Some Econ and Stat Links

Spiritual Links

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Proverb 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Proverb 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Romans 5:2-5 We rejoice in our hope of sharing the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.

My Culture

  • My play (on Chinese Lute pipa) of Lin Hai's "Words of Pipa"

    -- a most beautiful composition that reminds me so much of my culture and hometown.

  • Tall Mountain and Flowing Water

    -- Wherefore "Mountain"? Wherefore "Water"?

  • Playing GO: The Internet GO Server
