November 1st, 2013 Osifu was born in a small village on the banks of the Huaihe River, which used to be his childhood paradise, with beautiful mountains, clear water, golden sand, flying egrets and birds, lush forests and bamboos – a fairyland on earth. Osifu lived in this small village before he went to the […]


Today is October 5th 2012, August 20th in the Chinese lunar calendar, an ordinary day. Look up and observe the sky where it is clear with light wind and clouds. Look down and examine the earth where an autumnal vast expanse runs its due course. Sit quietly in front of the window and close the […]


Today is January 12th 2013, December 1st in the Chinese lunar calendar. Now China is in winter, the coldest time of the year.

Today is January 2nd 2014, Thursday, the second day of the new year. There is thick smog outside the window, and the city, streets, flow of people, and traffic are looming in the smog, and everything is so illusory. I brewed a pot of Maoyan berry tea, tasted it; it was bitter, then sweet. The […]
