Kate Huang, August 2011

This note was inspired by a text message from a good friend. The warmth of friendship and the inspiration started growing in my mind and one hour later, I wrote down this note. That’s one of the best things about friendship – one starts a spark, and together it becomes  fireworks!

You once said “In competition with time, it always celebrates its victory proudly.”
I said “My dear friend, time does not compete and is not proud. It is humans who
haven’t learned to be humble.”

When we are bored, we try to kill time.
When we are rushed, we try to chase time.
When we are aged, we try to fight time…
Time walks in its own pace, from chaos through eternity.
It doesn’t go beyond, it doesn’t fall behind,
it does not compete, how can it be proud?
It is a constant phenomenon that
cannot change, and cannot be changed.
Once we learn to coexist peacefully with time,
then we will see,
it moves on with us,
takes us away from where we don’t want to be,
send us to where we want to reach.

Time, is a comforting constant in life.

你曾說”時間總是在競逐中驕傲地慶祝她的勝利”
我說”親愛的朋友,時間它不競逐,也不驕傲;而是人們尚未學會謙卑”

無聊的時候,我們殺時間,
匆忙的時候,我們趕時間,
年老的時候,我們抵抗時間…
從渾沌到永恆,時間以自己的步調行進著,
從不超前,亦不落後,
既不競逐,怎能驕傲?
它是恆常的現象,
不會改變,也不被改變。
當我們學會與時間平和共處時,
我們將會了解-
它與我們一起前進,
帶我們遠離不悅的境地
送我們抵達想望的地方
