最华丽的冒险

Christy

The cheese is so tasty. 我说,it makes me miss Italy. When was your last time in Italy? 朋友问。Oh, I've been to Italy a lot. Last time was...5 years ago. How time flies! 说着,我的思绪飘到了西西里的阳光和暴雨,Napri的碧蓝海滩,邮轮上的惊艳日出,五渔村五彩缤纷的小楼,夕阳下佛罗伦萨大教堂的圆顶,梵蒂冈城的圣诞...我想起那时候和他们的点点滴滴,一种复杂的情绪涌上心头。


朋友说,if you want to live a boring life, keep dating different people; if you want to live an interesting life, get married. 我问,为什么呢。他说,you get so many different experiences with a person. 结婚、生子、为人父母……而在这期间,你们互相了解,面对困难,共同成长。过了几十年,还是这个人,确是不一样的感受。我说,it's so beautiful to view this way. 和你一起慢慢变老。I thought fall-in-love is beautiful. It was. But I came to understand what's more beautiful is you open up to know each other, work on living together, witness and support each other's growth and grow old together.  他微笑,说是的。


想起十年前看飞屋环游记Up,看到一篇影评<最华丽的冒险是与你相守>。那时的我,还一心想着周游世界,心中有无数的念想。也会被身边的他说的,去纽约出差,去Tiffany看了戒指而感动,但平凡而稳定的生活在我心中确是和无聊画上等号。过去的十年,发生了数不清的事情,事业、家庭、感情……我从一座城搬到另一座城,去了几十个国家,遇见无数的人,一直在路上。完成了许多心愿,却也走失了一些人。倒是折腾了这么久,我庆幸身边有几个始终关心我的好朋友,尤其是我的bffs(best friend forever),上海北京伦敦纽约香港,十几年间,我们见证彼此的悲欢喜乐,they're indeed my family. 想着生命中的这些温暖,更让我坚信时间的力量。历经种种,我总算明白,最美好的不是相遇,而是坚信相守。曾经我也很喜欢before sunset电影中的暧昧,如今确是感动于before midnight中的谅解。平凡琐碎,矛盾冲突,才是人生。Love is not just fantasy or a fairytale where everything works out just perfectly. It's rather making things work when they seem imperfect. And willingness to work together and belief it will work is what makes love more beautiful. 


以当时影评做结吧:

看Up的我二十出头,和儿时的Ellie一样,有着一颗梦想到处游走的心。我曾很多次背起包离开家,去到很远的地方。我也爬上过很高的山,穿越过无际的森林,看见过令人屏息的悬崖峡谷。我曾跟朋友说,无法想象能有什么可以让我放弃到处流浪的自由。而现在我想,也许我也会像后来的Ellie一样,心甘情愿地慢慢飘落下来,在那个人身边落地生根,与那个人一起长成两棵并肩的树。然后哪儿也不去了,就这么看着云朵和星辰在两人头顶的那小片天空日日变幻。就像Carl和Ellie那样,正因为是与你一起,那再小再琐碎的生活,都是华丽的冒险。


I think I'm ready. 

Cheers.
