Technical Difficulties; Again, Moving to Another Blog :]

Posted by C Moon on February 23, 2008

It has been almost six months since I’ve started this connective writing project. Many people visited my blog, and I am quite thankful to every one of them. I have to inform you that I am moving to another blog, due to technical difficulties in setting up my feedburner account: it tells me that my feed is invalid (for more information, visit this page from FeedBurner Help Center).

So, I’m having a new start here. I wish this journey of mine will interest you in many directions.

Audaces fortuna juvat?

Posted by C Moon on February 16, 2008

Recently, I was asked what “Audaces fortuna juvat” meant. I myself learned this phrase from my brother, as I never had a chance to learn Latin. I had chosen it to be my blog title, since it is the phrase that constantly inspires me. And I’d like to share it with everyone. The literal meaning is that “Fortune favors the bold.” Only the brave aim for high goals, and only the bold have the courage to stand up in great difficulties with an undaunted soul. Once translated into English, the phrase is so obvious. Only when one tries, opportunity opens up. When one does not try, nothing will change. This is one of those lines that just stick to one’s head and really do ring true. Stagnant water loses its purity. Do not fear and step forward. Then new opportunities will spring up.

Introduction

Posted by C Moon on September 24, 2007


Hmm.. the following is a poem that I wrote last year (2006-2007),
borrowing Langston Hughes’ style when writing “Theme for English B.”
I think it represents myself fairly well 🙂

“Theme for English 11″

) Ms. Porter said,
Now go, and write a poem.
Write your own Theme for English B.
“Let that page come out of you—
Then, it will be true.”

On the way home, on the bus,
I sat down and pondered.
What might it be that can show me?
What might it be that is for me?
Who is Catherine Moon?!

I like martial arts,
I like actions.
I like mysteries,
Especially the brainteasers.
I like learning the unknowns.

I love my family,
I love people.
I love the wind,
Especially the breeze.
I love the sky and the stars.

I stand here, at the present time.
Where everything’s changing, including myself.
To predict the future is to create one.
I do step forward, to reach my dreams.
I enjoy the world that envelops me.
