http://www.nature.com/news/2006/060213/full/060213-9.html I got this interesting article this morning, a science article about our unconscious brain. The authors claimed that we tend to make a better decision if we go with our gut! This is so true to me. The more I calculate, the worse it truns out. I guess the more I mulled over one thing, the more I see the detail and lost the BIG PICTURE at the same time(as the article mentioned). I have a habit that I call it "incubate a idea". Everytime I have a new idea or a difficulty, I sit them aside. Think of them once a while, a little bit, not too much. I "incubate" them. It might be take a few days or a few weeks and the resolution pop out without my expectation. Always when I was taking a shower. I guess the higher water temperture help hatching the egg "EUKARI".
Feb.14th, Valentine's day. Don't let the commercials fool you. Also, don't let the busy work blind your mind. If you have someone to say "Happy Valentine's Day" that's great! If you don't, it's OK. RECYCLE your feeling. The USPS demonstrated how the process will make us SOAR!
Auburn, a college town, nothing special but everything just fit well. Students like to have party, gathering together and drink beers of course. Party is not a big deal as you would imagine in the big city like crazy Taipei night. Party here are based on three elements. BEERS, DRINKING BEERS and Talk. A little bit dispointed when I first realized this is the way "the party" goes, especially I knew nobody when I just got here, also, I am not a big fan of BEERS. You got to forgive me here, we Asians just don't have that much enzyme to digest these liquid. However, after couple semesters, I started to enjoy the party, the friendship, the gussips, the BEERS for sure. I like beers, announced to the public loud :P. This picture were taken from the last big party in my old house. Me and Brian cook tons of food and people brought lots of beers. It was a sweet party. And Lynn and Mike (this picture) were the mentors of my party life : )
Mr. Children is a band, a man, a kid, a Peter Pan, a attitude, a philosophy, a life style, a way we call ourself! Mr. Children, Miss Children...They like to hang out togeter, they have their smooth style when they talk. I like it, so I listen carefully, tilt my head and use a kind of slow attitude. I like to talk to kids, listen to them, understand their problem, help them and help myself. Remind those old memories I had,funny or serious, refresh those kid attitude I ever had- Naive and Pure. I like to go back to revisit them, double check I am still in that shape, gaining power and confidenece to move on. That's why I become a Mr. Children, then turn into Or-Gi-San Children soon, very soon : )

The Red Envelope means good luck for Chinese people. In the lunar new year(the biggest festival in Chinese society and Taiwanese society), parents or elder people give these red envelope to kids and wish them have a good luck for the coming year. Every kids knows that red envelope is great, because there are money in there usually but not always. Fortunately, my parents always put money in there. Money means satisfied desire. I know that when I were very young, and of course I know the feeling to have new toy. There was one year, I told my father that I want to use all my red envelope money to buy a pair of binoculars, a really good one. They asked for $700 us dollars. I was sick for that one for a long time. However, my total "trophy" from my new year red envelpoe was $350. I told my father with a deep honest eyes, and said I really want this pair of binoculars. I want to use this pair for my bird research. I want to be a ornithologist. "Would you pay another half price for me?" My father say yes without a blink. I had this pair of binocular for 11 years right now. He is my best friend in the field. Although there is still long way to become a good ornithologist. I carried this good luck binocular with me. No fear on my way to PhD.
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
