Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

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.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Great focus on the shishiodoshi and the flowing of water from drain to mouth! And I also love the surface of the water below, such colours....One cannot hear the sound, but one can SEE it in the ripples...

@Japanalia: Thank you very much Gabriela! Only the distinctive thump of the shishiodoshi disturbs the seren calm of this beautiful garden...... ;-)
