Christmas Group Camp 大環 Dec 27-29 1967

The night was getting chilly, and the Campfire had long finished. At 2am I went out to do a camp inspection, making sure the tent ropes are tight, equipment properly stowed etc. There in the dead of night, I heard giggling and suppressed laughter, still.
From the Air Scouts area.
What on earth…and then the memory from a few hours ago at the Campfire came back, and I started laughing too. Continue reading

四友詠秋

四友詠秋

葉散風隨滿谷紅
雪猶未至霜先逢
日射晚霞秋早去
禿枝顫抖待嚴冬

This is a joint effort of 4 former Scouts, two of them were 11th Kowloon, Tam Sheung Po and Henry Ku.  The other two are Louis Tam and Ho Wing Chiu.  Each one of us contributed a phrase or a line.

《六尺巷》

六尺巷

清朝時期,宰相張廷玉家與一位姓葉的侍郎兩家相鄰而居,都要蓋房屋,但為了地皮發生了爭執。張宰相的母親便寫信到北京,要兒子出面干預。這位宰相看了來信,便回信給母親:
「千里家書只為牆,再讓三尺又何妨?萬里長城今猶在,不見當年秦始皇。」
母親看了信之後,立即把牆主動退後三尺;葉家見此情景,深感慚愧,也馬上把牆讓後三尺。這樣,張葉兩家的院牆之間,就形成了六尺寬的巷道,成了有名的「六尺巷」。
張廷玉失去的是祖傳的幾分宅地,換來的確是鄰里的和睦及流芳百世的美名。
人生中,寬容是一種無堅不摧的力量。
互相寬容的朋友一定百年同舟;互相寬容的夫妻一定千年共枕;互相寬容的社會一定和諧溫馨。
