Burning scarlet red
before a sky of blue.
The phoenix tree inspires,
turning ashes into gold.

Dream what I am
Dream not what I will become
The fish does not dare follow a bird’s shadow
In adoration of Mother Earth, I visited a bonsai park in southern China and attempted to capture her divine grace via photography and color pencil.

After experiencing a wonderful journey through India, the time has come to post my final days, starting with Sarnath, the city where Buddha first taught the dharma, and ending in Kolkata, the official capital of West Bengal.
I hope you enjoyed my photos!

From dawn to dusk and dusk to dawn, the Ganga reflects, absorbs, merges and transforms. Surging from the locks of Siva’s hair as he sits atop the mighty Himalayas, it flows 1,600 miles southeast before spilling into the Bay of Bengal, touching the bodies and souls of millions along the way.
Nothing is more gratifying than collaborating with Mother Nature.
Simply harvest a handful of rocks, twigs, shells or flowers and while away the afternoon.

Contrary to what most tourists do, I recommend staying in Agra, India for at least one night before seeing the Taj Mahal. That way you can witness the extravagant weddings-on-wheels that traverse the city at night. Music, dancing and wild colors paint the bustling streets as couples descend from all over India to proclaim their undying love.
