This design was made originally for a mosaic that I created a while back and is an age-old design that I have always liked. It symbolises the astrological sign of Pisces and also reminds me a little of the Yin/Yang symbol and that fish are powerful good luck energy in Feng Shui. I think they look luminous and mysterious.
I have been reading a post by Bohemian Mom who is making many healthy changes in her life, one of which is to try and eliminate coffee, which she LOVES to drink. I really admire her for this but I was not so sure that coffee was actually a bad guy, if drunk in moderation. So I hunted down a couple of recent Australian articles (both respected sources) about the benefits of coffee and it seems that I was right, coffee is not all bad.
I managed to cut down my coffee intake quite a few years ago, as I found that it can make me jittery and will keep me awake at night if I have more than one cup. Now I have just one LOVELY cup each morning. Because it is my only cup, I make it quite a ritual and buy the best quality I can (more anti oxidants in the good stuff - this is true for chocolate too - have I told you about the benefits of eating chocolate? :):).
I find a sunny or cosy spot to drink it, and of course better still, share a cup with someone. I know all you coffee drinkers out there are nodding your heads in agreement. I know I can't pass up this kind of pleasure, could you?
