Chongqing, China, 1978, and I’m 8 years old. In the summer of 1978, I know I’m going to Datianwan Elementary School. Why? I know some of my classmates in Jialing School do not go there. My Dad and Mom do not tell me about it either. Is it by the principle of the students go to the nearest school or the students can choose between different schools? If there is choice, it will be the choice of my parents. I didn’t express any opinion. Later I know there is Caiyuanba Elementary School, and Lianglukou Elementary School is to the north of Mountain City Theatre. If counting the distance, these two schools to the east of my home are closer. We people are just like something put into a big machine. When the big machine turns, we turn as well no matter we’re willing to or not, and even cannot have our own thinking.
I want my own mind or thinking. Actually among all the body parts of people, the most important is the head, and the limbs just serve it. Only when the head feels comfortable, can the whole body feel comfortable. The limb feeling terrible is because the head feels the limb uncomfortable and then the limb feels uncomfortable. Thinking/spirit/head can run without the limitation of material, without the limitation of time and space, able to come and go as it wishes, able to be as a calm lake or as a billowing sea. And if it is material/wealth or the sensory stimulation, it brings much less happiness than the spirit/mind/thinking, or thinking happiness is much higher than the sensory happiness.
I take up my telescope and enter the 21st century. The Chinese democratic person Yu Jie in 2000 published his books Fire and Ice, Shouting in a Iron House, To Speak or Not, Mouse Loves Rice. In Mouse Loves Rice, there is an essay, “Every Street Moves Me”. Here we select the part “Shaoxing Duck”.
On the way to Shaoxing, we pass one creek after another, one pond after another. Shaoxing is an area filled with lakes and rivers, which bestows it with perpetual soul. I grow up in an area with so much water too, and Shaoxing truly gives me a special feeling that I’ve returned home.
Sitting on the running bus, I glance at the waters outside the bus window. The water comes to me one patch after another, dividing the ground into patches too. This makes me think of Lu You’s poem in South Song Dynasty, “Green leaves and red leaves appear in the foggy dusk, canoes selling the fish are often under the bridges. The scene in Du Mu’s poem and Ying Qiu’s painting all lay before my walking stick.” Today’s Shaoxing still has such poetic flavor, and larger cities like Hangzhou and Suzhou all become the hot tourist cities. Once a place becomes hot, it will see the changes including those mundane and commotional elements. But Shaoxing still holds its original appearance, quiet. It does not contend with others and keeps its essence to the best.
