Sowing & Mowing - Shirley's 315th Friendly Greeting, August 22, 2011

How are you?

This week, I have been in the deeply touched.

First of all, I was touched by my own family members.

-- After my son left for Australia via Shanghai, I knew his 3 - step plan: settles down, works on buying house, and then to pick up me to live in Sydney. :-)

-- Before he has bought a new house for me to spend my afterlife in Wuxi City by the Tai Lake at any time I wish.

Secondly, I was touched by the company and one of my cooperation partners that I have been servicing and cooperating since 1993.

-- According to the arrangement of my bosses, two company leaders Mr. Liu Wei and Mr He Jianliang led 4 department managers came to my home to see me with fresh flowers and basket of fruiter.

-- A manager from Shanghai Securities Newspaper Office, Mr. Zheng Chuyi came to see me with their special tea and brought the good wishes of my cooperation partners from Shanghai.

Thirdly, I was touched by the good admission of my exploration of cross-culture and integrated arts.

-- I have gotten the Letter of Admission from the Graduate School & Chinese Painting Institute of Chinese National Academy of Arts, I will be a Chinese Painting graduate student in Beijing.

-- I have also gotten the invitations from some American university and a Language Association. they are interested in my integrated arts.

Lastly, by the good help from an old friend from Taiwan, I have read two books on Chinese traditional medicine and was touched by the basic views of the books:

-- Human being’s body is in fact a precision instrument; it has the amazing repair ability to repair itself.
--To be in the sickness, it is just the process that the human body is repairing itself. The best repairing method is to follow the natural rules, to live a regular life.

With so much touching, I do have some new feelings about life, work and health.

-- As you sow, you shall mow.

-- Anything will be returned, no matter a good thing or a bad thing.

-- To help the others is just helping ourselves, if we can often help the others and this world, to perform our personal and social responsibilities as a kind family member, employee, manager, work partner or artist, we can certainly be helped someday, even though we did not wish to be returned when we performed our duties.

-- Health is same. If we treat it better, it will return as a good health. Otherwise, we will be returned by the diseases. Therefore, we must perform our duties to look after our own health, just like to be responsible to our family members, companies, cooperation partners and our own individual dreams…

How do you think of my idea, do you agree with me? Do you have anything special to share?

I am just a student on Art of Painting, Music, English and Management, to work on the web site in my free time. I would really like to do a few things with what I have learned to make this little web site to be an Electronic Bridge of Inter-Art & Cross - Culture Exchange, Chinese Language Learning & Friendship Making. To help the others while to improve myself.

I would like to appreciate you for your understanding, directions, supports and help.
