Happy New Year! The year 2007 has come.
It will be a very important year for me; I have lots of matters to decide and determine this year. They range, say, from what occupation I should be engaged in and what sort of music I play to what kind of philosophy suits me.
If I should put them into one single question, it will be like this: "What kind of life do I want to live?" I'm not interested in earning much money, becoming a big name, or having a head-turning wife. What I believe I want to do in my life is to improve and make use of my ability in some social way, to love a few people and be loved by them in the deepest (but not too close) way, to lead a modest but pleasant life with them, and so on.
From the view of the whole world, the existence of me is hardly important. But that doesn't matter for me. It's enough for me to be an important person for and be respected by a few people, especially people whom I respect and who are important for me. What a happy life it is! I cannot hope more.
