I seldom went back to Nantou to see my 92-years-old grand father.
Just 2 or 3 times per year.
This Chinese New Year, we spent 3 days with him.
I felt sad for him.
Aging effected his life tremendously, hearing, chewing (teeth), heart, stomach, etc.
My grandfather couldn't do something.
Yet, he could do some other things I couldn't:
He lived a simple life; he lived in a house; he enjoyed the fresh air, and etc.
I knew what I do right now would influence my lives in the future:
life style, job, health condition, spouse, kids, and etc.
The weather was becoming cold when I was back to Taipei.
Sure, my knees were “kind of stiff.”
I can't feel sad for myself.
I need to be responsible for what I have done in the past; I have to be responsible for myself in the future.
I need to get my mater thesis done by June, 2010, and get my knees better this year.
