It Was


[“Structure Two” – Phoenelai (LINK)]

This song sounds like one of my older ones. You know? I wish I can go back to tracking music. I think it would make me be a bit happier. It might even help me release some of my ‘hidden’ anger.

I spent the day out with Albert and Jenny. He came and picked me up around 2pm, went to Chinatown by 3pm, walked around to look for a glass case for the Lord Guan statue Jenny got him, then picked up a wok for Jenny’s cooking activities. We went to quite a few places, even to a bakery that I haven’t been to for more than 20 years.

More than 20 years… At first, I didn’t recognize it, but as I scanned the room, some vague images of mirrors on the walls, and orange couches, wooden tables, and beige floors came back. I was really young back then. That was when Chinatown was the heart of the Chinese population. Now, Richmond is the heart of the Chinese population. [sigh]

Hmmm… A lot of questions were exchanged between Albert and I today. I don’t want to reiterate any of them here but it was almost tiring.

Basic question for myself – “Am I a dreamer?” or rather, “Am I dreaming?”

  1. Li, did you create those images? I particularly like the 2 image of the tower. Very mesmerizing! It literarlly makes you stop in awe…

  2. No, I didn’t create those. Those two towers is actually the same building. It is being built in Dubai, UAE as the world’s tallest building. That entire city is going to be super futuristic. Here’s a link: CLICK HERE

Leemanism is about my views, my thoughts, and my feelings with as little filtering as possible. These concepts are not reflected in the people I value and are associated with. People who accept me, adhere to the parts where we are compatible and tolerate the parts where we are not. So however people perceive me to be, ultimately it obviously doesn't mean the friends I mention in this blog are the same as me. It means it's possible they are similar or the same, as well as different than me. It is highly unusual for people to be completely compatible with each other.

With that out of the way, and to make things clear, I never said I am a good person, nor am I trying to be one, though I would rather live with the empathetic than with the cruel. I would not deliberately do harm. I rather stand up against injustice than to pretend it doesn't exist. However, I understand consequences. The police is there to enforce the law, but not deter crimes from happening. Which means people must do what they must do to protect themselves, before the law of the land takes over and even then, the law of the land isn't there to protect you. It's there to protect the general consensus. Even if you may be right, society may deem you wrong - even most of your friends may side with society, than protect you. The law will almost always side with society.

We are few. Stay safe. (•̀ᵥᵥ•́)
