In the flash of an eye, Lavender Country has passed the half-year mark, serving its readers with fun tidbits, heart-melting anecdotes and inspirational stories along the way for the past six months. Let's take a look at our top five most-read articles so far:
In fifth position is Sweeping Away Fallen Leaves .... and Nightly Blues... : love blossoms quietly amid fallen leaves. A piece on the surprisingly sedative effects of cleaning. Self-help can be available at just the tips of our fingers.
Tying for fourth place are 手帕般的邂逅 A Kind of Meeting Like a Handkerchief and The Story Behind Lavender Country . The kinds of relationships that feed on us like parasites, in contrast to those that nurture us - in other words, relationships that should not be held illusions of and relationships that should be held close to heart; and the motivation behind this website, along with the atmosphere it aspires to evoke.
For runner-up, we have Why haven't we seen them? 为何没看见？: Another romantic piece, this time inspired by two people who were once equally pure and innocent at heart. An essay on life's oft-neglected simple pleasures and a reminder to stop and smell the roses.
Finally, *drum roll* at the top place is ....
A Tale of Two Rats ! A pair of star-crossed rodent lovers, or so it seems. Tribulation sometimes acts out only in our minds.
It looks like The Story Behind Lavender Country is the only post without a romance element. We sure need a dose of enchanting love - that which transforms our souls and uplift our spirits - in our lives.
