The Bible said, men shall not live by bread alone… for the Chinese we shall not live by rice alone! I know some people eat rice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This pot of rice was taken during lunch time.
While it is still Easter Sunday in the USA, I am spending April 1 at HK and would like to send out this newsletter ASAP.
This is my neighborhood, I walked by it many times and yes, I did walk in and through it. The people are friendly and the dogs don’t bite they just barked. This is Hong Kong, while I live in concrete high rises and having neighbors living close to nature.
It is easy for me to get lost in the details; I love to take photos that can attract others to imagine. From this one I used, what do you think is on the other side of these barbed wires? There seems to be a patch of blue in a cloudy sky; I know for a fact that the sun is always beyond the cloud!
I was attracted by these wooden pillars by the pier, they look like strong legs moving quietly and steadily forward. I am not going to preach about life from this photo, just enjoy its message whatever it is saying to you. I just recall the movie: “Pay it Forward”
As Time Goes By (A kiss is just a kiss) Lyrics by Louis Armstrong
You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply as time goes by
And when two lovers woo, they still say, “I love you”
On that you can rely, no matter what the future brings as time goes by
Moonlight and love songs never out of date
Hearts full of passion jealousy and hate
Woman needs man and man must have his mate
That no one can deny it’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory, a case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers as time goes by
Home is a place where one should be able to feel belong and safe. It doesn’t matter how large or small, clean or dirty, neat or chaotic, as long as one can relax, comfortable, and totally be oneself without any pretense. As a missionary, I have often been asked where do I consider home? Hong Kong? United States or Canada? My recent answer to this question was– where my parents still lives– in Chicago because that’s where my family tie is! Come to think of it, I have more than one home because I have many ties to friends, sending agency, churches, and supporters. There is a Chinese saying depicts home: preferring to sleep in dog’s pad than king’s bed, meaning the feeling of comfort and at ease at home is most important. Here is a photo of “home” constructed by some kind-hearted people for some free-spirited (strayed) dogs at Hong Kong.
