CELEBRATIONS AND CHALLENGES
Today is Canada's birthday. The sun is out and so are the mosquitoes. Life does have its bite. I wouldn't want it any other way, would you? So cheers! Let us celebrate - to Canada and life with all its flavours.
This month brings with it new challenges for me - the Ultimate Blog Challenge and NaBloPoMo for July. I feel up to the challenges as I have been habitually tapping out words almost every day. .
I am reluctant to call myself a writer but words are my passion. They come to me unwittingly, when I least expect them and when I most need them. Other times I struggle to find them. They always come eventually. I just have to have the discipline to put my fingers on the keyboard and start.
BlogHer is celebrating its 10th year anniversary, therefore the theme for the month is DECADE. I like to take this opportunity to look back over my last 10 years or further - to take stock and see where I have been and to decide where I want to go. It is probably not easy. Most likely it will be painful to do it honestly.
I know from experience that I can never go home again for that 'home' (China) is not the village or country that I once knew. I can no longer read nor speak the language with any fluency. So am I really Chinese? Finding and feeling 'home' again is another challenge.
There's a lot of work ahead, a lot of material and memories to sift through. It is worth the effort. I am looking for Hafong. I am searching for me. I am up for the challenge. I am going to type my heart out. How about you? Will you join me?
