走进东非 - 旅行与读书

“旅行也许改变不了什么,但时间好像换了个样子”

平时静不下来的心,在旅途中,少了许多日常琐事的纷纷扰扰,终于可以一心一意,认真读上几本书了。即便是枯燥的,或是深奥的,在单调无趣的飞机上,或是夜深没有网络的旅馆床上,书是温暖的,手不释卷。

2012世界末日的大溪地之旅,读的是应景的《月亮和七便士》。画家高更的一生,现代人的眼里,十足的自私自我,离经叛道。中年抛妻弃子,放弃人人羡慕的中产生活,流离失所中学习绘画,最终病死在大溪地的荒岛。当年的大溪地可不是你如今看到的度假圣地。然而,艺术的隐约天赋加上后人的推崇,他却成就了一段传奇。人物传记放在平时,我是绝对懒得读的。只是在大溪地简单的日子里,每天潜水看鱼,吃着方便面,喝着洛杉矶偷运去的酒。闲聊之余,和虫儿她们听着歌,吃着零食,有一搭没一搭,居然也看完了。

去年圣诞节墨西哥Los Cabos 度假,读的是《上帝掷骰子吗?》。之前读书时读不懂的量子力学,这会儿,在老莫热情奔放的音乐节奏中,却也是看的如痴如醉。薛定谔的猫,普朗克的常数,波与粒子的争执。。。释卷而叹,那是多么多姿多彩的人类发展时代,百家争鸣,大师辈出。而如今,丰富的物质生活之下,却掩映不住科技文明进程的裹足不前,有的,只是我们工匠层次的腾挪。

这次非洲之行带的书,则是更加应景,临走之前在网上现抓的,《末日逼近》。连篇累牍的埃博拉病毒新闻中出游,许多朋友的眼里,算是舍命又舍财了。这个世界的明天会比今天好吗?米田共真的会上风扇吗?也许这是测试你是乐天派还是悲天派的最好问题。

然而,还是喜欢《我们始终牵手旅行》多一些,喜欢那一句:“爱情迟早褪去激情,唯有我们始终牵手旅行”。在那些平凡琐碎的日子里,我们曾经一同走过很远很长的路。世界很大,大到我们可以一直走下去。

想来,我应该算是乐天和悲天的综合体。
