I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Another great point of view Eric. Look how narrow that passageway/canal is! The reflections are great and the colours so alive!
