That process was thrilling and exciting. So was the drama of yesterday.
My daughter gave birth to her second child yesterday morning….in the foyer of the hospital right by the lift before we could go to the delivery floor. “Call Code Blue!” “Call Code Pink!” “Baby’s head is coming out.” “Can someone get the body out too?” “Stay clear please” “Stay clear” “Blanket please” “Blanket”….. …….. …….

“Your mother is hilarious”, my daughter’s colleague told her over the phone about me.

For the past two weeks, I had to entertain, educate and train a person twenty-seven years of my junior on a tour of HK, Taiwan and Shenzhen.

What you see, slowly and deeply, is the art of achieving a peace of mind by finding the past from the present, and by appreciating the beauties and rhythms of nature as they present themselves. You should keep in mind that you are a part of nature, not outside it, nor trying to use it, and never to control or change it.
Just go through the photos with a minimum regard for the comments.
