• �And why, in comparison to thirty years ago,
    is the joyful dawn chorus of birds so muted now?.
    Could it be due to the �progress� we�ve made?�
  • �At last! I had found the perfect modeng girl,
    embodying that quintessential modernity found only in Shanghai ��
  • �Engrossed in its own affairs Shanghai,
    the love of my life, the place of my birth,
    turned its back. � On the wharf, a dead seagull,
    its wing lifted by fitful gusts of wind, waved goodbye.�
