Transients

I would think of Hong Kong as a large port wherein lots of ships dock and the ships would symbolize us, transient people. Since this country is one of the progressive cities in the world, especially in Asia, most of the ships dock here for business, trading, transit, shopping, eating, etc...

Like ships, we dock and stay here indefinitely. Some with a fixed schedule, some for the time being, some for good and some whenever. Within this period of stopover or settlement, we meet ships (people) who become our friends and become a part of our lives. We share stories & experiences, hang-out together and learn from each other. We take a day at a time until it becomes weeks, months and then, years trying to fulfill whatever our purposes for residing here. Until that day of the unknown where one or few of the ships that we have come to know has to sail and dock to a new port.

My ship has docked in this port for almost four years now, and I have watched, hugged and missed those who have to set their sails and go. But for all those who are still here and for those who are going soon, I would like to wave my hands, "Bon Voyage" and have a happy journey to life. Thanks for being part of our lives.

perfect analogy! soon most of you will be sailing to other parts of the world, just like me, but we can rest assured that the Thursday Group will always have a special place in our hearts.
