(附中文) After ten years, landed in Canada again and checked the northern light on my bucket list! Yellowknife is the only city in the northern Canada. Due to the stable weather and perfect location, Yellowknife is one of the top places to see the northern light.
The night was like a black velvet tufted with countless diamonds, providing the aurora the best stage cyclorama. Sometimes, the aurora covered the velvet tranquilly while shooting starts kept running across it. Sometimes, the aurora split into colorful ribbons and danced fiercely. Green, white, red… There’s no single color that can describe the beauty of aurora, just like there’s no single word that can describe how grateful and blessed I feel tonight.
When seeing the colorful aurora dancing fiercely in the dark sky, I surprisingly found the inner peace I lost for a while again. Actually many things had happened since I moved to the U.S., and I did need a break to understand myself again and make adjustment as needed. Six long-haul flights, two nights with spectacular aurora and countless moments doing nothing but thinking simply made me feel the excitement of being alive again. In addition, the beauty of nature always reminds us of the insignificance of human beings.
“I can be by myself because I’m never lonely; I’m simply alone, living in my heavily populated solitude, a harum-scarum of infinity and eternity, and Infinity and Eternity seem to take a liking to the likes of me.” — Too Loud a Solitude
