‘Wild Strawberries’ are the future

By Yang Tsui 楊翠

In a statement of transformation issued by the wild strawberries in Greater Taichung in 2008, they used the thorny Taiwan raspberry as a metaphor for their rebirth, saying that they would transform into thorny berries, sticking each and every tiny thorn into every campus and community, and hoping to take root and grow even more wild berries. Four years later, these wild berries are proving that the statement was not an excuse for a retreat. Four years later, as the first cold front hit Taiwan last month, the wild berries were growing everywhere, and the wild strawberry generation was born.

Yang Tsui is an associate professor in the Department of Sinophone Literatures at National Dong Hwa University.
