Looking Back at 2003

Impermanence is everywhere, even in the zendo.  Today, I came across these old photographs, dated March 2003, of the Atlanta Zen Center just after we took possession of our current premises, before we had built out the meditation hall into its current and, believe me, quite different configuration. 

Here we are that same March day building the benches upon which the Zen practioners currently sit.

The meditation hall was bisected by a wall, cutting the effective space in half.  Here's a picture of the old alter and doan (attendant) station. 

To say the old space now looks quite a bit different would be, to say the very least, an understatement.  Changes occur and are still occurring, and I have a strong sense that very big changes are imminent.
