I still remember the first time when I heard Kevin Asbjornson playing Awakening on the piano. The image that emerged in my mind was a sun rising slowly from the mountains. Indeed, the communion of melody and rhythm can truly convey images and feelings, and artists who create using the rhythm of nature are like translators of the pulses of nature. Likewise, the interviewee, Li-Min Yin, a Yushan National Park Headquarters guide, is also a translator of creation, and one who has walked into nature and translated feelings in words. Many people have different impressions of Li-Min Yin. She is the author of the Yushan Ecology series and a nature illustrator. However, during the interview, her passion and respect for her role as a guide is clearly evident. Not only is she diligent in her guidance and educational tasks, but she is also committed to using every skill she has to steadily forge a national park image with her colleagues from the park headquarters.
