Cutie's love letter at the time of Corona

Dear my love,

It's a crazy time, you know, people wears mask and goggle—like a Bank Robbery.

People knows foods stores will be remain open but most of us are afraid of the world will ends soon, so, stock up foods, toilet papers, sterilizer &—etc.

Silence dominates this glove, first time since human culture started. We live like the time of the cave man, stay in our own cave, afraid of unknown Dinosaurs roaming outside.

There is a good sign, Dolphins & other fishes came back to canals in Venice, Italy, water is so clear, transparent. People in India can see Himalayan Mountain, for no smog. In Dumbo, Brooklyn, I saw the sky is true Blue, never have seen so beautiful Daffodils in the past, they are not simple white but transparent white.

Today is not yesterday and tomorrow is not today. Is it a sign of freedom?

Ying Ying and Le Le, two giant pandas at Hong Kong Zoo quite get in the mood & mated for the first time over 13 years, alas! First time they could have intimate privacy. If they were living freely in a wild, they never have been an endangered species.

I never have loved our planet so much before.
