Wire lanterns overhead
casting a flourescent glare
the light cut by a chop/chop/chop of spinning fan
a cold feeling
the greater the path
the greater the call
the greater the quest
onwards. where's my pen?
where's my boots?
There was a pretty ferocious storm a couple days ago in Hong Kong that damaged some of the infrastructure up on Mount Davis. The internet was down due to a lightning strike and water went off for a while. That's fine, yesterday I went to down to HK Island and worked from Pacific Coffee. I had to hurry to grab the shuttle down the mountain and didn't get my morning walk/run in, so I went around 11PM when I came back until I found a well lit place to jog back and forth on the mountain, and I came back at midnight.
I'm sweaty, exhausted, and I think - oh, I hope the water's back on... I should've checked...
I went to the shower, turned the nob, and... the water started. Good.
But no hot water for some reason. And it was quite cold.
At first I flinch and tense up a little bit as I step into the water, and then I think - why should I flinch? Mind over matter. This will be cold,. and I'll enjoy it anyways.
Tell your significant other "honey I'm sorry, but Kung Fu is more important that your fathers funeral, and if you don't get out of my way I'm gonna karate chop you in the neck." and watch some Kung Fu Movies!
