In a Hurry -- Shirley's 491st Friendly Greeting - August 3, 2015

Hi,Dear Friends

How are you? Have you had a good weekend?

This is a quick letter to you in a hurry.

I have left from Beijing because of the power failure in the classrooms in Beijing.

It is a big pity that I have to stop the creating job on my biggest size painting; it is a good luck for me to be able to come to Wuxi Ciy of Jiangsu Province that is near Shanghai to see my father and to have a reunion with the family members of my brother and sister while working on my 5th album of painting for my new international travel to the USA.

To be honest, it is really a " pain " process to do the latter each year, for I have to write and to edit so many things to state, to explain and to forecast my cross-culture and comprehensive art dream... However, it is also a good course to re-think, recall and to summarize what I want to do, what I have done and what is the bad and good part in my past work and the most important is: How to improve it and push it forward...

It is also the best course let my heart full of the gratitude to the world and to so many kind people who have helped me and would like to help me... Every time, when I think of these, I do feel warmth in my heart and I do wish to do something to return the society and those kind people by helping more people in the world.

With these ideas, I have been involved myself into the hard jobs by working at least 16 hours each day. I know clear that is a bad thing for my health, but I do wish my life and personal value can be used on the great career to do something pioneering for the progress of human being. Just like a little glowworm, to burn out itself while lighting up the others, even though its life is short and its power is so small, it is something worth to do.

With this idea, I have stopped painting temporarily and I have written more than 20 articles already. I do not want to stop on the pure artistic skills, but also improve myself on the academic and business layers for doing my work better in the future.

Now I am writing to you in a hurry for I have completed something relates many people and maybe you.

If it is convenient with you, could you please check it and let me know whether there is anything relates you or someone you know wrong or needs to be corrected, or I have missed something or someone in my writing. If I have not gotten any responding relates you in 3 days, I will think it is right about you and my album will be printed according to what I have written. Is it OK?

Take care and thanks, have a good weekend and new week.

Sincerely yours,


Temporary File 1: My Cross-cultural and Comprehensivee Art Study and Practice
