昨晚看了「王德順–最炫東北人」在「一席」演說的視頻,才知道王德順這個人大有來頭。他不只是一位頂尖的藝術家,他可是中國的活寶。 在演講最後,他以白樺的一首詩「船」做結束語。我哭了。 我有過多次這樣的奇遇, 從天堂到地獄只在瞬息之間; 每一朵可愛、溫柔的浪花, 都成了突然崛起、隨即傾倒的高山。 每一滴海水都變臉變色, 剛剛還是那樣美麗、蔚藍; 旋渦糾纏著旋渦, 我被拋向高空又投進深淵…… 當時我甚至想到過輕生, 眼前一片苦海無邊; 放棄了希望就象放棄了舵柄, 在暴力之下只能沈默和哀嘆。 今天我才有資格嘲笑昨天的自己, 為昨天落葉似的惶恐感到羞慚; 虛度了多少年華, 船身多次被礁石撞穿…… 千萬次在大洋里撒網, 才捕獲到一點點生活的經驗, 才恍然大悟, 啊!道理原是如此淺顯: 你要航行嗎? 必然會有千妖百怪出來阻攔; 暴虐的欺凌是它們的遊戲, 製造滅亡是它們唯一的才幹。 命中注定我要常常和它們相逢, 因為我的名字叫做船; 面對強大於自身千萬倍的對手, 能援救自己的只有清醒和勇敢。 恐懼只能使自己盲目, 盲目只能誇大魔鬼的猙獰嘴臉; 也許我的樣子比它們更可怕, 當我以生命相拼,一往無前! 只要我還有一根完整的龍骨, 絕不駛進避風的港灣; 把生命放在征途上, 讓勇敢來決定道路的寬窄、長短。 我完完全全的自由了, 船頭成為埋葬它們的鐵鏟; 我在波浪中有節奏地跳躍, 就象蕩著一個巨大的鞦韆。 即使它們終於把我撕碎, 變成一些殘破的木片; 我不會沈淪,決不! 我還會在浪尖上飛旋。 後來者還會在殘片上認出我, 未來的詩人會喟然長嘆: “這裡有一個幸福的靈魂, 它曾經是一艘前進著的航船……”   當我聽到他朗誦這首詩時,我感觸到這首詩描述了三年前的我。我當時有想過輕生能否解決問題等等。那時我也寫了一篇博文–The Abyss of Depression…


Reactivated My Google+

I was an early adopter of Google Buzz when it was launched in 2010. When Google Buzz was retired and replaced by Google+ in the following year, I setup my Google+ account and, not for long, I decided to ditch using it for numerous reasons. Today, I reactivated my Google+ account after giving it much…

Strikeout the word “Bumiputera” for unity

The Najib’s new administration has just merely passed the first 100 day and he has already shown his dedication to unite the people of Malaysia. New economic policies such as the 30% compulsory “Bumiputera” stakes in IPO (Initial Public Offerings) has been abolished. This is going to stimulate, for sure, more foreign investments into the…

Public transport fares going to increase

The 3:30PM quick news on NTV7 had reported that all public transport (including buses, taxis and school buses) fares are going to be increased by coming August 1. If my memory serves me correctly, the inter-state bus fares were increased by 30% last month. The new fares will certainly burden a large group of citizens…
