Feng Shui by Heather Orton

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The Lan Su Chinese Garden is a respite from the clamor of city life. As you enter the garden gates a hush seems to descend that quiets all other noise but the sound of bird song, rippling water, and the occassional wind rustling through the trees. I go here sometimes to wander, to think, to absorb the beauty of nature in harmony with conscientious design.
