永远对你为微笑

  前言:

  在异乡的岁月,也交到了许多朋友,有和我 一样海外漂泊的留学生与职场上的白领,也有很 多别具特色的外国朋友。而从我的故事展开,猛拿大哥, Scott叔叔,芷云,卡门,达尔文,吉拉德,西亚,珍妮太太,玛纳斯 也渐渐走入了我的笔下,呈现出 活灵活现生动的情景剧。


  我喜欢书信的交流,文字有 时候可以表达出和语言不一样的效果,和人写信时,抱着一种坦诚,谦逊,喜悦与淡然,将情感倾泻于指尖,对我来 说就是一种享受。


  达尔文 是我在暑假实习时对我很特别的一位老人,他本身 也是美国的一名业余作家,他十分智慧,我一直 很希望有机会写一个关于他的故事,而他对 我人生的启迪也是莫大的,他鼓励 着年轻懵懂莽撞的我,让我在 职业与学业上成长。


  每次读到他的邮件,我的嘴 角都会回微笑起来。为何不 把这些书信保留下来?他们也是真实的我们,情感的存在。


  虽然最 近情绪有些忧郁,心灵受 到了不小的创伤,工作学业压力大,身体有 日渐消瘦的趋势,但是读到友人的信,我的心 里又会重新燃烧起希冀,我知道我并不孤独。


  PS: 今天收 到了匿名情书一封哦!然后还 有几个朋友送我的小礼物。谢谢你们,我的内 心永远充满着感激。我知道,我是幸运的,也是幸福快乐的。希望也 能够同时将我的快乐与身边的人分享,将这份 幸福弥漫在人间。

  Dear Darwin:


  I was so used to say good morning to you every day in the morning. Today, I woke up at 5 in the morning again, but then I realized that I was in Purdue University already. I think I miss Houston, especially when I arrived at Chicago yesterday. The city which I was very familiar with became a strange city suddenly. This summer has been a very rewarding, precious summer for me. I learn a lot of new things, on the job or life experience, most importantly, nice intelligent people. Hard work is good work, then when I face new challenges, I would be confident to take it and push my boundaries. It makes me very happy.

  I arrived at Chicago at 3 in the afternoon yesterday, I had to check 2 bags (I promise I am not a shopper but when I came here I only had 1,haha...) Then I did a lot of photography in Chicago. The city is in its best time in the transition of summer to fall, before it gets too windy.

  Today I did a tour for some international students and parents, school life is more casual and less structural, but it also needs a lot of devotion. I am now cleaning my new dorm and try to organize things and do some decorations. After I have finished this room project which probably takes 2 weeks, I will send you some photos ^_^

  I always have people asking me why I was so busy. Then I started to think, hmm, I should be better, so I can be able to manage all the lists without look busy. I think the reason for keeping busy is to be happy I guess, the more you travel the more you want to see, the more you can handle the more challenges you want to take, however, after a while, take a break, spend some quality time with friends and family, and let your soul catch your body a little bit is important to balance your work and life.

  Time for bed I think I will continue unpacking tomorrow.

  Have a nice day!

  PS: If the yahoo email works, I will always use that email address for sending you emails. No worries!


  Best wishes,


  Sincerely,

  Summer

  亲爱的达尔文:


  在过去那段岁月里,我总是 习惯了每天早上对你说:早安。而今天,当我又 一次五点钟醒来,发现自 己已经从休斯敦回到了普渡大学。我想念着休斯敦,特别是 当我昨天到达芝加哥,这座我 曾经熟悉的城市,忽然变得异常地陌生。这是一 个对我十分珍贵的夏天,我学到了许多新知,工作和生活上的经验,更重要的是,善良的,聪慧的人们。想要有好的成果,就要努力工作,这样,如果你 遇到了新的挑战,就会自 信地去接受挑战,并且不断突破自己。不断战胜自己,让我快乐无比。


  昨日下午3点,我抵达了芝加哥,却发现 需要托运两个大箱子(我保证 我一定不是个购物狂,但是从 芝加哥飞到休斯敦的时候却只有一个箱子,哈哈。。。) 在芝加哥,我照了 很多精彩的照片,夏末秋初的时候,是芝加哥最美的时节,狂风还 没有来得及侵袭,一切都平静如洗。


  今天我 带领了一些留学生和他们的父母逛校园,校园生 活没有那么结构清晰,更多生动有趣,但是也 需要很多辛苦耕耘。我开始 清理我的新宿舍,尝试着整理物品,并且装饰小家。等我两 周后彻底完成了我的小屋计划,我会给你发照片的!^_^


  常常有人问我,为什么 要让自己这么忙碌。这个时候,我会思索,恩,我应该变得更加优秀,才可以 完成所有的工作而看上去依旧安闲自如。有时候我想,也许我 想让自己忙碌的原因是,追寻快乐的境界,忙中有闲,闲中有忙,便乐在其中。正如旅行,你走得越多,便想要 看到更多的风景;正如挑战,你自身越强大,你就更 加愿意接受新的挑战。不过,在工作之余,小憩一会儿,花一些 时间陪陪朋友和家人,然后让 灵魂渐渐地赶上你的身体,寻找到一种平衡。


  夜深了,我也需要早些睡,明日继续清理行囊。


  祝你今 天有一个好心情哦!


  附: 如果雅 虎邮箱能够收到,我会一 直将邮箱发到您的私信箱中的!勿念!


  此致,

  敬礼!


  您真诚的,


  夏天

  八月五日

  Summer,


  Good to hear that you arrived safely; it’s a small trip compared with coming alone from China. I traveled internationally for years and going to any city in the world becomes easy and normal in time. I got both copies of your email so you can send to either address in the future. I have already missed your good morning greeting and afternoon conversations. Sounds like you are already very busy as you said you expected. I am sure all will go well because you are so capable. Scott departed to Australia last Friday for his permanent assignment there. Dan will leave in a few weeks if his visa is granted; our group here in Houston has and will continue to get smaller. At this time I just wanted to respond. I’ll write you again. Bye for now.

  夏天,


  很开心 你平安抵达学校!其实比 起当初你一个人从中国到达美国,来往于 休斯敦与芝加哥,只是一 段很微小的旅程。因为工作原因,我长年环球旅行,因此现 在再去世界上任何一座城市,都变得简单与平凡,世界因 为你的步伐而缩小,你因为 你的步伐而成长。我在公 司邮箱和私信箱都收到了你的邮件,所以可 以寄到任一一个。


  最近我 也十分想念你每天早上微笑着对我说早安,我怀念 这你我工作之后下午的对话。读你的信,可见你 已经如你预料地开始投入校园生活。我坚信 你一定能够做好的,因为你很棒,很有能力。斯科特先生(夏天注:不是斯科特叔叔,杭州翻译公司,而是本 次暑假实习的部门经理)上个星 期五从休斯敦公司飞往了澳大利亚施工现场。丹尼尔签证办好后,也将在 几个星期之后准备离开。我们在 休斯敦的团队只会越来越小。


  在此,请原谅我的文笔仓促,我只是想早些回复你。我会继 续与你书信往来。


  暂别!

  Dear Darwin:Good afternoon.

  Sorry for taking so long to write to you after back to school. Actually school starts officially today(August 22nd, Monday), from August 4th to August 21st, I had more than two weeks of Resident Assistant Training, enhancing building up community, socialize with all the resident halls on campus. I will send you some photos later.

  There are a lot of students checking in early, so my voluntary work at the ISS (International Student Scholar) was busy as well. I did floor decoration for 40 girls on my floor, had the first floor meeting with them, did kitchen training with them and got started with the new semester. I slept at 2am and got up at 7 everyday for the past two weeks. I am happy that I really enjoyed it.

  I am going to roll-up my sleeves, and get ready to dig in, because it is going to be an exciting year. I think the more energy you put into your work the more rewarding the experience will be.

  How are you recently? I miss you often, you are so nice to me.

  Please take care and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

  Sincerely, Summer

  亲爱的达尔文:


  下午好!


  对不起 返校后这么久才给你写信。其实八 月二十二日才正式开学,而从八 月四日到八月二十一日,我进行 了两周的宿舍管理员的训练,来强化我建设团队,社区的能力,和所有的住户社交,并且与 校园里的其他宿舍建立人际网络。


  我会给 你寄一些近期我的照片的!


  有很多 新来的留学生提前报道,所以我 在留学生协会的志愿者工作变得十分忙碌。今天我完成了为40个女孩 子设计门牌名片,得工作,将楼道 挂满了书画和海报作为装饰,帮楼里 的成员进行厨房训练,还要为 新学期做做规划。这两个星期以来,我每天凌晨两点才睡,早上7点就起床,开心的是,我很享受这样的生活。


  我打算挽起袖子,开始辛勤耕耘,因为这 将会是一个精彩的一年。我相信 你在工作中投入多大的能量,你就能 从工作经历中收获多少。


  最近的你,还好么?


  我常常想念着你,杭州翻译,因为你对我很好。


  请保重自己,也期待你的回信。


  您真诚的,


  夏天

  Summer,


  So nice to hear from you. Every day I think of you; I see the little fish you put on the cup and it makes me smile; Sometimes the small things have the most value.


  Being busy is not a bad thing, but you do need to get your sleep or in time it will wear on you physically and mentally. I am not your keeper, but I boldly suggest 6 hours of sleep as a minimum. You wrote on the cup Love Work Study Life and I sometimes ponder the purity of your philosophy. I believe Faith Hope Love is essential in Life. But of course money is indispensible! Ha! I looked up the Chinese characters for these words and I really like the one for Hope. In western society Love is said to be the greatest but somehow I think that Hope is the most important to be happy. Work( and study is work too) together with Hope and a bit of luck will bring happiness and probably that which is indispensible. Faith is also very important and it has many faces in our physical, mental, and spiritual lives and the persons within us. Who are you talking to when you have conversations in your mind? Do you think the secrets of life may actually be what we already know? You will work diligently and this will complement everything in your life, but all of our persons must be nourished so don’t be too busy for your art and appreciation for the art in nature; it is free and yet so very valuable. I think you may already know these things better than I. I did learn many things for you and I could see your goodness and wisdom and this increased my faith and hope.

  I am glad to hear you are doing fine and that you are looking forward to the school year. I am also at least content. I went home for 4 days August 11-14 and that was refreshing. My daughter came from California and it was nice to visit together. We went to our river place and had lunch on our dock. Sometimes there are dolphins in the river, but we saw none on that day. They come and go as they please, but usually travel in groups as they are social creatures like people. People sometimes frown but dolphins always smile like the one on the cup. I try to smile too and I have faith that you are smiling just now.

  夏天,


  收到你 的来信真的很开心。我每天都在思念着你,每当我 看到你画的那可爱的热带鱼,在制作 给我的笔筒杯子上自由欢快地游泳,我就会不自觉地微笑。有时候人与人之间,就因为这样一些小事,却有着最大的价值。


  忙碌不是一件坏事,但是你 的确需要多睡一下!不然久而久之,在身体 上和精神上你都回感觉到很多压力。我不是你的保姆,但是我 斗胆强烈建议你每天至少保证六个小时的睡眠!


  你在杯子上写着: 爱,工作,学习与生活。我有时 候会对你的人生哲学停下来思考一阵子。我认为信念,希望与 爱是生命的关键。当然,正如你曾经告诉我的,金钱也是不可取代的(夏天:转自简 奥斯丁 的小说中的一句)哈哈!你说得很对!我查找 到了这几个字的中文汉字,我发现 我最喜欢的中文汉字组词是: 希望。在西方社会,爱被尊为最伟大的,但是有 时候我觉得希望是获得幸福最重要的一步。工作(当然学习也是工作)加上希望,再加上一些运气,将幸福锁住,而那种幸福,也是不可取代的。信念也是很重要的,它存在于我们的身体,灵魂和精神生活,还有我们人体里。试想,当您的 脑海中有一段对话,你在和谁聊天呢?你会不 会觉得生命的秘密也许正生长在我们已经了解到的领域里?你会在 人生的旅途中有许多生活,因为你 勤奋努力地工作。而对艺术的执着,对大自然的神往,让我们 变得立体与丰满,不那么 庸庸碌碌人云亦云。自然与 艺术是上天赐予我们免费的礼物,我觉得 你已经比我更加了解这个境界。为了你,我也开 始更多地了解艺术与哲学,因为喜 欢和一个戴着思索火花的小女孩聊天,我可以 看到你的善良与智慧,而那些,坚定了我的信念,播种了希望的种子。


  我很开 心你最近过得很好而且你也很期待新的学年。我最近还算差强人意。从八月 十一日到八月十四日我回家(PS: 达尔文 的家在弗罗里达)了四天 来放松一下自己。我的女 儿从加州来看我,我很满足。我们去 了离家不远处的河边,在船坞上吃午餐。有时候河里有海豚(我曾经 告诉达尔文我最喜欢的动物是海豚),但那一天,却不见一只。他们来去自如,但是通常集体活动,他们和 人类一样都是社交动物。不同的是,人类常常皱眉,而海豚 永远是微笑着的,正如你 送给我的杯子上你精心绘制的海豚。我总是努力地微笑,并且也相信,当你读 到我这封信的时候你也露出了甜美的笑容。

  Dear Darwin: Here are some of my photos for the recent two weeks! Best Regards, Summer08/24/11


  亲爱的达尔文:


  这些是 我近两个月的照片哦!


  最好的祝愿,


  夏天


  八月二十四日


  Summer,


  Thank you for the pictures. I like the one with the butterfly in your hands the most.

  Well, I suppose you are busy with new studies by now and the exciting times you predicted. Things here in the office change slowly, but a major change was the departure of John MacKay. He left this past week to go to the jobsite in Australia. He is taking 2 weeks holiday with his family in Holland before going on to Australia. Hopefully he can keep all the work on schedule. I have moved into John’s office now. That is a surprise to me. I’m in the office today just to write an expense report and catch up on a few things like writing this note to you. Yesterday I drove to a friend’s home about 20 miles north of Houston. He and his wife live in Saudi Arabia but were home for a holiday. I have not seen my friend since 1998 though we sometimes talk by phone. They fed me lunch and we walked around their 5 acre property and talked. It was nice to meet again. On the drive back to my apartment I noticed the temperature was 111 degrees F. That is hot; I think it is the hottest day we have had all summer. I hope Summer is cooler in Indiana!


  Dolphin still smiling; me too.

  08/28/11


  夏天,


  谢谢你的照片,我最喜 欢你手捧着蝴蝶的那一张。


     对了,我猜想 你一定开始紧张地投入新课程的学习,并且如你所愿,每天都特别振奋。在休斯 敦办公室里的生活没有多大的变化,但最近的改变却是John MacKay (夏天注:John 是项目经理,是Scott的上司,Scott 是我们部门的头~~)上一周 离开了休斯敦总部去往澳大利亚的施工现场。他现在 正在和他的家人一起享受两周的假期。希望他 能够保持工作的进度。而我也搬进了John的办公室,这样的 升职让我也有些惊讶。今天我 来到办公室需要完成一份项目支出报告,并且更 多地完成工作进度,比如说和你写信。


  昨天我 开车二十英里到休斯敦北部的小镇只为了见一个久违的朋友。他和他 的妻子住在沙特阿拉伯但是假期的时候他们就会飞来美国的豪宅居住度假。从1988年起我 就没有再见到他直到昨天,虽然有 时候我们打电话联系一下子。他们招待我佳肴,然后我 们在他几乎有五英里的花园散步谈心。重逢总是美好的。在我从 他们家开车回我的公寓的时候,发现温度居然有111华氏!天气真的很热。


  我想这 是我整个夏天经历过最热的一天。希望夏 天的印第安纳和夏天都非常的清凉哦。(双关句~)


  海豚一直微笑着,我也是,永远对你为微笑。

  Dear Darwin,


  I am so happy that you are doing great and congratulations for your new office. I am sure the window view is much better. I love your thoughts on hope, I believe in hope, and that always gives me courage when I feel frustrated, then I feel I can keep moving on.

  The weather in Indiana is much cooler, around 77 F, after a while, all of a sudden, autumn comes and the leaves turn red, the campus view would be breathtaking. Don't you love fall? Everything suddenly became colorful, golden and poetic. You feel that your writing became softer and more philosophical, then you start thinking about wisdom, life, love, hope, friendship, family, relationship, empathy all these immortal topics. Suddenly, you feel that you forget about where you are, who you are and when it is, and you are just sitting in a silent library, listening to the sound of leaves falling like butterflies.


  My life on campus is still going on, as a Resident Assistant, every week I host an activity with my 40 residents and help them interact with each other to build a community, also maintaining the safety, health and sanitary of the floor area. Luckily, I haven't had a trouble-maker on my floor, every girl is nice to me. When I talk to my friends about this, they start laughing:"Come on Summer, have you ever talked about any bad things of a person? You just think everyone is nice." They laugh about my judgments. However, I have my clear judgments, I am very sentimental, but I am also good at analyzing, when they make a mistake, I tend to first forgive them and talk to them in person. I think people do make mistakes now and then and you should give them a chance to correct them, make progress and be successful in the future. I can understand complaining, handling complains make us learn from history and improve ourselves, but sometimes I think complaining is a signal of lacking of confidence and ability, you can put the energy into something else which could benefit you rather than plain complaining while doing nothing.

  Also, another thought for these days' thinking: It's much more likely to act the way for a feeling, than to feel like the way of an action. A good habit is built up by more than 14 days, so when you want to achieve something like a long term project, you can first start doing the work breakdowns for like 30 min to 1 hour everyday and form a habit, then everything becomes much easier.

  Life goes on and I am looking forward to your reply. I miss Houston, I wish I could see you soon.

  Have a nice day!


  Best Regards,


  Sincerely,

  Summer

  亲爱的达尔文:


  恭喜你 的升职和你的新办公室!听到你工作上的进展,我由衷为你高兴。我相信 有窗台的风景会视野开阔。我喜欢 你对于希望的见解,我一直坚信着希望,希望在 我失落的时候给与我勇气与力量,然后让我继续前行。


  印第安 纳的天气比休斯敦凉爽多了,大约77华氏,而不一会儿,弹指一挥间,秋天骤然降临,而树叶被染得通红,校园的 景色瞬间变得沁人心脾。难道你不喜欢秋天么?人间的 一切恍然间都变得斑斓纷呈,金灿灿的,充满着诗意。你感觉 到你的笔墨变得柔软,而你变 得更加性灵与纯净,然后你 开始思考着关于智慧,生活,爱,希望,友谊,家庭,恋情,恻隐之 心等一切永恒的话题。忽然,你忘记了你在哪里,你是谁,现在是什么时间,你只是 静静地坐在图书馆里,听树叶 轻轻摇曳飘落宛如翩翩起舞的蝴蝶。


     我的校 园生活还在继续,作为一个宿舍管理员,每一周 我都需要给我的40名住户开展活动,帮助他 们增加社交交往,建立社区,我的工 作还包括维持一个安全,健康,清洁的楼道环境。幸运的是,我的楼 层里没有麻烦制造者,每个女 孩子都对我很和善。当我对 我的朋友说每个人都对我很好的时候,他们居 然哈哈大笑起来:“拜托夏天,在你心 中每个人都是好人,每个人都很善良。”他们嘲 笑我对人的判断力。


     然而,我觉得 我有着清醒的判断力。我知道我多愁善感,但是我也善于分析,当有人犯错误的时候,我倾向于首先原谅他,然后沟通,给与解释的机会。我认为人无完人,总会偶 尔或者经常犯错误,我们应该心胸宽广,让他们 有机会修改错误,逐步完善自己。


     我理解 抱怨的潜在原因,处理抱 怨能够帮助我们向历史学习,也促使 自己进步与成长。可是有时候我觉得,抱怨也 是一种不够自信的象征,你其实 可以把抱怨的力气花在改进与完善的方面,只抱怨而不做事,则会失 去斗志而无法进步。


     最近也 开始思考一些小问题。比如,我觉得 让行动决定感觉会比靠感觉来驾驭行动更加有力量。为什么 我会这样觉得呢?一般来说,养成一 个良好的习惯需要十四天,所以当 你想要达成一个长远的项目,你首先 需要把工作分解成一个一个任务,然后开 始每天循序渐进地工作来形成一种良好的习惯。当习惯成自然,所有的 事情都会变得水到渠成。


     生活还在继续,我也期待着你的来信,我想念休斯敦,我也希 望能够早日见到你。


  祝你有 个愉快的一天哦!


  最好的祝愿,


  您真诚的,


  夏天


  八月二十八日


  Dear Summer,


  I am always so glad to hear from you. I am happy to hear you have no troublemakers, but I’m sure some situations will arise from time to time; Does not matter though because you can fix it I’m sure. Unfortunately there are no specifications of life so you will have to do some thinking when those situations arise. Good news you have brilliant mind and all will be well in the end!


  Although I did get to enjoy the view for a time it seems that Bechtel policy for the building is that offices with doors are reserved for persons with 27 grade code and higher and I’m only 26 so out the door I am booted. I am amused and since I had not moved much from my cubical anyway I am little bothered by the whole silly thing. Good grief Charlie Brown!! Do you know Charlie Brown?


  Still hot in Houston. Boring weather but will change.

  I do indeed like Fall. I was originally from Ohio, born there and schooled there. Fall was always the best of all. Moderate temperatures and of course the change in the color of the leaves. As far as sounding like butterflies I can’t hear well enough to say but I do remember the flying decent of leaves in the wind or the flutter in the calm. Just the same gravity does its job and to the ground they go. Could you imagine if we had no gravity? Please smile! All those leaves flying about continuously and butterflies wouldn’t need wings. That would be sad. Ah, but we really live in a perfectly organized world that has beauty and mystery everywhere. How could our world be so amazing?


  I like your thought on creating good habits. Maybe the thing for me is to apply the 14 day method to break a bad habit. Does that work too? Oh, but your message is to not just feel and plan but to actually take action. I’ve been wanting to write a book called: “Economic Anarchy” It is about the current radicalization of the free enterprise system and extreme capitalism. I’m not sure if I should but maybe if I just wrote a little each day I could accomplish this. Up until now it had just been a thought but as you may have heard BORDERS is going bankrupt and selling out their inventory. Last week I was there and I saw a book by Mitt Romney called “No Apologies”. I was going to but it but when I went downstairs I found the checkout line had about a million people in it and would take more time than my patience so I put the book back faithfully on the shelf where it belonged. I think you would have done that too. Anyway yesterday I went back there and I found the book again and it was discounted even more. So I bought it for $2.60 including tax. Not bad. So I started reading the book yesterday and I realized that even though I agree with Mitt Romney on many things he is in fact an economic anarchist and he should not become the next President. So maybe I am obligated to write my book and stop him and others like him. I’ll finish reading the book and then maybe I will begin my rebuttal to this deep seated assault on the ordinary working citizen and its far reaching effects on mankind. I feel I have a good message but I am not sure that I am equipped to do it. Powerful people certainly won’t be amused. I will think more about this. At least I know that I do have the freedom to express my views. I am happy about that.


  Tell me what classes you are taking this term. Then I can think back and imagine your studies. You will be learning these things that I have either long forgotten or never learned at all.

  If you want to send a card my address is ******.

  Now I return to colorful, golden, and poetic and things as you say that really matter and wonder if it is better to just live one’s own life and not try to climb over the Great Wall. Just listen and see the falling flutter that is to come, which we hope will come, which we have faith will come as the nature has a cycle, circle, reliable circle but always with something new.


  Dolphin still smiling. You too?


  Darwin


  亲爱的夏天:


  每次收到你的来信,我都无比欢欣。我很愉 悦地得知你的楼层里没有麻烦制造者,但是我 敢保证有些情况会常常发生,这不算什么,因为我 相信你一定能解决好问题的。不幸的是,生活中 没有一本说明书可以参照,所以如 果有特殊情况发生,你需要 认真思考来解决问题。好消息-- 你兰心蕙质,善解人意,相信最 后的结果一定都是好的。


  虽然我 的确有机会享受到窗外的风景,但是公司的规定。。。(夏天注:这一小段暂不翻译,与公司的规定有关,没有再 公司工作过很难理解清楚含义)。。。 你知道 Charlie Brown 么?你知道谁是 Charlie Brown么?(夏天注: Charlie Brown 是史奴 比动画片的男主人公,一身有很多哲学含义,达尔文再次使用双关。)


  休斯敦依旧非常热,无聊的天气,但是相 信不久就会改变的。


  我也使非常喜欢秋天,我出生在俄亥俄州,也在那 儿完成了我的学业。秋天永 远是我最爱的季节。温和的 天气以及树叶颜色的变幻。虽然我现在年迈,不再能 够听见树叶如同蝴蝶般飘落的声音,但是我 的确记得落叶在风中摇曳,旋转,又趋向于平静的音律。正是宇 宙间的万有引力做功让他们能够如此自由飞舞。你可以 想象这个世界没有重力吗?读到这句话,请微笑!如果没有重力,那些落 叶会永远在天空中飞舞,而蝴蝶 也就不需要翅膀跋山涉水了。那是多 么悲伤的事情啊。啊,我们多么幸运,生长在 一个完美的有规律的世界,在任何 一个角落都拥有着美丽与神秘。这个世 界怎么会如此神奇?


  我喜欢 你关于培养良好习惯的想法。也许对于我来说,是花将近14天的时 间来改掉一个坏习惯吧。那样会 不会也有成效呢?哦,亲爱的朋友,在你的信里,你说生 命并不仅仅是感觉或说说而已,而是真 正地付出与行动。 我一直 很想要写一本书名叫:“经济的混乱”。这将会 是一本关于如今这个激进的,自由贸 易系统与极限资本化而可能产生问题的书。(夏天注:达尔文 虽然是一名资深的施工工程是,也有丰 富的其他职业的工作经历:律师,作家,教授,金融分析师,股票投资分析师等,今后一定细说~~)我不知 道我是否真的会需要写一本书,但是也 许我会照你的说法,每天写一点点,有朝一日,这个梦想就不会遥远。到现在,这只是一个想法。


     但是你也许也知道了BORDERS连锁书 店也已经破产了,开始倾销所有的存货。上个星 期我去了你常常去的BORDERS书店,然后看到了Mitt Romney 写的书:“不要道歉”。 我当时 想要买下来但是当我从二楼走到一楼的时候却发现收银台前的排队会消耗我耐心以外的时间,因此我 虔诚地把书放回了原处取下来的书架上。我想你也会这样做的。不管怎么样,昨天我 又回去看那本书,又重新找到了它,而它的 折扣居然更加多了。所以我花了2.6美金(含税)买了下来。不算坏。因此我 昨天开始读这本书,而且我 也了解到虽然我同意Mitt Romney在很多方面的想法,而它实 际上是个经济混乱分子而且他一定不可以成为下一任美国总统(夏天注:看到这里,笑不成声。。。)。 于是也 许我有责任写一本“经济的混乱”来组止 他们这一些好事之徒!我将会 尽快阅读完这本书,而后我 也许能开始辩驳这本书中对单纯的工作劳动力的深度攻击,他们造 成的对大家影响也是很大的。


     我觉得 我有许多很有意思的信息,但是我 不知道我是否有能力驾驭他们来将这个项目做好。强大的 人们不会轻易地被雕虫小技所折服。我会更 多的投入和思考这个问题,至少我 知道我拥有表达我的观点。在这一点上,我很快乐。


     夏天,告诉我 这个学期你都上些什么课程呢?然后我可以回首往昔,然后遐 想你的学习生活。你将会 知道我不仅完全忘记了曾经学过的东西,而你现 在所学的大多数东西我甚至会从来都没有学过。


     如果你 想要给我寄一张贺卡,我的地址是。。。 


     现在,就让我 回归到那色彩斑斓,金灿灿地,诗意的氛围,那些灵魂深处的东西,就像你曾经说过,是不是 就活在自己所向往的世界,而不仅 仅只是为了去攀登那座长城,攀登是美的,享受当下也是重要的。就让我 们聆听万籁俱寂,叶落归根,那些该 来的都会逐渐沉默,而我们也期待着,也虔诚笃信着,这个世界是个轮回,一圈一圈地旋转,而每一 个轮回都有着匠心独运的新意。


     海豚还在微笑着,我的小夏天呢?
