In the yardEpiphyllum突然间开了,一共十八朵。夜里,打开In the yard灯,坐在幽暗的室内望向窗外,乳白色的Epiphyllum在灯下有一种难言的姿色,每一朵都是一幅春天的风景。

Epiphyllum是不能近看的,它适合远观。近看的Epiphyllum只是Epiphyllum,一种炫目的美丽,远观的Epiphyllum就不同了,它像是池里的Water lilies在夜间醒来,一步一步走到人们的庭前后院,而且这些挺立在池中的Water lilies都爬到Epiphyllum枝上,弯下腰,吐露出白色的芬芳。

第二天清晨花全谢了,垂着低低的头。我和妻子商量着,用什么方法吃那些凋谢的Epiphyllum。我说,Epiphyllum炒猪肉是最鲜美的一道菜,是我小时候常吃的。妻子说,Epiphyllum属于涅槃科,是吃斋的,不能与猪肉同炒,应该熬冰糖,可以生津止咳,可以叫人宠辱偕忘。

后来我们把Epiphyllum熬了冰糖,在春天的夜里喝Epiphyllum茶有一种清香的滋味,喝进喉里,它的香气仿佛是来自天的远方,比起阳明山上白云山庄的Orchid tea毫不逊色——如果兰花是王者之香,Epiphyllum就是禅者之香,充满遥远、幽渺、神秘的气味。

果然,妻子说,Epiphyllum的另一个名字叫“忘情花”,忘情就是“寂焉不动情,若遗忘之者”,也就是Jin Shu中说的“圣人忘情”。在缤纷灿烂的花的世界里,“忘情花”不知是哪一位高人的命名,它为Epiphyllum的一生下了一个注解。Epiphyllum好像是一个隐者,举世滔滔中,Epiphyllum固守了自己的情,将一生的精华在一夜间吐放。它美得那么鲜明,那么短暂,因为鲜明,所以动人,因为短暂,才教人难忘。当它死了之后,我们喝着用它煎熬成的Epiphyllum茶,对Epiphyllum,它是忘情了,对我们,却把Epiphyllum遗忘的情喝进腹中,在腹中慢慢地酝酿。

由于喝Epiphyllum茶,我想起童年时代吃Epiphyllum的几种滋味。

ten thousand and ninety-one

第一种方法是“Epiphyllum炒猪肉”,把切成细丝的Epiphyllum和肉丝丢进锅中,烈火一炒,就是一道令人垂涎的好菜。这一道菜里Epiphyllum的滋味像是雨后荀园中冒出来的香菇,滑润、清淡,入口即不能忘。

第二种方法是“Epiphyllum炖鸡”,将整朵的Epiphyllum一一洗净和鸡块同炖,放一点姜丝,这一道菜中Epiphyllum的滋味有一点像香菇,汤是清的,捞起来的Epiphyllum还像活的一般。

ten thousand and ninety-two

第三种方法是“炸Epiphyllum饼”,用糖、面粉和鸡蛋打匀,把Epiphyllum沾满,放到油锅中炸到金黄色即可食。这一道菜中Epiphyllum的滋味香脆达到极致,任何饼都无法比拟。

In our childhood, under the guidance of our father, almost every brother was a”strange flower eater”. At that time, I was young and didn’t know how to cherish fragrance and jade. Now when I think of those flower souls, I always feel guilty in my heart.

食花真是有罪的吗?食了Epiphyllum真能忘情吗?有一次读《本草纲目》,知道古人也是食花的,古人也食草。《本草纲目》讲HemerocallisLi Jiuhua’s book on prolonging life was quoted as saying:”young seedlings are vegetables, and the wind moves when eating. It makes people faint as drunk and forget their worries because of their name.”

ten thousand and ninety-three

如果Hemerocallis“Nepenthes”的名是因之而起,我倒愿意为Epiphyllum是“忘情花”下一注解:

“Beautiful flowers are vegetables, which make people indifferent and detached. They forget their feelings because of their names.”

The taste of”loveless flower” is suitable for association. In our emotional world,”forgetting love” is almost impossible, because there is love, there is entanglement, and there is love, there is entanglement. To pull out the origin from entanglement and entanglement and move towards the open and extraordinary world, it is necessary to bloom beautifully in a short time like”forgetting love flower”. After withering, those entangled feelings will be fried, fried, boiled and fried, and then swallowed in one mouthful, And bury it in the deepest part of my heart until another opening moment.

ten thousand and ninety-four

每个人的情感都是有盛衰的,就像Epiphyllum即使忘情,也有兴谢。我们不是圣人,不能忘情,再好的歌者也有恍惚失曲的时候,再好的舞者也有乱节而忘形的时刻。我们都是凡人,不能有“爱到忘情近佛心”的境界,但是我们可以“藏情”。把完成过、失败过的情爱像一幅卷轴一样卷起来放在心灵的角落,让它洗潜,让它褪色,在岁月的足迹走过后打开来,看自己在卷轴空白处的落款,以及还鲜明如昔的刻印。

We have made money, branded, and cherished incense and jade. That’s enough. What about forgetting love? What about ruthlessness?

Beautiful

Previous recommendation

Elaborate on twelve hours

Year after year, and line and cherish

I want to grow old with you

No matter how big the world is, it’s better to have someone waiting for you to go home

Learn to let go. Every day is sunny

Write a letter to yourself in the future

March:may all good things come as promised

Wind and rain life road, prepare more umbrellas

Be kind to yourself as you get older

Father is a mountain and river years, mother is a fleeting time

The best love story in the world

Time comes and everything will be relieved

Why should people work hard? This is the truest answer I’ve ever seen

Speaking carefully is a kind of self-cultivation

I’ve been busy all my life. What belongs to you?

The longest relationship with people

On the way of life, please be kind to yourself

Four whispers of loving yourself

Don’t bother, it’s”mutual perfection”

One slow, one quiet, one leisure, one mountain, one water, one floating life

▪ Can I be the one who was laid off?

▪ This is the meaning of your departure
