Visiting Monterey (1)

元旦前我们去了 Monterey Bay Aquarium. 因为孩子的缘故,我们有艺术馆科学馆等membership,只要一年去两次,就物超所值了。 玩得自然高兴。小孩子眼中闪现的那种兴奋神情,真是令人羡慕。

中午在旁边的 Bubba Gump Shrimp 用餐。选这家餐馆,纯粹是因为店名抓眼球, 因为个女儿都看过电影 Forrest Gump. 餐桌上的poster says, "Run, Forrest, Run!"

店家生意奇好。 终于该我们order 时, 一头卷发圆眼圆脸身材丰满的waitress 笑道,考考你们。 她问了些与电影相关的小问题,譬如, “What was the only good thing for Forrest Gump to be wounded in the buttocks? "

waitress 当然提到了电影中的 most famous line, "What was life like? " Of course we all know that. "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

我同女儿开玩笑说, 巧克力大都甜甜的, 连含苦味的 dark chocolate 也加了各种fancy flavors, 生活哪有那么 easy 。 当然十几岁的孩子未必知晓我的意思。本愚年少时曾豪情万丈,以为遍尝生活百味方不枉人生。 哪知人生不易,欢笑与泪水并存。

Winston Groom 在小说中这么解释:

"Just remember, life is like a box of chocolates." ... "You know, they've got these chocolate assortments, and you like some but you don't like others? And you eat all the ones you don't like as much? I always think about that when something painful comes up. 'Now just polish these off, and everything'll be OK.' Life is a box of chocolates."

Yes, it does make sense. "Life is a box of chocolates". You take what you get, bitter or sweet. If you are given lemons, make lemonade.

每年这个时候, 时间跑得快是我最明确的感觉。

过去十年, 基本上是网上度过的。很多网友都是十年的朋友了。这个网上一小角, 也都存在有大概七,八年了。

Visiting Monterey (2)


每有朋友从国内来,必开车去蒙特利,沿 17 mile drive 观海景,与 Lone Cypress Tree 合影。潮起潮落的沙滩上,奇石林立,古木参天,从太平洋吹来的清新空气沁心润肺。只在沙滩上走走,感觉就超好了。若有一椽茅屋,可每日听海浪看日落,那便是神仙了。

我们现在每次去基本上是直奔水族馆,中午在附近随便走走。水族馆位于临海的Cannery Row 区。蒙特利曾被称为 ”The Sardine Capital of the World“, 早先这里加工罐头沙丁,如今满街商店餐馆,tourists are now the catch of the day.

在一个小广场上,矗立着诺贝尔文学奖得主 John Steinbeck 的头像。《The Grapes of Wrath 愤怒的葡萄》是他最著名的小说。斯坦贝克出生于蒙特利附近的Salinas, 那里有大片的如歌田野。斯坦贝克曾在斯坦福读书六年,但未获文凭。好像不少文学巨匠都没有正规文凭。是谁说过,社会是最好的大学,对作家尤其如此吧。没有人生历练,所写所感自然有限。斯坦贝克婚后就住在Cannery Row 旁边,在那里写下了很多名著。我只读过他的《 Of Mice and Men 人鼠之间》,属于读过就不会忘的那类小说。

有些故事,当时通宵翻完,过后连情节甚至书名都记不得了,比方琼瑶故事,呵呵。所谓流行,一阵风,吹过了无踪影。所谓经典,落足于大脑的某个角落,在某个时辰,会重回记忆,再度敲击你的神经,令你悄然落泪。

最近去过California Academy of Sciences。 展厅中有一白鳄鱼, albino alligator, about 40 years old. 而在自然环境中,白化动物的生存希望是非常渺茫的。看到这只鳄鱼,我就想起《人鼠之间》的Lennie, 不由心有戚戚。 这个世界里,你若与众不同,梦想,乃至活下去都是不容易的事。小说中,个头高大但心智却如孩子般的Lennie 有个卑微的梦想,他想拥有一小块地,耕种食物,养几只毛茸茸的小兔子。就在梦想即将实现时,他相依为命的朋友 George 却不得不把枪对准他的后脑勺:

George raised the gun and his hands shook, and he dropped his hand to the ground again. "Go on, " said Lennie. "How's it gonna be. We gonna get a little place. " "We'll have a cow, " said George. "An' we'll have maybe a pig an' chickens . . . . An' down the flat we'll have a . . . . Little piece alfalfa- " "For the rabbits, " Lennie shouted. "For the rabbits, " George repeated. "And I get to tend the rabbits. " "An' you get to tend the rabbits. " Lennie giggled with happiness. "An' live on the fatta the lan'. " "Yes. " Lennie turned his head. "No, Lennie. Look down there acrost the river, like you can almost see the place. " Lennie obeyed him. George looked down at the gun. There were crashing footsteps in the brush now. (from Of Mice and Men)


斯坦贝克接受1962年诺贝尔文学奖时,发言中有这样一段话:

. . . the writer is delegated to declare and to celebrate man’s proven capacity for greatness of heart and spirit—for gallantry in defeat, for courage, compassion and love. In the endless war against weakness and despair, these are the bright rally flags of hope and of emulation. I hold that a writer who does not passionately believe in the perfectibility of man has no dedication nor any membership in literature.


具有人道关怀精神的斯坦贝克是蒙特利的骄傲,也是加州人的骄傲。

红河谷
云天


如果时间允许,在小说与电影之间,我会选择先读小说。”风摇竹影有声画,雨打梅花无字诗“,文字里有声有画,天地无限。而时间从不对任何人格外慷慨,能看电影也是不错的奢侈的选择。

斯坦贝克写于1939 年的小说《The Grapes of Wrath 愤怒的葡萄》我尚无闲问津,但由Henry Fonda 1940 年主演的电影已撼魂震魄, 歌曲”The Red River Valley “ 因此多了层含义。






红河谷

人们说,你就要离开村庄,
我们将怀念你的微笑。
你的眼睛比太阳更明亮,
照耀在我们的心上。

走过来坐在我的身旁,
不要离别的这样匆忙;
要记住红河谷你的故乡,
还有那热爱你的姑娘。


Red River Valley

From this valley they say you are going
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our path for a while

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the girl that has loved you so true


最早听到这首歌是在读中学时,那时开始流行外国歌曲。有一次班里文艺表演,同学宏口琴演奏正是这首曲子。宏待人诚恳,言谈举止总是彬彬有礼,或许是因父母身体不好,过早分担生活重担之故,他似乎比大部分同龄男生都懂事。他后来医学院毕业。毕业后同学聚会见过宏几面,但现在回想起来,脑中浮现的仍是他中学时的模样。白驹过隙,恍惚间人生已到中年,少年的背影早已远去。

那时听红河谷只觉旋律很美,不同于中国民歌和革命歌曲。读大学时,正值涩涩青春,再听感觉自然两样。只看歌词,“红河谷”应归于情歌类,淡淡的忧伤,淡淡的别离。




一首好的主题曲令电影升华,让音乐与画面互为烘托,渲染一种情境与情绪,比方《The Cold Mountain 冷山》的主题曲"You Will Be My Ain True Love", 萦绕全剧,引领着Inman 艰辛的归乡路。 有时,主题曲甚至可以超越电影本身而独立之外,成为经久不衰的经典,像 Auld Lang Syne, 原为《Waterloo Bridge 魂断蓝桥》的插曲,听这首曲时,会想到李叔同的”送别“:长亭外,古道边,芳草碧连天,晚风拂柳笛声残,夕阳山外山。。。。。。






根据维基,早在1896 年之前,红河谷一歌就已在加拿大某些省份流行。原歌是吟唱恋人的忧伤,因为女子的 soldier lover 要返回安大略省。

John Ford 导演的 The Grapes of Wrath 采用红河谷做主题曲。虽然我更偏爱文字,但我不得不说,电影有着文字所无法企及的独特魅力,比方配乐。最理想的状况自然是既读文字,也观赏电影, 然鱼与熊掌原是人生之无奈。


在《愤怒的葡萄》中,红河谷的旋律从字幕到剧终多次回旋,不同的节奏和基调应对故着不同的情境。

故事发生在1933年。肆虐的沙尘暴让庄稼颗粒无收,还不起债的农民被赶出自己的家园。 当Tom Joad 一家被迫离开故乡Oklahoma 时,汤姆的妈妈清点着一个盒子里的物件,这些应当是岁月沉淀下来的纪念品。她叹着气,把寄自纽约的写有“Hello Honey" 的明信片丢进炉火。她将一对精致耳环挂在耳畔,端详镜子里的自己:沧桑的面孔上,一双伤感忧愁的眼。那副耳环,或是郎君的定情物,抑或是婚礼时父母所赠,它承载的必是一段快乐时光。而此刻,他们必须告别老屋,告别过去,从此”乡关不再见“。红河谷忧伤缓慢的旋律,就在这样的场景下,在四壁空空的旧屋里回响,在破碎的心头无语凝噎。

在红河谷的旋律里,Joad 一家坐上装着破烂家当的老旧卡车上路了。当最后一株麦苗已湮没于风沙,当老屋的脊骨已成为推土机下的残瓦碎砺,生于斯长于斯的故乡,从此成为梦中哭泣的记忆。

在路上,祖父祖母撒手人寰。 没有钱办葬礼,曾为牧师的Casy站在就地挖好的土坑前做祷告,”I wouldn't pray just for an old man that's dead, 'cause he's all right. If I was to pray, I'd pray for folks that's alive and don't know which way to turn. “

沿着U.S. Route 66,一路艰辛,他们终于来到梦想之地加州,the land of milk and honey。 然而在大萧条的年代里,对外来户Okies,加州是无望之地。他们受人歧视,受贪婪的农场主压榨,在生命的边缘上为活命而挣扎。Casy 为难民争权益, 被警察打死。他乡有玉米,有桃子,有葡萄,却没有难民们梦想的家园。寒月冷夜,河水哗哗,流淌着无处申诉的冤屈。

在几乎走投无路时,汤姆一家得以在联邦政府的一处难民营暂时安身,那里设施好,周末还有dance party。 当红河谷以舒展欢快的旋律响起时, 汤姆邀请妈妈跳舞。看着妈妈的笑脸,汤姆动情唱道:

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu 。。。。



历尽苦难后,倘若这样的快乐,这样的场景,能在歌声里就此凝固,该有多好。可这快乐只是短暂的。面临被警察逮捕危险的汤姆,不得不向妈妈告别,也许是最后的诀别。汤姆背着铺盖卷走向漆黑的旷野 ,汤姆妈独自暗泣,“红河谷”忧伤的旋律潮水般漫向无边的暗夜。。。。。




此生,我们或许会终老他乡
在尚未失忆之前,请以口琴和短笛相伴
让我们再唱一遍年轻时的歌

每一首歌背后都有一个故事,快乐的,伤感的
万水千山我们已走过
昨日挥手作别的村庄,梦里依旧

每个寻梦的流浪人都来自红河谷, 每个人的心中都流淌着一条河

30 days Immigration


30 Days 是系列 TV Documentary,”Season one premiered on June 15, 2005, and its respective DVD set was released July 11, 2006. The second season premiered on July 26, 2006. Season 3 of 30 Days premiered on June 3, 2008“, “created and hosted by Morgan Spurlock. In each episode, Spurlock, or some other person or group of people, spend 30 days immersing themselves in a particular lifestyle with which they are unfamiliar (e.g. working for minimum wage, being in prison, a Christian living as a Muslim etc.), while discussing related social issues. ” 美国有的高中以此作课堂补充教材。

昨天看了 30 Days Immigration. 一个巡逻边境的美国民兵Frank 在位于洛杉矶的非法移民 Gonzalez家(1 bedroom apartment)蹲点一个月,当中还有几天到Gonzalez 在墨西哥的弟弟家体验生活。

Gonzalez 家漂亮的大女儿Armida 懂事用功,毕业时申请了两所大学,Princeton Univ.(rejected), and Santa Clara Univ.(accepted). 小女说,班上男生不以为然,”不就是Santa Clara Univ.嘛“。 这所高中的学生大多家境好,不乏开奔驰上学的公子哥们。 还是穷人家的孩子早当家。

Frank 说,"As we grow older, we learn to appreciate life". 频频点头,尤其是看了这样的 reality show. 为生活漂泊流浪,不容易。 中国谚语,金窝银窝不如自己的草窝。西谚,East west home is the best. 背井离乡都是不得已,愿所有寻梦人梦想成真。

Gonzalez 一家让Frank 转变不少。最后分手时,Frank states,"There comes a time when you love people for who they are, all politics aside." Yeah, humanity transcends politics.

"all politics aside", 边界之南的墨西哥为什么民不聊生,以致那么多人不顾一切偷渡到美国? 为了国民利益,墨西哥政府是否应当把一部分国土交给美国政府管理? 当然这是严重胡诌。

片尾字幕:Frank 仍活跃于草根巡逻队。Armida 在本地一所大学读书。wish her and her family the best.

30's Days, Immigration in Review
by Jessica

Illegal immigration has become an important topic in current news and politics. This controversial subject was featured in FX’s “30 Days” program. It begins when a Frank George, radical minuteman from the border, moves in with an illegal immigrant family in East L.A. This family of seven lives in tight quarters which become even smaller when another person comes to live there.

The Gonzalez family consists of Rigoberto (father), Pati (mother), and 5 children. The two youngest of the children were born in the United States, thus making them citizens. The other three however, are still in the States illegally. The most outspoken of them all was oldest daughter Armida.

Frank must leave all of his identification papers behind, do manual labor, and live in their home for 30 days. He himself was an immigrant from Cuba, however he and his family did so legally. Upon his arrival to his new temporary home, he is instantly reminded of Cuba. Frank is immediately put to work with Rigoberto, who works for low wages as a handyman. This consisted of many strenuous jobs and chores. Rigoberto says that he is “doing the jobs that Americans don’t want to do.”

Frank also spends time with the rest of the family and really begins to become a part of their family and lives. He is genuinely touched by the family and feels a bond of kinship between them. During his time there he states, “…we really start to appreciate life.” But was that enough to change his radical ways?

This is not meant to persuade the viewer in either direction. If anything else, the producers of this episode were attempting to inform the viewer. Both sides of the argument are shown, one through Frank and the other through the family and their friends. It informs the viewers of the conditions that immigrants are leaving behind and their dreams of the future yet to come. It is most defiantly an episode worth watching.

去年美国参院通过移民改革法案,让美国的“非法”移民合法,本人表示非常赞赏,认为这样的法案是政客们应当做的,真正富有人道精神的事情。不过没有紧跟着事情,不知后来众院的版本以及最终的版本通过没有,如果有的话。

对于很多国家,那些所谓“民族独立”之类的东西,都是无能的统治者对普通老百姓的洗脑。让墨西哥人投票变成美国一个州,不知道有多少人会反对。二战结束的时候,菲律宾人要投票成为美国的一个州,不仅普通老百姓会躲过多次统治者争权夺利引起的社会动荡,过上富足的日子,而且世界上又多了一个夏威夷那样为全世界人民旅游度假的天堂。古巴,北韩这样的民族“独立”,不过是一个家族统治占有一个国家的幌子而已。

本人血管里是没有一滴所谓的“民族主义”的血液的。但本人对故乡四川的热爱,却是真真切切的。
