On the 5th day of Chinese New Year Festival, it’s believed that the gods of prosperity come down from the heavens. Therefore, it’s the best day of the year to open new businesses.
Today, as promised, I launched a Chinese mirror website, 唱不完的詩歌: 中英雙語短詩網誌, putting NeverEnding Story on the literary map of “Cultural China,” which has been promoted by Tu Weiming, Research Professor and Senior Fellow of Asia Center at Harvard University, who authored "Cultural China: The Periphery as the Center," Daedalus, Vol. 134, No. 4, Fall, 2005, pp. 145-167.
And one more piece of good news. Poetry Daily, which is edited by TheJoyOTL, just became the fifth member in the list of e-papers that reprint the haiku and tanka published on NeverEnding Story. For more information, see Hot News: Haiku/Tanka Reprinted in Four E-Papers.
These two pieces of good news are my Valentine gifts to all poetry lovers.
New Year's sunlight
the scent of roses
(note: 唱不完的詩歌 literally means reciting endless lines of poetry)
