Joy freed from the bond of earth's slumber
rushes into numberless leaves
and dances in the air for a day.
Rabindranath Tagore




Happy birthday to the sweet April child iza!




























The artwork was inspired by Jessica Kerbawy's crayon art and 
was done in the summer of 2012 by iza ... 
It seems a nice match with Marie et Rose-Alice's robe Floria.

靜夜。詩。










您說自己像Mr. Bean, 一樣無聊。我就是喜歡, 您這樣。


你常常作呀作, 你, 規則規範亦是遊戲。你設計的玩意, 很難明, 有時又很無聊。這次, 「亂作一詩」遊戲容易明白。選首詩, 然後每字逐一配成詞, 串連新字, 詩成 ...... 你對平仄之類還沒有概念, 通通亂寫, 好玩是了。


您借用李白: 靜夜思, 胡亂編成一個女孩出嫁前一夜的故事。一個夜晚。看起來, 居然有點像首詩。


原文:

李白: 靜夜思

床前明月光
疑是地上霜
舉頭望明月
低頭思故鄉


>; 前>; 明>; 月>; 光> ...... ......


You love improvisation. You stretch rules of old games and create new versions ... but often too complicated. You recompose pieces of music with techniques you lately acquired ... but often too "edgy". You remix fairy tales and make strange stories ... sometimes they are too absurd. However, I love your utter senselessness.


This time, you rewrote a poem. Based on 靜夜思 ( black verses ), you derived new words from every single word, then linked all "unrelated" words together to form new verses. Synthesized a new piece of poem ( red verses ). You told me this was about the night before a girl's wedding. One shouldn't take the poem serious ... It's simply doodling. A doodle on all unconnected parts. An incubation.







今年, 學校改革, 一至四年級沒有測試沒有考試。這兩年( P.3-4 )也許是您上小學以後唯一的兩年。珍貴非常。玩多點。

最近, 我們看了很多電影。我們一起看國際電影節的日子, 不遠。你終於坐定定。


Iza's school is undergoing a reform on assessment. From this September, there won't be any exams or tests for P1 - P4 students ... We shall enjoy these 2 luxurious years, your P3-4, with the joy of being silly. And, flood with fun.

A little piece of writing on a rainy day with her beloved kindergarten teachers, written by iza in 2010 Summer.
Published lately on her primary school website.

Children are encouraged to submit their writings. No matter it's good or not, every child has an equal chance to be selected. Their works are drawn randomly. Iza is fortunate to have writings published for a few times. I was moved when I saw this piece ... not because it was eventually published after being submitted for more than a year ... it's the love and the attachment sprouts from the 3 years ( the years of kindergarten, her early years ).

稿,都有同等機會被抽中多麼好, 只是3年誼, 不只珍貴

I try to do the translation ... please be excused as I'm not doing it well.


"July 21 (2010) Rainy day

That day, I went to Disneyland with three of my kindergarten teachers. I love very much my K1 class teacher, Miss Hung. She is gentle. My K2 teacher Miss Chung is playful. We love to make fun with each other. Miss Chan, my K3 teacher, is funny. She loves to joke.

Although the weather was not good, we decided to continue our date because we had planned this for a long time. Miss Hung's umbrella could not uptake the rain loads, it broke. Therefore, she bought a new umbrella in a disney store. We were all surprised that it was so expensive. It costed HK 150. The rain was really heavy, though I had my raincoat on, I was all wet. However, I loved to play in the rain.

When we rode on the roller coaster, I was so scared that I closed my eyes and pretended I had fallen asleep. I heard the people crying, so loudly. We also got onto a rotating coffee cup, it whirled so fast that we almost spun out of it. However, it was sad that typhoon signal number 3 was hoisted at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. All outdoor facilities were closed. I could not ride on the Mary-go-round which I love most. I was very upset. I am looking forward to the next dating with my teachers!"

BALI 2




















Collaging. In hotel room.

Don't know the name of this plant but it's everywhere around the south of Bali island. We were so curious on this thing. As told by a hotel staff, when the fruit is still green, it tastes like cucumber, which is soft and spongy. When it turns brown, the spongy interior will dry up and "fiberize" into "cotton" like filaments, which is commonly used for making pillow and mattress. He picked 4 pieces from a tree and sent us as a gift. So kind he was.

... i'm sad ... i have stopped her drawing class ...
... not sure it's a right decision ...
... for quite some time ... she had struggles and emotions during classes ...
... yes ... she is stubborn ... and difficult to handle ...
... i'm always afraid ... in intense stress ... that she's a torture to her teacher(s) ...






... i appreciate every effort her teacher made ...
... thanks ...
