[大鳥啊媽] 肯定不克難的克羅埃西雅之旅

2014 兒童樂園 

親愛的 台南的易秀霞阿嬤 (是的您的孫子們都這樣喊您)

現在的您應該已經抵達維也納,跟著導遊還有新認識的團員們一起遊歷當地。
近日來您像個孩子一樣的興奮,時不時打電話來詢問該帶哪些東西,擔心天氣問題。
不說別人可能還不知道這並非您第一次出國了,歐洲已經去過兩次,香港也去過幾次。
我知道,因為您都是跟我去的。而且是很勇敢的自助旅行。我們一起走過漫長的道路,
住進時而荒唐的青年旅館,嚐過太多「異常」料理。 追趕火車,迷路於威尼斯的巷內。
偶爾回憶起來都覺得好滿足,那跟蜜月旅行是無法相比擬的感受。
是一種我終於能夠照顧您,帶您安全地走這一趟的開心與回饋。

很遺憾的是做了媽媽的我好一陣子沒法陪伴您出遊,只能常常聽您算著
我們最後一次一起出國是哪一年哪個地區。
但更替您開心,現在,再過了辛苦的一甲子之後,您終於放開胸懷,對自己好一點。
大方一點。找到生活中的新出口,勇敢的一個人跟團旅遊。
這次的出遊大概沒辦法整天放棄景點只瘋狂逛街,也沒辦法花了半天走了整城只為一雙好看又好走的新鞋。
但絕對不會有半夜有金髮碧眼外國男子進門同住的房間,更不會有花了大錢難吃的餐點。
祝您旅途愉快,好好享受,安全回家!

[老母碎碎念] 男人與賤骨頭

喜不自勝的畫畫女孩
       男人與賤骨頭,這標題是狠了一點我也知道。賤人是不分男女老少的,而且隨處皆有。 就好比一堆蠢男人由A片發想出了「口嫌體正直」這個詞來用在女人身上一樣,男人也有一樣的症頭。嘴巴上說得很給力,骨子裏明明就很需要人家呵護。說穿了就是一把賤骨頭藏在肥肉裡。這篇文章起因是朋友夫妻間的爭執,過程相當火爆。但應該就是因為太太生了一場惱人的病,而需要常常回娘家休養。於是乎,先生就和南部上來支援的啊嘛一同奮鬥了好一段時間。太太是病人,身體虛。先生照顧人,心裏累。太太邊休養,心裡又過意不去。先生邊操勞,心裡又覺得委屈。大家都看到太太生病了,覺得太太平常太辛苦。可是我也很辛苦啊!所以因為一件芝麻蒜皮的小事就(針對太太)爆炸了,其實就是想(跟太太)討拍。       討拍沒有錯,反正台灣最流行小確幸跟不合時宜的,總是偶然爆發性出現的「同理心」。看到小孩子被家暴了,就同理心爆發的走上街頭。實際上平常遇到帶孩子的媽媽,根本完全沒有同理心。但!拍拍不難啊!拍拍又不用錢。問題是夫妻之間什麼時候拍拍,就跟政治人物什麼時候摸頭,就跟妓女何時可以假裝高潮然後結束這一場交易ㄧ樣是門「藝術」。        我比較在意的是,夫妻之間與其在那裡諜對諜,是不是直接說出來快一點?!與其在那裡裝堅強,卻搞到自爆,是不是找對時間抒發一下好一點?與其想要博得「好先生」的虛名,是不是承認自己不擅長但很努力可愛一點?對著自己最親密的人,想要的(特別是不花錢的那一種)不如直接說出口吧!說不出口那就靠現在最流行的LINE不也一樣好用嗎? 最後,要抒發心情,其實不一定要「找對人」。給自己一個獎勵,給自己一個禮物,給自己一場電影,給自己發懶一天,也是自己拍拍自己的好方法啊?!       結論是我要繼續喝珍奶!





the sign

This is the talisman that I bought last year in Japan. It came from a famous temple which is shown in Geisha. the exact temple in which the heroine runs across numerous red gateway.
the talisman is meant to protect the one who wears it and to reconcile the possible danger before hand.
Usually, I am not a very superstitious person. however this kind of trivial signs always bother me a lot.
Every time something close to me is broken or lost, I could not help but wonder if there was something happened and I did not know for the moment and forever.
The sense of insecurity would annoy me for a while until the busy life schedule pushs me further.

On the other hand, I am kind of released at this moment, for I tend to assume this talisman had
solved some possible problem or danger for me.

This evening on my way to the MRT station, this Fox-shaped talisman dropped on the elevator.
Immediately I pick it up and keep it in my bag.
Then once again, I wonder what could happen and what would happen~

My Thesis--Final draft

Chapter One—
Introduction: Amy Tan’s Transition from an Ethnic Writer
to a Global Writer

Why does Amy Tan want to replace her original interest with new subjects? What are the vital factors leading to her drastic exchange? How does her new work reflect the transition? These questions might puzzle a reader as s/he reads Amy Tan’s latest novel—Saving Fish from Drowning (2005). Needless to say, Amy Tan, the author of The Joy Luck Club (1989), is popular among many literature lovers all over the world. Right after the publication of her first novel, it became the bestseller of the year, lingering more than 40 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list. The Joy Luck Club was not only the candidate for National Book Award and the National Book but also received the Commonwealth Gold Award and the Bay Area Book Reviewers Award at the end of that year. Compliments and praises surged one another and the literature community has esteemed Tan as one of the most important Chinese American writers …
