looking forward & looking back to…

去年聖誕,出席了本地“爵士教父”Jeremy Monteiro的演奏/演唱會。這次,Jeremy終于請動了來自美國的好友Tuck & Patti(爵士屆的夫妻檔)。 Tuck的吉他伴著Patti美妙的中低音,讓我十分陶醉…… Music aside,其實我對Tuck說的一句話留下非常深刻的印象。他說他非常期盼演出的到來,數個月前就希望演出天快點到來。可是,不知不覺地,“那一天”就這樣到來了……幾個月的等待、期盼、練習,一轉眼就過去了。 “I’ve been looking forward to this concert, & the next second, I’m looking back at it…” 人生就是這樣,we always look forward to something,& in no time (or in the next second),we’re looking back… 珍惜。

trust me, I’m not a workaholic

I have this quote written on my yahoo group’s main page: “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work” I always believe, being passionate & responsible is not equivalent to workaholic.




累。 要不是生了一場大病,大掃除就不會那麽吃力啦。 我發現,年紀越大,越學會“看開”和“放下”,大事不說,就拿大掃除來説,有很多往年都不捨得丟的東西,就是那些所謂的“紀念價值很高”的東西(譬如:美麗的海報、獎盃、一直欺騙自己瘦下來可以穿的衣服等等……),都一一忍痛丟掉/給人啦。每年單單要抹灰塵,就耗盡我所有的精力!因此,我終于決定,長痛不如短痛…… Anyway,迎接鼠年那一刻,竟然打翻了一個咖啡玻璃瓶!碎片飛到兩個房間和飯廳的各各角落,媽媽不幸踩到2個,割傷腳板和膝蓋……完全影響了我們原本還蠻愉快的心情…… 唉。 初一向BZ“訴苦”,告訴她我的狗狗Meeko去動了個小手術,結果它不聽話,把縫在傷口的綫咬掉,再帶回診所縫針,它再次把綫咬斷!!我跟媽媽兩人都差點崩潰!迎接新年的過程,爲了我的病、煩人的大掃除和Meeko的事情已經快瘋掉了,在倒數那刻打破玻璃瓶一事將整個不快樂帶到最高點!BZ聼了,安慰我說:“這是年關來的,只要過了,一年下來都不會有更難熬的事情,因爲你已經歷最難的挑戰了。去年我過年時摔斷腿,心情跌到谷底,我也是如此安慰自己。And it’s quite true……我覺得我痊愈后,一切都還蠻順利的。” 聼了這番話,心情馬上好轉。心情的好壞,自己決定!Well,I’m trapped in my own unhappiness…我要跳出來! 晚上,決定約幾個好友聊天,大家談笑風生,什麽不快樂都把它遠遠地抛在腦后。 聊著聊著,聊起兩年前VK在某囯公幹時買的眼藥水,大家開始笑到不行!!See it for yourself!不可思議的眼藥水!! 大年初一頭一天,我還是開心度過!
