空虛的新年

今天(昨天)下午經過咖啡店見到這杯……

童年時,期待長大,每逢新年、農曆新年、生日等,都會感到很興奮:總會許願,雖然願望通常落空;又會決心改變某些陋習,雖然通常幾天便故態服萌……

年紀越大,新年生日等日子越覺空虛。它們彷彿提醒你,過去一年如何一事無成,人生如何停滯不前。很多朋友早已成家立室生兒育女,能見面的機會自然越來越少,還好我做兒童心理學研究,也很喜愛小孩,所以跟他們見面時仍有共同話題。

數個月前,我家附近的公屋村新入伙,環境變得很雜。每天上班搭西鐵,已經提早一小時上班避開繁忙時間,乘客還是多了幾倍,於是,出門上班已經感到煩悶。更叫人心煩的是,部份人沿途還不停抽很臭的大陸煙。當年在大陸公幹,其中一樣最討厭的就是四處的大陸煙味,就連本身一天抽兩盒煙的同事也說很難頂。現在,竟然在家附近也會嗅到那種反胃的氣味。
