Good Luck

Fish Story

Feng Shui claims that having fish in your back yard pond is a good thing. My twenty-five cent feeder gold fish have grown to be 10 inch monsters with voracious appetites.

One in particular must have jumped tanks in the store. Since buying them a number of years ago this one has grown to be much bigger than the rest. I don’t know much about fish but my friends tell me he or she is a Koi and should be considered very good luck.


It seems that this morning others wanted some of this good luck. This morning this guest came to visit my back yard obviously thinking his luck was about to improve by having a free lunch.

My luck was having him stay long enough to snap this picture.

Of Carp

According to the Spiritual Feng Shui, “fish, especially the carp represents wealth and prosperity because the actual word in Chinese for fish also translates to “abundance”. As with most Chinese symbols, the carp has a legend attached to it. According to legend, the carp is noted for its strength and bravery because it swims against the current. According to some the carp turns into the revered Celestial Dragon when it makes a final leap over the rapids.

OK. You got me.
Not even I can understand that real estae analogy. Unless ….
We are the fish and the HAM is the bird?
Well played Larry. Well played.

nope no real estate here – simply a bird in my back yard.

again no real estate wisdoms – just a story about some cheap fish and a bird looking for a free lunch.

If you guys read more than that into it I need you writing some posts. 🙂

OK. Here’s a timely real estate observation.

Richmond is sinking so fast into the mud, long buried For Sale signs are reapearing like magic every where south of the Fraser.

For students of Feng Shui, it now conveniently seems that although flat lots are preferred, more preferred is a hill side with a southern aspect. Like.. in
West Vancouver!
