“Even though god has forgotten to draw the curtain from the window of my eyes, I will live everyday without fear; because the world is just next to me!” This is the lyrics of a song, sung by a visually impaired Taiwanese singer, and has touched many hearts.
In Kwangxi, China, a haunch back old lady has been guiding his husband with a bamboo stick for 30 years. This loving old couple has been married for 55 years. They are childless and lived on farming. In 1985, the man succumbed to eye disease and was blind. From that day onwards, his wife has been holding his hand via a bamboo stick, telling him in details what she saw along the way, the sceneries and happenings.
What I know for sure
Read a book by Oprah Winfrey “What I know For Sure”. Love to share her statements that ring a bell. “You have the choice for this very moment – the only moment you have for certain. I hope you aren’t so wrapped up in nonessential stuff that you forget to really enjoy yourself – because this moment is about to be over. I hope you’ll look back and remember today as the day you decided to make very one count, to relish each hour as if there would never be another.” I know you knew already, treat it as a reminder.
Quote on Living
Martin Heidegger: “Once we realized at some point in time we will no longer be, we gain some insight into what it means to exist.”
