    He is tired of life"

    Ahhhh.......... such profound wisdom and insight from a true master, shifu and guru.

    This I learnt from another true master, shifu, and guru.

    The way of the Tao says that only the truly humble is fit to be a student.

    Much said a do nothing, in fact I have learned from my teachers, more
    from my colleagues, especially from my students most of all.

    In here we all learn from the one and only Student.
    Arenít we fortunate?
    We must be grateful and start from Level One.

    Every time you understand
    and affirm someone's feelings,
    you build fellowship.
    Aren't you be building photographic fellowship
    of sharing, serving instead of suffering?
