Dear classmates of linichen.net, how’s everybody?!
Today happens to be linichen.net’s birthday. Ariel comes bearing her special congratulations ~ Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday!! Happy Birthday!!! While Ariel’s castle might be an invisible castle, and each brick and shingle exist only in an imaginary space, I do concretely feel the warmth that comes from your protection……*_*
As everybody knows, these months I have been busy filming “They kiss again”. My life is once again completely tied up with these “family members”. Together we speculated: Can this classic tale, with its light comedic storyline, take the audience to a level of deeper reflection? Maybe even effect positive and meaningful change to the values of society? Or perhaps, from the stance of promoting local tourism in Taiwan, can we incorporate into the storyline all of the beauty gathered from the four corners of this land; or its famous specialties so full of local flavors; its culture and its people? Can we maximize the value and influence of the film? I think that to maintain the original grass root support for the film, to incorporate even greater publicity resources than for part one, to reflect the questions worthy of public debate, is where our mission lies.
> 最近依晨不斷被自己的親生媽咪和弟弟取笑愈來愈像“老人”了，不過對於這樣的稱呼我可是欣然接受的喲！因為我開始奉行「有機、養生、環保」的生活了。乍聽之下，這幾個形容詞實在令人卻步，總覺得是很難實行的那種生活態度，而其實一開始我也搞不大清楚它們真正的定義與實行的必要性，直到經歷了這大半年來全球暖化、世界各地氣候遽變的異象，又在美國看到了當地人民早已習慣的環保、樂活(LOHAS)之生活方式，再加上看了一些相關議題的電影和書籍，讓我開始思考身為台灣人的一份子，甚至地球人的一份子，究竟我們應當做些什麼？ Recently, Ariel was mocked endlessly by her own mommy and brother for acting more and more like an “old folk”. I gladly accept this moniker! For I am beginning to practice an “organic, health preserving, conservationist” lifestyle. At first blush, these adjectives seem daunting. Can these ideals be practical? In the beginning, I wasn’t sure of the true meaning and necessity for it either. Not until the experience this past half year with global warming and the strange weather phenomena in various parts of the world; not until seeing people in the US already practice a lifestyle of conservation and LOHAS; not until reading books and watching movies on the subject, did I start questioning my responsibilities as a Taiwanese and as a citizen of the world. What must we do?
It all sounds too serious, like a humorless and remote subject. The truth is this is an urgent subject that affects the wellbeing of everyone! If the environment that sustains us is no longer friendly; when the beloved him (her) next to you, your best friend, naughty Yafu and Little Flower (pets ok….^^); when the career that you are so proud of (or just a job to pass time by?!); when your so-so health, or the irresistible Wii and online games, or chocolate cake, or unforgettable must see TV programs…. etc, etc; when all that we take for granted become endangered or might disappear, will we only then awaken to what should have been our responsibilities all along? I cherish the little facts of life, the little details that move us. To preserve these things, to ensure that our beloved ones yet to come might still experience the same beauty that moves us, I think that we must act now. We must encourage others to act in a positive, meaningful manner towards this patch of land. Right?! (Sounds too much like old folks?!)
Let us all go for it!! (Our dreams are not that far off, but not that close by either…:)
