For me, starting a new book is a weird process, part excitement, part trepidation, part curiosity. In this case, it’s starting the third, and for the moment, final book of the Duke Grandfather Saga. I say for the moment because even though I have every intention of moving on to other things, I st... Read more of this blog post »

I believe in reincarnation ... and someday the world will know the truth about it as well. I found a video on YouTube that speaks of the past lives of Jesus using the Edgar Cayce model of remembrance. It lists the past lives of Jesus, and I am sure there are other past lives not mentioned too.

With numbers ideas we play

while drawing the circles and squares

With letters we dance till the dreams

倪匡 倪匡's blog:

「你認識的女人中,哪一個最有氣質?」


曾有兩位記者小妹妹跑來做訪問。我一時也答不出。


氣質是一種抽象的存在,很難一眼看出。當然,有時會驚豔地感到走過的女人,真有氣質。但是,一坐下來和她們聊了幾句,即刻收回剛才的感覺。她們談的盡是甚麼名牌車輛衣服,其他的一竅不通,外國演員、導演名字的發音都搞錯了,還談得上甚麼氣質?


氣質應該是培養出來的,許多所謂很有氣質的女演員,起初入行的時候胖嘟嘟,只是後來愈看愈美,愈看愈順眼,跟著氣質就來了。但屈指一算,她們在電影圈中至少也浸淫了七、八年。


氣質的產生,是學習的精神,是進取的心態,沒有學問是不要緊的,但總要加上那麼一點點的幽默感。


看書可以加速。這個年代,並不要...
