六月有奖征文:To October Snow in Calgary

作者:程元 | 来源:苏州枫华学校

 Dear Lee and Deana,

The weather here is still warm like early springtime. I heard that it

snowed in some cities near Suzhou few weeks ago. However, we

still did not touch winter’s coat in Sino-Canada. I saved your photo

of the first snow falling in Calgary in my computer, it seems so

gently and quiet, quite different from the hustle and bustle here.

Thank you for the snow you shared with me. Usually, people may

think that snow is cold and chilly. And I hope it snows, then I can

see the snow-covered landscape, for me it is pure and warm,

because it makes me think of my friends at the opposite end of the

world.

Today morning, I accidently saw this photo again I cannot help to

recall, to recall those moments our friends shared together. That

day, we had a farewell meeting. I understood you were leaving

soon. I sat there to listen and watched all those videos in

Multimedia room. We were laughing together and recalled all the

great and happy moments even some of them I was not being with

you. I did know this was one of the most unforgettable moments in

my life. But I am sorry that my mind was flying away for a short

while. At that time, I was thinking about I should join our BC group

earlier, and then I could share much more time with you. All those

moments on the videos were fantastic and touching. I felt that it

was just like a special graduation ceremony for us during that

graduation season.

I understand that everyone will have a new place to go, new

dream to pursue. It is absolutely not an ending but a brand-new

beginning for all of us. This planet is really big, it is really a big

world even we have airplane can fly across the ocean and land. I

have never been abroad before; also I don't know when we will

meet next time. However, I can only provide some chicken soup

for cheering us up for this. In China, we have the vocabulary of

"Yuan fen", it can be paraphrased as "Fate” in English. Or

Perhaps this world can be small for some unknown reason, we

will have chance to meet each other in Canada one day or

somewhere on the earth.

The night falls. I guess that you may also want to see the beautiful

snowy Sino-Canada, the lake scenery of Dianshan Lake, the warm

and joyful Christmas party and teachers’ and students’ happy faces.

The lake, buildings, library, gym, playground, the list goes on…every

corner is full of good memories. I forget to tell you, after you leaving,

often I hear students mentioned you and Deanna. I can feel they

really miss you even you look like so strict to them, they actually know

what you have done are good for them, for their future. Sino-Canada

is a magical place; people come here from different countries but for

one goal that is to cultivate our lovely students to be successful in life,

in society. If we see Sino-Canada as a bridge connected with foreign

teachers and Chinese students, then you must be the one we called

“soul engineer”.

It is December now, sooner or later, we probably will welcome our first

snow princess here. When she comes, I will take a photo of hers and

say hello to you.
