Peach blossoms shimmer in resplendent shades of pink and purple majesty in Bunny Bowen's "Kyoto Magic,"
an image she brought home in her head from the gardens of the Imperial Palace of Kyoto

“The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave it neither power nor time.” —Mary Oliver, Of Power and Time
is a quick summary of how I got to this place in my life and in my art,
which are really the same deal.
Thanks to all my teachers, students,
and fellow seekers: peace to you all.
