Of Symbols and Things:
Reading the symbols:
If one looks symbolically at the
-the 2 zeros in 2020 and the
-corona virus magnified,
they are all round objects and represent
Are there really? In our imperfect world?
Reading the things:
It's Chap Goh Mei* with the lanterns.
Enjoy the time.
But it's Orange Alert.
And the virus is present.
So keep safe and keep our hygiene.
But there's the #8
Because Chap Goh Mei falls on the 8th this year.
And 8 is prosperity, wealth or generally good luck in Chinese.
I leave you guessing as to my meaning.
A Happy Chap Goh Mei. Keep Safe. It's Orange Alert.
Yes Mr Virus. Get Out, Get Out!!!
*Chap (10), Goh (5), May (night) = End of Chinese New Year as the 15th night (literal translation from the Fuchien dialect) where lanterns are lit when both adults and children enjoy the evening.
Being both a Chinese and an English Literature student, it's personal explanation of symbols and things. Believing is another aspect altogether. I'm just hoping this enemy virus will be destroyed soonest.
