「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

又到中秋

又到中秋


今年中秋因颱風風尾影響,恐怕沒有明月夜了,補一個給你!



今年中秋在九月廿二日星期三,根據香港政府假期編制,翌日週四才是假期。卻適逢公曆九月廿三,北半球的“秋分”the autumn equinox day,太陽日照正正在赤度之上,以後就日子,會變得日短夜長,慢慢步向北半球的深秋和冬季。


中秋節的”中“,被譯作 "Middle", 顧此中秋節的英文是"Mid Autumn Festival",相信是想說明在中國,秋天已經過了一半的意思罷。但一般卻說”秋分“,才是秋天的開始。


秋天是賞楓的季節,北半球在秋分之後,漸漸轉寒,楓葉轉紅,日本有著名的“紅葉前線”網頁,供給賞楓人士最新資料。而加拿大楓葉國,也有網上和電話報告"Foliage colour change report",提供最新資料。兩地的楓葉我都欣賞過了,再沒有震堪感,不過美好的回憶,還記在心頭上。


人家有說:『外國的月亮比較亮,比較圓!』,但有也人說:『月是故鄉圓!』身處外地的遊子們,有在旅遊公幹中,有移民外國落地生根,你們可有想念故鄉呢?還是拋諸腦後呢?秋天賞楓,而中秋節就是中國人(華裔)賞月的節日。


古人在有明月之夜,都愛把酒賞月,創作有很多詩詞。

李白寫的《月下獨酌》:
舉杯邀明月
對影成三人


李白寫的《古朗月行》:
小時不識月
呼作白玉盤


蘇軾填的《水調歌頭》:
明月幾時有 把酒問青天
人有悲歡離合 月有陰晴圓缺


鮑照作有《朗月行》:
朗月出東山
照我綺窗前


外國人都有吟詠月亮 Moon 的詩作 。。。。。

《The Moon》 by Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886)

The moon was but a chin of gold
A night or two ago,
And now she turns her perfect face
Upon the world below.

Her forehead is of amplest blond;
Her cheek like beryl stone;
Her eye unto the summer dew
The likest I have known.

Her lips of amber never part;
But what must be the smile
Upon her friend she could bestow
Were such her silver will!

And what a privilege to be
But the remotest star!
For certainly her way might pass
Beside your twinkling door.

Her bonnet is the firmament,
The universe her shoe,
The stars the trinkets at her belt,
Her dimities of blue.


不論中外,月到中秋時份,確是份外明亮的罷。今年中秋香港有冇月光呢?照天文臺的預測,恐怕沒有機會見到月兒的踪影,因為受颱風風尾影響,這幾天和晚都有雨及密雲,需要等到週末,才轉到稍為晴朗天氣。


近年我都沒有為自己購買月餅,一向不嗜甜的我,要我吃下整個月餅是件苦事,必要分幾次來吃,猶其是有鹹蛋黃的月餅,我並不懂得欣賞,又鹹又甜,有甚麼好吃呢?


年幼時母親會特別為我,多買一個“純正白蓮蓉月“給我吃,今年自己就連買月餅都慳返,祇為老家送上月餅劵”乙“盒,因為信用卡買的月餅劵有優惠。


謹祝:各位中秋節闔家歡樂!


後記:
中秋節晚上,總算沒有下雨,不過也沒有 Clear Sky,月兒偶然在雲層中露面,祇有朦朧之美罷。 我家的窗外,祇有個大天井,看到天空小小,顧此沒有看到月兒經過。明天就是秋分,秋天來了,我的版面也隨著改成秋色!

I bought one moon cake last week. Just one, not a box. It was so delicious.

Mdm Exile, I guess you have completely finished the ONE moon Cake, and none left for the Mid-Autumn festival night! :)

I believe southern california will have a clear sky moon night on the 22nd. Hoppppppefully you can ENJOY the moon light!

exile said...

You may not believe it. This was the first time I bought moon cake. Yup, it's all gone. I will make it a tradition from now on. I like moon cake a lot. Next year I will buy a whole box!

Mdm Exile, welcome in! At last we had no rain but minimal moon light.

I believe you. However,you need not wait till next year mooncaske festival to get more.

I 100% definitely believe chinese supermarkets have ample supply of moon cakes and they will cut price by 75% tomorrow.


This weekend, YOU may purchase as much as you are able to fill!

Cheers

昨晚(寫時已是凌晨一時)的天氣不錯哦, 我回家時, 抬頭也見朦朧月兒.

在一輪明月的柔和光線下靜靜地欣賞月兒的美態, 我覺得心境平和, 但為什麼月圓之夜又會引發犯罪的欲念呢?

吃月餅都只為應節吧! 傳統月餅多吃無益, 每人只宜吃四分一, 所以這是需要與人分享的食品吖!

今晚我會到大坑追月, 希望天公造美 :)

Oh! Macy 姐追月夜咁又慶致去大坑睇舞火龍麽?


"月圓之夜又會引發犯罪的欲念呢? "

這是犯罪心理學的課題,要專家們解釋解釋嚕。

嘿嘿 said...

空空儿,
还是我们比较懂得赏月,月诗也更好!明月当照时,您在何处???

嘿嘿~

the inner space said...

哈哈哈!嘿嘿兄當晚我沒有出外賞月,舍下之窗外祇是一個大天井,明月沒有見得到,我在何方呢?我在我家中囉!

我沒有到時代廣場,沒有到銅鑼灣一帶聊!沒巧遇到兄臺閣下。。。。。!

I missed completely the Mid Autumn Festival this year :( Obviously, there was no such celebrations in the highland and islands of Scotland

微豆兄:月有圓缺,蘇東坡有謂:
月有陰晴圓缺
千里共嬋娟

你和K雙雙對對遊蘇格蘭高地,月圓月缺都是甜甜蜜蜜一起,當然記不起慶祝中秋和吃月餅嚕。
