This shot has plenty more to say that the simplicity of the picture suggests. In fact, the black granite base the japanese broom leans against, was once used for one of Auguste Rodin’s works. Things are nice and pretty, here; every plant seems to blossom, and the culture digs on formality.
That said, Ive found inspiration from the dogmatic and modivation from the pedantic daily criticism.
Here, Ive learned that zen, like Rodin, are just distractions from the rigidity and mundane and are exchanged for more pleasant things that so-called higher education can offer.
The work is stiff, and the so is my neck, apparently.
But this picture, it has loads to say about what things are really like at a fundamental level, here at Tsukuba.
