客栈?室友?Inn? Roomie?

My little room is also not so bad. The biggest convenience is: I have a computer again!

烟雨朦朦,润物无声。



Rain and fog moisten things silently.



空结束了近四个月的法语基础学习,四月中旬放假一周。大好花季,岂容错过?



In mid-April, after Kong had finished nearly four months of French based learning, he was on his holidays for a week. How could the flowers blooming in spring be missed?



下班回家,空丢给我一句话:“我去接个朋友,请将我的上铺整好,我的朋友要来住几天。”



When I came home from work Kong threw these words to me: "I’m going to receive a friend. Please put the top bunk in order, since my friend will stay here for a few days."



在空大二寒假时,我接待过他的高中同学肥仔,那是一小段极幸福的日子,肥仔吃我做的所有的菜,使我的空也多吃了些东西。



In the winter vacation of sophomore year, I had received Kong’s high school classmate Fei Zai, which was a small phase of very happy days. Fei Zai ate all the food I made and made my Kong eat something more also.



独生子女就是难养,小时候奶奶为了空吃西瓜,将邻居小朋友也请到家来,两人比赛吃西瓜。



One-child is difficult to bring up. When Kong was in childhood, grandma made Kong eat watermelon. The neighbor’s kids were also pleased come home with him. Now two kids were in competition to eat the watermelon.



空很晚才跟客人一起回来,小伙子见面就说:“阿姨,打扰你了。”两个床铺全部都换上了干净的床单和被子,还专门腾空了一边衣柜给客人放行李。空睡到了他最爱的上铺。小伙子是来武汉拍片的,他跟空大概是搭档。晚上下雨也去拍夜景。



Kong came back with his guest very late. The young man met me and said: "Aunt, sorry to bother you." Two beds were all changed into the clean sheets and quilts, and I emptied a chest to devote to the guest’s luggage. Kong slept in his favorite top bunk. Kong’s friend came to Wuhan to shoot some film. He was probably partnering with Kong on a film project. On one occasion, they went to shoot during a rainy night.



小伙子带来了好些女生的漂亮服装,两条白色连衣裙弄得好多泥,我赶紧帮忙洗干净。还有一件白色婚纱,看来两人都挺专业的。



The young man had brought some beautiful girls’ clothing, but two white dresses were covered in a lot of mud. I hastened to help with the washing to get them clean for the project. There was also a white wedding dress to be used. Both of young men looked quite professional.



他们忙出忙进,一餐饭也不在家吃,只回家睡觉。空将他妈妈的家当成客栈了。我家这地点的确不错,东湖、武汉大学、汉街近在咫尺,去汉口江汉路也很方便。



They were so busy that they didn't have their meals at home. They only went home to sleep, so Kong took his mother's flat as an Inn. The location of my apartment is really good, since East Lake, Wuhan University, and Han Street are all close at hand. Travelling to Jianghan Road in Han kou is also very convenient.



一周小假很快过完,客人离去,空马上进入最后180节课的法语学习考前冲刺阶段。六月底,七月初就要考试了。经过那忙碌的一周假期,空变得根本不爱在家吃饭了。他还对我在他朋友面前唤他的小名非常反感。



A week’s vacation had soon passed and the guest had left. Kong immediately entered the final sprint of 180 lessons of French learning before the test. The test is coming up in late June and early July. After the busy week of holidays, Kong disliked eating at home. And he was very disgusted to be called his nickname in front of his friends.



我只能当他是我的室友,我们换个房间吧,冬天小房间的暖气最烫,空在里面经常只穿短袖T恤。现在马上将进入夏季,大房间凉爽。忙乎了一个中午,两个房间全都整饰一新。跟空发短信,叫他回家吃晚饭。空真的放学很早就回家了。



I now just treat him as my roommate and we have exchanged rooms. The small room’s heating in the winter was the hottest, so Kong often wore short sleeve T-shirts while inside. Summer is coming now and the big room is cooler. I spent a noon hour making sure the two rooms were all neat and trim, then sent Kong a short message asking him home for dinner. Kong went home very early from school.



五一放假四天,空笼闭一室,我在厨房做家务,大家都能心安理得。看来空很享受他的大房间。大房间与阳台的隔墙早被拆除,阳台全部装上了玻璃大窗,与房间连成一体,云月朦胧,柔丽可爱,微雨初晴,凉风习习。



The May Day holiday lasted for four days and Kong stayed inside caged in his new room. I did housework in the kitchen and both of us felt at ease. It seems Kong enjoyed his big room. The wall between the big room and balcony has been demolished and fitted the big windows, so the balcony with the big room formed a whole. With hazy cloud and moonlight, the color is of a subdued tone. The gentle rain has stopped and the sky has cleared up. A cool breeze is blowing.



我的小房间也不赖,最大的方便是,我又有电脑用了。



My little room is also not so bad. The biggest convenience is: I have a computer again!



当空留学法国,孤独漂零,能回想起他武汉的室友吗?特别是在这样的傍晚,久雨初晴,天清人静,仰望天空,即兴吟诗:



“寂寞闲庭春丽久,



可曾遥念故乡人?”



While studying in France, on his lonely roam in a foreign land, how will Kong recollect his roomie in Wu han? How would he remember me at dusk, during the calm, after a long rainy day, while looking up at the sky?



Extempore verse:



“Beautiful spring is long in quiet courtyard,



Do you long for old friends of hometown?”



妈妈的小屋,总有机会被空当据点利用一下,欣慰至极。来年四月,还是这样的日子,雨停止了。微风敲竹,清音悦耳;云破月来,银光皎洁。似这般好天良夜,真有无限清幽之趣。答诗云:



“一帘幽梦寻往事,亲心如此古来无。



衣锦还家风采美,娘亲喜见玉郎归。”



Mother's cabin always has a chance to be stronghold used by Kong and I am extremely gratified by this. In April of next year, in days such as these, the rain will have stopped. A soft wind will brush the treetops, sweet sounding; the moon, shining brightly, will have broken out of the clouds. On such a pleasant evening, there is really a feeling of incomparable quiet and beauty.



Respond verse:



“Thinking about old fantasies behind the pearly curtain,



Such mother’s love has never been from ancient times.



Back home with graceful bearing,



Mother is surprise when son returns.”

Cao Hui, this post was remarkably well done, and really did provide us a lovely picture of your last days with your son as they are unfolding. Maybe Kong has mellowed a bit in his quest for independence, and maybe you have mellowed a bit in your need to be a mother, because it seems your relationship with Kong is finally evolving nicely into what should develop between a parent and their offspring as that child becomes an adult, and that is a deep and abiding friendship.

I personally think this is one of your finest posts ever. Thank you for a touching read.

Hell Panda,

yes, I agree with John that this was a beautifully written article, thank you for sharing it with us.

I had to laugh when you said,

"When Kong was in childhood, grandma made Kong eat watermelon. The neighbor’s kids were also pleased come home with him."

Watermelon is indeed one of those universal fruits that's loved by just about everyone. Show me a person who doesn't like watermelon andf I'll show you someone who is very unusual!

It reminded me of my last trip to China. If I became hungry during my sight seeing journeys, I'd buy a watermelon from a street side vendor, get it sliced into pieces, then I'd walk down the street with my face plastered in the melon, merrily spitting out seeds into the gutter, having a wonderful time indeed.

You also asked rhetorically,

"While studying in France, on his lonely roam in a foreign land, how will Kong recollect his roomie in Wu han? How would he remember me at dusk, during the calm, after a long rainy day, while looking up at the sky?"

My feeling is that distance makes the heart grow fonder. So Kong's thoughts and appreciation of you should increase, when finally his dream of being in France is realised. In addition to this, as he grows older and more mature, both his understanding of - and love for - his dear mother should expand also.

Second respond verse

A mother's love will never wane
Despite the troubles, the growing pains
Then all too soon, life passes by
With stormy clouds, azure sky
Who once was young, now is old
Heart stops, body cold
So live life well, do your best
As before too long, body will rest

Hi Panda!
现在你一想到空要离开你去到远远的法国,一定很难受吧?(hug)我很理解你的感受,我儿子有时去他父亲那里一个晚上不回来我都会不习惯。
但是我相信将来有一天,他一定会感谢你今天所做的一切。
我上个月去了一次欧洲出差,当我第一次踏入德国欧式雄伟而有古老的火车站时,那种冲击让我热血沸腾,我当时心里想,如果时间回到10年前,我一定也会想来欧洲学习的。(nod)

Panda,

好美的文字,我仿佛在你和你儿子身上看到将来我和我儿子的影子,谢谢你的分享。

@JohnAbbot,
@gongjifang, @shlshl, @Barry1, @Enyaluo1977, @Nora1216,
The Chinese words are more beautiful. I try my best to interpret Chinese phrases with four characters and the archaic style poetries in English. I just stricke off a good description of the scene, if all we identify with is our story, we forget the complete perfection that exists in the present moment. The story is quite flat, which aims at the creation of a void state. So wave to imagine the wings to appreciate the mood to create poetry, poetry would need God.

@panda2009

I love the idea of the 'complete perfection of the present moment.'

We can get caught up in our own narrow views of the world and the events we see taking place although they are one small part of a large and complex puzzle. I sometimes have trouble remembering that things in our world are developing exactly the way they were intended.

From everything you have said, it seems that Kong has developed into a remarkable young man and you are right to be proud of him.

看到这样的房间,虽然温馨,但是,是不是太孩子气了?看起来不像个成年人的房间,你希望自己的孩子表现的像个成年人一样,不要叛逆,但是能不能从改变他房间的风格做起呢?据我所知一个22岁的男人住在这种风格的房间,怎么能表现他的成熟和稳重呢?从感情上来说,我认为不是孩子离不开你,是你对孩子的依赖太多,你应该学会独立才是。不好意思,和你的观点不同。

没想到有人喜欢看图说话。怪我大意,图说没写中文,现补上中文图说:“我的小房间也不赖,最大的方便是,我又有电脑用了。”

在我搬进这样的房间以前,这样的双层床接待过他的两个朋友,蛮实用的。

这个22岁的男人真正就在这个房间呆过最近一个冬天。这其实是个客房,我这个家长期只住我一个人。儿子十二岁就离开我跟爷爷奶奶去了珠海。我以前博文反复讲过多次。

既然不想看我的博客,干脆也别像小学生似的跑这儿来看图说话。你这不是真想发表什么观点,这叫“冷暴力”。真正喜欢读我文章的人不会写匿名评论。这篇博文内容并没涉及你所谓观点的信息,而正是相反的信息。
