Lijiang Yunnan. 黑龍潭 black dragon pool. Inside the park is a tea house.  Too bad it was raining other wise we would have dropped by for some tea.

Yunnan trails. Back of a scooter cart, we catch a ride to 石寶山 shibao mountain. Blue skies and white marshmallow clouds.

Shaxi, yunnan. One of the ancient town along the yunnan - Tibet tea road. Still and attractive place to rest along the road.

Yunnan road. Just a small light bag and companion of a good friend. No schedule. No particular goals. Just an open road and and open mind. Slowly drifting along in Yunnan like it’s many rivers …

Summer 2014 fan. Every season I have a pet project. The project may be small in scale but the goal is not small - to give myself an opportunity to find a new source or method for a fuller happier life. 2014 summer project is fans. And after months of researching and trial and error, this hand made fan decorated with various seals (courtesy of Z) is the one that has the best aesthetics as well as meaning. The seals meanings are (from left to right): 平平安安, 天涯有梦, 无眼界, 物外真游, 自由王国, 一日一生, 一期一会, 抱朴堂印, 智勇. Each one a blessing for happiness. Every stroke of air has this positive energy !
