Alberta Legislature Art Show & Tell, 2017.

1981, Ken Ku Kuo once told me that in China, people know life as a river. Going down a river you never know what lies around the next bend. Sometimes the water is like rapids, very bad time and hard at living. Sometimes it's calm, very happy to be alive, but always
changing. Sometimes good times, sometimes bad times,
but always changing. Co-worker, friend
