  Is there a vehicle that allows us to ride over the threshold of childhood?

  The sunshine is spreading on the desk, and the hut of soul will sure be light and spacious, too.

  The old house has years of wisdom that lies in every person and every scenery.

  What is sublated is emptiness and what is left is fullness. Days in the old house do exist.

  The old house has long been out of repair with dark green moss covering the mottled walls. Inside the serene and peaceful old house, has your memory got deserted?

  When I was stilla young girl, was I also sitting in the courtyard with partners, playing those old games?

  During the simple journey of our life, there are some things with which we have endless affinity, such as hometown and old houses.

  The old house is a tender painting. The chipping-off walls, decadent carved beams, concave and convex quartzite, pragmatic and heavy wooden doors, layers of gray tiles, giant red lanterns, the lazy cat sleeping at the foot of the wall, and the elderly faltering in the old house, children chasing and playing are all outlined and depicted in our minds with a heavy pen...

  The old house is still there with the vicissitudes accumulated of those days piling up in the walls and the wounds of those who experienced wind and rain putting on the forehead; the old house still exists with those giant red couplets engraved the bumper harvest posted on the door frame and the childish sound in the old yard echoing; the old house still exists with leisured and steady people playing chess and industrious and frugal bread winner living a life leisurely; the old house still exists and this is where we grew up, with our memory existing in the gray beams of the old house and the smoke-blackened stove... In the warm sunshine, there are endless serenity and mystery in the old house, rising, circling, dancing... However, as we grow and get away, the shadow of the old house fades little by little through time, like smoke, like fog.     

  Fortunately, there is a container of time--camera, with which we can hold all of our memory and turn it into history that can be treasured. When we fail to seize the time, we can stretch out our hands to seize the things nearest to us-- remain the old house with image.

  When your vulnerable nerves become pale and weak in the noise, will you also think of the childhood and think of the old house; when seeing the old house, will the knot that is accumulated for a long time in your mind and still remains unresolved be also stretched and ironed out?
