事隔多年，我第一次把《命帶追逐》講得這麼清楚，我相信當年並沒想得非常清晰，但的確是那樣的立場，一種對茫然者同情，而不是指責的立場。別人命帶甲，命帶乙，生命自有定見，自有未來，而東清這個人呢（或者是我）？不知怎麼稱他，就說命帶追逐吧，類似自嘲。但《命帶追逐》克服不了一個觀念上的難題，那個答案直到《范保德》才理出來，就是 90%+10% 的事。
我一直意識到生命的重複性，宿命性，但不甘願，不願默默服從。直到現在，我才注意到 90% 的宿命之餘，生命其實存有 10%，充滿無限可能的機會。
Tung-Ching's life has changed since a car accident three months ago. The lifeline on his right hand was scratched off in this incident. A nurse told him that from now on his life is no longer controlled by fate but has become unpredictable.
Three months later, Tung-Ching's father has a stroke and is hospitalized. Because of this, Tung-Ching has to look after the family pawnshop. His girlfriend, Eiko, who is interested in palm reading, wants to retrieve Tung-Ching's lifeline. She wants to know more about his life and future. But Tung-Ching is not interested to know what the future holds so he starts to flirt with one of the female customers. He names her "Know-all".
