Normally, I don't bring a personal e-mail to illustrate my points of view. However, I think that this corresponding e-mail between myself and my best friends is relevant and it speaks out my minds and deep concerns regarding my country.
Thanks for the given info... Personally, I feel rather bitter about this... Let me describe to you this way;
I love dogs... I always do... I admire its personality and funny behaviors since they are puppy until they are senile... One behavior in puppy makes me laugh all the time but, with this metaphoric implication, I couldn't smile anymore.... That behavior is chasing and biting its own tail....
In this circle, it took almost 15 years for "this puppy" to regain its funny behavior.... I'm wondering that there will be another chasing and biting its own very tail again.... and, I'm also wondering that whether or not this puppy can be a dog.... :)
This time, the puppy is really lucky... It has the owner whose loves him so much and the puppy loves him tremendously as well.... However, as a matter of fact, time kills everyone--- you, me and everyone....
Another wonder of mine is that; what's going to happen next time to the puppy when it doesn't have his owner anymore?....
This is an inevitable fact that everyone will face; the cruelty of time.... Are we prepared for that?
Don't be serious... It's just a simple, metaphoric story and just a few critical, realistic questions which our children must answer....
Those questions may not be our business to think about, we can live comfortably in our virtual reality anyway with or without the answers.
Miss you guys always, XXXX ------------------------------------------------------------
That's all of the content of the e-mail.
Lastly, for your information, I would not like to hear any of your opinions about it nor would like to influence on your thoughts..... I'm posting this not because am I looking for someone on my side or another way around....
It's a personal thought from an independent individual and about sharing his concerns to his friends....
================================= Note: My life has been intertwined with works and many others. New responsibility has emerged, resulting less and less time for my ordinary life. Although, a love to write is still intact... But having less time is related to having less imagination.... Therefore, I could not come up with new writings for quite some times.
It might be a good time for me to leave this forum for moment.... Please take it as Mr. A.T. is having a sabbactatical leave or something like that....
As noted above, my love to write is still the same... and will not be changed. Sometimes somehow, I hope I could come back and give some thoughts in this blog once more.
Cheers, Mr. A.T. June 6th, 2008
My pen-name in Pantip is amatuer translator. Actually, I'm a lousy translator with lame translation. My pen-name is somewhat misleading, I have no background in linguistics what-so-ever. Anyway I love to read, write and communicate with people...
Reading is my most favorite hobby. I read everything from shopping bags to articles in theoretical physics. I do research and teaching for my living. So, reading, writing, thinking and doing research works are my everyday routine.
I would like to define myself as a person who is accepting new ideas and adopting those into my way of life.
I believe in power of knowledge/education. I think every society can be a better society with knowledge. Ignorance can be dispelled by it. Humanity can live sustainably and harmoniously with each other along with its biosphere with understandings in the nature surrounding it.
Apart from my philosophical thoughts reflecting who I am, I can tell you something I like or love in particular;
I love dogs.... Particularly, labradore retrievers.... One day, I would like to spend my time and life with them as a big part of my family.
Zhuge Liang is my hero. With his wisdom and faithfulness, he led a tiny army to a mighty and formidable kingdom. He left his humble residence with a hope to come back. But, sadly, he had never returned and died far far away from home in a horse carriage in a battle field. If I could choose where I would, I would say where-ever my lovely wife was nearby.
I value happiness and my family as my first priority. My profession and my philosophy come in the second. Pursuit in wealth has never been in my desire.
I'm glad to be your friend, and look forward to seeing you around krub.
