Sunny weekend



Traditional Chinese music

Attended a small traditional Chinese music concert tonight. Seven pieces of classical and one newly composed episodes were performed by Music from China Ensemble of New York. The artists performed very well by various musical instruments including erhu, yangqin, dizi, pipa and guzheng.

Seems our baby likes some of the pieces too. :)

Beautiful day

Blue sky, white cloud and green bud …spring is here.

Yaoyao the baby

We decided to assign “Yao Yao (尧尧)” as the nickname to our oncoming baby.

尧,高也。——《说文》

Calligraphic classic

王羲之《兰亭序》:“天下第一行书” 。

Baby kick

Our baby is now very active on quickening. I felt the most powerful kick tonight. :D

Spring is almost here

Finally the long winter has gone and the spring comes, almost. Here in Champaign-Urbana, the spring is pretty short and the summer will be arriving in a rush. We’d better enjoy the beautiful spring before it’s too late. :)

你侬我侬

晚上去听了香槟华人基督教会星期五家庭团契婚姻讲座《原生家庭》,学唱了这首歌。歌词源自元初大书法家赵孟頫之妻管道升为他所作之《我侬词》。

你侬我侬,忒煞情多,情多处,热如火。
沧海可枯,坚石可烂,此爱此情永远不变。
把一块泥,捏一个你,留下笑容,使我长忆。
再用一块,塑一个我,长陪君旁,永伴君侧。
将咱两个,一起打破,再将你我,用水调和。
重新和泥,重新再做,再捏一个你,再塑一个我。
从今以后,我可以说,我泥中有泥,你泥中有我。

Research, research, …

Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.
