Project Overview

People, nowadays, care about enjoying life. Given the fast-paced urban life, the trend of life philosophy focuses on the slow living. Su Shi, the great Chinese literature, mentioned in his extraordinary piece of writing “First Ode on the Red Cliff” that “We are like mayflies wandering in this terrestrial world or a grain of millet drifting on a deep ocean.” Compared to the infinite universe, the human life is as tiny as the mayfly. Life is short, and it is a lifetime of wisdom to life great in the limited life.
