《假如岁月足够长》:获得幸福的秘密,便是与时间坦然相处

2019-01-04 来源:国外网站推荐 - 由[国外网站大全]整理 12

  假如岁月足够长,你是否想象过那时年迈的自己在过着怎样的生活?

  

  今天给大家带来的书是《假如岁月足够长》,作者是三浦紫苑。

  

  墨田区的Y镇住着两位老人:有田国政和堀源二郎。他俩是相伴了七十多年的发。??饺说男愿、生活迥异。源二郎属于不羁放纵爱自由的潇洒型,而国政则是古板固执、按部就班过生活的正经型;源二郎因空袭而成了孤儿,自己拜师学艺,一直在做传统细工花簪的手艺活儿,和恋人私奔结婚,中年丧偶无子,年老了也把做花簪当成自己的生活乐趣,而国政是个已经退休的银行职员,相亲结的婚育有两女,但因年轻时只顾在外养家,结果到老妻女都离他而去。这本治愈的短篇讲述的其实就是源和政这两位“没头脑和不高兴”之间互怼吵闹、相互扶持、回忆过去、思考人生的日常,平淡却温馨。

  可能是互补的原因吧,两个人性格和际遇都迥异,但却能一路相伴老友这么久,见证了彼此生命中的悲欢离合、快乐和痛苦。政羡慕源的潇洒淡然,有徒弟陪伴;源羡慕政不像自己孤单一人,还有家人在世上。现在想想自己年老的时候要是有个这样的好友一起聊聊天、侃侃地,偶尔还能拌拌嘴,可能是再幸福不过的一件妙事了吧。

  

  两位老人面对可能不久后就要到来的死亡时,政就一直困扰于死后的世界,害怕面对死亡;而源则看得很开,好好享受当下,即使死亡到来也不枉来人世间走这一遭。或许作者是把自己想表达的借源二郎之口说了出来,就像书的封面所说:“获得幸福的秘密,便是与时间坦然相处。”

  

  不管我们的人生际遇怎样,又如何与别人的不同,如果岁月足够长,我们就享受老年的生活;岁月不够长,我们就珍惜当下所拥有的。在一直往前走的时间面前,岁月不过是春夏秋冬的一次次轮回。

  但是,就算到了新的一天,人也不会变得充满活力。像是慢慢死去的感觉。这就是所谓的岁月流逝啊。

  

  However, even when a new day comes I would not be energetic and would feel like I am gradually dying, which I think is the so-called “Time passes”.

  

  梦却是回到过去的秘密通道。和这世上再也无法相见的人交流的时间,哪怕是悲伤和痛苦的,也不想被任何人打扰。

  

  But dream is a secret passage leading to the past and is the time when we can talk with those whom we cannot see in real life any more. So even if the dream is sad and grievous, we do not want anybody to interrupt it.

  

  明明死亡就在眼前,却感觉死后的世界渐渐远去。

  

  Obviously death is just in front of me, but I feel like the world after death is fading away from me.

  

  生命活动一旦停止,剩下的只有黑暗。再也碰触不到任何人,被“虚无”的世界所吞噬,仅此而已。

  

  Once my life ends, all that remains is darkness, and I, who no longer can touch anybody, would be swallowed up by the world of “nothingness”. That’s all.

  

  喜欢秋天。秋天虽然是短暂的季节,你却能从中感受到它为防御突降的寒冷而滋生的无限活力。

  

  I like autumn. Although autumn is a short season, you can still feel the infinite vitality generated by it to battle the sudden cold.

  

  人死后去的不是什么死后的世界,会不会是亲密的人的记忆?我爸妈、我的兄弟姐妹、我师父、我老婆,是不是都进了我记忆里。打个比方,就算你先死了,在我死之前,你应该都会在我的记忆里吧。

  

  If people, after their death, do not go to the so-called “the world after death”, then will they go to the memory of their close ones? Would my beloved ones like my parents, siblings, master and wife go to my memory? For example, if you die before I do, then you would always exist in my memory before I die.

  

  和记忆里的死者一起活到生命的尽头。不要觉得自己是活在过去。比起新认识的人,死去的知己更多。活在这个年龄,早就已经是这样。

  

  Live, together with the dead in your memory, until your life ends. Do not feel like you are living in the past. We have more dead confidants than new people we have met. Living at this age is already like this.

  

  “负责”这件事,不是指你跟她结婚就好了,而是要跟对方一起共度幸福的一生。

  

  “Responsibility” does not mean marrying her but refers to spending your lives together happily.

  

  父母的借口、父母描绘的安稳生活虽然和无聊相差无几,但他心里也清楚,这确实是最实在的东西。

  

  The excuses made by his parents and the stable life depicted by his parents are almost equivalent to boredom and monotony, but he clearly knows that these actually are the most real-life matters.

  

  也许“永远”就是任思绪在追求幸福的心情以及为之付出的努力中翻飞,就这么活着直到死亡那天。

  

  Maybe the word "forever" means letting your mind wander in the mood of pursuing happiness and the effort you put into it, and living until the day you die.

  

  “樱花也都谢了啊。”

  

  “还有明年呢。”

  

  “我们……还看得到明年的樱花吗?”

  

  “这不好说啊。就算我们看不到,明年也好后年也好,樱花都会开的,这不就够了吗?”

  

  “The cherry blossoms have all withered and fallen.”

  

  “There is always a next year.”

  

  “Can we still see the cherry blossoms next year?”

  

  “It’s hard to say. But no matter whether we can see them or not in the future, they will still blossom as usual. Isn’t that enough?”
