Nai Nai 奶奶(grandma)&Boat- my 渡 to the gorgeous lady~

My grandpa passed away….There is this kind of ceremony we Chinese often do. The secret holly ceremony for passed people. They burn papers to gain a wish that can send a soul to calm down to give them good omen. they must be sincere and knowing the gratefulness to the passing one.

Grandma had left me marks.....two sticks, and one large solide boat! they spoke firesly softlyto me... the two sticks heaveyly stayed on top of a great boat. However, the two burned away....in wind.passed to the air. The tough boat stayed to the end...very large boat, carried fire and heat standing so long...............

to the last.....

the little stick in my hand was a bit on fire..but very well handy and convinient. Happily enjoy all the ashes...:) and fly them away..my another alumium one was unused, sit in the zink base.

Godbless all.............the God who guideslife and death....

I memorize my grandma, because she was the real true woman who took over the task to pass down Chinese culture and literature to further generations. My grandma was listed on the public board as number one in her class. She got her name via her master teacher. She  was called Liou,淑卿 shanghai刘氏

    I’m not certain of the spelling,but it’s the only Chinese that I remember … Nai hou ma? I really loved your story and learning a bit of the culture. I find it very interesting to me. With the individual letters spaced out, it made it very difficult to read, but I found that by taking my time I could understand the meaning. It is a very good story and well worth the effort to read.

  • thank you JR,im not certain about the spelling either…i think i have weak link in spelling. in every alfabit…language:)) sorry.again. But yes i try to deliver a story, a scenary in mind..
