Every Ending Is A New Beginning
花会开，也必定会凋谢。这是生命永恒不变的定律。从餐馆、历史建筑、时尚、画作、科技产品，甚至是属于这个年代的数码内容，都躲不过凋零的开始。事实上，大地万物的生命从一开始就已经迈向死亡，只是迟早的问题。幸运的是，很多的凋零和结束并不意味着终结，过程当中必定有值得留下的被传承，其中有些被重新塑造，有些被赋予第二生命，有些遗下参考价值，有些永存怀念中。在这道别的最后一个专题，来看看各个领域让人唏嘘的种种凋落，以及让人期待的新的开始。再见只是一个形式，有人说生命结束后仍以灵魂的形式继续存在，就像花谢了以后很快就会在同一枝干上见到新的花蕊，不必太遗憾。别忘了曾经的拥有，珍惜此刻，就拥有永久。 Flowers bloom and flowers wilt. Everything that has a beginning has an ending — this is a fact of life. From restaurants to buildings, IT products to websites, nothing lasts forever. The upside is, the reverse is also true. Goodbyes do not necessarily spell the end. There is always a legacy worth preserving or elements that can be resurrected to give a new lease of life. At the very least, there are fond memories that linger. In our farewell issue, we look back on the various instances in which the curtain fell on a well-known brand, building or business, and also highlight some exciting new beginnings. Goodbye is but a formality. It might be the end of a chapter, but also the start of new adventure, just as how a withered flower is quickly replaced by a fresh bud. What matters is that we cherish all that we have, while we still have them.
