The day I die, there’ll be no snow

To express life itself through collective consciousness, I recall the first time I felt death in ‘The day I die, there’ll be no snow’. That night, I was lying in bed, looking outside a window. There weren’t many high rise buildings in Beijing in 2002, all the buildings I saw are one floor houses built with tiles on the roof. These houses are so low they couldn’t cover much of the sky. I saw lights inside each house and on streets, the stars mingled with human made lights. I couldn’t tell which part is the sky, which part is earth. At that moment, I felt emptiness. I thought the day I died, I would have the exact same feeling. This emptiness is so strong, that nothing can change it. Not people, not the world, and not even time.
