Good Luck Scrolls

A lovely picture of an artist taking his work direct to his customers on a busy street. I can feel the buzz of the shoppers, tourists and commuters, and at the same sense the inner peace of the artist as he concentrates. Thanks to Brenda for the picture.

Good Luck Scrolls

Lee Pak Chong’s happiness flows over the scrolls by painting flowers and nature.
The calligraphy adds inspiration and brings good luck in the spirit of Feng Shui, hanging in people’s home or at the office.
For hours, he dedicates and focuses his artistic flare on producing these parchments on demand.

Afterwards, he practices Tai Chi to clear his mind and relax the stiffness in his body.
He takes the MTR home to Tai Po; drinks tea on the balcony and waits for Mai Ling to arrive in their Rolls Royce.
On life’s scroll, Lee Pak appreciates they are very lucky.

  10. Lee Pak Chong certainly is very lucky; doing what he loves, giving luck to others, and making enough money to own a Rolls-Royce, especially in Hong Kong where a parking space costs a million dollars. I very much enjoyed your well written story, James!

    You’re welcome for the photo. I love what you wrote about it at the top of the page. I took the photo several years ago at the entrance to the Star Ferry on the Kowloon side.
