Took my breath away


2010-10-04


一天,去幼儿园接孩子。进门后,看到墙上挂满了镜框。是所有老师的照片,名字。与以往不同的是,照片都被老师自己装饰过,显得活泼,有趣。以前也看到过墙上那种放大的标准照和照片下面的名字。我总是找到脸熟但不知道名字的老师,狠狠地念几次,以避免打招呼时叫不出名字的尴尬。但这一次比较特别,每个人都在镜框里面的背景上写了一句话。有的是简简单单的一句 “Hi! 我是XX班的老师”,有的写上自己的特长喜好。我于是饶有兴致地一个一个读过去,当读到在学前班教过我孩子的年轻的Ashley的时候,我的目光停住了,脸上的笑容也收敛了。她在照片下面写的是这样一句话,“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away”。 那一瞬间took my breath away!

不晓得这句话出自谁人之口,上网搜过后,也不清楚Hilary Cooper是在怎样的情况下说出这样的话。然而,它象一滴沉重的水珠,不断滴落,不断撞击一根又一根不同频率的心弦,演绎出一个有彩虹七色般的和声......

很久以来,我有这样一种感觉--
读书的时候,隐隐有一种期待,期待着在成千上万句话里,最终有一句话能撞击心弦;
看电影的时候,隐隐有一种期待,期待着在一两个小时的时间里,最终有一个场景能凝固在眼前;
交谈的时候,隐隐有一种期待,期待着在海阔天空的对白里,最终有一个观点能烙印在记忆深处。
就像看“马丁路德”时,当他老师说如果每个人都用自己的理解去解释圣经,岂不是失去了标准,马丁路德说,不错,可能会失去了标准,但会多出很多基督徒。
就像那段被岁月燃烧的青春,那些被憧憬燃烧的初恋情书中,她有一句话最终没有化成灰烬。“值得去做的,就要做好;值得去做好的,就要做得尽善尽美。"
就像“功夫熊猫”里乌龟大师说的,“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why it is called the present."

电影“Hachi”讲述的是一条狗对已经逝去主人的一生等待。对于这狗来说,每天下午5点,跟下班后走出车站的主人的见面,是他最幸福的时刻。当他第一次没有等到那个时刻以后,他决定继续等下去。一等,就是九年。

最后,当他阖上双眼的时候,等待一生的那一个幸福时刻到来了。那一刻 took his breath away...

12.谢谢朋友们的鼓励!
《小王子》很好看, “驯养”是个深刻的字眼。谢谢六推荐这本书!
To Bell & 无名小卒: Both of you are right! This song is not about a personal story. Next time, we will try to "take everybody's breath away......."

11.每一刻took his breath away,都是一次被驯养的过程。每一次都心怀期待。六♀2010-10-06 00:45:28
10.当我单向的爱着你的时候,我只是太阳,我依靠我自己的光支撑。等我终于也可能被你爱,也有期待的时候,就可以做成月亮,就可以等待依靠你的光,确认我存在的美好。就像《小王子》教会我们的那件最珍贵的事,一切的美好,都源于我们期待被“驯养”,一句话,一阕词,一曲歌,一个不同的契机…… 你驯养了我,我们将会彼此需要,彼此成为世界上唯一的了……每一次期待的过程,都是一次雀跃着被驯养的过程,被生命中唯一仅有的它驯养。因为这期待,所以微笑,所以美好……六♀2010-10-05 11:59:51

6.On the train back from downtown today, I was still thinking about how to give Frank the feedback for the song you produced as a team. When I got home, I read your article. Bingo! That's exactly what I needed for the comments.

I think one of the reasons "Ma Song" has hit home run is we feel it is a very personal song, even though you are writing about our country. Why? Because you tell it as it is. The air, the traffic, the strangers' attitude, the anxiety of getting a Green Card, dream out in Chinese, the measure of gain and loss if stay put or go back to China..... We've all been there, done that...

That is one of the most important reasons for a great song.... tell the story....

What would you like to tell the audience about Tsinghua University? We all know it's the best university in China, or even more so, one of the best universities in the world. How is Tsinghua so special to you? Perhaps in addition to train your academic skills, and be great at what you will be doing as a professional in later years, it is also a great place to nurture your creative talents, make you go outside your comfort zone, and really let your true passion shows.....Or perhaps give you the chance to meet the best woman in your lives, beautiful inside and outside.... Or keep you humble and modest, because at Tsinghua, you are always going to meet somebody better, smarter, and wiser.

As for me, hec, I am so grateful for the university, that they created the best song writers, musicians both in China (Li, Jian, for example) and among oversea Chinese, like you guys... I know I might be one of the hundreds or thousands of your fans....

Your Hsinghua song is very poetic, well polished, pleasing to the ears, beautiful harmony. But just because you two wrote such a soul touching song before, I know you can do even better. Perhaps come up with a song that can 'take everybody's breath away......."

5.Panda seems like a simple movie for children; actually it means so much for adults and life of human being as well. “Took my breath away” is really a good expression. te amo♀2010-10-04 14:18:55
4.Tim,
好文。让俺想起一句话长辈对俺说的话: “人生的路漫长,但要紧的只有几步。”

3."交谈的时候,隐隐有一种期待,期待着在海阔天空的对白里,最终有一个观点能烙印在记忆深处。"

我和人谈话时,常有这样的期待,尤其是与年长人的交流!谢谢你说出我不会表达的话:)

一起开心♀2010-10-04 12:18:11
2.这让我想起Godaddy的创始人Bob Parsons经常挂在嘴边的一句话:We don't come here for a long time, we come here for a good time.我爱微风♂2010-10-04 11:54:57
