第一場雪

今年北京的第一場雪,姍姍來遲。
據稱這是北京六十年來最晚的一場雪,但她終於還是來了,並終結了一百多天不降水,且直到昨天仍在不斷刷新的氣象記錄。
這是一場還算得上有規模的降雪,不但為乾燥的北京增濕,更為浮躁的人們去火。
最高興的,無疑是小孩子,以及那些還有童心的大人們。
他們忘記了體面,不顧一切的和雪親近。他們情不自禁的彎下腰,蹲在地上搓雪——堆雪人,滾雪球,做雪彈——打雪仗,追逐著,甚至滑倒、翻滾在白色的雪毯上,卻毫不在意,樂得其所。
從不動窩的辦公室白領中的一部分,也因難得一見的童心發現,終於暫時告別電腦桌,暫時走出安樂窩,暫時走進這白皚皚的世界。
可惜的是,她畢竟來得太遲。立春後溫度的回歸,已無法留住雪景,無法讓人同時逍遙、流連在冰的世界和雪的世界中。
拿起已經落了一層灰的吉他——不知放了多長時間,時間長到我完全沒有了印象——扒拉兩下,卻發現音色全無。跟著感覺簡單調整幾下後,我開始扒拉自己最熟悉的旋律,卻發現,彈琴的手不聽使喚,按弦的手勒得生疼。完全沒感覺。
澄清一下,我不會彈吉他,但我會幾個旋律。這其實一點也不矛盾。
最終,我好歹找回了那個小調,生澀的扒拉出來,很有成就感,也頗慶倖。
出門後,走在雪景中,想起高中時的一首歌。
“Fox In The Snow”
by Belle And Sebastian
Fox in the snow, where do you go
To find something you could eat?
‘Cause the word out on the street
Is you are starvin’
Don’t let yourself grow hungry now
Don’t let yourself grow cold
Fox in the snow
Girl in the snow, where do you go
To find someone who will do?
To tell someone all the truth
Before it kills you
They listen to your crazy laugh
Before you hang a right
And disappear from sight
What do they know anyway?
You’ll read it in a book
What do they know anyway?
You’ll read it in a book tonight
Boy on the bike, what are you like
As you cycle ’round the town?
You’re going up, you’re going down
You’re going nowhere
It’s not as if they’re paying you
It’s not as if it’s fun
At least not anymore
When your legs are black and blue
It’s time to take a break
When your legs are black and blue
It’s time to take a holiday
Kid in the snow, way to go
It only happens once a year
It only happens once a lifetime
Make the most of it
Second just to being born
Second to dying, too
What else would you do
Fox in the snow
