    Venue: New Asia College Ch'ien Mu Library
    Statement:
    "Harsh Heat" — I have learnt at a young age that Water Ghosts are the most ferocious. If I were to become a ghost amidst the vast Summer sea, I would probably, in days reeking of sweat, slam heads against walls with brute force, sing hymns in Japanese at the top of lungs, sanitize wounds with brute force, murmur prayers in Spanish at the top of lungs, hold “good morning” towels tight within palms with brute force, and while petting doggies with tears running down boiling cheeks, make a scene.
