    oh and I love your new Hippie photo :-))))))))
    The story detailing the advancement of the koi fish has been around for generations and generations of Japanese culture. The koi in the story was said to have climbed a waterfall, regardless of the heavy current trying to keep it down in the pool below. The koi battled with great perseverance to reach the top of the falls, because it wanted so badly to achieve what it had gone there to do.

    The koi fish was very brave and did in fact make it to the top. The Chinese version of the story takes it a little further. In their version of the folklore tale, the koi swam the whole of the Yellow River, despite the rapid current and made it through the Dragon Gate. Upon completing this dangerous endeavor, the koi was turned into a magnificent dragon. It was allowed to evolve into a more advanced, more vibrant creature due to his extreme perseverance and determination.
