This Week’s Theme: Zen
The Zen-like people over at northern California’s ZenKoiPond.com created this beautiful and serene zen koi pond which includes a zen-like great blue heron metal sculpture. It calms me just to look at this photo. If I experienced this in person, I’d probably want to stay forever.
About koi and their colors from KoiStory.com:
Because koi fish can develop such an array of colors, it comes as no surprise that each hue has developed a connotation. Gold koi fish represent wealth and prosperity. Metallic koi symbolize success in business. A blue koi is thought to bring serenity. Asagi koi of blue, red, and grey colorings symbolize positivity. Black koi are thought to hold a patriarchal symbolism, with red belonging to the mother, blue to the son, and pink to the daughter.

“When you make a decision and a commitment to do something good for yourself, it is like dropping a pebble in a pond. It has a rippling effect. The firmer the decision, the stronger the frequency and wider the range of things that will be reached.” ~ Iyanla Vanzant
