Abstract sumi e painting Original, Zen style, with ink wash and both wet and dry brushstroke work by Marilyn Wells was inspired by Grace Cathedral Park music and a poem by Mary Oliver.

 “Today”
Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word.
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.
 
The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.
 
But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.
 
Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.
 
Oliver, Mary. “Today.” A Thousand Mornings. 1853S-2

"Play Delicate
Desire Quiet"
Music by Grace Cathedral Park 1853S-2

This is a 2nd sumi e expression of the music noted above, a beautiful piece worth listening to again...
