Write on...Cheung Chau

A bridge will be built, an airport opened, new housing will be constructed, and long breakwaters will be set in place to protect the harbour and the many people who live upon the sea. Through it all, the morning mist continues to drift over the land, and relentless waves beat their endless rhythm against the shore. Fishing boats will sail from the harbour at dusk, and the mournful call of foghorns will guide them back. That's how it was, that's how it will forever be. From my rooftop deck on Cheung Chau, I was witness to it all.
