I am a software engineer using the programming language Ada. In my spare time or when I do have a software bug or problem to take care of, I write creatively in prose or poetry or correcting other people’s English essays on Italki.com. This way, it relaxes and distracts my mind and solutions come easily to me.
One of my interests is translating classical Chinese poetry or stories into English. However, I am not good in the other direction. My Chinese isn’t good enough for the job.
Question & Answer In The Mountains
I dwell amongst the green hills: You asked me why:

Peach petals swept along the stream,
To other lands beyond this mortal dream…
