My secret meditation garden


This is the little garden, located deep in the center of the village of Toffia, behind stone walls, hidden away. If you were to be walking by quickly and in an unobservant state, you might miss it. Anyways, I found very early on during the artist residency. In the late mornings and early afternoons, when the sun was shining on the lower garden bench, I would come here to meditate. Often, I was joined by a very affectionate and friendly brown and black patched cat, who would cuddle up next to me as I meditated and share the bench. Another item of particular note of this garden was its abundance of herbs and clovers, along with an orange tree. After the kitchen patio, this was my second favorite hang out during my stay in this quaint medieval village in Italy.
