It's my birthday today. 😄, I'm 28 now. Ah, I feel quite happy

. There are so many things I want to do and learn and I have been getting better at focusing on them. 🤓📚💪, I will do my best to keep improving myself and wish everyone the best. ✨

On my birthday last year I read Tanizaki's A Portrait of Shunkin, one of my favourite stories, and posted an excerpt from it. Today I read his A Night in Qinhuai and would like to share a little part from that. ✨

Excerpt from A Night in Qinhuai by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki.

When the walls ended and we came to open land, a damp, cold, night breeze flowed stealthily toward me from nowhere in particular. The more these gloomy surroundings sank into me, the more vividly the image of the beautiful woman I had seen just thirty minutes before rose in my breast. No matter how much I thought it over, I could only believe that encountering such a beauty in that forsaken city had been like a dream.

    28 years old is a wonderful age! You are already experienced enough to evaluate your achievements. And still young and you can dream and do little stupid things. I hope your soul as beautiful as your voice. Good luck. Happy birthday 💐🎶🌟
