“If all the year were playing holidays/To sport would be as tedious as to work.” --Shakespeare
[Note: In case anyone is wondering how things our going for Yong eight months after our marriage, here is an essay she wrote for her ESL class about her life in the west so far....Peter]
Over on the Forum side of CLM, there's a wonderful thread that was written by Melcyan and it's called 'Don't Treat Me Better Than Dog'. Well, why not? The picture shown here is that of a woman in Fujian province who caught her boyfriend being unfaithful. Of course, it made national TV here in China.
What could be better than snuggling up on a couch and reading a good book at Christmas time? Well, I genuinely believe that there's nothing wrong with that picture. In truth, there have been times when I preferred being alone to giving up my solitude for anybody. However, times have changed, and I have certainly changed with age—for better or for worse, I can't really say. What I can truly say is that if I could, I would spend this holiday season in a more enjoyable setting.
Recently a new member posted a thread on the Forum in which he expressed concerns on a number of items, but specifically was concerned that he had messaged one member twice and so far not received a reply. He originally sent it as a letter to CLM, but we suggested he post a thread in order to get a broader range of responses. This blog is my in response to that thread, which you can find here:
So Yong wanted flowers. Usually this is one of her easier requests of her life in the West to fulfill. Certainly much easier than her request for “real” Chinese food, which requires a seventy-mile trip to Chicago’s Chinatown.
When Bob Dylan wrote 'The times they are a changin', I really don't think he knew how drastically they would.
Not too long ago we received a letter from a “member” of CLM complaining about behavior of his Chinese “wife”, also a member, while they were in the process of obtaining a visa for her to move to the USA to live with him. I admit that I might have had some sympathy for this person had his approach been different, but the approach basically set me off. I am interested in readers’ thoughts on how you might have handled the situation differently. Thanks for any comments.
