One hundred and nineteen hours after the 921 Earthquake, I was on board in Singapore Airline with sentiments to fly towards the South once again. For a promise, to lecture a workshop for ”Last of The Century Leather Conference”.
didn’t see any chaotic phenomenon in the end of the century occurred
here, a clean, peaceful and rich land. The enthusiasm, sincerity and
humor of KIWI comforted me, a Taiwanese from far after the shake. How
blissful it was! Different racial leather lovers from worldwide could
get together for learning, challenging each other, and having fun. I
couldn’t express in words how much I appreciate the conference and
the new and old friends, but only cherish and work more with gratitude.
Especially the fellows from my multi-function box workshop, their support
and learning earnestness has deeply rooted in my memory. I have gained
from them more than I have given.
All at once, the glory of Taiwan was glaring in the night skies of the South and the North together. Such a beautiful achievement encourages me to proceed to the future of leather art and to look forward to the reunion somewhere in the world!
