June, I Said Hello to the Sun

When the first wave of summer heat came in June, I set out alone
to greet the Sun
I wanted to see how faraway the horizon stretched
I wanted to know how tall maples and pines grew
I relished exuberant color of green
I rode on swift gusts of wind
The dandelion on the sidewalk – whom I secretly loved
nodded to me without knowing my ambition
Roaming clouds – whom I adored unreservedly,
joined my journey without knowing my destination
Oh June, I said hello to the Sun
with long lost passion
telling her that I was ready to write
another song of
myself

Is Money Important?

Just because that money ALONE is not enough does NOT mean money is not important. As matter of fact, since humans invented money for the more complicated trading (than barter), making money has been the most important means for us to survive. So if we agree that survival is the most important thing for our life, money naturally becomes the most important thing in our life.

So people who say money is confused about the difference between sufficient condition and necessary condition.

(Sorry that I currently do not have any more mature thoughts to write. lol)

Light

God said: let there be light.
but the Sun hesitated
it shone somewhere all the way through
created scenery with depth; somewhere
it only went half way, then stopped, illuminated
partial space, thus the bird-like
creatures – the kind that are sensitive to light,
were forever confused
about weather to fly up high
or to remain on a flat, yet
not so solid
ground

Life

Life, by design
is confined within
limited dimensions, yet
imagination strives to go beyond
disregards an eternal torment of
irresolution
between the comfort of confinement
and freedom of
uncertainty

Speakers vs. Listeners – A little thought From Angelou’s Quote

Maya  Angelou

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ” – Maya Angelou

This is so very true. Maya Angelou was truly a remarkable poet. However I think we better not take this quote in an absolute sense, because if we were all concerned too much about how others react to what we said, we would hardly get chance to speak what we truly feel or think. So, speakers need to be considerate, listeners also need not to take everything personal. Everything takes efforts from both sides.
