IMG_6625I woke up this morning and it was still -3 C.  I opened my eyes and the sun was shining through the window.  I got out of bed and found Sheba laying in a pool of sunlight, so content with herself.

IMG_6611The dining room table was a feast of green, full of bedding plants coming in for the night.  It was a great way to greet the day – sunlight, greens and a happy dog.


IMG_6620The light danced off the walls, highlighting and casting shadows, reminding me of life – light and shadows, good and bad, the yin and the yang.  And I moved and flowed through my morning qigong routine.






About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

  1. I love your greens! I can never grow anything!

  2. Light is necessary for life. Your dog felt the power through her skin. But just as we need light, the shadow is the perfect contrast. One would be unbearable without the other.

    Hi – stopping by from the Facebook UBC group – again! We seem to keep posting around the same time! We have that same “sun dance” ritual around here on bright, sunny mornings. Like your dog lying in the patch of sunshine, our dog and six cats all do the same! They all seem to have their favorite spots to catch the rays, whether it’ s the floor, a piece of furniture, or a window.

    Your flats of plants remind me of my wife. All winter she has a little “green house” set up in the basement–full of the critters. Basil, tomatoes, peppers, flowers. So life-giving. John
