每次放假前夕﹐總覺得手頭上有許多許多工作還未辦妥﹐心裡面老是有一把聲音跟自己說﹕「我又選了一個不適當的時候放假。」雖然﹐在社會打滾也近十年﹔雖然﹐也開始明白到「公司裡的事情是永遠沒完沒了」的道理﹐可是﹐我始終無法消滅放假前心裡面那一種罪惡感。我依然覺得有點對同事﹑老闆﹐以至公司不起﹐竟然未能夠在放假前把手頭上那些老早希望完成的工作辦妥。

這一次﹐也沒有例外。

望著月前自己給自己寫下的那個「每月要完成的事」的備忘錄﹐那罪惡感又隨然而生。或者﹐也覺得我太過緊張﹐聽著我交代我自己手頭上那幾個項目的進度時﹐老闆不禁要暗串道﹕「你也不過是早我們兩日半放假罷了。況且﹐全世界都在準備聖誕。所有事情都要留待新年後才可以解決。」無疑﹐我也知道我是緊張得有點過份。可是﹐我實在不能夠讓放假心情提早來臨。畢竟﹐這是我的家教﹕「吃君之祿﹐擔君之憂。」

不過﹐每次假期完結前﹐我也會暗嘆假期的短促。畢竟﹐自小最能夠體驗「光陰似箭﹐日月如梭」這個道理的時候﹐總是假期結束之前。想著想著檯頭上那一份又一份未完成的工作﹐我不禁盼望能夠多放一個星期的假。放假教人最興奮的地方﹐就是能夠讓自己幸福地遠離煩惱。每天睡醒起來﹐要想的第一件事情﹐便是到哪兒嬉戲﹑到哪兒花錢﹐那不是煩惱﹐那是幸福。

這一次﹐也沒有例外。

準備從奧蘭多飛往紐約時﹐我便開始為我的假期倒數﹐也開始後悔竟然讓自己睡得那麼的多﹔準備從紐約飛到倫敦時﹐我繼續在倒數﹐同時候﹐也開始想起那些放假前未完成的事情。當然﹐更加後悔自己未能練成不眠不休的神功﹐去好好享受大蘋果這一個迷人的不夜之城。於是﹐在倫敦的幾天裡﹐我逼令自己睡得更少。我要在限的時間裡延長那個短短的假期。

一切也終於完結了。兩個星期的假期也終於完結了。當然﹐是幸福地完結了。因為﹐還要上班。在這個年頭﹐依然能夠上班﹐是幸福的。跟在一個短短的假期裡﹐每天醒來﹐「苦惱」要到哪兒嬉戲﹑到哪兒花錢一樣。

從來﹐幸福就是能夠擁有一些別人希望得到卻沒法子享有的東西。

承蒙 上天眷顧。我知道﹐我是幸福的。

The last time I was there, the twin towers were still standing. So, where did you go? Were you on top of the Empire State?

Best wishes for the New Year!!!

cha,

thanks. i just believe that one has to treaure the moment when one can still call oneself lucky. so why not happy, even facing such an economic uncertainty? right?

right. one month to go. take care and wish you a happy new year.

may,

i'm fine. thanks. obviously, you haven't received anything from me.

i'd say if i've ever ditched hk for london then it's easy for me to do that again. this time to london. nyc is such an amazing city. easily more attractive than london. at least, more theatres. and more night out spots.

yes, i went to nyc once which was fifteen years ago. unfortunately, in an escorted tour. so you may understand why i can only feel the city this time.

okie, one drawback. if one doesn't have any access to internet in nyc like a tourist of me, one will know nothing about football (the sport that the american call soccer).

Hi 微豆,

Thanks. Hope you'll have a happy new year.

No, I didn't climb the Empire Building. Instead, I went to the Top of the Rock.

MoMA, Times Square (definitely cuz I stayed in the Times Sq), Downtown etc. Not many cuz the trip was short. Only four nights (three days effectively). For sure, not enough. NYC is just so amazing.

Is Canada very cold now?
