「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

兩餐一宿



一 生 何 求?


舊 時 有 好 多 要 求。




不是 MTV 祇是聽歌的”你喉“




陳百強《一生何求》

冷暖那可休 回頭多少個秋
尋遍了卻偏失去 未盼卻在手
我得到沒有 沒法解釋得失錯漏
剛剛聽到望到便更改
不知那裡追究

一生何求 常判決放棄與擁有
耗盡我這一生 觸不到已跑開
一生何求 迷惘裡永遠看不透
沒料到我所失的竟已是我的所有

一生何求 曾妥協也試過苦鬥
夢內每點繽紛 一消散那可收
一生何求 誰計較贊美與詛咒
沒料到我所失的竟已是我的所有


E+ 但 求 兩 餐 一 宿!


可 否 再 回 頭 呢?



暫時不能,


我簽落不少人生的合約 Contract(s)!


要等 XX年 or more 之後,我要供養父母!


又起碼要多等 YY年,我的供樓合約還有 YY年!


還有。。。ZZZ年這些,還有。。。。XYZ年那些 !


人 生 有 太 多 的

身 不 由 己!

好好好好的一篇,
很有感覺的一篇,
終於感覺到你的感情了,
大家都是打工仔,
生活磨人,
一起努力吧!

連結了你這篇!

新鮮兄:就我文中說的人生合約,我雖已經力求簡單,情情塔塔的夫妻之約我沒有,更沒有教養兒女之責。但已墮入塵網中,還是有剩下的約,羈絆著我一身,縱想力求簡單,祇求兩餐一宿,暫時也沒有可能。

唉!一生何求?

新鮮人 said...

除了看結果,
也要享受其中的過程,
人生才無悔!

人生合約? 簡單?


Have you watched "Cast Away" by Tom Hanks? Is that how you envision a perfect simple life? :-)

新鮮兄:做人做事是不能不顧後果的!

Exile, Cast Away 是流落荒島,要靠魚獵為生,住山洞曠野。我想要的是“兩餐一宿”,是清茶淡飯,還有瓦遮頭。應該較像陶淵明的:『結廬在人境,而無車馬喧。採菊東籬下、悠然見南山!』

Do you still remember this poem?

My youth winged and soared above the earth;
My soul whispered its dreams amongst the hills.
I didn't see it coming, this fallen angel of habit;
Till it was too late, thirty years hence.

Exile,I have no memory about Woodstock (educate me why it is related to rebel, please!) except I heard Ang LEE 's has a new movie called "Taking Woodstock".

Woodstock wasn't just a concert. It took place at the time when young boomers became teens.

Back in the 50's when baby boomers were young children, the idealized suburban family was one where the mother stayed home and the father was the authority figure. Everyone had a role to play. Like the hit TV show "Leave it to Beaver". America was still very traditional and repressive then. Politicians liked to keep it that way. Even now, conservative describe the rebellious 60's as "the counter cultural and political movements that were out of step with the American mainstream".

A lot of people believe that Woodstock set stage for the later civil right movement, demonstration against the Vietnam War and women's liberation. In the 60's, women were finally encouraged to go back to work and make money. Traditional family value was under big transformation. Also with birth control, women felt free for the first time to experience with their sexuality.

Many boomers (now in their 50's and 60's) recalled the spirit and the excitement at Woodstock, rejoiced that they weren't alone in their frustrations.

Most people live the kind of life society tells us to. I see a lot of that among the Chinese. It is good and it serves its purpose but it is not without cost. Woodstock was a symbol if nothing else that we should live the life we want, not what others tell us.

Oh ! Exile thank you for educating me about Woodstock spirit.

I only knew it was "No war Make love", "Peace", "Hippies", "Marijuana” in the 60s.
