First of all, I want to thank you all for coming to this party. I have thrown this party, because I wanted to thank you all for being kind to me while I have been here.
Looking back, it seems like a very short five years living here and working together with you. My wife and I still remember the first day we arrived in Los Angeles, and every thing looked so huge, compared with things in Taipei. The first several months were a difficult time, but we tried very hard to adapt ourselves to the new environment, new life style, and a new place of work. There were times of disappointment, anger, and humiliation, and there were also times of joy, excitement, and happiness, Through them all, you have always been with us to share the sorrow and happiness, and we are deeply grateful to you for that.
Millions of thanks to you all, and don't forget to finish your dinner before it gets cold.
Light,My Light,Shattered into Gold on Every Cloud:the World Filling Light,Heart Sweetening Light .
Light,my light,the world-filling light,
the eye-kissing light,
The light is shattered into gold on every cloud,my darling,
and it scatters gems in profusion.
Mirth spreads from leaf to leaf,my darling,
and gladness without measure.
The heaven's river has drowned its banks
and the flood of joy is abroad.
-Rabindranath Tagore ( Nobel Laureate Indian Poet)
