Xingzhi Migrant Art School is a non-profit organization that offers art lessons for the children of migrant workers who otherwise would not have this opportunity. This update was written by Director Gu, the founder of and a teacher at the Art School.
I saw your photo accidentally today and I turned to the door of the art classroom. Looking outside, my eyes were full of tears. It seems I get a talkative ability, but it seems so hard for me to express my feelings at the moment. I was happy by seeing your smile.
Thinking of the time when we were walking along the playground of the school, the time when we spent under the phoenix tree, you helped me how to comb and set my hair, it seems everything happened just yesterday. Every time when I walked along the road to school, I could not help noticing one of the trees, because you had carved my name and your name on the one of them.
We sneaked to the internet café together and surfed on the line all night long. We went rollerblading together. The first time I went to your home, you cooked eggplant for me. I did not like eggplant, but you changed my attitude to it. It’s been a long time, and I almost forgot the taste of the eggplant.
Did we argue with each other? Were we mad with each other or angry with each other? I could not remember. I only remember we were so happy to be with each other. Did you still remember that we rent room for painting? We almost walked through all real estates of Daxing. Did you still remember your small blue car? Did you still remember Wumei Plaza? Did you still remember Kangzhuang garden? Did you remember the time we stayed up late together? Did you still remember September 7th? Did you still remember me?
I heard you were married. I just want to let you know in a place, there is a big family and an old father with many brothers and sisters, I am one of them and we will bless you.
Do not ask me it is for whom and I do not want to tell, because I know you know.
Your sister forever: Liren.
