The world turns all around, and time is changing but nothing to be blamed. We have limited control to life. Day after day, we have tasted pain, anger, sadness or happiness in different stages. Our lives are similarly short; but if we embrace impermanence and work with it, life could be a joy. Perhaps, we could appreciate the painful beauty gently passing by with appreciation as a unique lesson. – Evan Leung 2017
