This is a blog about life.
About the sound of life,
the colors of life,
the tastes of life,
and it is all about the river of thoughts that flows through my heart.
I want to share my thoughts with you just like a painting,
a poem,
and a song,
but in words.



This blog is a compilation of the poems and some words of me.

This blog is about the past of me, in one of the most difficult period of my life.

      Thank you for stopping by. It seems like most bloggers are a group of Spiritual people, who name their blog with a spiritual name :). It is a joy to meet you here and others, and wish you have a nice weekend, and live a great life as your blog name suggested!

  8. Thanks for liking my blog posts. I would like to nominate you for an award. 🙂

    • Dear Mixedupmeme,

      Your blog is very lovely, with your songs, I love it. Thank you for your nomination, and it is my honor to accept it. I love your short and sweet award post :).

      My apology for the late reply, I took some rest today due to long hours of work, sport and writing for the blog, all are my passions but sometime I am just getting a bit too exhausted.

      Thank you once again for your nomination :).

      Warm regards

      • I can understand the tired part. I am retired and have all the time in the world to play in WordPress. lol But it does take a lot of time. It takes time to write and prepare something that looks nice. And it takes time to reply to those kind enough to comment.
        Thank you for liking my blog. I see many are approving of yours too.

        No, your reply is not late. I have gotten replies weeks later. lol

        And a River doesn’t always rush downstream. Sometimes it just slowly flows but eventually gets there. 🙂

      • Dear Mixedupmeme,

        In your blog, I feel that you are such a playful person in your heart. It is so wonderful to listen to the song =), and playful lyrics!

        For the river that does not rush downstream, I totally agree with you and here is the post I posted some weeks ago

        Thank you so much for your encouragement, and hope that my blog have brought you a little bit of joy in life.


  9. Hi, I am letting you know that I have nominated you for some blogging awards! Should you choose to participate here are the rules: http://wp.me/p2v1s2-y1

  10. It’s evident the journey through your darkest times have brought you considerable wisdom and a gift to share with many.
    Thank you…

    • Dear Denise,

      I don’t know if it is my darkest time because I guess I have at least another 20 years to go in my life =). When I look back for things happen to me in these three years, the past away of my dearest father without me by his side, the urge to accompany my mom for her last few years (in fact in just 7 months she has became extremely weak due to the cancer), and the leaving of my girlfriend without wanting to join me in my journey through my heart. I feel that it is not a curse, it is a bless, to see how strong one’s soul can be, and to understand the real me, and it is a joy o found that I am always the person that I thought I should be.

      My parents, are my guardians and Angels, we came from a poor family but they give me all the happiness in my childhood. They have made me a soul who would never turn his eye away from the stars, and the heaven. I know and truly understand this is the most luxurious life I have enjoyed in my entire life.

      When the night has come, and for some, they see the stars rises in their heart, I am just lucky to be the one, I know.

      Denise, thank you for your kind comment, I am looking forward for the lesson of your life experiences, and to feel the inspiration from you as a person with so much wisdom to share =).

      Warm regards

  11. I nominate you for very inspiring inspiring blogger award, your number 5 on my list which I’m still working on my about page, thanks and much love xo

    • Dear Old World Charm,

      I feel honour to be nominated, no matter the number of the list =). Hope to come back to read many of our inspiring posts, and photos, and more!

      Love too =)!

      p.s. will be a bit slow to reply due to taking a lot of time with my mom nowadays.

      • Hello, I am the one with slow reply this time sorry, thanks for your time, just wanted to let you know how inspiring you are, I have witnessed cancer killing the body and effects of medication for the better and worse, thoughts are with you and your individual experience, sad and hard to be part of, all my love, Melissa xo

      • Dear Melissa

        I missed the reply to you.

        I often now like to comment when people put a quote on a blog post or facebook, just for my training to think the opposite way, so pardon me if I am giving some difficult opinions =).

        Thank you again for the love of my blog and writings, and I really have to come out something better, for me, for you, and for others to enjoy (LIFE) =)!


      • All good kc you have not caused trouble, I am just a little challenged in not knowing what to say sometimes to reply or explain my thoughts or views and tend to get a little overwhelmed as I am not much of a writer, that’s why I use other’s quotes mostly and admire you so much as you can say a lot with so few words in your poems, you have helped me much thank you…………………

      • Will do my best to reply to your comments and apologize for being slow, some days I don’t think so well or clearly mainly due to a lot of medication I am on which side effects are not very nice for me or my mind…………..take care xo

      • No need to reply every of comment, I am just having fun myself too by asking some questions these days. If you are putting all the best quotes that I agree, than I can only put a like most of the time, without able to comment =)!

        Don’t be stressed for needing to comment.

        Have a nice day, and smile!

      • Okay thanks I understand and appreciate your communication, yes the day has been nice, listening to the birds now as the sun is setting here in New Zealand

    • Dear Super G,

      It was your profile icon attracted to me, that I thought that the photo was taken in Santorini. I love the positive energy in your blog, and really enjoy reading your posts as well.

      o may be the time has been kind to me who leave little sign of her on my face. I am always misunderstood by first acquaintance friends that I am in my twenties, but in fact I am into forty :). Probably life has treated me very kind.

      I wish that my words would bring much happiness to you.

  15. Dear Qiquan, I really like your poetry. I can’t find the button to “follow” your site though.

    • I am glad that you enjoy my writing. The flow button is always at the top of the left hand side. Probably you need to scroll to the top of the page, in most cases it should be visible. I am using safari on my Mac book and iPad it looks fine with all the button. I hope that you can find it.

  20. Qiquan, I always enjoy my visits to your blog and have nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award as a gesture of respect. I know you were nominated last year as well, so this is an indication of just how inspiring your poems are! If you are interested in such things, you can see my bit of fun with the award here:


    • Dear Thomas,

      There is always a mixed feelings in getting the award, just one thing for sure, it is just wonderful to have given the award by a friend, or fellow blogger =). My only thank to you and the other readers, is to continuously giving my best effort to the writing, and to let people enjoy the reading!

      I know I have not come to your posts lately, but I will. I have squeezing the juice of time out of my everyday living to write and to read. I feel strange recently, that before there was a period of raining (ideas) season, then it went into the drying season, and the rain comes back and I barely can register every drop of rain water coming down. The interaction with fellow bloggers do help me a lot in getting inspirations. Sincerely thank you again for the nomination, and definitely I hope to collect more from you the awards (but I might not know how to write a good reply and a good thank you note then).


      • Don’t worry about my blog, Qiquan. The award is about you and your blog. You are right when you say the best “thank you” is to give your best efforts to writing. I, and all the others who visit your blog will indeed enjoy the reading.

  21. you have a beautiful blog filled with beautiful words 🙂

    • Because I have a simple dream to always see the smile on the face of people.

      Thank you for your kind words, that leave a footprint in my blog, and in my heart :)! But do no hesitate to give your comment in improving my words, and my blog.

      Kee Chua

    • Dear Kavita

      Your nomination is always an indispensable motivation for me to continue my writing. The more I collected these awards, the higher the level I should set for myself :).

      Thank you very much my dear friend.

      Wish you have a very nice day!

  24. My dear fren, I wish to dedicate this story to you wholeheartedly.
    I copied it elsewhere (of course :D)

    A young man is walking along the ocean and sees a beach on which thousand and thousand of starfish hv washed ashore.

    Further along he sees an old man , walking slowly and stooping often, picking up one starfish after another and tossing each one gently into the ocean.

    “Why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” he asks.

    “Because the sun is up and the tide is going out and if I don throw them further in they will die.”

    “But, old man, don’t u realize there r miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it! You can’t possibly save them all, you can’t even save one tenth of them. In fact, even if you work all day, your efforts won’t make any difference at all.”

    The old man listened calmly and then bent down to pick up another starfish and threw it into the sea. “It made a difference to that one.”

    • Thank you for this wonderful story and I will always remember it as a teaching to myself :), and will never forget about it.

  25. A starfish wants to say thank you 😀

  26. Friend congratulations!!! 🙂
    I’ve nominated your blog for the Shine On Award.
    Plz Check it!

  27. Where are you, warm kindred spirit? I have been missing your poems.

    • Dear Marcus, thanks for reminding me, I do write some but they always remain in the draft section because I am not satisfied with the writing lately. I have also been missing myself lately for not publishing anything. I wish within one or two days I could publish one of the writings. For the time being, I will post one or two photos with some nice words.

      Thank you.

      • .. and there you are! Nice to read you again. All the best!

      • Thank you once again Marcus. Sorry that I have been drifting away. I am finding my way home now.
