purpose without purpose

If you stumble across this site, maybe you were meant to. Be patient.

The Zen Space is an English-language showcase for writings the roots and essence of which is zen. The starting-point is haiku, but the journey will probably go through other places. There is no need to define zen or haiku or discuss them or argue about them – many words have been wasted in that way. There is a short essay on haiku on the essence page, but that will be enough.

The contents of the pages may flow, rather than change regularly like issues of a magazine; they may renew, sometimes circling the same place, sometimes exploring somewhere new, sometimes delighting to find a familiar sight. Or they may coalesce into something more formal.

Whether they will make the jump from the internet to print remains to be seen. Be open to the possibility!


Please ignore any adverts or “Sponsored Content” that appears anywhere in the pages of the zen space – they’re spam generated by the WordPress platform, and their appearance should not be taken to be an endorsement by the zen space or by its editor.
