"Back Home..."

...Exhausted...Elated...and on Email overload...LOL :)
Whew!
(A lot happens when one is unplugged!)
So
a little something soothing and serene for today...
...another "China Bloom"
...from my ATC series...#2 of 6.

"You must be a Lotus,
unfolding its petals when the sun rises in the sky,
unaffected by the slush where it is born
or
even the water which
sustains it!"
~Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Indian Spiritual leader
