Diving deeper into the timelessness of Nara. Standing before the array of deities on the altar of Akishino-dera. The Yakushi Buddha at center sits, as he has for 1300 years. I think of all that has happened since—all the wars, disasters, migrations, civilizations come and gone. And through it all he sits, right hand raised, palm forward, saying,  It ain’t nothing but a thing. All is okay.

On the turntable:  J. S. Bach, "Bach 2000"
