struggle without cease.
I ask the children of the universe:
For what reason do you pass this way?

- Ryokan (1758-1831)
