"This one was taken in the small town of Arita during my recent adventures across Saga prefecture. The tiny hamlet is one of the first places in Japan where porcelain was produced following the discovery of kaolin, the mineral essential to making porcelain, in the nearby mountains. Over time, the small hamlet's wares grew to be prized all across the globe.
In an homage to its famous kilns, nearly everything in Arita somehow relates to porcelain. " 📷＠donnyjkimball

You mean everything to me. As hard as it is for me to accept your passing, I know you’re in the best hands you could ever be in. As your God raises you higher, I feel you closer to me. Some people in the world have no one, I’m glad I at least had 1 for as long as I did. I am truly blessed and today I celebrate you. Thank you for loving me & teaching me how to love others, you are truly one in a million ✨
