Zen is a Buddhist principle which emphasizes focus that incorporates a total togetherness of body and mind. It is an Asian concept, obviously with the Buddhist origins.

I find my Zen in my library. It is technically our sun porch, with a very large comfy chair and all of my books. I go there to unplug, unwind, relax, and explore the world through literature.

The design of the room is Asian inspired, with one of the center pieces a Japanese wedding rice dish and husband/wife chopsticks given to us on our wedding from my father-in-law’s work friend. (He’s a director in Panasonic so many of his coworkers are Japanese). Along with the rice dish, we have a few happy Buddha statues, Asian lion book ends, and a Gandhi quote (I know, two types of Asians but hey, zen is zen!)

My husband’s zen is fabrication: working on our cars, our motorcycles, his rc cars, his bicycle…my zen is reading.

Everyone has a zen, a happy place where they feel mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically at peace.
