A friend of mine occasionally shows me her art works on film slides, for most of her works are either on display at art galleries or were sold. One time, I showed her a Chinese scroll painting and asked her view of the painting. She answered me amusingly, "If you like that painting, it is a good painting. If you don't, then it is insignificant to you."
I read on my spare time, a little bit of this....a little bit of that, nothing fancy or big. I read whatever challenges my mind or touches my heart, so it doesn't have to be works from Aristotle, Shakespeare, or any Chinese classics, nor does it have to be literature or history. For instance, I just finished reading ET Princess' essay on "Father" posted on 10/31/99. ET clowns around a lot and I am amazed at her sensitive view of the internal strem of consciousness. Personally, I consider it one of the best articles I have ever read on this Web. I was so caught up in her story that I, too, wanted to sip a glass of red wine and think about the emotions that pass or continue beyond. Who says that every story must have a beginning and end?
I truly admire your vast knowledge and appreciation in both Chinese and western literatures. Quoting your words, I did get my time worth reading your articles. Although I may not like all of your points, I believe you will be a valued member to this Web. You just need to tone down your arrogance a bit. I hope you will come to visit this Web more and let us all benefit from your great ideas.
