淳朴

一位旅人常年周游列国, 来到一个淳朴的农村, 被眼前未经历太多人工雕琢的自然景色吸引, 仿佛书中刻画的香格里拉,因此决定留下。

一天,在田边漫步,碰巧遇到稻田的农夫,不经不觉攀谈起来,相谈甚欢,话题也约扯越远。

一时兴起,农夫问:你在大城市习惯享受一切的方便,为什么想留在我们这个偏远的小地方?

旅人不假思索的眼神看向稻田尽头的一抹山峦,偶有几只鸟从林中飞过,这时池塘里的鸭儿发出了几声刺耳的叫声。

“也许是这种简单的人和自然共处的生活方式吧。” 说完之后,看向远处的农舍,再说了几句,就跟农夫道别了。

One Year


Stay in a place for a year
What have you learnt
What have you done
Who did you meet
Where have you been
So many questions pop in and pop out of the frame of mind

Perhaps too many things to review and to reflect
Perhaps stubbornly don't want to think, just yet
Perhaps is too tired of any thinking
Perhaps there is no room for thinking when the only thing to do and to think of is running out of here......

Just here and now
Seizing the moment
A sinking soul is reaching for shore......

As

Cicada buzzing in summer......
Old man jogging in the park......
Old lady exercising on the wooden plank pathway......
Mather seeing her child getting on to the nursery coach......
Aroma of baked sweet potatoes across the street......
On the ride of the bus listening to musics the bus driver were playing on the loudspeaker......
The van cart selling Taiwanese Onigiri by the side of the road......
While waiting for the bus, a girl was saying 'in the same universe'......

A line can form many possibilities
Draw on
The never ending story

In the mist of mind home is so near and yet so far
In the mist of mind a bridge linking lands and ferries sailing behind
In the mist of mind the smell of betel palm and roti canai
In the mist of mind a group of children swinging on a bench garden swing
In the mist of mind the taste of pokok ciku and a pokok ciku tree

Gathering all stuffs and time to walk on a new road
How many times have I went through this process of gathering and moving
Countless
About the same time last year and now once more
Just want to find a place to stay on

Fair and Square


Two of my favorite things in the world, a chocolate bar and a laptop computer, can you see the resemblance?

Lost in time

Presumably it happens to you too. You thought that you know but you don't, you thought that it will come out right but it keeps hiding from you. So what would you do?


步鞋
5年了
穿你走东走西
已5年了
时间一脚印一脚印走过
尘土在你身上留下足迹

每穿上你就能很洒脱的迈开步伐
展开新旅程

然后有一天  发现
你身上像皮纸层层剥落
颜色由深变沉

如何是好
没你作伴

还要持续走下去
原来 
真正的拥有 
是在学会放开之后

Timeless Tofu

Chou Doufu or Stinky Tofu(臭豆腐) 

When it comes to smell there is no other food like Chou Doufu. Walking down the street the other day, suddenly a strong odor struck normal senses. Following the smell down the road, saw a queue in front of a hawker stall selling Stinky Tofu. Got in the queue and bought a plate. It was all so familiar, suddenly memory brought me back to the sweet old days.

人生的滋味

好久没吃台湾的泡面  到便利商店买了一杯
泡开了 吃了  也满足了

甜  谈  浓  烈  厚  重  轻  巧
各自品尝  各自体会

相对的  幸福的滋味又是什么
最近的体会  能付诸行动去做想做的事  就是幸福
尤其在尝过了一杯 ‘环岛可可’
一位年轻人勇敢追求梦想
以行动证明生命的意义
原来可以充满了正面的感染力

一杯很容易冲泡的可可
简单的原料  可可粉  奶粉  黑糖  燕麦

喝着  厚厚的  浓浓的可可  很顺口
喝出是好原料

买时年轻老板很认真冲泡  一杯又一杯的可可
他在台中中兴大学旁的摊位  只逗留 4 天
据他说还没有决定下一个点会在那里
目标是用一年的时间环岛  同时以卖可可饮品  赚取费用

很有想法  很有创意
计划有了  成本有了
他也行动了

看着长长的  排队买可可的人群
一杯普通的冷/热可可
售价50块
可是大家都付的很甘愿
因为喝出好滋味  喝出诚意
一杯不起眼的热可可  瞬间感受到它不一样的价值

在他黑板式的告示牌上记录着
100 / 1年
STOP 24  中兴大学

他叫黄书韦

有时候的独行

Watercress  豆瓣花

不知道从什么时候开始
喜欢独自去做许多事
购物  看电影  喝咖啡  等等
不是不合群
只是想静静的
让心绪回归平坦

入冬


冬季的台中
气温大概在 13º - 15º C
短衬衫  内着棉质长袖保暖卫生衣  棉质小外套  再来御寒大外套  围巾
这 4 层的防御衣  另外 2 层的长裤
还保暖

下班后  步行到车站
晚风冷飕飕  瑟缩着

大卖场 ‘補货’ 出来
就在对面的豆浆店 ‘祭祭五脏庙’
一点都不怪
今天晚餐来碗咸豆浆和白馒头

回台后  特爱这种传统早餐轻食组合
24 小时营业的豆浆店也蛮好找
所以不分时段  随时可以买到

热腾腾的豆浆下肚
身体也暖和起来




想家的游子

人生有半数以上过着异乡人的生活
不知道什么叫 ‘扎根’

有人说  身处在那既为根
何其洒脱  随性
有四海为家广阔的胸怀

台湾  算是半个家乡吧
也用了些时间重新适应  新环境

独处时  时常会想起 4 年在马的日子
以为就此落地生根
可是又再次披上外衣  漂泊去
还好是回到妈妈的家乡

这乐天的性子
期许  一切  吉祥如意

也祝福  在海的彼端的家人  朋友
生活愉快  幸福
