While sitting on the floor of a room in Japan and looking out on a small garden with flowers blooming and dragon flies hovering in space, I sensed that this small world, almost underfoot, shall I say, had a validity all its own, but must be realized and appreciated from its own level in space.

I suddenly felt I had too long been exclusively above my boots.

Mark George Tobey, 1890 – 1976, American painted, strongly influenced by Asian calligraphy.
