Auckland to Hot Water Beach, Coromandel

Day 1: 24 May 2014 Status: Drifting. Amazed. Awkward. Mind playing: The Cup Song I’ve travelled alone before – volunteering in Cambodia – and both trip felt different. I guess Cambodia was easier… Continue reading

我。不準

我 不準自己哭 不准自己發脾氣 不准自己對外洩露太多 不准自己對其他人事物有所期待   我對自己說 長大了要堅強 跌倒了爬起來自己呼呼 眼淚流乾了,血止了 -就要繼續往前走 那,一開始,為何要哭?   久了,哭泣變成一件很難的事 原來,想哭卻哭不出的感覺 -很糟糕   “月半月圓尤存月 本來無暗復何明。 一片寒光耀古今 三千世界總輝騰。”   一句話,點醒了自己;但也只是一霎那 畢竟人啊, 私慾太重,虛榮心太強,夢想與自我中心太強。 那個無謂的自尊心繼續鑽著牛角尖。   沒有退路,只得往前走
