Spectrum of Behavior


图片取自 Curling Up by the Fire

  We all fall on the spectrum of behavior somewhere. She puts one of her hand on one side of the table and her other grips the far side. Here's the spectrum. She says. It's a line and we're all on it. Some of us are farther along the line than others.

Finesse

  See? It's too hard!

  But you did it! All we're doing now is working on refinement. You just have to keep trying. It's all about finesse.

  Fin-NESS?


The Word Soon


图片取自 Curling Up by the Fire

  I don't like the word soon because you don't know when it's going to sneak up on you and turn into NOW. Or maybe it'll be the kind of soon that never happens. Like when I asked Dad and Devon when the chest would be finished. They said soon.

My Father Wrote My Speech


图片取自 Team Booktopia’s 2013 Favourites

  My father wrote my speech. In it he argued that if you want to do good, but do it in a bad way, that's still bad. In the same way, if you choose a good method to do something bad it's still bad. He ended it with Lincoln's words: 'it is far more honourable to fail than to cheat.'

Not My Islam!


图片取自 Team Booktopia’s 2013 Favourites

  Many students argued that the book should be banned and burned and the fatwa upheld. My father also saw the book as offensive to Islam but suggested: 'First, let's read the book and then why not respond with our own book.' He ended by asking in a thundering voice my grandfather would have been proud of, 'Is Islam such a weak religion that it cannot tolerate a book written against it? Not my Islam!'

四月二十七日


  不太想搭话的人来联络,有点讨厌。

  这种轻微的坏情绪,不在真正消沉前赶快治好就糟了。

  正好也没有工作压着,徒步两分钟去了健身会所,在游泳池里游了游泳。

Books are Not Like People


图片取自 Curling Up by the Fire

  I find thirty-two books in the library about how the Heart works. Dad talks with the librarian and says it's okay for me to use his card too so I can check out a lot of books. Some of them are kids' books and some are adult books but I can read anything because my reading score is so high they can't even rate it. When I was in Kindergarten I was above eighth-grade level and that was as far as you could get in Kindergarten. Now I'm in fifth grade which is why I can read anything Dad can.

人工驯养海豚的反思


图片取自 香港教育城

  在1975年成立的香港海洋公园,一直为公众提供康乐及教育主题公园设施。海洋公园虽然有众多元素,但其“王牌”还是海洋生物,包括海豚、海狮、鲨鱼及企鹅等。近年,海洋公园亦建立及强化其保育形象,在1995年及1999年先后成立保育基金及熊猫保育协会,后来合并为海洋保育基金,资助不同研究及保育项目。

  但令人惊讶的是,当追查海洋公园过往的海洋生物购买及死亡记录,便发现欢乐背后有一幕幕血泪史!翻阅鲸豚死亡的个案,便发现在1974至2002年间,已有过百条鲸豚死亡。它们主要是来自日本(包括恶名昭彰的太地、伊豆、台岐等地)、台湾澎湖、印尼等地以驱赶式捕捉法强行夺回来。当中海豚被驱赶入渔网内时,会先让水族馆人员挑选年轻力壮的海豚作贩卖,剩下的多被屠杀。所以进场看海豚表演,是间接助长捕捉鲸豚。鲸豚在园内为的存活情况亦欠佳,早年更有大量鲸豚不断死亡。

形象工程


图片取自 香港教育城

  保护区有其好处,但不得不强调它并非解决所有问题的灵丹妙药,反而成立保护区好比一把两刃剑,发挥不到其功用反令问题变得更为严重!以中国为例,在珠江口及厦门这两个中华白海豚国家级保护区,居然容许大型基建在区内进行,于是海豚在保护区的“照料”下,数量不升反跌。外界一般视这些保护区为“Paper Park”,意即“纸上谈兵”式的,令人误以为有关当局已尽力保护海洋资源,但实质只是虚有其表。

  在近期的一个地区性鲸豚会议上,从不同专家报告中不难发现,“保护区能保护鲸豚”此美丽误会,并非中国特有的“国情”。同样有完善法例规管保护区,却不积极执法的情况,在亚洲各国比比皆是。

看它变成害它?


图片取自 香港教育城

  我们接触大自然及其中生物的愿意是好的,但因为我们的贪婪、自私,及难以自制的占有欲,由看它变成害它,这不是很可悲吗?观豚活动的根源问题正是如此,只因为我们太想靠近而滋扰到它们。这样的旅游方式,最终只落得一拍两散 。

山中一个夏夜

山中一个夏夜
林徽因


山中一个夏夜,深得
象没有底一样;
黑影,松林密密的;
周围没有点光亮。
对山闪着只一盏灯———两盏
象夜的眼,夜的眼在看!

失读症周。A Nice Place


图片取自 Stepping Out of the Page

  So I got straight onto Google Maps and started searching. I put in our postcode and zoomed and scrolled around until I found the right place.

失读症周。To Be Good

  "What do you think it means, to be good?" she asked Marie.

失读症周。Heard the Feelings


图片取自 Barrington Stoke

  Sometimes, when she was so tired her whole body was sore and she could barely stay awake, Rosie would sit on the deck and stare at the stars, and often Jimmy would come and sit beside her. One time Rosie told him about the things that had happened to her before, when she had gone back in time to Spanish Armada and to World War I. She knew Jimmy didn't understand any of the words, but she thought perhaps he understood the feelings. One time, she cried as she spoke about Jack, the soldier she had met in Belgium, and Nurse Cavell, who had died such a sad and brave death. Jimmy held her hand.

失读症周。Empty Inside


图片取自 Barrington Stoke

  In the rest of the hospital, there were beds everywhere, each one with a man in it. Many were badly hurt. Some had bandages on their arms and legs. Some had bandages where their arms and legs used to be. Many of those ones lay very still, their faces pale in the harsh morning light, almost as if they were dead already.

失读症周。A Cruel Idiot

  "Don't let her drink yet," he told Rosie. "Walk her back and forth a bit first to let her cool down. Take the saddle off and rub her with this." He held out the cloth. "There's hay in the stable over there you can give her. Then let her drink. Cold water on a hot stomach's bad for a horse. You wouldn't want to do that to her."

  A man with a big grey beard stepped forward and said something in Pushtu. Sari nodded and answered him.

  "What was that about?" Adam asked.

失读症周。Do Ghosts Dream?


图片取自 Barrington Stoke

  With a swift movement he turned, took the silver box and bought it over. His hands stroked it, leaving muddy smears on the perfect oak leaves. He sat on the bed and looked at her. "I've dreamed of this."

  "Do ghosts dream?"

失读症周。Conchie


图片取自 Bounce

  Joe finished shoving the paper in. He got the matches out. "Anyway," he said, "he was a bloody conchie, wasn't he?"

  Conchie. The word came from before any of us were born. Mr Eustace wouldn't fight in the Second World War. He was against all war - he couldn't attack his fellow man. He was a conscientious objector. My dad and the other lads's dads went off to risk their lives fighting the Germans and the Japanese. But Mr Eustace was sent to jail instead, then they let him out to work on a farm in Durham.

失读症周。Love Without A Heart

  In the end, he sat up. There was something new in his eyes. "You don't have a heart beat," he said, and his voice shook. "You ... There's nothing there."

  "James," I said, "listen ..."

失读症周。Aftermath


图片取自 Barrington Stoke

  In Geography at school we'd learned about earthquake and tidal waves and hurricanes. And I learned a new word: aftermath. It meant what was left behind after the disaster had struck. All of the smashed cars and destroyed houses and dead people were the aftermath.

失读症周。So Very Much


图片取自 Barrington Stoke

  Kate thought about the book. She knew that books could make you laugh, or make you cry. They could be thrilling, or scary, or romantic. They could take you all around the world, and beyond. They could make you see things from some else's point of view. They could challenge you. They could help you understand. They could bring comfort. So much. So very much.

失读症周。The Easiest Thing in the World


图片取自 Barrington Stoke

  What about the fox and the photos? How did they move?

  Why do you think it took me so long to unscrew one light bulb? We always do something with photos if we can, but the fox was great. It was too good an idea to miss. And what I did with it worked really well.

  One month ago I was going to marry Dan.

  One week ago I was going to marry Sir William.

  Now I was going to marry Adam.

  Who would it be next week?

失读症周。She Just ... Understood


图片取自 Sally Nicholls

  The thing about Maddy was, she knew what that felt like. Maddy was the only person I could talk to about school. I told her all about Jade and Catherine. I told her how horrible it was to always have the wrong shoes, and the wrong bag, and the wrong hair. She knew how horrible it was to not have any friends. She didn't try and come up with ways I could fix everything, or tell me to try harder. She just ... understand.
