I got the beautiful piece named《蜉蝣》 (Mayfly) by my friend Youyue (幽月) today, and it is really warm, peaceful and poetic. It's exactly two weeks after Youyue said he's going to compose for my graduation recital.
People say the mayflies are born in the morning and die in the evening, and this is Youyue's imagination of how their lifetime is like in one day.
Quote from Youyue:
When every function of basic living you've taken for granted has gone gradually, with weaker heartbeat and breath, slower walking pace, and less appetite, you can still keep enjoying the journey of life without complaining, and appreciate life.
After you have witnessed death, you will start to think how to live.
