讓我傾聽萬籟寂靜無聲


"The Sound Of Silence" - ART GARFUNKEL
(Paul Simon)

 
Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.
"Fools" said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed
In the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets
are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls."
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.

破事兒是什麼事兒?



  
修身、齊家、治國、平天下...

一切、從破事兒開始...

 
七情六慾...

柴米油鹽醬醋茶...

洗衫掃地...

大人物小嘍囉,人生都是由破事兒開始...


 * * *


人生,由很多尋常生活的微不足道的[破事兒]組成。

這些[破事兒],雖似無關生活上的宏旨,
但一件[破事兒]的發生,
可能帶來生活上的重大轉折...


* * *


而生活上的一些重大轉折,
放遠來看,也其實是漫長人生中的一些[破事兒]!

大事小事,原是心事而已...


 * * *


Take it easy~

AABB --AA Baby

最近有新聞報導,說一對戀人互相打鬥,
最後要警方現場處理紛爭。

這場紛爭是男方想請吃飯,

而女方堅持AA制付款而引起的。

對於我們香港人來說,在支付賬單時,
AA制的意思是平均付款,

是“All Average”或“Arithmetic Average”的縮寫。

這個女士,是AA制的忠實信徒!

要給她一個有代表性的名字:“AA Baby” (AABB)!



用英語,每人支付他/她的平均份額,

所用的術語是“Going Dutch”。


有些人想別人請吃飯,

但總是有一些不想欠人人情。


是的,不想欠人人情就不用在以後要還人情。

大家都知道,

一般正常的社交活動真的沒有“免費午餐”的!

走著瞧人~


Rodriguez - To Whom It May Concern



Don't sit and wait
Don't sit and dream
Put on a smile
Go find a scene
I'm sure you'd meet
Someone who would really love you
Don't sit and hope
Don't sit and pine
If you've been hurt
Make up your mind
I'm sure you'd find
Someone who would really love you
I don't know why you sit around
I only know if love is gone
Don't sit alone with your pride
To whom this may concern to say
Don't wait for love to come your way
Don't waste your time
Make up your mind
And make it happen
I don't know why you sit around
I only know if love is gone
Don't sit alone with your pride
Listen to me and you would see
Just how fine your romance could be
I don't know why you sit around
I only know if love is gone
Don't sit alone with your pride
Listen to me and you would see
Just how fine your romance could be
