Like the vast majority machines, I also need to take a break to clear out the excess garbage and have a quiet time to comfort my heart and soul after a busy and heavy work day.
In modern society, a large variety entertainment activity is tempting us to take part in, enjoy, release, relieve, have fun, banish boredom etc, whatever, for various reasons.
I don't know if people have got what they wanted initially, all what I know is they couldn't truly satisfy, comfort and calm me, what they took away from me is merely the fluid time, leaving a noisy memory.
Life is moving, working is continuing, researching is advancing, nothing can stop the step of the world to go forward. I am a very tiny one in the universe, searching for the meaning of life which only belongs to me, releasing my slight heat to the world.
Life needs a blank zone to set our fatigued heart to relax, to supply more energy, to provide more leisure time, to see more scenery of the nature, the beautiful flowers in spring, the dazzling dusk in summer, the golden leaves in autumn, the white snow in winter, to breath the fresh air after a heavy rain.
For me, the blank zone is an hour of writing every day, no matter what happens, one hour to put down everything in hand, just to taste the precious time and enjoying the rarely leisure in the busy.
Now, writing every day likes a self-medicine can deal with my moods well, and make me healthier, saner, happier, more optimistic, hope you can find fun in writing.
