BLURB

It’s just a laundry line you say, but I see it as much more. This is my tightrope debut, my maiden voyage if you will. Of course I’m still finding my balance today but with much practice and some luck, maybe I’ll walk across the Empire State Building. Now wouldn’t that be a marvelous sight! Oh my dear friend do not worry for me, I’m sure this laundry line will hold up just fine. Watch and learn, haha! I’m struggling to find my balance now, but check back with me in a few months, I’ll show you. My mother told me I can do anything if I put my heart and soul into it, I’m a quick learner. My mother is always right, yes she is, and no, she would never deceive me, no such thing. Ok then, here we go. I’ll see you at the bottom, one way or another. [Edward Cui 崔雁翔]
