「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

旅程NK歸途

旅程NK歸途






在我不久前的舊文:閑遊東京(3)羊羹 ようかん,提過我特別專程到 世田谷區千歲烏山 拜訪的一位先輩,前天他來一封電郵,告知他的百歲母親,在鄉下突然去世,要趕回去奔喪!





我上次跟先輩回鄉時,也曾見過這一位百歲人瑞,當年她都已經九十多歲了,雖然耳聾但聲如洪鐘,胃口也很好,並吃過了我送上的食物。


與他的兒子我的先輩,就在老家中切了多款羊羹,與全體家人坐在榻榻米上,圍成一圈一起吃羊羹又喝茶,還是歷歷在目。





她的突然去世,真有點意想不到,因為上次去探先輩,都說她狀況頗佳!但是不竟得享壽上百歲,也可算是“笑喪”,希望這位先輩和他的家人節哀順變,早日恢復過來!


再次祝福這位老人家:安息! Rest in Peace!
