DON'T MAKE RESOLUTIONS I DON'T MAKE New Year's resolutions - why should I? If people think it's important, then they should. If it's not important, then don't. I think actions are more important than words. Before bedtime is the time to make resolutions. There is a saying in Chinese that you should meditate three times a day. Really, it should be five times. Nowadays, post-modern society is so hectic there is no time to look back. Most people are looking forward to seeing how they can keep their jobs. Do I meditate? If I'm sober enough. Sometimes I'm a little bit drunk, or too sleepy, or in a bad mood. I'm a smoker; I like my cigarettes. I think when I smoke, I think when I drink my cup of coffee. You need to get rid of the normal patterns of daily life and provide the conditions, the right atmosphere, to review. You don't need to wait until the end of the year. My plan for 2005 is to fight for the right of referendum, and to fight against unemployment and poverty. Do I have strategies for this? Yes, but I can't tell you what they are. Just watch and see. My hope is that the pro-democracy camp provide leadership to help Hong Kong people voice their own demands. Give a platform for the people - that should be the resolution of the democrats. I also hope people have given themselves a good start to the year by joining the New Year's march. And don't forget July 1. I'll see you on the streets.
