As you might have noticed if you saw my latest video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQEgL...) we had a baby! Our little boy came to us on november 1st. How I found out that I was pregnant was very simple, through a test. Both me and Yonghong woke up really early one morning and couldn't go back to sleep. It all felt weird, and then suddenly my period app said that my temperature had been high for several mornings in a row, and that I might be pregnant and should take a pregnancy test. So around 6 in the morning i stumbled out with a cup and a stick to our outdoor toilet, and that morning, March 3rd, we found out that there was a tiny human growing inside my belly. That same day we decided that the baby's name was going to be Sansan (三三, three three) after that day. I actually planed to release this video on the third, but have not been able to connect to my VPN until now. But here you go, the story of our little baby boy.

› HOW I ACCESS YOUTUBE IN CHINA:
The VPN I'm using to access all the western websites from China (such as Facebook, Youtube and Instagram) is ExpressVPN. You can get it here: http://bit.ly/2BgvMTI
I have used since 2015, and so far I am very satisfied. During certain times of the year, I struggle to get on it - but the great thing about ExpressVPN is that their customer service is always available through their live chat, and they always try to help me if I encounter any problems.

▍2011年，美國插畫家弘穆司（Jon J. Muth）依據巴布狄倫（Bob Dylan）名曲《風中飄盪》（Blowin’ in the Wind）繪製同名繪本。民謠《風中飄盪》兼具社會意識與哲學深度，以劃過天空的砲彈隱喻戰爭；以簡單的＂men＂代指致力推翻不公的人們。詞曲未提任何具體事件或個人，僅清晰傳遞關於愛、正義與平等的純粹訊息。針對《風中飄盪》，巴布狄倫有不同唱法，有時滿懷希望與光亮，像看見紅氣球升空；有時則充滿懷疑與失落；像看見紅氣球被刺破。
▍2019年，弘穆司繪本《風中飄盪》（Blowin’ in the Wind）在台問世。弘穆司以孩童、紅氣球、紙飛機和民謠吉他貫穿全書，分別代指純真、希望、白鴿與反戰。弘穆司的《風中飄盪》觀點可說與《蒼蠅王》壁壘分明。繪本《風中飄盪》同樣將幾名兒童設定於田園山水，全書也無成人身影（除了監獄牆後向紅氣球招手的黑人囚奴們），然而一改《蒼蠅王》逼視人性劣根的路線，弘穆司將孩童群聚山丘或一同划舟，帶著自省眼光行經監獄、高牆、砲口與冰山，將紅氣球抱於懷中或飄立空中。在歌詞「要犧牲多少人，才明白太多生命消失在人間？」（Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows,That too many people have died?）這頁，孩子們更將紅氣球繫於象徵列強的加農砲口。細線如絲在風中飄盪，繫起一場善惡之間懸而未決的永恆角力。
▍最後，時間來到今天。12月10日是國際人權日，為你點播一首Bob Dylan的（Blowin’ in the Wind），也邀請你閱讀弘穆司繪本《風中飄盪》，看看孩子們如何飄揚、高掛、分享、珍視他們的紅氣球🎈
