Swish and flick.

“Think you’re escaping and run into yourself.
Longest way round is the shortest way home.”
– James Joyce, Ulysses

Christmas and New Year’s lightings.
Grace Baptist Church (台南浸信會恩慈堂), located along University Road of Tainan City.

Last year, there had gold and red long satin cloth covering this front wall. It was very nice and glorious-looking. Not a single bit of distaste and very likable, indeed.

But typhoon in June’14 came so strong and mercilessly it beaten and pounded mighty tons of gust-rains. Obviously, the long cloth wasn’t spared.

Front wall was assaulted and stripped naked. The cloth torn and thrown meters away like stranded jellyfish lying on white beaches. Oh! What a dis-Grace in the public(!). .. o.O

On the following week, it restored with brand new cloth and better adhesive-fixes. It lasted for a few months before putting up new decor. Wow! How nice!

This year (as in Dec 2014 ~ 15), it uses blue and yellow umbrellas for decoration. As shown. Every pieces attached on the front wall.

When the night falls, the lights illume the pavement with radiance beaming on every passerby.
