被 愛 感 覺

他是一位退休教授,跟老妻過著優游的生活,早上一起爬上小山崗舒展筋骨,下午他料理陽台的花草,又或看看雜誌,妻子則和朋友到咖啡室聊天。他們惟一的女兒,在美國定居。

月前的一個晚上,朦朧間他感到床墊濕了,是老妻尿床。他推推她,發覺她已沒有反應。

「節哀順變。」不少親戚朋友說。「謝謝關心,我會的。」

他極有禮貌地回答,沒失方寸,一派學者風範。

暗地裡,他部署一切。

花草贈給鄰居,向人借的書籍郵寄送還,然後,走上律師樓立遺囑。全部準備好了。在月圓的晚上,銀光薄薄的灑滿一室,他亮起微黃的檯燈,寫下最後的遺言。

面前,是一瓶藥丸。

瓶子上,他看見老妻微笑。就在他打開瓶蓋的時刻,電話響起。他拿起電話筒,一把熟悉的聲音傳來:

爸爸,我在機場,我好想陪陪你。」他猛然醒覺。 老教授向我說完他的故事,喝一口香片,緩緩道: 「最有效防止自殺的東西,不是學術修養,不是心理醫生,不是豐厚財富, 原來是一種簡簡單單的 。」

True Love

Ha! this has really brought up your attention very quickly! not a bit surprised.

The oldman's action has told me that how deeply his love is and how much he has devoted to his beloved wife, I really valued the bonds between him and his wife. There is really nothing wrong with the choice he is about to make which would hold them together forever. To him, that might be the most beautiful thing he ever wanted -- head towards the eternity with her (we really should leave the justification to each individual).

But to the daughter, yes, it's a selffish act, which would leave her suffering for a long time, it's not fair to her at all.

I valued the liberation in the spiritual level, not in reality of course, but we really couldn't deny the romantic story which touches our hearts and made the world so beautiful.

That is a very striking perspective, but it's also very inspiring. Let me think !!! Can I say I admire the liberation in the spirtual level, but I still wish everyone could be loved with respect in the reality. Life has countless lessons in the reality?

一個感人的愛情故事竟讓一通電話給糟蹋了.

I don't get you. Do you think it is a better ending if the phone didn't ring, if the man didn't answer the phone, if the daughter didn't let her father know she cares for him?

Lots of questions. Life life life....

Difficult to undertand!
