Legend has it that the Koi was the only fish able to swim up the Yellow River falls. According to Japanese legend if a koi succeeded in swimming up the falls to the point called “Dragon Gate” on the Yellow River it would be transformed into a dragon.
This was inspired by my wife Roong. She has taken up photography, and one of the nicest things to take photos of are the lotus flowers. Sadly, they are becoming scarce. People dredge them out of the ponds to make room for one thing or the other. I am afraid that someday they will be only found in artwork. That’s what made me think of the cave painting look.
