A Place in the Sun

May 26, 2008

Warren Buffett once said that, at the heart of the matter, he and his musician son, Peter Buffett, are essentially doing the same thing. As value investors, we compose music with capital and with focus. Here below is a blind man who really focused. He penetrated the clouds in his own mind and created something amazingly beautiful that penetrated the hearts of people all around the world. If a blind man can do it. Why can’t we?

A Place In The Sun
by Stevie Wonder

Like a long lonely stream
I keep runnin’ towards a dream
Movin’ on, movin’ on
Like a branch on a tree
I keep reachin’ to be free
Movin’ on, movin’ on.

‘Cause there’s a place in the sun
Where there’s hope for ev’ryone
Where my poor restless heart’s gotta run.
There’s a place in the sun
And before my life is done
Got to find me a place in the sun.

Like an old dusty road
I get weary from the load.
Movin’ on, movin’ on
Like this tired troubled earth
I’ve been rollin’ since my birth
Movin’ on, movin’ on

‘Cause there’s a place in the sun
Where there’s hope for ev’ryone
Where my poor restless heart’s gotta run.
I know there’s a place in the sun
And before my life is done
Got to find me a place in the sun.

You know when times are bad
And you are feeling sad
I want you to always remember:

Yes, there’s a place in the sun
Where there’s hope for ev’ryone
Where my poor restless heart’s gotta run.
I know there’s a place in the sun
And before my life is done
Got to find me a place in the sun.

Ordinary Miracle

April 19, 2008

Zenway is about seeking the miracle in the ordinary. Here is a great song that captured that spirit. As a young pianist and entrepreneur, I hope I could write a song like that one day. Stay tuned! (Hilary Zen)

“Ordinary Miracle”
From Movie “Charlotte’s Web”

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it’s time to snow
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift, they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up, and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like everytime a raindrop falls
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The birds in winter have their fling
And always make it home by spring
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
‘Cause we are all a part

Of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle

Do you want to see a miracle

It seems so exceptional
That things work out after all
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The sun comes out and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today
