總是在夢想周邊徘徊的人生

小時很想學小提琴,最初的原因極無聊:看福爾摩斯故事,知道福爾摩斯沉思時會拉小提琴;後來,不記得甚麼場合,聽到小提琴演奏,被那種既哀怨又優美的聲音深深吸引。跟媽媽說想學,但原來小提琴要換幾次,師奶想法的媽媽認為不化算,要學也等身高穩定下來才學……

我死心不息,經常重提很想學小提琴。那時,碰巧姑姐移民,鋼琴要找人收留,媽媽說了句「一樣架啫。」我就由想學小提琴變了學鋼琴。現在自然明白學鋼琴也不錯,學會看五線譜和樂理,而且,鋼琴差不多算是學樂器的起點(你看現在學校收生說樂器不計算鋼琴就有幾多人學)。但當年總心有不甘,始終鋼琴非我所欲。

學了兩年,準備考四級,升中一。中學新生日(「新生」日,非新「生日」),有中樂團和管樂團表演招生。我想學吹flute,但flute很貴,要四位數字。再加上管樂團每月二百元學費,中樂團只需百二。結果,再次因為錢的問題,我又選擇了非我首選的樂器和樂團。
