Lucky Pearls

















As Moon Festival approached, Mr. Wan's mistress wondered if she would see her lover, even if just for a few hours. It was doubtful though, given all his family obligations. Just in case he should surprise her, she wore her red envelope slippers and her lucky pearls.




~sold to anonymous buyer. Proceeds went to Home Sweet Home in Shanghai, a home for the homeless.

  8. Waiting under the moonlight ... mesmerizing indeed. ^^

    There is a saying in my language, roughly translated as "Akin to waiting for the moon to fall upon one's lap" ... meaning, one will continue to wait, even though it is clearly impossible ... Best describes Mr. Wan's mistress de situation. :)

  10. I love it, a fény árnyék, a nagyszerű színek! Kedves tőled, az ajánlatot, bár azok, akik hozni a világ a szegénység jobban kell a pénz, akkor tenne valamit a nyomor itt készült külön egy! Nélkül a mérhetetlen szegénység, bármilyen gazdagság létezik, úgy véli, hogy táplálja őt!

    I've got so complicated feelings on this ... I wish the homeless will also have their "lucky pearls".
