I’ve been a huge fan of Frederick Franck ever since I discovered one of his books, The Zen of Seeing: Seeing Drawing as Meditation. This book has moved with me many times; the spine and cover are quite faded in spots.
The contents will never fade; they’re as relevant today as they were when they were written. I’m not the only fan, just the other day a friend shared Franck’s ten commandments from his long out-of-print book, The Awakened Eye. As with all interesting quotes, I documented them in my journal!
Like Frederick Franck, I believe everything and anything is worthy of being truly seen, even for a few short minutes.
If you’re interested in a text version of these ten commandments or learning more about Frederick Franck and The Awakened Eye please check out this wonderful website. There’s a lot to explore!
