Simple is Good

I like simplicity, despite its impossibility in life
Although reality is never simple
Although life will not steer away from material
We cannot forget to cherish the simple thingsFor examples… a person, an event, an item, a niche of memory, thought of someone, a smile, or even a small gesture…
There are all kinds, countless…
Without them, we are but meaningless empty shells
They’re the fundamental to us
But they require our attentions, awaresness, consciousness
To discover, to not overlook them
In the moments that continue to fly by…

Original post in Chinese:
兩點半了, 剛看完了愛情魔髮師. 前幾天在KTSF看了一集就全download下來看
劇裡大部分人物都很可愛 (尤其是女主角hehe, 名字好像是曾之喬)
很輕鬆的連續劇, 劇情沒有很複雜, 還有是大團圓結局
比較最近一些其他的連續劇和電影超複雜的故事, 或悲哀的或不好不壞的結局
讓我從現實逃離一下, 適當的調劑
看完了, 啟發了一些感想想寫下

我喜歡簡單, 就算生活裡是不可能的
我們不能望記, 要好好珍惜簡單的東西
譬如說… 一個人, 一間事, 一樣物品, 一點記憶, 一絲思念, 一個微笑, 身邊人一個小動作…
種種種種的…算不清, 數不盡
沒有了, 我們的肉體只是沒意義的空殼
才可以發現, 才可以不忽略

People coming and going

Going back about 2.5 years, I arrived in Bay Area to do my master degree at Stanford. It was then that I landed this small part-time at a local art gallery in Palo Alto. 2.5 years…how quickly time has flown by now that I look back, and everything’s different and changing.

This weekend I found out the girl who’s been working there full-time (started slightly before me) will be leaving the area to return to the mid-west. An indeed nice and cheerful gal I’d say. Although I would not say we’re friends-friends, we’ve always exchanged small fun chit-chats at the gallery. It’s been a good time. Finding out suddenly that she’s going is a bit of a shock and a bit sad.

Prior to this, I did think about how long she will stay or if she’ll move on to another better location/job someday. The art gallery is a nice place, but reality is reality, it cannot be a permanent place for her – a young Stanford alumni also. Hence I’m happy for her departure, venturing into unknown. Brave soul.

Another good note – I will have another tourist guide in Chicago :P

Nature Appreciation

I always feel more free and calm when I’m walking/hiking in nature or just sitting somewhere that lets me obsere it. For that, I am thankful for the window office I’m assigned to. Whenever it gets dull, boring, frustrating, or even angry, it is always helpful and encouraging to just take a look out the window for a few seconds. At least that’s how I feel. Take a look :)

And obviously, I am a big nature guy.

New York Subway Superman and…

See news about New York Subway Superman

I actually saw this on the TV news. It’s one of the first few reported, pretty big news obviously. In a nutshell, Wesley Autrey jumped on top of a man who’s fallen onto the subway track and covered the man enough to save both of them from a oncoming train. For that, he received the highest NY citizen honor – a copper medal! Well, I should not be cynical. This man did something extraordinary. Seriously, I don’t know if I’ll be doing that or for many people even if I was present in the scenario. He deserves our respect. To end the news on a happy note (I feel happy for him too), Wesley is receiving rewards from random people for performing this deed, including scholarships for his daughters and $10,000 from Donald Trump. Though I thought, “Oh, it’s Donald Trump. Wouldn’t he be giving a little more?”

Oh well. We should be happy there’s some good news on the news nowadays.
