Snow in turquoise pond, Hokkaido, Japan   ~     "My dream is the dream of a pond ~ Not just to mirror the sky ~ But to let the willows and ferns ~ Suck me dry. ~ I'll climb from the roots to the veins, And when leaves wither and fade ~ I will refuse to mourn ~ Because I was dying to live."        Shu Ting       ~   @Elsa Davern
