黑洞 A Cynic's Dictionary of Relativity

Far, far away in the galaxy the black hole exists... my once sweet little boy has also gone into the adolescence black ‘whole’ and I cannot wait for him to emerge from the other end.  I might have signed up for more than I could fulfill, the event horizon is cluttering up.  I was writing this post while traveling in Ho Chi Minh City, Phnom Penh, Shenzhen and New Delhi for work, my mind continued to dwell in Tokyo where the LK clan spent our winter vacation, warping of space-time.

V正值難搞青春期, 我應老朋友M邀約加入慈善基金會董事, 工作則依然忙得不可開交想想自己是否過份貪心, 好好扮演一個角色已不易, 怎能三頭六臂面面俱到?

危轉機 Farce and Hamartia

明明老了不認老, 頻頻提當年勇, 或從頭到腳堆砌學生時代負擔不起, 今時今日也未必適合自己等等時尚名牌, 大抵是中年危機最表層症狀; 再深入, 便是條條大哉問… 近來吾兒青春期發酵, 一窩子misfits摔門互吼, 突覺前陣子職場種種不過小巫見大巫.  不是完全無理解善意, 頂頭上司從書架找出本Raising Boys塞給我, 前兩日春分, 團隊彩印我喜歡的Botticelli名畫春天, 悄悄懸掛於辦工室正牆逗我會心微笑 :)

With a Teenage Rex in the house, our household of midlife crisis vs. adolescence has raised stress to the level of art.  The modern art of chaos, parody… all crumble into a farce.  I needed much self helps in the form of writing and reminiscing our winter retreat in Tokyo.  Sizzling crabs on crackling charcoal and sake fused snapper stew.  I told you, I am taking the 'comfort' of comfort food very literally.
於東京過新曆年未曾書寫, 近幾年頻赴東京, 熟悉有份安寧, 是老朋友的默契老情人的窩心.

語言和公約數 Las Palabras de Amor

“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”
_____ Mark Twain

I executed a corporate order on the Friday post Valentine.  It hurt deeply on multiple facets.  I found solace within a lovely bouquet arranged by the boys.  Mr. LK picked me camellia blossoms from our backyard and Little V drew me the sweetest note.  Still, not sure how I am ever going to get over this, perhaps only time will tell.  I wish I could spare you the pain, the confusion yet I failed miserably, as a leader of the team.  I am sorry beyond words.
情人節當天公司舉辦派對分豬肉似的頒獎, 頂頭上司進我辦公室低聲說這次你來我無需在場, 而後人事部召我密談, 隔天我排除所有人類的情緒情感, 裁去團隊共事四年的年青設計師莎拉.

偽裝 Miss LK's Rhapsody 10th Anniversary

2018行色匆匆, 幾項富挑戰性的企劃案終究夭折.  創新改革的口號喊得震天價響, 但見滿朝落魄皇孫, 逃難不忘穿金戴銀, 左擁右抱, 架子端得挺好, 至美來句莎翁名句 One can smile and smile and still be a villain… 過節前趕赴上海商旅, 團隊捉襟見肘, 烏雲罩頂, 收假歸來立召密談, 我不殺伯仁, 伯仁因我而死.
My life is governed by duality as a blood type AB, the newer, more modern sanguine family prone to diseases yet mercurial, adaptable with a nimble intelligence.  While I titled in Chinese this post camouflage or the great pretender(what?), the irony is, I am searching for kindness within and outward, my true resolution for 2019.

你始終在我心底 You’re My Best Friend

November is Little V's birth month and the year end reunion with old friends including revival of my passion for the rock band Queen with the biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.  M stopped by San Francisco for a meeting and we splurged at Eight Tables by George Chen.  It was a heartwarming antidote to the soul crushing week at work.
Song pairing:  You're My Best Friend
"Ooh you make me live
Whatever this world can give to me…"
While Mercury's powerful vocal floors any audience, I admire how John Deacon balances tempo, beat and rhythm into one lively musicality.
