Koi Pond

My personal visions of peace always turn to moments in nature. They reaffirm my faith in life and beauty continuing in the face of warfare and conflict. This is especially true of the smallest of moments, like the nose of a Koi breaking the surface of his pond as he nibbles blossoms floating there among the bubbles.

This piece was inspired by (and is my contribution to) the "Countdown to Peace" Project in Ayden, North Carolina. Please visit their web site at:
