岂非颖而不得?

我未潜心研佛
但心慕
梦得一禅
无欲无求
终青葱淡寡
盥心

我未通略紫微
但神往
参悟天道
神游苍穹
遂清风掠影
笑傲

我未颂唱福音
但感之
忏往自省
众善博爱
能归宿圣洁
永恒

然尘世尚不可得
浪之潮弄而不减
心欠安
非能释然

岂非绝顶而视
方能缘静平


述之以慰已

断翅蝴蝶飞 | 月旦评

今天偶然翻起一位老家笔友十年前的一篇回忆,酒香四溢,快意人生。引出这篇回忆的,是老家的一瓶普通的白酒——三塘(品王的前身),也勾起了我记忆里的那些画面。

(断翅蝴蝶飞,哀鸣似落叶)

落叶1.jpg

童年的光景里,家家户户餐桌上似乎都都少不了一扎三塘。在白酒还未曾过度包装的上世纪90年代,朴实的家乡酒还是用红色的塑料绳盘起瓶口,12瓶一扎。因为酒很便宜,几块钱一瓶,所以那时候都是一扎一扎购买。

这位笔友年轻时候曾经在南美奋斗和闯荡,历经艰辛不提,收获了多彩的青春和人生的积淀。他借着老家的这瓶三塘,构建了他在巴西利亚的朋友圈。让外邦友人感受到了我华夏民族的豪爽、胆识和义气。

酒,很神奇。闻起来果香飘溢,但入口辛辣、灼心。但激起了你的情绪,沸腾了你的心智,卸下你的防御,合适的场合,就是打开人群心扉的金钥匙。

我爱读这篇回忆,当中有他国的艰难和辛酸,有人性的脆弱和坚强,有民族的自尊和刚强。

我读过不下五次,每次都能深深的进入那个风起云涌的开放年代,那种大潮之下,搏浪前行的勇敢与顽强。 Continue Reading

那时阳光正好,我们如此相遇 | SmileChallenge

微笑,或许能温暖一颗心;
开怀,希望能感染一群人;
不必时时强作欢颜,也可遇事一笑而过。

Nominated by @jessicameng, this is my entry to enter #smilechallenge. Life is short, never regret anything that made you smile. One thing I know is that you never failed to put a smile on my face, and despite how things seem to be turning out. I have always thought it wise to never regret time spent with someone who fills a life with such moments.

Nightlife Started from Dinner 晚餐就开始的夜生活,一直陪你躁到凌晨2点

酒吧、餐厅、咖啡厅的混血儿,
这里有美食、美酒、音乐、表演,
午后暖茶,深夜微醺,总有一些地方,可以遇见美好。

I was fortunate to have an outstanding dinner at Hutaoli bar. When I first entered there, I thought it was quite small and quite bar with a few high tables in the bar area. However, when I sat around the table next to the window, I found it was a romantic place decorated carefully in both retro and modern styles. It was raining a little which made the view even more special. Anyway, the food there was pretty good. The staff was very friendly and pleasant.In the night, it feels so good to sit at the bar and listen to the music.

最近我在追剧《恋爱先生》,因为超喜欢雅痞胡八一,所以一直追颜值爆表的男神,他们在剧里最佳的约会圣地就是胡桃的里面,木质的优雅 – 胡桃里。这家的音乐似乎很懂我,或者是因为大家都爱阿黛尔,静静在坐在大厅里,听着阿黛尔,心里犹如蜜糖一般美滋滋,坐在这里时间似乎比外面慢一拍,在这里文艺的气息里刚刚好。

墙面跟立柱上贴满了各类文青最爱的海报,凌乱却不繁杂,装修充满小心思,复古情怀藏在每个角落,酒瓶形状的吊灯,绿色植物灯饰、各种小摆件、不断的给这家的品味加分,也让我的镜头一直停不下来。 Continue Reading

Entry For “YourCityVibez”: Behind the Glitz | 浮华背后

Hello Steemit Friends,

This is my entry for YourCityVibez contest hosted by @vladikras :Street/Roads. If you want to join, see the details here.

这是我提交的由 @vladikras 发起的YourCityVibez 的参赛作品。 最新的主题是街道/路,具体规则见这里

psb.jpg

This photo was taken at the way to Suzhou Center besides the Jinji Lake. This photo becomes a little fuzzy as the car is moving really fast. I choose the un-finished skyscraper as the background and the fast-moving cars as the front scene. From this photo, I want to show the busy life for the new citizens at the fast growing Suzhou city.

这张照片拍摄的是现在最最最繁华的苏州中心未竣工的时候,坐落在美丽的金鸡湖边。这张照片中汽车有点点糊,背景是为竣工的苏州中心,马路上是疾驰的汽车,我想用这张照片凸显出新苏州人建设新苏州的忙碌。 Continue Reading

智化凌绝顶 一览众生相 【Eagle Eye 】

“人工智能”概念异常之火爆,从阿里到旷视(Face++),从政府到各类孵化器,新一轮的狂欢又将启程。最近接触了一帮致力于从事人脸识别项目的朋友,了解到了这个行业的一些情况,有点细思极恐。

(最近各种活动好多的,上周在凯宾斯基酒店拍的)
从产业应用上来说,今后人脸的识别将在社会公区机场、车站、院校、酒店全线上演。 Continue Reading

千金买骨玩套路 几家欢喜几家愁

gongzuorichang.jpg

(论支书的工作日常)

如果你是做创业公司的,或是其中一员,想必常常会面碰到各种科技、创新企业的项目申报,今天我们聊一聊这个话题。

起初,各地政府面对国家“互联网+”政策概念,开始调整财政扶持,通过现金、房租等补贴的形式支持中小微企业开展产品、技术研发和企业发展。说白了,也是一种招商形式,不过不是“引资”,而是“出资”。通过政策把人引来,把技术和好的项目带进来,带活当地的经济。

先前,通过互联网的大浪潮,催生了很多B2B、B2C甚至B2E的小微企业,在当地的科技部门提交项目方案和人才证明,就可以获得几十甚至是上百万的项目扶持资金,同时还可以拿到相当面积的减价办公用房,税收也可以抵扣。这也催生了各地种种“科技产业园”的落地。

于是有人说,中国的ZF是有多形象工程,拿纳税人的钱不当钱,好多烂项目,甚至违规的挂羊头卖狗肉的项目也能评入扶持,拿到资金。我也见到过,父母当年花钱送去国外,种种原因吧,觉得国外混不下去,回国之后弄点新颖的概念,包装成立了互联网公司,成天忽悠投资人来付钱,他负责烧,这种也能拿到扶持资金。

jinjihu.jpg

所以大家纷纷感叹,难道堂堂大天朝真的就是这么得“人傻、钱多、速来”吗?

现如今想想,情况可能并不是这样。多年以前,我们确实没技术、没人才。国家要想办法引入人才,搞到技术,但是国外技术和人才的壁垒难以攻破和逾越。这里就要感叹天朝的厉害之处,举国之重力,扶持政策从上至下,遍地开花。

话说到此处,不知各位是否有听过一则成语的故事——“千金买骨”,故事说的是战国时期,有位君王,十分想得千里马,苦求多年都没能获得。后来君王侧旁一位近臣自荐,想替主分忧。君王应允,派他携千金四处寻求。时隔数月,近臣返回,禀命,言已获千里马,但马已死,遂以五百金得其骨。

君王大怒,五百金换一堆马骨,你似不似撒?
(注意,前方高能)
近臣言道:如今天下已知臣以五百金为主购得千里马骨,死马之骨已五百金,况活马乎?
到这里,君王才明白其中道理。
果不其然,不到一年千里马至,得数三。

想必故事讲到这里,各位应该知我前文的意思。 Continue Reading

We enjoyed the happy first ever China Suzhou Steemit Meetup this Afternoon 第一次Steemit中国苏州正式聚会

After preparing for a month, we are holding the first major Suzhou Team Steemit Meetup at October 15th. We have tried our best to design the banners, the stickers, and the hand flags printed with unique id of each member. It is the first time for me to organize an official meetup.I finally find a place with traditional Chinese elements, and a big enough stage to have fun.

筹备了一个月的Steemit聚会今天如期举行,之前虽曾小聚一次,但今天的活动当属Steemit平台苏州真正意义上的首次聚会。这次活动,我们经过了精心的准备和策划,从横幅的设计制作,再到富有文艺气息的选址,都是初次。

After announcing the meetup notice, I so happy that I received many messages from other Steemit members who would be love to join us. In my opinion, October 15th is a day to remember forever as it means a lot for our Steemit Suzhou Team.

聚会通知发布后,大家的种种期待和参与的热情,对聚会的成功也是美好的预示吧。所以,在我看来,2017年的10月15日这个日子,对于Steemit苏州有着不可小觑的纪念意义。

There are 11 steemit members who attended the meet-up. From left to right, @herlife @karasui @lucyshow @candiceji @sunnyjolly@veronicazhu @icedream @hannahwu @ceciliali. And the only male in this meetup is @luneknight, who comes from Beijing.

参加的有11位,从左到右依次是 @herlife @karasui @lucyshow @candiceji@sunnyjolly @veronicazhu @icedream @hannahwu @ceciliali 中间这位唯一的男生是来自北京的 @luneknight。鉴于之前 @tumutanzi 帖子里说我们都是活在ps里的假女神,所以来个高清无滤镜无ps版本哦,单反拍的放大连毛孔都很清楚。

Steemit has its unique charm that no one could resist. Besides the friend from Beijing, we also have a remote video call with @victorier , who is from Hongkong. He looks so youthful and handsome. When he finds I am taking photos of him, he smiles shyly.

通过平台的号召力,除了有远自帝都的朋友前来加盟参与,还有一位远程参加的香港朋友 @victorier ,看到我在偷拍他笑得好害羞呀,但是大家一致表示很帅的有木有?这着朋友们的参与也让我深刻感受到Steemit的魅力和能量。

I would like to thank @tumutanzi, for delivering your wishes and anticipations; thank all the major players of Steemit for your great support, and thank Steemit itself for establishing a tremendous hub of ideas and friendship. All the activities organized are intriguing and mind-blowing, as always.

还有这位压轴的重量级 @tumutanzi 的捧场。我很感谢Steemit上的各位大鲸们的支持,亦很感谢steemit这个平台给大家提供了“以文会友”的社交平台,各类丰富多样的主题活动,比如文字类的,大伟哥 @rivalhw 跟菊老板 @jubi 定期都在举行“月旦评”活动,“谷哥点名”活动;绘画类的, @linuslee0216@htliao 跟女神 @nicolemoker 的“宠物大赛”,“动漫设计”比赛,跟“自画像”比赛,总能让人眼前一亮。

It is too cold to wear Steemit T-shirt here in suzhou. So we prepared many kinds of stickers like “I love Steemit”,”whale power logo”, and “steemit logo”. And we printed them in three different sizes. In this way, we could stick them to our faces, arms, and clothes.

sticker.jpg

And @sunnyjolly has her own way to show off her sticker. Please be focus on the nail art of @veronicazhu, she draw the steemit logo on our finger nails. It is so creative.

现在的天气穿steemit的T恤比较冷啦,所以我们给参与的成员制作了贴纸跟独一无二的手拉旗。并且很大大小小很多尺寸,请看参考 @sunnyjolly 贴标签的正确方式。请注意我们 @veronicazhu 的大拇指指甲, 很花心思的把steemit的logo画在指甲上了哦。

Dushu Lake Church Photography 独墅湖教堂

When talking about Suzhou, many people think about the little bridges over flowing streams, pavilions and towers with their shadows reflected in the water. I would be love to share the different exotic sightseeing of Dushu lake church today. It is located by the Dushu Lake and attracted many newly-wed couples to take wedding photos for its medieval Gothic architectural style. I like to visit the church because the people there are so friendly, and when hearing the songs they sing, I can feel the inner peace.

看惯了苏州的小桥流水,亭台楼阁,今天去了独墅湖教堂,领略一丢丢异国风情。苏州的教堂中,比较熟悉的是狮山基督教教堂,而独墅湖教堂风景最好,坐落于美丽的独墅湖畔,干净明亮的建筑、尖尖角的屋顶,哥特式的造型,吸引了很多新人区拍婚纱照。虽说我不是基督信徒,我也经常去教堂转悠,毕竟国内的寺庙都是要门票的,而教堂反而是免费的,而且教堂内的工作人员,都特别友善,更重要的是教堂那些听不懂的梵音让我格外的心安。

3.jpg

It is a good thing to have a beautiful church by the quiet lakeside. It can bring us peace, and quiet. When I visit this place, it could calm down my nerve, and I feel comforted.

从钢筋混凝土的现代都市漫步到美丽的独墅湖边,寻求到这样一个静谧之地,让人们的心灵得到一丝抚慰和安宁。落日时分,落日的余晖映照着湖水,在云彩中发出阵阵金光,温暖的眼光投射到湖水中,成为最亮丽的风景线。

11.jpg

Here’s the close view for its decorative Gothic style architecture.

哥特式建筑风格,主堂、牧师楼、钟楼。

4.jpg

When entering the white arch, you will see the main building of the church.

湖边漫步,走过这扇白色的小拱门,便走近了临湖边的教堂。

12.jpg

很多新人会穿着两米长拖尾的婚纱来拍婚纱照,在波澜荡漾的湖边绽放着灿烂的幸福,愿真主保佑他们永远幸福。

I didn’t see any visitors there, only a few new couples taking wedding photos. I can see their happiness from there smiling face. And wish them be happy and in love forever.

10.jpg

矗立在教堂广场中心的耶稣像张开双臂,普度众生,高6米,重达3吨,安放在1.8米高的汉白玉大理石底座上。上面有八个我看不懂得大字,“非以役人 乃役于人”。

May Jesus bless us.

一路上秀美的风景让人流连忘返。

The wonderful scene there is a great attraction

Travel to Lotus Island “蟹”露天机:莲花岛,美人腿,面拖蟹

“不是阳澄蟹味好,此生何必住苏州!”
“不得一味,而十味俱全”。
说得就是苏州久负盛名的阳澄湖大闸蟹。于是乎,上周末在 @icedream@herlife @candiceji 都在加班的时候,溜达去了莲花岛~

自古以来,阳澄湖大闸蟹就迷倒了万千吃货的❤。金秋九月,大闸蟹还没有上市,现在的都还是幼崽时期,成熟度不如十月的蟹,但味道更为鲜美,蟹黄较为软滑。九月苏州大闸蟹的正确吃法是面拖蟹,不仅螃蟹好吃,连面粉都那么好吃的一道菜!七月的时候更小只,“六月黄”是跟年糕一起炒。

游客比较喜欢的拼蟹区域主要在巴城,跟莲花岛。巴城是上海人去的比较多,交通很便利,可以直接自驾到酒店门口,具体见这里:I will invite you to dinner if you come to visit Bacheng this July 忙归忙,勿忘六月黄,我七月初去巴城尝试的“六月黄”。

yangchenghu001.jpg

周末我去的是阳澄湖的莲花岛,莲花岛位于阳澄湖正中央,说岛的造型像朵莲花,倒更像是一条美人腿。只能开车到莲花岛北码头,然后坐快艇登岛,快艇沿着阳澄湖的航线行驶,可以看到快艇两边都是养大闸蟹的蟹栏,穿行十多分钟,可以到各家的码头。

yangchenghu02.jpg

如果遇到暴雨天气,店家会选择用电瓶车接送,所以需要做快艇的需要看好天气,有次我台风天去的莲花岛,然后被困在岛上好久。。。当然了这是莲花岛的最大特色:风景秀丽,三面环水,黛瓦粉墙,人烟稀少,世外桃源,很适合度假。 Continue Reading
