我的网络日志
在我慢慢褪色的世界里 2017-05-13 16:23:59

My world is receding


I can see you

I can touch you

And

I can hear you


The moment you were born

Your voice permeates the whole house

And

Permeates my whole heart


When you cry

When nothing else works

I sing you a song

You quiet down immediately


You giggle your smile

You shout out your excitement

You vent your anger

You cry for your pain


All are parts of the symphony

Of life

That light up the house

That light up my day


But my hearing

Recedes bit by bit

Your voice

Blurs bit by bit


I try to turn my ear

Closer to you

But I feel my world

Recedes further from you


Please sing me a song

Please read me a poem

Please tell me a story

Please play a piece of music


While my world

Is receding



在我慢慢褪色的世界里


喜看 轻抚和听见

出生的一瞬间

你的声音已嘹亮了世界

久久弥漫在心田


你的哭泣

我无招以应变

却在歌声中

让你渐渐入眠


你愤怒 激动的哭和笑

奏起这生活的乐章

明亮了全室

灿烂了我的日子


但我能听到的

越来越少

你的声音也

越来越飘缈


越凑近耳朵去听

却越觉世界之遥


请为我唱歌,诵诗

弹曲或讲讲故事

在我慢慢褪色的世界里…

今天先生在和儿子通电话时,发现自己的听力下降,听不清儿子电话里的声音,有感而创作了这首诗。

狮的低吟,诗的回声 2017-05-07 18:09:02

狮的低吟,诗的回声


一个人长大,总有很多幻想和苦恼,写下来,就成了诗。下面收集的,是家里老三的诗,经常写在小纸片上,读过了,也就丢了。父母总是喜欢孩子的作品,放在一起,也许,孩子长大了,会再读一遍。


老三做事很慢,写了篇蜗牛,一半是自嘲,一半是辩解


Snail Boy


They call me snail boy 

slow minded

I am not quick to work 

I am a procrastinator,

I've been told my tactics lack tact 

It's bad,

procrastination won't hack it in the real world.

 I can hear their mocking words loudest 

when the hands of the clock open doors to sleepless hours

 those nights I taste defeat because I'm salty bitter and sour, 

but I know that this is no time to cower, 

so I retreat into my shell and bring out my superpower

The Bam!  when my mind is in the throes of woes it's a showdown smackdown 

I'mma crack down on these packages

 til the time that it takes to make them know I'm no lightweight and they back down

I'm a math whiz, I practice Efficient tactics

fact is I love crackin books I’m a fact addict 

when a month's work is due I don't panic,

 get back at it faster than Danny and his white vans vines vanished 

and as surely as finish work with proficiency, 

what they call a last minute rush is merely efficiency 

People preach procrastination as sin and I don't call them out on false Doctrine 

so when people point me out and mocking my sins 

I low key tiptoe on leather toe moccasins

I don’t fight with them because they’re right.

Getting work done early is respectable but it doesn’t make me any less of an intellectual,

Being slow simply means I have to find the shortcuts in straight lines 

and tread the fine line between dead of night and dead lines, 

I never dreaded getting metaphorically beheaded over getting better grades or having x- marked red lines, 

I never let a letter get the better of me only part of me that’s missing is a better bed time.

And they say that procrastination is appalling

But it’s more of a mollusc workaholic rest calling

Me warning myself when I’m not in tip top shape

When I’m tired of life I’m okay with sleeping half of it away

When my first world problems don’t make me feel like trying

and studying falls apart and turns into student dying

When my emotional roller coasters are engineered to keep on falling

And I’m no Lebron but I still feel like bawling

Those are days when I’m most grateful to be a snail boy

Days when I’m glad priority one is napping

Or letting my mind meditate over whatever’s been happening

Cuz procrastination means that I put myself first

And productivity isn’t problem free,

 so for better or for worse,

I’ll let my problems free 

I’ll probably regret it in the morning

But not as much as I’ll regret not listening to snail boy’s warning.



优裕和忧郁,我们都希望过上衣食无忧的优裕生活,但优裕的生活往往导致忧郁


First world problems!!!! 


This is a part of me that I don’t share with others much

Cuz I like to have my problems hide inside me but I trust

That through writing these word I can open myself up

And I think I’ve suffered in silence for long enough


Mental health is hard to talk about already

It gets harder when people call me petty

Or whiny or weak, or to man up and fight

It hurts me when they say that cuz they’re absolutely right


First world probuhlems

I got a lot of them

I don’t  complain enough 

And so I go and bottle them

Up in my body 

when I really oughta be 

Vomiting them out like it’s spaghetti that mama eats


I’m so white washed my mando is limited

And my accent makes me sound primitive

I tell my relatives ever since I’ve known them

Dui bu qi, wo bu zhi dao zhongwen (对不起,我不知道中文)


It’s so stressful when I’m posing for a photo

If I don’t got sunglasses then my eyes go

Wider til they fit the white standards cuz I don’t

Want to be the joke because my egos only so-so


Punctuality is not in my reality today

It’s a fallacy that I would rather be awake

Rest in peace to all my goals of never being late 

By morning I’ll be mourning my ability to motivate


First world probuhlems, I got a lot of them

I don’t  complain enough 

And so I go and bottle them

Up in my body 

when I really oughta be 

Vomiting them out like it’s spaghetti that mama eats


I’m a little terrified of what the future holds

Cuz I’m lazy when it comes to planning future goals

So when people ask me what do you want to do

I tell them engineer because they tell me they approve


Homework turns me into the illest of all my villains

I lie to me despising me, I say that I’ll be filling

All my worksheets out it never ends up working out

The only thing I’m fulfilling is filling my infinite will too be chilling


My internet, you can bet, is out to get me 

Contrary to Telus, the future isn’t friendly

It’s so slow my teamates think I’m going AFK

If we are treated equally, why does my wifi lag?


First world probuhlems

I got a lot of them

I don’t  complain enough 

And so I go and bottle them

Up in my body 

when I really oughta be 

Vomiting them out like it’s spaghetti that mama eats


First world probuhlems

I got a lot of them

But I also got a lot a people I can vomit on 

Thanks for hearing me puke out all my probuhlems

Rhyming rants is therapeutic those are words I promise on


这是老三用切的口吻的演讲。切有五个兄弟姐妹,也有五个孩子,也许人多的家庭,更容易走上革命之路。


The future generation has come.

未来的一代已经来临


It is up to the common people to overthrow the past and live anew

这是普通人弃旧迎新的一刻

I have seen South America’s corruption through the defeated eyes of the poor, and the suffering and oppression caused by the capitalist regimes of the US.    

从穷人哀弱的眼裡映射的是南美的腐化官僚和被美国资本主义的痛苦压榨

Through my journeys across the continent, I have been changed.

南美大陆的穿越改变了我。          

I used to think that the best way to heal wounds was through medicine.

我过去以为药可以疗伤,

To fix people’s sickness through care, to help the poor through kindness

细心照顾可以治疗病人,善心善行可以帮助穷人。

I was wrong.

可我错了。

I hopped aboard a motorcycle with my friend Alberto, wanting to simply explore, and see the world for what it was.

我和我的朋友阿伯托跃上摩托车只为探索和看一眼世界的本来面目。

There, I saw the strength of the human spirit,

loyalty and solidarity beyond anything I could’ve imagined

but what I also saw, was the shivering flesh and blood victims of capitalist exploitation.  

在那儿,我看到了人类的精神力量,难以想象的忠诚和团结,但也看到了颤抖的身躯和被资本家剥削,受害者渗出的血液。

The inescapable poverty of the common people and the disgusting wealth of the landlords. 

普通人无法逃脱的贫穷和令人憎恶地主的财富。

I couldn’t treat a child because of a lack of money.

我无奈不治疗无钱看病的孩子。

I couldn’t accept his death as an unimportant accident.

我无法接受他的死亡象轻描淡写的一个事件。

I can’t heal a dying nation because no amount of medicine can cure corruption

我回春无力,没有足够的药能治疗腐败~一个正在死亡的国家

This is why I fight.

这就是为什么我抗争

Why I let bullets fly into the nation I am so determined to save

为什么让子弹横飞在我决意要拯救的国家

As a guerrilla, some call me a cold blooded killer. I would agree with them.

作为一个游击队员,有人称我“冷血杀手"我同意。

But to stand by as eyewitness to oppression is worse.

但袖手旁观欺压更可恶。

I will not back down when the revolution is ripe for the picking

当革命之果成熟待采,我绝不会后退

So stand up, let your voice be heard as gunfire and raise the red flag of rebellion.

起来,高举红旗,让枪代言,革命。

After all, it is better to die standing than to live on your knees  

毕竟,站着死好过屈膝活。



老三写的一首打油诗,在一次诗歌朗诵会上念过,听众笑得很开心,愿大家开心。


Dear Alfred J Gross


When you invented the walkie- talkie, the US military asked you to improve their communication systems.

Personally, I would've preferred if they asked you to improve the English Language.

Because forks would be called stabby grabbies,

burgers would be krabby patties so I would 

grab a stabby grabby to nub a krabby patty,

and the krusty krabby always has these yumy seafood dishes.

Instead of jelly fish you could eat the delishy squishy fishy,

and when you're having a moment and your body feels so sloppy

the tissue for any issue is here, but now it's called snotty scotties

and you probably named zangy tangys and laffy taffies 

but why not call tic-tacs ticky tackies

and if you got cool pants I'd say you got slicky slackies

even slicker is the cats and kit kats would be kitty katties

and obviously

backpacks would be backy packies

hackysacks would be hacky sackies

sharpies would be finey lineys

21 pilots would be finey rhymey

Shakespeare would be saddity tragedy

trains would be rickety rackety thing on a trackety

and a rich man from Iraq riding a train with a cool black pants and tic tacs and kit kats and hackysacks in his backpack would be a kitty katty, ticky tacky, hacky sacky, backy packy, rickety rackety thing on a trackety, slick black slacky, fat stack Iraqi.


Dear Alfred J. Gross,

Personally I would've preferred if they asked you to improve the English Language.

What a shame that they never saw the potential.

Because if you're into the Mario Kart, bananas wuld be slippy trippies

If you prefere elevators over stairs you would ride the niffy lifty.

Microwave informercials would say you likely like these eaty heaties.

Money would be needy greedy.

weeping willows would be griefy leafies. 

​wool pajammas would be lamby jammies or softy sheepy sleepies.

Night light would be nighty lighties

Park benches would be city sitties.

Finals would be exammy cammy

Slam jam would be slammy jammy.

And if you're crying more than a weeping willow because you're in your pajamas and want to go to sleep 

but you are burning the midnight oil to study for finals so you can get a job and make money

so you won't have to sleep on a park bench, which is why slam jam exists,

you would be more weepy than a griefy leafy half

龙图腾的含义 2017-05-03 01:00:56

龙图腾的含义

很多民族和国家的图腾,是具体的动物。俄罗斯是熊,泰国是象,罗马是狼。但中国的龙不一样,它有猛兽的头,鹿的角,蛇的身子,猛禽的爪子,平常呆在水里,有时飞在天上。龙是什么?龙是很多图腾的综合体,这表明中国人是很多民族熔合而成。

熔合过程中,不同的时代,不同的地方,不同部落的重要性不一样,龙的形象也会不同。在西藏,龙的头部是象,这表明象部落在藏民族的形成过程中,起着龙头的作用。

美是平均,美是不变的性质 2017-05-02 06:14:31


拍照的时候,如果曝光时间太短(感光度太高),照片常常出现噪声,或斑点。增加曝光时间(降低感光度),平均下来,噪音降低了,照片就会漂亮一些。但曝光时间太长了,手会抖动,照片又容易模糊。把照机放在稳定的三角架上,曝光时间可以很长,长时间平均,噪音很低,景色显得更加美好。

观察世界,如果时间太短,人世间的潮起潮落,充满了各种噪声。增加观察时间,长时间取平均值,噪声降低了,世界就会美好一些。但观察时间太长了,我们的心在变化,世界又容易模糊。如果我们的心平静下来,观察时间很长,不重要的事情都平均掉了,世界就显得更加美好。

织布的时候,经线是不动的,纬线在动。不变的经最重要,所以重要的书叫做经,象内经,圣经。

从生物学角度,不变动的东西,一直有用,所以值得大家学习,所以我们会觉得美。

颜色和温度 2017-05-01 22:52:36

颜色和温度


红色的光源,温度低,兰色的光源,温度高。为什么红色是暖色,而兰色是冷色?


在过去,生火大都用木头,火的温度较低,一般是红色,所以人们会把温暖和红色联在一起。


红色和其它长波段的光线容易被水蒸汽吸收。阴雨天的时候,透过云层的,大都是兰紫等短光谱。所以人们会把阴冷和兰光联在一起。


不知道上面的解释有没有道理,请指正。

风筝:孩子离家 2017-04-24 21:36:14



Kite

I made a kite
A beautiful kite
I  wish you could fly
In the sky 

I raise you high
I toss you in the sky 
I drag you against the wind
I try and try

You ride the wind 
High and high
You follow the wind 
Far and far

Your pull on the string
Tight and tight 
I let go of the string 
You are free to fly 

You dance fervently 
High in the sky 
As if to wave me
Goodbye

篝火 2017-04-23 06:17:55

Bonfire

Night 
Falls on the camp site
Moon 
Rises to the top of the sky 

Moon light
Pure and bright 
Shines generously on everyone 
Gives us cold comfort 

But at the camp site 
In this cold night 
We are shivering 
We are freezing 
We need bonfire 

We gather twigs from the woods 
Light up the fire 
Heavy smoke emerged from the damp wood 
We coughed and coughed 
But we need bonfire

We kneel down to the ground 
Blow hard into the smoke 
Tears drop from our eyes 
Sparks burn our faces 
But we need bonfire 

Finally, huge flames rise from the wood
It brightens our faces 
It warms our bodies 
It lightens our hearts 
It brings back laughter 

Huge flames
Dangerously close, dangerously hot 
But in a night when 
The moon is so distant and cold 
We need bonfire

简洁就是美 2017-04-22 07:25:42


为什么初学者的一幅画,拍出的照片,比原画好看?一个老人的照片,通常比本人精神?一个老人的声音,通过电话,显得年轻?是不是信号经过特别处理?一个朋友告诉我,信号并没有特别处理,只是数字化了。

年轻人的声音,杂音少,老年人的声音,杂音多。数字化(PCM方法)是一种离散化过程,杂音很多保存不下来,所以老人的声音也象年轻人了。书画也是一样,水平高的,线条简洁流畅,水平低的,好些多余的部分,数字化的过程中,简化了图象,所以变漂亮了。人也一样,年轻人脸部没有很多结构,岁数越大,结构越多,又是皱纹,又是斑点,又是白发,信息数字化过程中,特别是像素低的手机拍摄,很多具体的结构省略了,老人家也就变漂亮了。

一直以为电话的声音是专门处理过的,原来只是简化了。简洁就是美!

落日:致老去的人们 2017-04-20 12:42:31

He was once the midday sun
Shining 
Blinding 
He stays aloof and distant 
In the middle of the sky 

Now he is old 
And tired
Resting on the nearby hilltop 
Look over
The children on the playground 

Having exhausted most of his energy 
Only the red light remains
Weak, yet warm 
Soft, yet penetrating 
Calm, yet fiery 

He wishes 
You could come out of your house 
Stand in the open 
So he could embrace you 
With his last rays

AM is love 2017-04-19 21:42:37

Am is love, as in amorous, enamour, amicable . Amateurs are the ones who do what they love.  That is why great ideas are often initiated by amateurs. Mendel was a professional monk, and an amateur botanist. His discovery paved the way for genetics. 

There used to be easy flow between amateur and professional scientists. Take Einstein for example. He was an amateur when he was doing his most important works. And his contributions were acknowledged by the professionals immediately. But as the scientific profession becomes lucrative, the barriers between amateur and professional scientists become almost impenetrable. Today's stale environment of academics is largely due to the banishment of fresh ideas from the amateurs.

Nowadays, amateurs  are often belittled by the professionals. But amateurs should not belittle themselves. After all, one can never overestimate the power of love.
