My studio is surrounded by small fields in which my 5 pet Exmoor Horn sheep graze. I find watching them, feeding them and interacting with them meditative and relaxing. The lambs are so funny to watch.

Here are some of their 'Zen' wisdoms.

'Train your mind - it is the source of everything'

'Remember that is is easy to point out the mistakes
of others, but difficult to admit one's own.'

'Accept the challenge of higher development

'The road to the experience of ultimate reality
is the practice of meditation'

'It is necessary to gain insight
that life is impermanent'

And I thought this appropriate for our M.A. course;

'There will come a time when you believe everything is finished.
That will be the beginning'


'Watching a spider at work, I vow with all beings to cherish the web of the Universe:
touch one point and everything moves.'
