Every moment is in itself a timeless reality; etched into the eternal universe. Yet so much of it raced by without my noticing.
Growing up in the high-pressure, academically-driven, male-dominated, 1980s Taiwan, facing racial prejudice for my mixed aboriginal ethnicity, I felt no choice but to prove my worth was equal to or better than my male cousins of pure Mandarin heritage.
I excelled among my classmates, went to the US for college, graduated from USC, thrived in my career in IT, became a proud citizen, began a family, bought a house in LA, and then was diagnosed with cancer.
In that moment, I realized that tomorrow is not a promise, and that my achievements meant nothing if I missed the precious moments of life. I also realized that so much of life is an intersection of outward and inward worlds, that are beautifully intertwined.
In "Timelessness" my young son's and aging father's inner and outer worlds intersect in one moment that can never be erased by age, illness, death or time.
