A Brand New Day

Embedded video from CNN Video

Today is symbolic in so many ways. I watched part of the inauguration at the conference room in my office with my colleagues this morning, while my 5-year-old was watching it with his classmates and teachers at his school.

“We’ll be watching Barack Obama being sworn in as the President of the United States of America next Tuesday,” Genghis told me last Friday. I’m so proud of his sophisticated use of words.

We have satellite radio in the car. There’re a number of channels for each music genre. The ones we usually listen to are classic rock, chill out & reggae. During the election, the song below was played quite a lot in the Reggae channel & Genghis has picked up on it. Now every time we talked about Obama, he would sing, “Barack Obama, Barack Obama, Barack Obama, oi! Oi!”

兩周一聚:色彩

記得在小學時,我總會給不同的姓氏配上一種顏色,例如姓沈的是藍色,姓歐的是紫色,姓洪的是紅色,但姓黃的卻不是黃色,而是啡色。不要問我用甚麼準則分配,因為我到現在不知道。

於我而言,顏色就像文字一樣,只要用心的去看,你便會看穿它的心事。

鬱悶的時候,有人喜歡看齣喜劇,而我則會給自己添點顏色--塗上蜜糖色的眼影,粉紅的胭脂,酒紅的唇彩,或是穿上桃紅色的上衣,再踏上金色的跳舞鞋。

顏色,的確是有治療作用的。就像你現在埋頭埋腦的看着電腦屏幕,不妨找點綠色的東西來看看,紓緩一下眼睛的疲累吧!
