New Zendo look!

Thanks to the efforts of John and Steven, new shoji screens have been installed in the Ordinary Mind Zendo. John made the frames to fit each window, and Steven finished the frames with tung oil and attached the shoji paper, which has a subtle design of bamboo. These new screens reduce the distractions from passing traffic and pedestrians, while still allowing light in. The top part of the windows has been left open to allow more light and sky and trees in. This bright home for Ordinary Mind is cheerful and spacious. I hope it will serve your practice well! There are more pictures in the album at http://www.flickr.com/photos/syverson/sets/973377/.
