Saturday, February 16, 2008, fine|
It’s getting warmer and warmer here, but my daughter called me, complaining that it’s very cold in Sichuan and adding that she’s determined to enter the college in Northern China at last, which agrees with my thought.
When she was studying in the senior high school in Beijing, she missed the drizzle in the south and told me she would go to study in a southern college. I didn’t try to persuade her, though I expected her to go on studying in Beijing because I knew I couldn’t prevent her. Moreover, I thought young persons should go to different places to experince different lives.
Having experienced a short life in the south, she gives up what she desired before, telling me again and again that she longs for the sunlight in the north. During the Spring Festival holidays, she hung her towel in the sunlight all day long. Then she put it close to her nose and said she had missed the smell of the sun for ages. Her satisfied expression affected me too. Later, when she met her two close friends, she complained that they both grew taller while she herself remained the same as before, which she owed to the lack of the sunlight in Sichuan. Therefore she made her decision.
I hadn’t expected that climate could change her mind so easily. However, I have come to a conclusion: Never have people known what they like without trying.
PS. marya, thank you for your good tip.
