Labor, youth, maturity and maternity

        May is  a versatile month in 2013 in China, which commences from the International Laborers' Day (May 1st day ), going through the transition from spring to the summer, celebrating the youths' Day,  the mother's day ,memorizing the disaster of the earthquake,2008, preparing for the dargon boating day in the next month.
       Then,individually,  four words are given to label this month --labor, youth, maturity and maternity.
       Labor often comes along in daily life. For a modern married woman, housework is additional unpaid labor which is considered to be  shouldered by wife for the granted. 
       Youth is wading with the galloping time. But the movie So Young has really aroused some of the collective memories of the 70s, 80s in China. Maybe, this movie has offered a excuse for our nostalgia.
      No matter  how ideal our dream is, what we have to face is the reality. What is reality? It is not the novel, nor the drama or movie. To face reality, what should we do ? To discard unrealistic fantancies as gabage and then arm ourselves to the teeth with rationality, sophistication, calmness,etc, which are symbolic for maturity.
     I am not a mature woman now. I have a sweet and adorable mom, but I have not become a Mom. Recently, I have suffered so much pressure. H.o.p.e! There is a sentence on a web, saying, hold on and pain ends. A encouraging sentence!

Then what is the reality that can foster or support your so-called unpractical idea?

A singer who does not aspire to be a writer is not a good teacher.

    fluteyi: thank u! All I want is to share my true ideas and thoughts with friends as well as myself. Sometimes, writting helps us think more deeply.
    It does. And sometimes it brings on a joke! Anyway the pen should be mightier than the sword. Then I thought, but it is hard to fight someone with a humble pen - unless I squirt some ink in his eye. But nowadays we are writing with computers. Hit someone over the head with a 15 inch laptop should do it!
