Write at the edge of 2009

2009 is here, officially!

Walking back home from my office, I spent the midnight passing. The street was silent, cold and empty. Soon firecrackers broke the chill from a distance. But it was a quiet and insensible new year eve. Look out! a young couple were holding a long kiss with each other across the street. Thank you! Even in this corner of the world, a holiday spirit prevails.

Maybe one day I will inevitably become old and a new year passing will mean nothing new any longer. Nonetheless, I will still miss the new year passing in the fairytale-like Montreal, in the classic-modern NYC and by the snow-topped Rocky Mountains. And I will miss this one and the young couple that lighted up a forgotten Shanghai street, a street that took me back home with a holiday spirit.

Howdy 2009!
