Solo Excursion

My heart felt like it, so last week I jammed in my camera before heading out for tuition/

那天又了一种莫名的冲动,所以出门之前把照相机塞进书包里。

Hopped onto the train, and found myself transported to a relatively empty park/

搭了地铁,随之不知不觉来到了湖边。

The sun was really bright, but not sweltering. It basked the entire park in a rosy glow. I, of course, tried to hide in a sheltered spot. Thankfully, the trees provided so much shade. I love trees. Civilization seems like light years away. Being there felt as though I had been pulled away from the hectic pace of life. It felt as though time has stopped. Like I had stepped into another existence where time was counted by the number of times you felt truly alive/

阳光明媚,但并不使人汗流浃背。整个公园都被太阳的耀眼烤得红通通的。我试着避开太阳的刺眼,而树正好给予适当的阴凉。我爱树!!!繁忙的城市似乎是那么渺小,那么远。远离那令人窒息的匆忙生活步伐,时间顿时随之停止。我仿佛步入了另一个存在,另一个时代,而时间不是以数字单位测量的。

The tree’s hair is better maintained than mine. Look at how luscious it is. If only I was small again, than I could tug at it and surf across the sky as if it were the sea.

瞧瞧这棵树把头发保养得比我还要好。真渴望自己能再次缩小,就能抓住这把头发,想像自己是滑过海洋一样滑过碧蓝的天空。

Really wanted to get lost in this tree maze, get lost in nature and get lost in myself. The trees are so graceful. There is an inexplicable serenity in being among trees. They are so stoic, peaceful and beautiful. They stay still and silently observe. They inhale the world’s troubles and exhale fresh life. There is something magnificent about them – and in this photo they look just like wrists. But whether thick or thin, they have such strong hold on life. I wish I was as strong and determined about living.

恨不得迷失于这树丛里,向大自然屈服,陶醉于自己的思维中。树们姿态太优美了。树静静呆着,静静观察着四周的一切。它们吸收了世界的烦恼,呼出了新生命。它们对生命的热诚,它们顽强的求生立志非常的伟大。

Just a few more shots. I think today’s excursion is best conveyed through pictures.

Honestly, I think trees can see things – they throw branches at certain people because you know, they deserve branches thrown at them. They shower leaves and flowers to certain people because they think they need cheering up. Everytime I pass by a tree or walk under them, I always find a leaf or two hidden in my hair afterwards. It’s the tree’s way of saying, I’m here for you.

人在做,树在看。

The holes in the leaves – a caterpillar’s presence. Then, the butterfly’s presence. I like how everything in nature is so interlinked.

Tried to flick my hair in a romantic way, but er. SAM_3405

Tissue paper flowers, I like to call them. Pick one up for free if you need to dry your tears.

纸花。要哭就随手抓一把。

Yeah, I’m a rebel like that. Walking in opposite directions.

逆着方向走,感觉自己像个叛逆小子似的。

Back to reality.

该回到现实了。

My favourite kind of trees.

我最喜欢的树。

This is the kind of illusions I see on my special seat – top deck of the bus, right corner, 2nd row. Where worlds collide and the lines of reality are blurred. Where people walk through buildings and trees clash against people and it’s all fine.

这是我在巴士里总能看到的幻境。是个世界颠倒,现实底线被模糊的梦境。人能像鬼穿过大楼,树能穿过人。

Tried to climb up the railings but couldn’t escape.

试着爬上,还是失败。

Separated by a piece of glass.

隔着玻璃。

2014-05-24 11.39.30

Empty bus-stops.

空荡的巴士站。

2014-05-24 11.41.34

Waiting impatiently.

不耐烦地等待。

2014-05-24 11.41.45

Finally here.

终于!

2014-05-24 11.43.06 2014-05-24 11.47.10 2014-05-24 11.47.39Out of the bus, waiting for my next adventure to begin.

我的下一个冒险之旅会是何时呢。

 

So basically that is my lake “adventures”. Mainly just mingling with trees. Sorry if my recent posts are filled with pictures – I’m just strangely obsessed with them. Will try to do my writing posts again.
