Beyond the clouds, blue
The pieces of you.
Trên những hàng mây, xanh
Những mảnh ghép lại là anh.

There's magic in translating a body of work from one language to another.

It feels so good to have a word with you again; I think the last time I said hello was in 2020 😂😅.

I have been keeping up with your material by browsing your blog but it’s great to hear your thoughts as always 😄😇

Your memory is probably better than mines 😅😅. What influenced my estimation to 2020, is the fact that I can’t remember having any chat with you for the entire duration of 2021 haha

Yes you do translate other people’s thoughts 🤭🤣. I meant hearing your thoughts within the context of general interaction/conversations etc 👍😄

I understand 😄. We all feel like that sometimes and I can imagine that having to translate the pieces of material that you often publish can be quite demanding on that brain, but I am impressed by how you still manage because it doesn’t really show 👍💙😂
