Taking picture.

I am not exactly a professional photographer. In fact, only because the camera technology went digital that I started taking more photos. Anyway, with the effortable digital SLR, I do enjoy taking a few still photos of flowers and landscape every once in a while. Here is one taken in Disney Land in December 08.

Helping my daughter to do the Christmas Card was one of the most enjoyable moment for the holiday season. It's a bit late but why not: I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!

So I can see a lot of things happening and everybody is impacted by this biggest financial crisis of all time. Things are turning ugly and soon even more ugly. So we will all face the biggest challenge in life soon. I suppose there is no easy out this time because it's not some kind of accident that caused the financial crisis but it is the overheating of the very system we have created in the world to drive the world to become more "productivy". It's a problem within our way of do things in the economic part of our global society. I guess there is no easy way out.
