守靈夜時吃到的壽司、便當及啤酒,都是這樣的感覺。
我也漸漸到了知道變得有點硬的壽司、冷掉的便當和微溫的啤酒能緩和人們多少情緒的年齡了。

我想,是他(餐廳老闆)以前去過許多美食、想過許多特色的經驗,才做出那樣引以豪的味道吧。所以,近中年期的人開的餐廳,今後會越來越有意思。

Nara Note by Yoshimoto Nara (2013)

把夢留在過去。
因為昨天做的夢,會告訴我今天應該做什麼事,
那就能在明天變成現實。
空想和想像只會從有可能發生的事情產生。
因為具備各種的要素,而且確實在眼前,
從那裡擁有的想像力所誕生的事物,全部都擁有可能性。

我不幻想做夢。
夢是在今天實行的事,總有一天會實現。

Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible: The Surreal Heart of the New Russia by Peter Pomerantsev (2014)

“London seemed so measured, so predictable; the America the rest of my émigré family lived in seemed so content; while the real Russians seemed truly alive, had the sense that anything was possible.”

“The English stack their sentimental junks and dirty secrets far away in the garden shed; the Germans have “Keller”, basements, deep underground to hide all their dark memories. But in Russia you just throw it on the balcony; just as long as it isn’t in the flat itself, who cares if the neighbours see? We’ll deal with all that rubbish some other time. It’s not even part of us.”
