For 4 summers while working at Mission Hill Winery, I got to know this great gal named Maki. This past year she has gone back home to Japan for 8 months to visit her parents and yesterday she sent me these photos that I thought I would share.
Isn't that tree and temple amazing...

Happy Birthday today Jim's cousin Wayne in Victoria..
That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
Robert Louis Stevenson
