《父与子》Father and son

我沿着爱的轮廓
窜起我记忆里你的脸庞
在这即将来临的永恒的离别
可是你也用同样的眼神看着我,说
儿子呀,我知道你也和我一样

从前与你的离别总燃起重逢的希望
O 不是这一次,也不会有下一次
所以我总带着希望你也能记住的微笑
可是你也这样的对着我微笑,说
儿子呀,我知道你也和我一样

你问我,想不想留下来,或许
多一分钟、多一天、多一年
我说,想,真的很想,就像海洋能永远拥抱着河流
你不想我离开,我说
儿子呀,你知道的我也和你一样

I follow the contour of love
to connect the memory of your face
for this coming parting forever
but you look at me in the same way, and say
hey son, I know we have the same feeling too

A goodbye used to be an arising hope
for our next meeting, O no, not this time, and not anymore
So I always smile to you and wish you to remember
but you smile to me in the same way, and say
hey son, I know we have the same feeling too

You ask me if I want to stay a little bit longer, may be
a minute more, a day more, or a year more
I reply, I do, I really do, to be like the ocean forever embracing the river
you do not wish for me to leave, and I say
hey son, you know we have the same feeling too

Stories of you
2014/11/05

《那些关于你的故事》Stories of you

我很常写关于你的事
故事里没有泪水
却带着我一丝丝的悲伤
没有声音
却让我想起我们天真的欢笑
没有颜色
却像是一幅由许多连在一起的幸福片段的画
没有你的名字
却全都是和你一起生活的回忆

/送给那些和我曾经一起走过一段人生路程我挚爱的人

I often write about you
those stories without tear
but carry a little bit of my sadness
without sound
but remind me of our innocent laughter
without color
but like a painting that linked many events of happiness
without your name
but contain all the memory of  you

/Dedicated to my family and friends and those who I have loved and who have walked beside me for a part of journey of my life.

老天托我给你一个口信…好好的爱我。
GOD HAS A MESSAGE FOR YOU….LOVE ME.

图片小故事
我常常对人类某些想法感到很困惑。我们为什么要孩子来到世上然后又告诉他们世界就是这么的残酷。我想,残酷的不是世界,是我们自己。不是吗?我相信如果我们愿意给世界一点一滴的爱,爱会汇聚成一条河流,让她流经的世界会更加的美丽。这也是你的梦想吗?

THE LITTLE STORY ABOUT THE PHOTO
I am often very confused with some human behaviors and thoughts. Why would we want to bring our children to this World and ask them to face the cruel reality of the World later on? For me it is not the World that is cruel, it is ourselves. Isn’t it? I believe if every of us is willing to give a little drop of love for this World, love will flow like a river and to make the World more beautiful wherever the river goes. Aren’t you sharing the same vision with me?

Rainy days

《雨天》Rainy days

世界在下着雨
有时从云那里来
有时却从心那里来

如果从云那里来
我会坐在天边
给太阳一个微笑

如果从心那里来
我会扮成了太阳
给自己一个微笑

The world is raining
sometimes it comes from the clouds
but sometimes it comes from my heart

if it comes from the clouds
I will sit on the edge of sky
to give the sun a smile

if it comes from my heart
I will pretend to be the sun
to give my heart a smile

这张照片是去槟城参加一位朋友的婚礼,在新郎的家拍的。这是他和弟弟养的一只狗,叫Big Boy,好好玩的名字。

THE LITTLE STORY ABOUT THE PHOTO
This is a photo taken when I was attending my friend’s wedding in Penang, Malaysia, and was taken in his home. This is a dog raised both by him and his younger brother. The dog has a cute name, the Big Boy.

Your lovely comment is always encouraging.

There is a place
2014/10/20

《有一个地方》There is a place

安静似乎在这里落了脚
虽然偶尔几个朋友会来拜访
一起欣赏我没有花的花园
听着没有声音的乐曲
就算没人说一句话
我的心却装了满满的快乐

这里或许不曾存在
因为大多时候我也会找不到它
只有当我的心清静的时候
这里就会突然来到我的跟前
我没看到这里有任何的路
更不用说知道来这里的路

或许你会问,
那朋友如何能来到这里,
我一只手按着我的心
另一只手按着你的心,
我没说一句话,
闭上了我的眼睛。
It seems like silence
is settling in this place
although some friends
might come to visit even in the rains
to admire this garden
of no flower like Eden
to listen this music
of  no sound
even when no one
is talking
there is only joy
in my heart

May be this place does not exist,
because sometime I could not find it,
only when my heart is calmed,
then the place just come to my realization,
I don’t see a single street here,
not even to mention if I know any road that leads to here.

May be you would ask,
how would your friends come to this place,
with one hand I place on my heart,
and the other on your heart
without a word,
I have my eyes closed.

/这是我妹妹的猫,叫Miyu。Miyu好奇怪,虽然以前她很讨厌我,可是到了发情期她却变成另一只猫似的。一般在这期间她只会粘着我,也只有这个时候是最好拍摄她的时候。动物的个性真的好奇怪,但也好可爱。在我之前的贴子有写到,现在她已和我友好相处了。
/This is my sister’s cat, her name is Miyu. Miyu is very strange, she hated me a lot, but when she is in her period, she would become a different cat. Only during this time, she would glue to me whole day long, and this is often the time that I could take her photos easily. Animal’s character is really strange, and yet adorable. As mentioned in my previous post, now she has befriended me again.

The Cat and the Leader
2014/10/16

My friend asked me, what lessons can a cat teach us in order to become a good leader? Allow me to tell the story from one of my mistakes. My younger sister brought a cat to our family sometime ago, and I tried to discipline the cat like a dog. As you can imagine, I failed squarely. This is not a lesson only about knowing the differences between cats and dogs, but to remind me although dogs’ obedient make us feel superior, nonetheless the pride and ego of the cat can thwart this sense of superiority. Ever since that I do not harass the cat to listen to me, she has been getting friendly with me, and occasionally trying to play with me. This opens my mind about the qualities of being a good leader is to accept and tolerate the diversity in characters, behaviors, and ideas of people, and furthermore to guide them in an appropriate way so that we reach farther and higher goals (in life) together. Do you agree? One more thing, dogs and cats can easily forgive people’s mistake and to love them again, so why can’t us human do the same?

//This discussion is related to the post https://riveroftheheartblog.wordpress.com/2014/10/08/senseless-quote-of-the-furry-world-photo-series-6/
//To tolerate and to forgive are not easy things to do, and I believe most of the people and including I feel the same. However, we should not resist to have incremental improvement for ourselves each and everyday in the hope that when we look back at the distance we have covered, it would be an important journey in life.

我的朋友问我猫和当领导有什么关系?这事要从我的错误说起。我妹妹养了一只猫,但是我却把牠当狗来教导。可想而知,我碰了一鼻子灰。这事不仅仅是告诉我猫和狗个性上的区别,更是告诉我纵然狗因为他的顺从而让我们觉得自己处在的优势,但是猫的高傲却彻底的践踏了我的这种心态。现在很多时候我都不去打扰那只猫,反而她和我更亲近了,也会主动靠近我和和我嬉戏。所以作为一个真正的领导人,心胸要比其他人更大更广,去包容和接纳不同人的个性、习惯和见解,并循循善诱的去引导其他人和自己走向更高远的(人生)目标。你同意吗?哦还有一点,狗和猫是那么容易的原谅了人的过错和从新去爱人,如果动物可以这样,何况我们人类呢?

A garden

有人说花儿来自天堂,如果这是真的,我可以在你的心里找到一座花园吗?

The beauty of the world

或许世界的美不在于她所隐藏起来的,而是在于我们的心。

A magical moment knocks at your dream in the first light of the morning. She asks, do you wish to come with me to the enchanted forest?

I dance with the wind,
I dance with the light,
I dance with the flowers,
I dance with the stars.
with the humble you,
I dance with your heart,
with the humble world,
I dance for my life.

风儿和我跳着舞,
光和我跳着舞,
花儿和我跳着舞,
星星和我跳着舞,
因为你的谦卑,
你的心和我跳着舞,
因为世界的谦卑,
我为我的生命而跳着舞。

———————————————————————————————————

Earth’s Call Photo Series is created for the love of nature, and this includes the human kind. A harmony relationship between Mother Nature with the human kind has been suggested in ancient philosophy like the book Tao De Jing (道德经), also known by the author of the book Lao Tze or Lao Zi(老子). The adjective ‘important’ is insufficient to describe the importance of nature. Nature, is the fundamental of our very existence, of our happiness, of the growth of our wisdom, and of love. It is the home of our heart.

Completeness

Do you agree that life is not about living towards death, but instead towards completeness?

《沙漠之花》The flowers of desert

There is a kind of Love
flourishes in the cracks of time
to see her own life
as the symbol of eternity

有一种爱
开在时间乍现的裂缝里
把自己的生命
当成永恒

A little secret

《一个秘密》A little secret

我问花儿
为什么爱
没有细胞
却能生长
没有血液
却能存活
没有神经
却能感受
不在天堂
却很幸福

花儿说,这
是我和世界
一个小小的秘密

I ask the Flower
why love
can grow
without a cell
can live
without the blood
can sense
without a nerve
is feeling blessed
without being in Heaven

The Flower replies, this
is my little secret
with the World

《慵懒的时刻》A lazy moment
2014/05/11

《慵懒的时刻》A lazy moment

有时候我想
懒惰一下
谁也不想见
音乐也不想听
连梦也不想
连想什么也不想
或许我应该
找一个秘密的角落
让时间
也找不到我
然后看着自己
渐渐融化在
虚空里
没有留下
任何痕迹

Sometime I wish
to be lazy for a moment
to see no one
to listen to no music
even to dream no dream
or not to think about thinking itself
may be I should
find  a secret place
that even time
cannot find me
then to watch myself
slowly dissolving into
emptiness
leaving without
a single trace
