On 16 March, a total of 16 SUIS (Shanghai United International School) students and I set off to Guilin, Guangxi Province in Southern China. In Guilin, we met with representatives from the ME to We Association and engaged in charity work.

Mrs. Loser
 
“Class.”
Stiletto heels on the tiled floor. Click-clack, click-clack to the front of the room.
A full class rustles with anticipation. Whispers flit through the room like bats in a cave.

Is she the new teacher?

What do we… 

What happened to…

I don’t know

She seems…
 
“Attention.”
The class falls quiet like she’s pressed the [...]

A Lesson in Music Theory
 
i. adagio: a slow tempo
There is a small piano shop at the end of the street, ordinary in every possible way except for the young piano man who sits by the window, playing some unheard melody. It is always there, yet quite easy to forget that it had ever existed.
They [...]

A Golden Lesson  
I opened my eyes, as the sunlight streamed through the curtains and slowly got out of bed. Today was to be the most significant day of my life – I was to leave for Australia with my brother Li to seek my fortune in the dark and dangerous mines of Ballarat, the gold-mining [...]

The Thinking Led by a Mosquito
 
2017, August 31st, Thursday, sunny
“Mooooooommm”, I whined:“Those stupid mosquitoes have bitten me again! This time it’s worse! I have almost thirty mosquito bites. My legs now look like the kind of disgusting radish rolls with strawberry jam on it that my grandma Anne makes.”
“Aww, you poor thing, I will go [...]

Once, a king believed he could defy God. To prove his might, Nimrod built the Tower of Babel, tall enough to reach the heavens. God, insulted by this challenge to his power, cast the plague of languages upon humanity. Thus did Nimrod’s recklessness cause division among us, forcing men to see their own brethren as [...]

The Gap Year
 

JOY
“I am seated in an office, surrounded by heads and bodies,” begins David Foster Wallace in his magnum opus, Infinite Jest. “Just brains, sitting around, trying to decide how to outwit other brains,” thinks Dr. Jeremy Stone of Michael Crichton’s Andromeda Strain, as he witnesses nameless ministers gathered to discuss national security.

A Sense of Home
Maybe I’m a lot like Dorothy in The Wonderful Wizard of OZ, clicking my heels together saying, “There’s no place like home.” Even before the school bell rings, telling me classes are finished for the day, my feet are already in motion, doing the happy clap-clap-clap heel dance!  My home makes me [...]

HOMEBOUND
 
Light. Darkness. False light in absence of the true. Thought is a sovereign hallucinogen. Alternating strobes. Black white bands sear vision. Cones and rods. Ocular mechanics. Organics. Flesh. Body. Embodied. Serendipity. Spiritual syzygy. It’s a matter of perspective. Lightyears in an instant. The usual irony. A bloody tang. But it only seems that way.

ZERO.
I exist because she willed me to. Age thirty-five, the Chinese woman longed for a child, a daughter, to hold. Thus, on January 1st, 2000, the first day of the month, of the year, of the century, I took my first breath, a lungful of [...]

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HOME
 
You stare at the dull gray table.
You feel the officer’s eyes staring into you like that of a ghost. He was the one that came when the store called the police. With a small glimpse, he was around thirty, fair-skinned with dark brown [...]
