Zhejiang college essay topic

《行走在消逝中》

BABELFISH: Walks in dissipating  

GOOGLE:  walking in the Dispersal  

icyeyes, translates it "Walking in the elapsing"
http://bbs.chinadaily.com.cn/vie ... &extra=page%3D1

My robot says its "poetic" (after ruotong said it  :) )
and thinks it might be something like "A walk through the fading past (in China)"

How would the experts here translate that college essay title?  Is it "poetic"?

In America, students might think it meant a state of being drugged senseless.

"Oblivion" is an interesting word :)  ... its popular meanings
are somewhat different than the pure dictionary definition.
