A Brighter, Ordinary, Day, a Poem

What’s, left, behind, translated…

The Wavelength that Passed Through the Collar of the Asteroid Belt of the Aging Dog of the Astronomer

The Blue Whale’s Lowered Whispers with the Trashed Submarine

Gave the Bay a Glow

I Lifted My Head up to the Darkness

Who Was it

That Forgot, to Turn the Lights within Our Bodies, Off

On the Shoulders of the General

That Invisible Kitty, Pounced on the Firing Squad from Before He Was, Still, Living

(The Songs of Sorrows from the Beginning

The Assets Immaterial in the Very End)

These Stanzas of the Poems, Shall Get Beyond What’s Been Destroyed Between You & Me, Sailing, All the Way, into, the, Skies

And so, this is on what’s left, after everything go, BOOM!  What remained, of the love, of the life that’s, gone, what is taken from the examples of these lives, lived………

The Case of Police Receiving the Bribes the Witness Changed His Statement, and Taken in as a Suspect

Money still, makes this world, turn around, UPSIDE, the WRONG way here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The case of the Zhongshan Police Substation’s tipping the bars where sex was sold, the district attorney’s offices found, the patrol officers, Lee and Chen took the bribes in the amount of $50,300 N.T. from the bars for tipping them off about the checks, overlooked the bars for solicitations, the two officers, the middleman, the owner of the pub, a total of twelve individuals were, indicted yesterday, and the D.A.’s Office is asking for the two officers to get severe sentences, with the other officers still under investigations.

The officer who’d left the police forces, Lu wanted to have a lighter sentence, testified on behalf of what the police station officer had done, but at the end of the investigations, he’d turned around completely, changed the confessions he’d already signed from before; the D.A. believed he intended to mislead the investigations, that he was no longer protected under the witness laws, asked the courts to have Lu in custody before the Lunar New Year’s, which was quite rare in the case when the plaintiffs turned, witnesses.

The D.A.’s investigations found that the Caribo Group had “Fair Lady” “Givenchy” and “Mei-Li”, and other bars, of them, “Fair Lady” had the sex trades, the male clients can take the ladies out, and the cost of sex was anywhere from $7,000N.T. to $9,000N.T. each time, and the pub was paid an extra $3,000N.T. for the exit charges.  In order to prevent getting busted for bribing the police, they’d used the misnomers for the books, the employer, Tseng admitted, that the accounts names are related to the public office workers, and the companies’ books, are labeled as such, because the pub turns in the earning records ledger to the police to review over.

The pub owners, the sisters, Tsengs, in order to evade from getting checked, they’d gone through the middleman, Yo, Lu, and Chiu, to offer the bribes to the officers in the precinct, so the officers will record down, “not noting any human trafficking or sex trade instances” on the records.

Yo had paid anywhere from $20,000N.T. to $40,000N.T. to the officers, Tu, Lee, and the backhand, Wu, who are also in custody for other cases they were involved in; in 2014, Lu took over, and received $130,000N.T. in cash in brown paper sack, and, the three major holidays, he’d received $160,000N.T., which he used to bribe the officers in the jurisdiction, Wu and Chen (in custody for another case), and paid the officer, Chen in charge of overseeing the activities of Givenchy and “Mei-Li”, Chen; as Chiu took over for Lu, he’d bribed Chen, Chen, and the backhand man, Chang (in custody for another case).

Lu testified, Tseng handed over the white envelope with four million dollars to Chen, and told Tseng personally, “I took care of the officers in the jurisdiction already!”, Chen demanded not to use the phones to contact, and only contacted through the men who worked in the bars, while Lee, was a younger police academy schoolmate of Security Police Force One, asked Lee to “look after him more”, and that’s how Lee connected him to Wu.

Based off of understanding, when the police came for the checks, Chiu let the ladies without their identification cards to climb the fire escape ladders to the roof, with the rest of the people gathering in the box for the checks, so it looked like there wasn’t any ladies who were accompanying the men as they were drinking.

And so this, is how BAD they can get, when officers of the LAWS, BREAK the laws, and in this case, the incentives are still, money, which showed, how easily, man (humans) fall, when they’re, offered a little extra CASH, they will take it, and go B-A-D, and in this case, the ones who took the bribes, are those who KNEW the laws, officers of the precincts!

The Heart of Shijr, Bringing Warmth to Thousands of Children from Lesser Backgrounds

The kindness that’s shining through right now, off of the Newspapers, translated…

There are, a lot of residents who live in the distant mountain regions in Shijr, Hsinbei City, Liu who originally owned and operated a small diner set up the “Heart & Soul of Shijr”, set up food banks at the local substations, and worked side-by-side with TSMC charitable foundations, and rented the spaces to give to the elderly population who live alone, taking care of residents from ages zero to a hundred, since it’s start up back in 2014, the services offered assistance to over thousands of individuals.

Liu was originally an owner of a restaurant, and by chance, he’d found that there were, a lot of families on the lower end of the socioeconomic status in Shijr, who had troubles, getting a full meal provided to them, he’d called out to the local diners, restaurants, to help provide the meals for these families, at first, the services made the meal deliveries, and later he’d found, that the police department was the first to know about these families in trying times, and so, he’d worked with the Hsinbei City Police Department, at the substation in Shijr, he’d set up the food bank, and when the locals are having a hard time, the stations are able to provide the needed foods, Liu hoped to set up the afterschool program to help the children, and the TMSC Charities found him, and provided the funding for the equipment needed, and the local residents also started donating the foods, the money, the clothes as well, and the foundation sorted through the donated clothes, foods, and related items, and donate them to those in need.

the center that’s set up, for the children to have a place to go when their parents are away, at work…photo courtesy of UDN.com

Liu stated, that the afterschool homework help center’s purpose was to give the children from single-parent, cross-generation families, children who don’t have that much adult attention to go into, so they don’t get into the gangs, or get into contact with the illegal substances, currently, there are about twenty children who are being counseled by the center that he’d helped set up.

Liu stated, that in the future, he is to work even harder, hoping to look after more children in need, so the society can see the foundation’s work, to attract more volunteers who are willing, and able to, offer assistance to those on the lower end of the socioeconomic status, to help them improve their lives for the better.

And so, this, is good work that this man had, started, he’d not just, handed the money to the families in need, instead, he’d given the families, a more, practical sort of help, providing the children from the lesser backgrounds a center to stay in, while the parents worked, so they don’t get involved with the wrong crowds, and go down the wrong paths in life, the foundation also offered the assistance that those on the lower end of the socioeconomic statuses are in need of, with the food banks, set up in the local stations, and this, is what charitable acts are all about, providing the practical help that those in need required, and NOT just soliciting donations of money.

The Most, Unforgettable, Words

Because you’d, spent some time with your own mother, you have, NO regrets, after she’d, died, translated…

“The North Wind Blow/the Snow Falls/Underneath that Lonely Light/Only My Mother………” that folk song came, from the radio, and it’d, roused up the feelings of missing my own mom, along with our very last, conversation.  The lucid memories are like the wind, taking me, to that old mansion, so suddenly.

It was February that year, the weather, a bit, colder, my father-in-law was in critical condition, hospitalized, and, I had another worry, my mother, who’s not, doing at all, that well.  I’d called home during that time, my mom who’s, weakened was always, too drowsy, only spoke a few short words, then, passed out.

One day I received a call from the hired caretaker, said that my mother’s oxygen level was low in her blood, my heart tightened, and I took the high-speed rail, southbound immediately.

The afternoon sunshine, slanted in to the vacant living room, passed through that long hallway, I’d arrived at the bedroom on the first floor, where my mother was, fast, asleep.  I walked to the bed, saw her slender face, the room was filled with the sound of the blood-oxygen machine and her heavy breathing.

I’d called to her light, “Mom, I’m home!”, she’d opened up her eyes, “Why are you home?  Have you eaten yet?”, then, she told me she wanted to get out of bed, and I’d, helped her onto the wheelchair with the homecare nurse, and took her to the living room.

on her, deathbed…

like this??? Artwork from online

My mother’s weakened body can’t sit up straight, she’d told me weakly, that her mouth tasted, bitter, I told the nurse, to get some plum pieces, that was from two weeks ago when I’d come home, it was my mother’s, favorite.  The nurse broke off a small piece to give to her, she’d looked at the nurse, told, “Give some to second eldest too.”  Her words was this surge of warmth, entered into my body, that was my mother’s love for me, I knew she was sharing it because she loved it so.

Not long thereafter, she’d told us she was short of breath, wanted to return back to bed to lie.  So we’d, wheeled her back to her bedroom, put her to bed, then, she fell into a comatose, slurred her speech, until the end.

As I’d lost my father and my eldest sister, they’d not had the opportunities to have a final word with us, and so, my mother’s, “give a piece to second eldest” became something cherished, it was the love overflowing for me from my mother, and it’s, also, something that was, unforgettable, as I’d, remembered my mother since.

And so, this, is on life and death, of how important it is, to BE with, one’s own parents, of how important those moments that you will NEVER get a chance to live again means, after the loved ones, passed on, to leave, NO words of love unsaid, to have, NO regrets, left behind!

Sharing Underneath the Starry Night Skies

A good way, to put that cadence on the past year, and start off fresh, on a, new note for this year!  Translated…

For the New Year’s in the past, we’d, gone by tradition, passed it day after day, gathered at the round table for the New Year’s Eve meals, gone to the relatives’ to wish everybody there a happy New Year, to the hot tourist attractions to visit……….it’s, a holiday, that “gathered” us all up.

But thinking back, that was, more like a, sort of, formality.  And, the protocol of that was, watching T.V., sliding on our cell phones, or, saying the words that don’t show any, real care or concerns.

圖/蛋妹

My ideal New Year’s, is to, REDUCE this sort of a vacant interaction, but with more conversation, communication.  Turn off the T.V., put up those cell phones, on the day like New Year’s, get out of the house, to sort through what’s on our minds.  Go to a place where you see your stars, lifting up your heads, sharing your thoughts with one another.  Everybody sit in a circle with leisure, and take turns, telling about what one gained in this past year, what touched us in the last year, to get rid of those formalities of how we are, supposed to, show our cares and concerns, and truly, listen to what one another is, sharing.  Becoming an audience, also, a part of the group that shared everything.

And so, this, is something that’s, needed, in this day and age, because, we don’t talk with each other in depth regularly, that’s why, we’d become, so, disconnected through the entire year, and, the New Year’s is a good time, to restart that connection, to share with one another, what we’d, endured through during the past year, to find closure to the year before, so we can, start off on another year, on a, clean, slate!

Gnocchi

The translation of the comic strips: “What would happen when you get into fight with noodle?

“Fried noodles”?  Nope.  “Fried Noodles”?  Nope.  Noodle in hot water?  Nope.

“It would become…………gnocchi!”

P.S. the Chinese word for gnocchi means getting under each other’s skins.

Puppy, Rui-Ji, Happy, Chestnut, they’re all, my best friends from the extracurricular back in my high school years, and now, it’d been, over a decade, we are all, split up, some of us, nine-to-fivers, some, taking over family businesses, some head off abroad, but, the group of four, stayed, connected.

No matter what they bump into at work, how stressed out they may be, of their day-to-day, they all need to, rant on in their group, the brothers getting into spats, going out together for drinks, for foods, then, all their worries are, all, away then.

The phrase, “happy to see you” applies perfectly to the four, so, Puppy always stated, that he was going to, use the unfunny jokes that only they understood, to write a song.  They’d not played in a long, long time, don’t know if, they will, reignite that youthful flame, with the cold jokes?

And so, this, is how close the friends you made in your schooling years are to you, you are each other’s emotional support, you guys meet out from time to time, to tell each other the BULLSHITS that happened to you in your separate lives, which works exactly like therapy, and you only needed to, pay for your drinks, and these “therapy sessions” don’t occur in a squarish office, with the lay-down couch and the chair by it!

To Resolve the Issues of Reduced Birthrates, from a Moral Standpoint

The government is now, offering, us, HARD-EARNED, dollars, to POP ‘em out, and yet, do we, want to???  I know I still, don’t and WON’T!  And the government’s, missed the BULL’S EYE on this one, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

To help with the impacts of reduced birth rate, the Executive Department announced its, two-stage plans, to add more assistance money to reproduction of children, and the childcare programs.  It’s just, think on it hard, in recent years, the government thought really hard, spent a lot of its budgets, in making up for the assistance money for birth, setting up the public daycare programs, and yet, there’s, almost, NO noticeable, results; the younger generations, still aren’t, “popping” out the children fast enough.

It’s nothing easy, raising up the young, not just the economic burdens from raising the children, this is not just for a few years’ time; until the children grow up, the parents still, worry, endlessly.  And, relying on the government assistance, comparing that to what’s been put in, it’s, nowhere NEAR, balancing out, naturally, the effects of the assistance programs are, limited.  As the reduced birth rates, compounded with the population aging too fast, returning back to the traditional values of extended families, maybe, you’ll, find the resolves.

And so, why not change a thought, from encouraging the aging parents to be neighbors with their children, or, live close by, so the children can be cared for by one’s own parents, there would NOT be the safety concerns of leaving the young in strangers’ hands.  Although some parents aren’t willing, some worried that there may be displease between the daughters and mothers-in-law, but, you can’t over look those younger generations who are willing, to live in the same neighborhoods as their own, elders.

The government is at wits end on how to increase the birthrates, why not take from the values of families of the traditional agricultural families, and start from the schools, the families, to make it a trend of the society.  And, with the incentives of assistance money, and the public daycare programs, to help the younger generations become, more willing, to have children, that, is the right way to approach this problem.

Yeah uh, this is still, NOT convincing enough, not for me, at least, not just because I already KNOW the results of me, popping my DEAD Emily out, but what this individual saying is still, too idealistic, I mean, we’re, already, on this, PAY-AS-You-Go program of social security, we’re, currently paying into the retirement funds, that WE can’t even, get our hands out, because by the time we reach sixty-five, wow, the money’s RUN out, and, the debts just keep on rolling, rolling, rolling on down, making it HARDER, for future generations to come, and, this claim of the government’s we want you to have MORE babies, to INCREASE manpower for the future just isn’t, sound enough, I mean, even IF the government provides for your young’s (however many you have, how the HECK should I know?) education, their formulas, diapers, etc., etc., etc., etc., and you get an extra couple of thousand dollars for your kiddies’ birthdays, is that enough, for you, to WANT to have children?  I mean, do you KNOW how much heart, how much mind, how much time, AND not to mention, stress, CARES, goes into, bringing up a child?  Yeah, so, take THAT, you STUPID government!

Democracy Based off of the Laws, as Well as the People Too

The dissection of how people mistook DICTATORSHIP for DEMOCRACY here!  Commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

For these past few months, the politics from the other side of the Pacific developed like the reality shows of Hollywood.  Before January 6th, the most talented scriptwriters may not ever even be able to imagine the climax of how the people took over Capitol Hill.  And even as Biden took office, the sequel to “How American Fell”, the sequel may start filming soon.

In our memories, the American democracy had been a protocol of all democratic governments.  The American can hold their heads up high, tell the world, “Take from our example!”, and the Taiwanese politicians, scholars, or the talk show hosts, whenever they spoke on democracy, the answer is always: take after them!  Popular votes for the presidential elections, and the presidents can only serve two terms, with a bipartisanship legislative body, focusing on human rights.  In this standards, the previous heads of states, Chiang Kai-Shek and Chiang Ching-Kuo would receive “Fs”.

The U.S. is a first democracy that’s written its own constitution, for the over two hundred years since the beginning of the country, it had, continually, progressed!  And yet, there are, so many holes in the system.  First, the U.S. relied on the slaves of Africa, slain the natives (the war with the Indians lasted up to three hundred years on end), and, taking over Mexico, so the WHITES have everything they need.  Undeniable though, the leaderships from the elections, has its pros.  There were, surely, many outstanding heads of the states, even as the voters selected a mediocre president, the three branches were able to, even things out, so the president knew his, limits.

And yet, this system was based off of ruling by the people; with the prerequisite of the man in the seat willing to follow the rules.  But, Trump didn’t buy it, and that was when the world finally realized, that the American democracy WAS, a house of cards, with the rules set up, and those who are law-abiding, following them.  Like the inaugural address of Biden, which he’d stated, “the American democracy is something fragile AND precious!”

In fighting to gain power, the American court systems showed its independent from the legislative and the executive branches, with the mainstream media, all, keeping their guards up.  And yet, Trump was able to, split the States up just seventy-seven days after the election, holding the Republic legislators hostage, spreading the false news of how Biden had cheated in the elections.  He will continue to hold the Republican Party hostage.

The Yale History Professor, Schneider in his “American Abyss”, pointed out, that Trump had used many lies to sway the public, like how those who’d supported Hitler before he came to power.  And, after the truth was known, he worried, that American is on the verge of getting taken over by Fascism.  This sort of an end-of-the world belief, is prevalent, in the European and American media like CNN and the New York Times, a Pulitzer writer published the book, “The Sunset of Democracy” just last year.

Or maybe, a decade from now, we will find, that we’d bore witness to—the result that not everybody will feel glad over the decline of “Pax Americana”.  From how Athens was defeated by Sparta, how many democracies had been, laid, to rest, which showed, how democracy IS not the way to keep a nation going on forever, and so, how can the U.S. be the exception of that?

Looking at the U.S. now, think about Taiwan’s past, as well as its future too.  Thanks to the hard work of the DDP’s blackening, making Chiang Kai-Shek the most infamous evil in our history.  And yet, even the American democracy can become so damaged because of just one man, what reasons have we believe, that if Chiang took the gold after being defeated by China and ran off, or how the two former presidents decided to have the popular votes for presidents, the democracy of this island can continue to date?  Chiang’s rule may NOT be fitting to today’s standards, but, his ruling over the people, had made us into, who we currently, are.

He was the only one who can control the nationalist army, to fight against Mao, he’d also, put everything in education, as well as constructing the country too, based off of the book by the Harvard scholar, Tao’s “Chiang Kai-Shek’ and the Fight for Modern China”, Chiang WAS, the cornerstone of Taiwanese democracy.

“Everything has its time”.  That was, a famous line out of the Bible.  This is so with democracy too, and we can, only, follow this path onward.  The three-legged cat democracy is way more fragile compared to the American democracy, with the politicians, the talk show hosts spreading the wayward thoughts, there’s no balancing of power under Tsai’s rule.  Comparing us to Burma, we are, somehow, a richer society, that found its roots in the authoritarian eras, with the basis of implementing democracy.  Those who are singing those songs of reforms should think: how’s the outlook for the prematurely birthed, Taiwanese, democracy?

And so, this, is still how the government, ruled by Tsai (the president by the “majority”, because the majority of us who are against her rule, we don’t go to the polls?) is headed towards, and she’s still, wearing that HALO of DEMOCRACY (demoCRAZY is more like it!), and ruling this country like she OWNS it, and the people here, are just, way too, FUCKING (so???) blind to see it, and we have only ONE way to go in this country, D-O-W-N!

But hey, look on the bright SIDE, when this god DAMN country finally HIT the ROCK HARD bottom, it then has no other places to go, but U-P!  So yeah, how’s that for dissection…

Peeping, Through, the Ice Caves

Thoughts of the encounters the writer’s had in Antarctica, translated…

“Using a pipe to see the skies”, this ancient phrase is used to describe the shortsightedness of some, or the humbling of the speaker.

Using a tiny bamboo pipe, looking through the tiny hole of that pipe, seeing anything toward the other end, from the ratios of mathematics, it doesn’t, fit correctly.  The objects are way too huge, the hole, too tiny, how can you see the whole picture?  But, think on it using a different angle, the concept of “quality”, you can see the corner of that mountain so green, which is, enough, to lift our, spirits!

taken by the writer…

Following the eyes of the photographers, the artists, from the hole in the ice caves, to see the views that the exploration ships saw from a hundred odd years ago, it surely was, moving, and, it’s, comparable to seeing the starry nights from million years ago from the lens of the telescope!

And so, this, is how we’re all, linked to our separate, and collective pasts, no matter how hard we tried to deny it, because, we’re, still all here, sharing this, common environment, and maybe, what you see is not, exactly what I see, because we have, different perspectives, different interpretations of things we encounter in the world, but that, is how the experiences are, common, and different, at the, same time.

The Companion Study Buddies of College Years, Hand-in-Hand, Helping the Children in the Distant-Regions

A story of hope, something we’re, lacking in this day and age now, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

For the past weeks, it’d been, very cold here in Taiwan, but, there was something heartwarming in Taichung worth mentioning.

This was started by the students of Fengjia University.  The students were preparing for the finals week, with the temperatures dropping down, and they’d, made the time, to go to the mountains of over 2,000 meter above sea level to bring the kids studying in the elementary schools up in the mountains to the cities, to experience life in the cities, and university life, opening up the eyes of these young elementary school age children.

Lishan is 160 kilometers away from the Fengjia University it’s the largest, least densely populated, with a large area location in the city’s districts, the land area ranked fourth, and there are only about 10,904 people who live there locally.  From before, when the only road was the crosspath of the locale, but since the earth quake of September 21st, the foundations of the entire passage had been severed off sectionally.  And currently, there were the three opening times for the locals of Lishan to go in and out.

“Companionships from University, Bringing Kindness to the Distant Regions” is a social responsibility project set up by the Fengjia University, two years ago, the program started helping with the transportation of elderly people in Lishan to the hospital, and set up the work stations in the local communities.  In the field researches that the university conducted, they’d found, that the greater Lishan Region had the “ten days on, four days off” scheduling that was very unique in Taiwan.  And so, the teachers of the schools in Lishan all climbed up the mountains to give the lessons, and because of the way being too far off, the schools and the parents decided, that the teachers should hike up the mountains, teach for ten days, then, hike back down the mountains, have four days off, and yet, the parents of the area mostly worked in farming, and for the four days off (usually from Friday to Monday), the parents couldn’t find the time to watch over their own young, nor could they keep track of where their children are, and it’d, caused the students to not have anything constructive to do, exposed in the dangerous conditions, and causing the troubles for the communities, as well as the families too.

The Fenjia Team after discussing with the local communities and the church, they’d decided to combine the Hoping Elementary, the local church, the Wenhwa Health Station, as well as other parties, pushed forth the “Work-Stay program”, inviting the college age students to accompany the children in Lishan afterschool, and, as the teachers take their time off and hiked down the mountains, the college students would, hike up to stay and keep the children company, to use the group activities, and the character education courses, to guide the students to behave themselves right.  While the tribal churches would, provide the college students with the room and board programs, and the students get to have a firsthand experience of the lacking of the distant regions at the same time.  Last week, this group of college students hosted a fundraising for this group of children in the Lishan Elementary School to come down the mountains for a trip, hosting the two days one night, city and university experience, and found the enterprises that will help with the room and board of these children during the time.

In the company of the college students, the children got to experience the city for the very first time in their lives.  They’d visited the Natural Sciences Museum, the Opera House, the Fengjia University campus, as well as the Taichung city hall too, and at the same time, the kids had a steak lunch with the city councilpersons.  This sort of a city tours, other than immersing the children into life in the big city, to experience different ways of life than what they are accustomed to, it’d also given the kids a better understanding of their environments, as well as giving them a deeper understanding of the occupations available to them too.  The next stage, we’re thinking of how to lead the college students into the tribes to conduct the field researches, and the community designs, using the university as a base, to push forth the revitalization of the tribal regions.

There are so many needs from the distant regions in Taiwan, that the local governments can’t look after on their own.  We hope, that in the near futures, there would be, more college instructors who are willing and able, to go to the distant regions, to accompany the children, to utilize the passions of the college students, and the energies, to open up the roads of these distant regions, to instill hope, in these, tribal areas.

And so, this, is a great program that the university had, started up, and the key is to make it last long-term, that it won’t be just for three minutes, until the heats cooled down, it’s a great plan, and, the steps to making this work is slowly taking place, and we need more people who are, willing and able, to give to the children living in these, distant regions.
