That's indeed very long

Friday, August 15, 2014

The Chinese language never fails to fascinate me. As much as I dread learning it back then, it still astounds me in its beauty and depth.



Like the word for "long" here. I am not sure what the character is made out of but it has a "high table", "changed person" and "death". How does that spell long?



Another source states that originally this was an old man with a stick in his hand and with long unkempt hair.

Whatever it is, "long" certainly has that feel to it, that you are on a high table and you can't get down even after your changed, your mind or your being, even unto death.

Now, that's what I call long.
