This artwork is on the way of Berliner Mauer. The artist just prepared water, elephant, forest and a slogan. He stayed beside the artwork and explained what happened. When elephants move, if they are lack of water, they are difficult to survive. When people live here, people will rob the water. So, you think what the best solution is? One is people live here and bring water for them, the other is people don’t live here and don’t compete with them.

This is the magic of Berlin!, Wonderful sunshine, talkative, and leisure of city, etc.

Everyone heard I will go to Munich, and they felt I’m crazy. Not only here is cheap but also people in Munich don’t communicate with others in recent years. However, it also happens in Berlin.

Today I talked to children classmate of father. Yes, I’m not in Berlin anymore. He admitted that people in Munich turned to be alienated, but he also said Berlin is BIG MOUTH. HAHA…they always talk, talk, talk. Oh come on, why not?

If you’re idealist, sometimes it’s not easy for you to understand what happened to society. Sometimes you should do something, let something changed. There are chemical alternation we need in ours society. In lyric of City of Deserts Xuan, “Decayed falls in the lands, and then becomes fertile.” If we blame the government, we also need to bring up solutions, and influence other people surround you.

I like to discuss. I remembered I was distressed last year, and I didn’t find the work I like. A boss asked me: Do you think what the problems of society are now? My answer is people don’t communicate with each other. We always think what I want, I need…. We don’t listen to other peoples’ needs. Although I didn’t work in this company, this guy still brought something brainstorm to me. I think success is not only lucky for him.
ps. The picture was taken at Wahrschauer Strasse of U-Bahn.

這是去看柏林圍牆的時候,在捷運出口遇到的一個藝術作品,只要自備水,大象還有叢林,和一個標語,藝術家就站在旁邊隨時可以幫你解說。大象的遷息過程中,缺了水源他們就難以活了下去,如果人類居住在這邊就會搶了他們的水源,這時候你覺得是人類居住了下來然後幫它們引來水源好,還是人類放棄與大自然爭水?

到今天為止,我依然還是最喜歡柏林,喜歡他的大太陽,喜歡他們愛講話,喜歡這個城市的悠閒感。在柏林時每個人聽到我接下來要去慕尼黑,都有種什麼?!你瘋了嗎的表情,這裡物價這麼便宜,而且慕尼黑這幾年變得不跟人對談的。

今天和小孩英文課的同學爸爸聊天,他也承認慕尼黑人變得疏離不交談,但他也說柏林人是大嘴巴,一直在說。有時候理想過高,會看不到社會真正發生的事情,有時候應該設法做些事情,做些改變,讓社會是有機會真正產生化學變化,在張懸城市這首歌歌詞中寫到,落在土地上的腐敗後成為肥沃,在靠夭政府的同時,也要提出解決方法,然後設法改變周遭的人的想法,雖然卡陰的人非常多,但我喜歡討論,還記得去年剛開始找工作的時候,灰頭土臉,一直找不到想要的工作,一個老闆問了我:你覺得現在社會的問題是什麼?我說大家沒有在溝通,都是從我出發,不聽別人講話。雖然我沒有如願進了這家公司,但這個老闆當初提出的想法和行銷策略,還是讓我覺得他會賺錢不是沒有道理。
