New Year

作为中国人不错,一年有两个新年。此外,一个中国人还有一个属相,一个星座。一个七夕,一个情人节。似乎这世界不够复杂。我们要让它更复杂些。一个阳历的生日,一个农历的生日。

晚上和Sean吃饭。他说,将来的12个月对他忽然间变得很重要。然后,他拿起个望远镜,走到他家的后院,说,你一定要看下火星,这是几十年来最亮的一次。他说,你可以看到木星的几颗卫星,你也可以看到我们银河星系之外的另外一个星系,椭圆的形状。他说,每次我实在受不了的时候,我看着这空旷寂寞的宇宙,就觉得眼前的事都没什么了。就好些了。就都简单了。

就一个生日,一个节日,一个新年。

夜空漆黑,远远的一明一灭的,我说,啊,那是飞机的航灯。但加州的夜里,有真正的星空。星空闪烁,Orion’s Belt, 天空中火星之外唯一的另一颗红色星星。

想起希腊。极深的夜了,古堡酒店里,安静得仿佛是3百年前奥斯曼土耳其人将要攻下城堡的屏息时刻,那一条横贯过蓝黑色夜空的银河,也许是喝了几杯Guapa和希腊红酒的缘故,也许是极致的感触后忽然的飘飘荡荡。满天星斗,银河灿烂,空气湿润而温暖。身体几乎要浮起融化到弥漫的星光中。在这世界中,又在这世界之外。

我们各自想着各自的想法。对着加州的夜空。然后,Sean走进房间,说,另外一件让我觉得好些的,是我的孩子们。6个。最小的,只有6个星期大的小孩。

我从来没想过,有一天这地方居然会这么熟悉。也许就像是我从来没想过上海、北京,有一天居然也是这么熟悉。

地球再小,我也脱不出引力的作用。

回来的路上,在旧金山湾边开过,喝了大半瓶的红酒了,却越发清醒。

忽然想起波斯大帝Cyrus the Great的墓碑上,他给自己留下的,写着:

O man, whoever you are and wherever you come from, for I know you will come, I am Cyrus who won the Persians their empire. Do not therefore begrudge me this bit of earth that covers my bones.

在这儿,我不那么寂寞些。

  1. 小时候看《贝多芬》,印象最深的镜头是他漂在映满繁星的湖面上,同宇宙融为一体。物质和精神之外,人还有一个性灵的世界,而这个世界是空洞的话,就会孤独。但是骄傲的人常常被骄傲遮住了眼睛,特别是知识分子,对很多近在身旁的真理却熟视无睹。所以说“骄傲是最大的罪恶”。我不是教徒,但是很同意这句话。《约翰.克立斯多夫》里,舅舅带他第一次领略到大自然的美好时,他也第一次发现舅舅原来一点也不平庸。

  2. 很偶然的机会来到这里,发现挺有意思。
    有的文字云淡风轻的幽默生动,有的文字发散的想象,有的文字还有些岩井俊二的风格,有的文字套用一句名言“直面惨淡的人生”。。。驾御能力着实了得。所以忍不住第一次在陌生人的地盘上留下了自己的爪印。原来就是土豆的那个王微,不容易!
    新年如意!还有,很喜欢你这个页面,简单明了,不用在一堆花里胡哨中寻觅,新年加油哦

  3. 怎么说呢,可能是我智商的问题,对于此类题材的文章真的没能完全读懂,只是朦朦胧胧之间意会一点,自己一个人的时候简单些,一个人的时候或许就更能清醒些

  4. 很高兴看到土豆王在那一个地方, 那一个very moment 不寂寞。真希望你看到的那灿烂银河,不止只在希腊古堡的夜空中悬挂着。总算,牛年过去了。。。虎年快乐。。。

  5. 文青气质的稀有男性动物!

    广袤的太阳系,璀璨的银河系,乃至浩瀚的宇宙都令我们感到孤独。

    或许人果真是地球的寄居者,因为有一个亘古存在却不曾看到的故乡,令我们魂牵梦萦。

  6. 唉,自从无意间在学校里的超市里读了一本王微的书,
    至今没明白怎么会在一个食品超市里见到这么类型的书
    这个博客看了一年多了,一直在看
    看着看着…….
    就有点那个什么情绪了…….

    其实楼上的esther和zeus说的我都认同

  7. 喜欢这句话—每次我实在受不了的时候,我看着这空旷寂寞的宇宙,就觉得眼前的事都没什么了。就好些了。就都简单了。
    因为深有同感!

  8. 今天!

    完全因为一个工作路过你的博客,非常喜欢的说!

    我准备以后,象你一样的这样生活~此处无声胜有声,也许以后我也会有博客,一起发现体会美好生活~

    向土豆里的王微学习!!!

  9. 读了许多书,精神才会这么自由。。。

    赚了许多钱,肉体才会这么自由。。。

    但能这样随心随性的发现美,你算一个。。。

    我准备从今天开始,我要象你这样的生活。。。如果不能走到旧金山湾,也不能喝古堡红酒。。。那我就带着小瓶二锅头,坐在夜空下的黄浦江边或者杭州的西湖边上,喝几口,然后仰头哼哼好听地歌。。。

  10. 由于工作的原因,今天只能草草的看了一篇半篇。。。

    收藏了的说,以后有空再上来看看。。。

    希望你也持续更新,并不断的写些有趣的有意思的东西,和我们大家一起心灵共振~我们也会给你留言,这样你会发现,其实你也不孤独,我们都在善良的关注你。。。

    其实我今天刚知道你,以后有空在网上再搜搜你的传奇故事。。。
