Sometime towards the end of every year, I try to write a poem to reflect and to flip the page to the new year. So, every year, I usually write a single English poem. But this year, somehow I felt compelled to write two, one primary poem in English, and a supplemental one in Chinese. May God bless all with opportunities, wisdom, peace, and lots of love. And my comrades, families, friends and all, most of all, God bless you with the sweet freedom you deserve.
The recent events around the world showed me one thing – some people can make simple things ridiculously complex and ultimately fail, while fewer other people, a select few, are able to make complex things ridiculously simple and succeed.

Do you have a lot of information, knowledge and wisdom that others out there may benefit from, but perhaps feel just a tad left out somehow? Don’t worry, the world is so rapidly evolving with players going through ups and downs, you will have no lack of opportunities to invent and share great outcomes of your own.
