Devil in the house

You brought a devil into the house
It wants to leave
And takes your flesh

So just let it go

Teach yourself and your offspring well
So that none would not be fooled by the devil

Exercise your discipline
To await the devil to destroy itself

If you want to lure it back
Better yourself is the only way

Dream this morning about Hong Kong

I slept inside a standing shower room, with my body balanced by my backs and legs against the plastic walls.

Afterwards I went to a laundry shop, which charged me 10761 HKD for 4 pieces of cloth. (It usually costs me about 30 to 50 HKU for a weeks’ worth of laundry.)

The guest house

Filed under: Imaginary,Real — liyiwei @ 4:30 am

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

by Jellaludin Rumi, translation by Coleman Barks

Ghost in the Shell

There is a peculiar kind of pleasure for senior people to reminisce their junior experiences, as I discovered after getting older.

The first trailer closely matches the original anime, which is also available on Netflix.

Like many contemporary Japanese anime, the story can be confusing for people not familiar with the genre. But it seems quite clear from the second trailer, and different from the original story.

Race can be a sensitive issue for Hollywood, but watch how the Japanese react to the casting of this movie. This should be no surprise for people who understand the Japanese culture in general.

Quantum ideas

Elusive ideas
Measured by expressions
Collapsed from possibilities

Only the second applies to me (unless hoodie is counted as “robe”) 🙂

To know if you are a real angel
Visit hell
And see if you can still fly

The lone dragon
Twitches a finger
Hurts a throng
