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 the pavilion

In a design process that began later 2015, Phil Holtegaard fabricated my "moon viewing" pavilion in the Japanese style of 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! The next week I stained it; the next week commenced landscaping.
