林一峰的《随身听,随心唱》一直都是我心爱的旅游书。
不知道什么时候,
自己才能那么潇洒地一样,
能放下手边的一切,
“随身听,随心唱”呢?

一名前同事email了我一篇文章,
说的是“gap year”,
出奇地还有我欣赏的旅游作家褚士莹说的一番话,
特地摘录和大家分享:

Gap就是一條溝。大學畢業找不到方向,可以是一條溝;找不到工作的熱情所在,也是一條溝,」知名旅遊作家褚士瑩認為,人生並不只是一條直線,而是在人生的每一個轉換階段,都常常會出現一條「溝」。   

過去,「亞洲人就算看到了生命的『溝』,也不敢停下來,因為害怕落後大多數人。而西方人習慣對自己誠實,看到『溝』就跳進去思索,直到清楚明白,才跳出來,繼續人生的下一個階段,」褚士瑩認為跑得快的亞洲人,常常跑錯人生方向,又不敢回頭或修正,到頭來不一定比西方人快,最後甚至落得一個「事倍功半」的人生。

觉得自己的确有点处于gap year的感觉,
但是要真的放开手,
停下来,又需要多少的勇气呢?

  2. 其实,我一直都觉得你已经很潇洒,很有勇气了。但是,人真的会有完全满意自己生活状态的一天吗?可能当你做到你一直想做的事/以你一直认为你想要的方式生活时,你向往的又会是另一种生活。Dunno whether I'm making sense...but wat I'm trying to say is perhaps it's difficult for humans to be fully satisfied with the kind of life they're leading....

  3. Hey Bryan,

    First of all, I WOULD LOVE TO GET MY HANDS ON THIS CHINESE TEXT THINGY, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START AND HOW TO DO IT! DAMN...

    Chill bro, life is like a box of chocolate... blah blah blah. You know better to enjoy the most out of it, live to the fullest yo.

    Also, it's refreshing to read your blog since it's mandarin copy and most of my pals & fellow colleagues are really dinosaurs when comes to reading them. Well, what the heck with them, wahaha.

    Anyway, would like to hear from you more and also, should you come across any interesting read, do recommend to me, I'll go check them out if it's worth the $ for me to buy and read them, better still if they're available in our library.

    Cheers dude, Enjoy Life Alrighty.
