Try to find the entertainment in life:)

It's a great way to travel with him/her!

Xiaoyu Liu's insight:

This was so funny. I ran into this Mexican couple on a trail in Central Park, and they were lugging around all these balloons. I asked what the balloons were for, and the guy told me that he’d brought them all the way from Mexico. He said he’d concocted this elaborate plan, where he’d given balloons to different people around the city (starting with the hotel concierge), and sent the girl on a scavenger hunt to find them.
"Just because?" I asked.
"Just because," he said.

——————————-

When I got home, I had an email. It said: 

Brandon,

I couldn’t tell you, but I was about to ask her to marry me.

She said yes!

Xiaoyu Liu's insight:

"Whenever I did a show in the park, Doris would come over and watch for a bit. Then one day, she came up to me, and without having ever spoken to me, handed me a clipping of an article that she'd found about me in The Villager. I thought that was the nicest thing. So I took a photo with her, printed it out, and gave it to her the next day. Then the NEXT day, she brings me ANOTHER set of articles about marionettes. At this point, I'd really started to fall for her. So I thought: 'Doris keeps one-upping me. So I've got to do something really, really nice for her.'"

Xiaoyu Liu's insight:

"He was my first love. We dated for ten days when we were very young, but my mom would not allow the relationship. She told me: 'He's an American, and he's an actor. He'll never make anything of himself.' Then she told me: 'There are millions of men, but I'm your only mother.' She told me to never contact him again, and I listened to her.

She took me to Korea for awhile, and when I came back, I never made contact with him again. I never even gave him an explanation. That was over twenty years ago.

Then four years ago I Googled him. I saw that he was running a theater company. I wrote him a long letter out of the blue, explaining everything. We'd both been married. We both had kids. But here we are-- finally together."
