"That’s why people lose intelligence: for the simple reason that they are so tired. If the mind can have little rest, if you can leave the mind alone for a few hours every day, if once in a while you can give the mind a holiday, it will be rejuvenated; it will come out more intelligent, more efficient, more skillful." --Osho, Waking Times http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/10/26/meditation-rest-rest-makes-mind-efficient/

I think a Geisha is one of the most beautiful things in the world. I wish I could go to Japan for the cherry blossoms and Geisha.too bad I hate Japanese food.

Kyudo literally means “The Way of the Bow” and is the Japanese martial art of archery. Kyudo is one of the oldest arts in Japan.

I think the style of this kimono is very striking as there is quite a contrast between the pale washed out pastelly purples and lilacs and the dark black background. I like the way tone is portrayed in the flower pattern because there is a use of darker colour to create a sense of tone and makes the design look 3D.

Japanese Fashion - Kimono- NOTE THE SHAPE especially the layering at the v-neck with thin silks and the petal furling of the robe and skirt. Also, sleeves add an interesting scarf/shawl/wrap dimension and could move interestingly.
