Existence is art, I exist, therefore I am art.

Lin Art: Moss(青苔)

Lin Art: Moss(青苔)

As the traditional Chinese New Year comes to an end, and families eat tangyuan, the cold rain that lasted nearly two years finally shows signs of stopping.

In the back alley of my hometown, there is a wall that still stands, despite being intentionally left by a neighbor who wanted to occupy more land when they rebuilt their old house into a high-rise decades ago. This ancient red brick wall that intersects the road is still adorable, even though people can be wicked.

Every year in late winter and early spring, new green moss spreads across the once dull and even bald brick wall. Against the grayish air, the wall comes alive with vigor.

隨著時序來到華人傳統農曆新年的尾聲,家家戶戶吃著元宵的時候,綿延將近橫跨兩個年度的寒雨,總算有了稍歇跡象。

筆者老家的後巷中存在著一堵牆,是隔壁惡鄰為了佔地為王,在幾十年前將老宅改建大樓時,故意留著活生生橫插在路上的的一堵古早紅磚牆。

人心雖惡,這堵有時光感的古老紅磚牆卻依然可愛。

每年到了晚冬初春的時節,原本已經暗沉甚至禿光的磚墻頭上,又會遍佈新生的鮮綠苔蘚,在空氣的灰色基調陪襯下顯得生氣盎然。
