Big Bugi

This world has always convinced us of what a person should look like, but both gods and demons exist in people’s hearts regardless of their appearance.

My mother is gradually fading away like a new moon, while my father is like a sun that is about to collapse into a black hole. 

My mother is currently in the end stage of Parkinson’s disease, and my father may also be showing signs of delirium. 

Since I was young, I have had scoliosis, pelvic tilt, and weak back muscles, resulting in a long-term hunchback. 

After the onset of cataracts, many eye diseases also appeared. Long-term anxiety often affects my digestive system and sleep. 

Every day that used to be taken for granted has become a struggle for survival.

Headaches, eye problems, heart problems, digestive problems, and body aches are all part of my daily life. 

It’s like incompatible software and hardware that can never run smoothly.

Perhaps I just want to return to my alien appearance. If I see something different, I don’t have to keep seeking approval.

Planting flowers and plants with a handful of soil can also be a comfort, hoping that one day I can return home.

TAIWANfest Vancouver is grateful to be held on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam Indian Band), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish Nation), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation). We acknowledge our privilege to be gathered here, and commit to work with and be respectful to the Indigenous peoples of this land while we engage in meaningful conversations of culture and reconciliation.
