Equivalent Trade

It's more importance to recognize equivalence in things around us than to focus on favoritism. First of all, this helps us find different solutions to one given problem thus increase the chance of resolution. Secondly, this helps us choose quickly when the scale is tilted. Besides, we don't need to invent/learn new tricks when the old ones will do.

And, the process itself shall multiply the joyfulness that will leave you not a single bit of regret.

The temperature is getting as low as -18°C today. It was really unbearable outside. Come to think of it: The climate changes of the earth is intrinsically inevitable. The question is in the competition between the rate of change and the rates of adaptation of its dwellers. Will we make it?

There is an old Chinese saying: "Doing a good job requires a good tool". Here is a very good tool for my trade.

A Trip

Life is more like a trip and the point is to make the best out. For this, we need wisdom and an open mind, which could have been consequences of each other.
