Classical Poem



不论平地与山间,无限风光尽被占。 采得百花成蜜后,为谁辛苦为谁甜。 The Bees

Ta ng Dynasty

written by Luo Yin

Wherever in the fields a nd on the mounta in pea ks, Bees conquer the beauty of a ll flowers. After collected necta r from hundreds of flowers a nd made honey, Who do the bees work ha rd for? Who do they sha re the sweet success with? - Tra ns lat io n a n d text by Fra n k Ba o



Luo Yin lived from 833 to 910, he - 910年)

数次进京城考试。落榜十次后非常得 失望,使他写出了这首《蜂》。罗隐 用勤劳工作的蜜蜂来比喻像他一样勤

was a poet in the late Tang dynasty, who went into the capital city several times to take the imperial examination that would give him a job in the government. After failing the exam for the tenth times, he was extremely dissapointed, so he wrote “The Bees.” Luo Yin used bees as a metaphor for people


like him who worked very hard for the exams.

狐狸在回家的路上路过一个果园,他停在果园前望着鲜嫩多汁的 葡萄直流口水。正好狐狸也走累了,有点口渴。于是狐狸就退后几 步,准备跳起来来摘葡萄。但是葡萄藤太高了,狐狸不管怎么跳都 摘不到葡萄。最后, 狐狸因为失败了太多次, 所以就放弃了。他还 说:“这葡萄还没有熟透,肯定是酸的。” Mr. Fox saw a vineya rd on his way home. He stopped in front of it looking at those ju icy grapes a nd his mouth was watering. Mr. Fox happens to be pretty tired from the wa lking a nd pretty thirsty. So he ju mped u p a nd tried to reach the grapes. But, the grapevines were too high, no matter how he ju mped, he wasn’t a ble to pick a ny grapes. In the end, because Mr. Fox fa iled too ma ny times, so he gave u p. And he sa id, “These grapes a ren’t ripe yet, so they must be too sou r to eat!.”

People attending the event ca me from different cultu res a nd backgrounds, everybody stood together a nd su pported each other.

小灯笼感谢我们可以在 Coast Salish 原住民族的土地上生活。我们认知大温地区是 sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) 和 sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) 原住民并没有投降割让的传统领土。

图腾的木头来自 Haida Gwaii 群岛,是颗一千年老的红杉木。竖 立图腾的 potlatch 仪式按照着 Coast Salish 和 Haida 原住民族的礼 仪。许多人穿着传统礼装来参加活动。听着敲鼓、歌唱,我们目睹了 图腾柱的升起。这座图腾由不同社区人士合作,花了三年时间制作。 希望它能提醒着我们:祈望和愈疗。 Artic l e & P h oto by Li nda Zha ng & Wi n n ie Gua n The wood for the Totem Pole was a 1,000-yea r-old red ceda r tree, it ca me from Ha ida Gwa ii. The pole was ra ised in a potlatch ceremony following the protocols of Coast Sa lish a nd Ha ida First Nations. Ma ny people attending the event wore traditiona l rega lia. Listening to dru mm ing a nd songs, we witnessed the Totem Pole ra ising. This totem was a colla boration of people from different communities a nd it took three yea rs to ma ke it.
