Inspired by Xu Zhimo’s poem “By Chance”, especially the second verse: “You go your way, and I’ll go mine. Remember if you will, better yet if you forget, the bright light we have exchanged in our encounter.” People meet each other by chance in their own separate ways. And when they do meet, they shine for each other like a comet brightening up the evening sky. This is what makes those encounters precious.
