浴在和煦阳光之中的午餐时光。它们是我孩提时代的一个个小插曲告诉我一个道理:人生的滋味就在于和我们所爱的人在一起不经意地共度的日常生活、分享的点点滴滴的欢乐而不在于某种事先测量好的"添加剂"。在享用母亲做的花生酱、三明治和巧克力碎末小甜饼的时候我懂得了爱就体现在这些细微这处。几个月前母亲又来看我。我特意请了天假陪母亲吃午饭。中午饭馆里熙熙壤攘做生意的人忙不迭地从事交易活动他们不时地看看手表。如今已经退休的母亲和我就坐在这群人中间。从母亲的表情中我看得出母亲打心眼里喜欢上班族这种生活的节奏。"妈我小的时候您老呆在家里一定觉得很烦吧,"我说。"烦,做家务是令人心烦不过你从来没使我感到心烦过。"我不相信这是实话于是我又想法子套她的话。"看孩子哪会像工作那样富有刺激性呢,""工作是富有刺激性的"母亲答道"很高兴我也有过工作。可是工作好比开了口的气球你只有不停地充气它才能鼓着劲。可是一个孩子就是一粒种子你浇灌了它全心全意地爱护它然后它就会独立自主地开出美丽的花朵来。"此时此刻我凝望着我的母亲脑海里又浮现出儿时的我和母亲一起坐在饭桌旁的情景也明白了为什么我还珍藏着夹在我们家里那本旧字典中的那朵用两小块皱皱巴巴的纸巾压平的蒲公英。姜建华译MyforevervalentineThetraditionalholidaysinourhousewhenIwasachildwerespenttimingelaboratemealsaroundfootballgamesMyfathertriedtomakepleasantchitchatandeatasmuchashecouldduringhalftimeAtChristmashefoundtimetohaveacuportwoofholidaybeeranddothishollyshapedbowtieButhedidn'ttrulyshineuntilvalentinesdayIdon'tknowwhetheritwasbecauseworkattheofficeslowedduringFebruaryorbecausethefootballseasonwasoverButvalentinesdaywasthetimemyfatherchosetoshowhisloveforthespecialpeopleinhislifeOvertheyearsIfondlythoughtofhimasmy"valentineman"MyfirstrecollectionofthemagichecouldbringtovalentinesdaycamewhenIwassixForseveraldaysIhadbeencuttingoutvalentinesformyclassmatesEachofuswastodecoratea"mailbox"andputitonourdeskforotherstogiveuscardsThatboxanditscontentsusheredinasuccessionofbittersweetmemoriesofmyentranceintoaworldofpopularitycontestsmarkedbythenumberofcardsreceived,theteasingofboyfriendsgirlfriendsandthetendercareIgavetothecardfromthecutestboyinclassThatmorningatthebreakfasttableIfoundacardandagiftwrappedpackageatmychairThecardwassigned"love,dad",andthegiftwasaringwithasmallpieceofredglasstorepresentmybirthstone,arubyThereislittledifferencebetweenredglassandrubiestoachildofsix,andIrememberwearingthatringwithapridethatallthecardsintheworldcouldnotsurpassAsIgrewolder,thegiftsgavewaytoheartshapedboxesfilledwithmyfavoritechocolatesandalwaysincludedaspecial用请下载wwwdocincomyongqing豆丁|英语用请下载cardsigned"love,dad"Inthoseyearsmy"thankyous"becamemoreofaperfunctoryresponseThecardsseemedlessimportant,andItookforgrantedthatthevalentinewouldalwaysbethereLongpastthedaysofhavinga"mailbox"onmydesk,Ihadplacedmyhopesanddreamsinreceivingcardsandgiftsfrom“significantothers”,and"love,dad"justdidn'tseemquiteenoughIfmyfatherknewthenthathehadbeenreplaced,heneverletitshowIfhesensedanydisappointmentovervalentinesthatdidn’tarriveforme,hejusttriedthatmuchhardertocreateapositiveatmosphere,givingmeanextrahuganddoingwhathecouldtomakemydayalittlebrighterMymailboxeventuallyhadaruraladdress,andthejobofhandsdeliveringcandyandcardswasrelegatedtotheUSPostalserviceNeverintenyearswasmyfather’spackagelatenorwasitonthevalentinesdayeightyearsagowhenIreachedintothemailboxtofindacardaddressedtomeinmymother'shandwritingItwasthekindofcardthatcomesinaninexpensiveassortmentboxsoldbyachildgoingdoortodoortotrytoearnmoneyforaschoolprojectItwasthekindofcardthatyouusedtogetfromagrandmotheroranagingauntor,inthiscase,adyingfatherItwasthekindofcardthatputalumpinyourthroatandtearsinyoureyesbecauseyouknewthepersonnolongerwasabletogooutandbuyarealvalentineItwasacardthatsignaledthiswouldbethelastyouwouldreceivefromhimThecardhadaphotographoftulipsontheoutside,andontheinsidemymotherhadprinted"happyvalentinesday"Beneathit,scrawledinbarelylegiblehandwriting,was"love,dad"HisfinalcardremainsonmybulletinboardtodayIt'sareminderofhowspecialfatherscanbeandhowimportantithasbeentomeovertheyearstoknowthatIhadafatherwhocontinuedatraditionoflovewithagenerosityofspirit,simpleactsofunderstandingandanabilitytoexpresshappinessoverthepeopleinhislifeThosethingsneverdie,nordoesthememoryofamanwhoneverstoppedbeingmyvalentineYOUTHYouthisnotatimeoflifeitisastateofminditisnotamatterofrosycheeks,redlipsandsupplekneesitisamatterofthewill,aqualityoftheimagination,avigoroftheemotionsitisthefreshnessofthedeepspringsoflifeYouthmeansatemperamentalpredominanceofcourageovertimidity,oftheappetiteforadventureovertheloveofeaseThisoftenexistsinamanofmorethanaboyofNobodygrowsoldmerelybyanumberofyearsWegrowoldbydesertingouridealsYearsmaywrinkletheskin,buttogiveupenthusiasmwrinklesthesoulWorry,fear,selfdistrustbowstheheartandturnsthespringbacktodustwhetheror,thereisineveryhumanbeing’sheartthelureofwonder,theunfailingchildlikeappetiteofwhat’snextandthejoyofthegameoflivingInthecenterofyourheartandmyheartthereisawirelessstation:solongasitreceivesmessagesofbeauty,hope,cheer,courageandpowerfrommenandfromtheInfinite,youandIwillremainyoungWhentheaerialsaredown,andyourspiritiscoveredwithsnowsofcynicismandtheiceofpessimism,thenyouaregrownold,evenat,butaslongasyouraerialsareuptocatchwavesofoptimism,thereishopeyoumayhaveyoungheartat青春不是生命的一瞬它是一种自然的心境青春不是如花的脸庞、鲜红的嘴唇和健康柔润的双腿它是一种意志、想象、精力更是生命中那生机勃勃的春天。青春是冲动的勇敢而不是懦弱,青春是挑战的欲望而不是安逸的生活。即使年过花甲,仍壮心不已没有人痴长百岁,而伴随着的是我们抛却幻想,锤炼生活的经历。岁月让我们的皮肤起了皱纹,但缺乏激情会让我们的灵魂萎缩。焦虑、恐惧、缺乏自信则让心稽首更让心灵的青春尘封无论岁还是岁我们每个人都有着天生的好奇心、孩子般刨根追底不厌其烦的渴求欲望、幻想游戏人生的生活方式。在你我心中有着心灵的默契:只要我们的心还能从人们的身上和大自然的怀抱中感受到美丽、希望、快乐、勇气和力量那么我们依旧年轻无限。当幻想破灭而你愤世嫉俗对生活充满悲观情绪那么你已经老了。即使在岁的时候只要你积极乐观的追求你心中的幻想一直到永远那么你在岁的时候仍有一颗永保青春的心。PHOENIX用请下载wwwdocincomyongqin
