I did not know what Quan Yin was. Then someone (or some book) told me that it is Kannon in Japanese. Now I know! 

I grew up visiting temples and shrines in Japan and bowing to Kannon-sama regularly. Now I am living in New Zealand, I kind of miss this routine. I started to look for a statue of Kannon, so I feel settled and looked after at home. I have been told Kannon-sama is helping me with my healing work. So I feel kind of connected to her. 


Anyway, today she appeared. I went into a shop and looked around. Somehow my eyes went to the top of a big furniture. There she was. My Kannon-sama. I decided to take her home.
