🍁11.21.2018 A Tree (一棵树)
This morning when I saw the gracefully shaped tree set against a light blue sky, I remembered the lyrics of a song, sung by Anson Hu, called Butterfly:
Toward the morning dew, Care free
To a free country, Even if it's just a tree.
When you have a burning desire in your heart, you ‘ll do anything, even abandon your familiar surroundings and go to a foreign place to seek your freedom．
今天早上当我看到一棵形状优美大树在浅蓝色天空衬托下，想起了胡彦斌所唱的一首歌蝴蝶里的几句歌词:＂迎着晨露 无拘无束, 到一个自由的国度, 哪怕仅仅是一棵树＂当你心中有强烈的渴望，你可以舍弃自己熟悉的环境，到一个陌生的地方，去追求自由。

I am spending time with my family, so thankful for having such a stable and prosperous life, having a stable job, having good health, and a passion for the things that I love.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
