The book of songs Bei Feng drum

Hear the roll of our drums! See how we leap about, using our weapons! Those do the fieldwork in the state, or fortify Cao, while we alone March to the south.

From Sun Zizhong, Ping Chen and song. [but] he did not lead us back, and our sorrowful hearts are very sad.

Here will he reside ; here will he sit? Here we lose our horses? And we seek for them? Among the trees of the forest.

For life or for death, however separated, to our wives we pledged our word. Hold your hand and grow old together with you.

Alas for our separation! We have no prospect of life. Alas for our stipulation! We cannot make it good.

Music - Lyric - 冯小姐


Lyric   -   冯小姐


冯小姐 你从没忘记你的微笑
冯小姐 你在每时每刻都很美

冯小姐 我也是个麻烦的孩子
冯小姐 相聚的时间总是太短


所以那些你说的都不是真的 冯小姐
爱上一只美妈 可我的手里没有鲜花
我只能拿把吉他 唱句话

P-O-E-M-S - Look Far and Beyond - GAME’S OVER or GAME ROLLS-OVER?


Look Far and Beyond


In a maze paved with mushmellow
You feel like walking in the air with wings and halo
Sweety and fluffy
But tis all too delicate and feeble
One ounce of tension and heat
Will tear it apart and melt it away
Leaving you falling through the clouds
Without struggle, without wrestle
As if there ain’t no tomorrow
Dizzy and foggy
Little known where lies the door of Devil
Or if ever the plummet will lead you to a rabbit’s hole

beatles in color

You hear someone giggle
And you shiver and pause and chuckle
“Isn’t it all a gamble?”
You can play Elmo or Eskimo
Anyway the end will be foretold in the Taro
When one set is over
The cards get reshuffle
This time you check or call
All-in or fold
Or bulldoze the table
Followed by a show of pistol [Bang! Bang!]
All depends on what type of memo
You wanna have on the gravestone at your funeral

beatles black and white

Time’s ticking
Whether you go mute or bellow
Time’s ticking
Whether you go by the rule or use some gizmo
Time’s ticking
Whether you muffle your head in a pillow or face the trouble


Out of the window and beyond the meadow
There is always the Sun in red, orange and yellow
Laying a layer of warmth gently upon the lively lives
If you ever notice
If you ever be awed and marvel
Maybe that’s what’s eternal
Then you’ll chuckle
“Let it be”
“Let it be”
And you drive a vehicle to Cairo
With the radio humming a song from the Beatle(s)

Daily Reflections - A World in A Flower - Solitude and Relationship

A World in A Flower   -    Solitude and Relationship

A scene that moved Goethe to tears and a paragraph that describes the scene that made my hairs stand:

“But the motive behind such singing [of the wives waiting at seashore for their fisherman husbands to return] is so human and genuine that it makes the mere notes of the melody, over which scholars have racked their brains in vain, come to life. It is the cry of some lonely human being sent out into the wide world till it reaches the ears of another lonely human being who is moved to answer it.”

How lonely each of us is! No matter how close we are to each other, we’re still A Heart-beat Away. Some would argue against such a claim by invoking the belief that man and woman would become united as one in orgasm. In that precise moment, they are not alone. I’m not sure how true it is. Even if it’s true, it is only ephemeral. We will find times we have words coming to our mouths but a second later being swallowed back. We will find times we simply can’t find the right person to confide in. We will find times even when we do share, we are not being understood. Out of our own vanity, fear and selfishness, and out of others’ too. We are deemed lonely no matter how accompanied we are.

The scene depicted above brought me to think of many modern analogies. The dolphins make unusually high-pitched whistles to call out to the same species in the “vicinity”, which can be a whole lot distance away, under water. The Chinese IT giant, Tencent, created an application called Drift Bottle, which allows its users to send messages to strangers. We Mankind as a whole send voice and music records to the outer space to reach out for other lives in the universe. If not lonely, why bother?

Then again it is not a bad thing at all. It’s part of us being human. We need solitude to pause, reflect and look inward; to make an internal adjustment if necessary so as to better live the outward life.

We will for sure feel lonely at some points of our life. The question is how we utilize such moments.

On the other end of the spectrum is relationship. It is not so much as opposed to solitude but rather the two of them are being in each other.

What I’ve been thinking lately is what do I want from a relationship? The first two things that come to my mind is I want someone who accepts me for who I am and someone who can grow with me. Insofar, I have not yet find anything else that qualifies to enter the list.

Does not having common interests matter? Does having too much in common matter? Does look matter? Does height matter? Does weight matter? Does teeth matter? Does intelligence matter? Does ambition matter? …

Parents often look at the contender’s family background. Whether his/her family is well-to-do enough to give their child “happiness ever after”. Whether he/she is caring enough. Whether he/she is filial enough to his/her parents. It could go as far as your dating goes or even beyond, say your marriage.

So many criteria! What a complex optimization problem! We are desperate for expert opinions. We turn to our gut feeling. We pray to God.

After all, it is a leap of faith.

Who says? A contract at most. Just that it’s not in black and white. Huh.



蝶比翼 - 爱情, 两性, 健康,美丽 愿做蝴蝶比翼飞

身无彩蝶双飞翼 心有灵犀一点通
恨不得你是一只蝴蝶,来得快也去得快。 给我一双手,对你依赖。给我一双眼,看你离开。 就象蝴蝶飞不过沧海,没有谁... 因为彼此都无法再有任何责怪。 因为我们同样都飞不过沧海。

蝶恋花 - 苏轼

阅尽天涯离别苦,不道归来,零落花如许。花底相看无一语, 绿窗春与天俱莫。
待把相思灯下诉, 一缕新欢,旧恨千千缕。最是人间留不住,朱颜辞镜花辞树。
