Awaken

那天一樣搭捷運上班,一樣前幾站都沒位子而站著,依然是右手拉把手,左手滑著音樂清單。頂多偶爾看看坐在眼前打著盹的女士,她戴著帽子和口罩,緊閉雙眼的面容顯得有些灰敗,像是有病痛的樣子。在她身旁的男子百無聊賴地滑著手機,不時抬頭注意是否已經到站。原本以為那是素不相干的兩人,卻在某一站列車進站前,看到男子輕輕握住他的妻子的手,微微地晃了兩下。妻子於是睜開雙眼,和丈夫靜靜起身,緩步離開車廂。

Everything Has Its Time

Ecclesiastes 3.1-11

Everything Has Its Time

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh,

“A time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace."
