This lotus bloom is dedicated to my grandson,
who was born yesterday
on the other side of the world in GuangZhou, China.

May he know beauty inside and beauty outside,
strength of body and strength of spirit,
purity of thoughts and purity of deeds,
wisdom of knowledge and compassion of the heart.

The lotus is an ancient symbol in both Asian and African cultures.
