It is my 32nd birthday :-)

I turned 32 today. I was born in 1984. According to the way Chinese calculate the age, I should be 33, but our way I just turned 32. Whether 32 or 33, it is a big number. I have come a long journey. If I am lucky enough I will have more years coming forward on my journey.

I tried to write my thoughts about my past life, and I wrote many things. Write and delete. Writing something and deleting it. I could not figure out how to tell my thoughts clearly. Then suddenly the first paragraph of tales of two cities of Charles Dickens came into my mind. I think it illustrate everything I wanted to say.

It was the best of times,
It was the worst of times,
It was the age of wisdom,
It was the age of foolishness,
It was the epoch of belief,
It was the epoch of incredulity,
It was the season of Light,
It was the season of Darkness,
It was the spring of hope,
It was the winter of despair,
I had everything before me,
I had nothing before me,
I was all going direct to Heaven,
I was all going direct the other way
