I had a very curious childhood. But maybe that had something to do with having a lot of energy that didn’t find any outlet.
I wanted to be a dancer—this was my passion, but at the age of ten, I suddenly went into a dead faint one day, having been a very skinny but very healthy child. Nobody took much notice. But then it happened again. So I was taken to the family doctor, and it was discovered that I had an incredibly rapid heartbeat. Nobody had noticed this; it was, I suppose, part of my excitability and liveliness.
But my mother got very alarmed. This rapid pulse should have been ignored. But my mother was quite sure that it meant that I had a “bad heart.” So she went immediately to the convent where I attended school and told the nuns, “This child mustn’t have any physical training, she mustn’t play tennis, she mustn’t even swim.” At ten, you know, you don’t argue with your mother—she tells you you’re sick, you believe her. When I would be about to climb stairs, she would say, “Now, take it slowly, remember your heart.” And then of course the tragedy was that I was told I mustn’t dance anymore. So the dancing stopped like that, which was a terrible deprivation for me. It’s really only in the last decade of my life that I’ve been able to face all this. When I realized what my mother had done to me, I went through, at the age of twenty, such resentment—this happens to many of us, but I really had reason. When I was thirty, I began to understand why she did it, and thus to pity her. By the time she died in ’76 we were reconciled. But it was an extraordinary story.

In brief, my mother was unhappily married. It was a dreadful marriage.

I suspect she was sometimes in love with other men; but my mother would never have dreamt of having an affair. Because her marriage was unhappy, she concentrated on her children.

Happy Valley, Hong Kong. 13th August 2017. “A cool breeze stirred my hair at that moment, as the night wind began to come down from the hills, but it felt like a breath from another world.” ― Francis Marion Crawford

Chai Wan, Hong Kong. 4th August 2017. “My desire and wish is that the things I start with should be so obvious that you wonder why I spend my time stating them. This is what I aim at because the point of philosophy is to start with something so simple as not to seem worth stating, and to end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it.” ― Bertrand Russell, The Philosophy of Logical Atomism

秋天適合回來
把我們的劇情還給電影
永恆並非不可能
你要它就來了

一盒乾淨透明的雨水
我從來不知道
盒子上有個裂縫
雨水又要 滿滿一盒雨水
又要 慢慢漏掉

Kennedy Town, Hong Kong. 26th July 2017.

Last night back to a regular gathering with 2 bestie of mine Robert Cheung and Daniel Tung in Kennedy Town, don't be misunderstood that they're playing their phone for whole night, but last night three of us just too focus on conversation until we're walked to the promenade of Kennedy Town then sit down and checking the phone for 5 minutes, then back to crazily chatting again, it was a particular quiet moment.
