    畫畫筆記(三十):Faber Castell

    原本以為Faber Castell 9000 鉛筆不及Caran d'Ache好,它較硬,相同的8B深度不及Caran d'Ache深,但其實各有各好。

    Faber Castell的石墨粉末不易掉出來,
    如果你想用手捽,做污糟爛撻撻的效果,它不好捽,幫唔到你;
    但如果你要寫美術字、做字形設計,它不會掉粉塵,細線可以好銳利,不會令你失望。

    餐牌

    由於不是食家,常常靠目測去判斷:
    掛在牆上的餐牌,寫得一手好字,字體正氣者,通常都很不錯。
    即使遇到不好吃,但字寫得靚,我會原諒佢,下次也會光顧。

    為甚麼美麗的東西被拆毀

       Above all, then, we must begin by educating, instructing - training - the child's will. This in itself implies an emphasis on an artistic approach. For instance, when teaching writing we do not immediately introduce the letters of the alphabet in their present form because these have already become quite alienated from human nature. Rather, we begin by letting the children paint and draw, an activity that is a natural consequence and externalization of their will activities and that in turn leads to writing.

       (...) In relation to writing, we find two types of child. This becomes especially evident when we guide them towards writing through a kind of painting. One type of child learns to write in a way that always retains a quality of painting. This child writes 'with the eye', observing every line and working with an aesthetic feeling for the beauty of the form - a painterly quality lives in all his or her writing. The other type forms the letters on the paper more mechanically, with a certain compulsion. Even in writing lessons - often given for dubious pedagogical reasons, especially in the case of older persons who believe that they must improve their handwriting - the aim is usually to enable the participants to put their letters on paper with this mechanical kind of compulsion. This is how individual handwriting is developed. (...) Those who write mechanically no longer experience an echo of their writing. Their gaze does not rest upon it with an aesthetic pleasure. They do not bring an artistic element of drawing into their writing.

       Each child ought to be guided towards introducing this artistic element into handwriting. A child's eye should always rest on the piece of paper on which he or she is writing and so receive an impression of all that is being put into the writing. This will avoid writing under sheer inner mechanical compulsion, but will allow the child to experience an echo of his or her writing and the various letters. If we do this, we shall be cultivating a certain love in the child for what surrounds it - a sense of responsibility for its surroundings. Although this remark might sound improbable, it is nevertheless true. A caring attitude for whatever we do in life is a direct consequence of this way of learning to write - a method in which writing is a matter not only of manual dexterity but also for the eyes, for aesthetic seeing and willing.

       We should not underestimate how such familiar things influence the whole of human life. Many persons who, later in life, appear lacking in a sense of responsibility - lacking in loving devotion to the surrounding world - would have been helped if they had been taught writing in the right way.

    法律罅循環

    我投訴
    「只有頭等用簡體,侮辱我」
    平機會說
    「由於不是不同的種族,歧視條例在此並不適用」
    因此
    罵他們XX,或YY,或問候(可能是同一位)袓宗
    這是鄙視,不涉歧視

    鄙視含道德譴責
    歧視則同一套道德已失效,除非你
    也認為我們屬於
    不同的種族

    夢裡記憶

    夜裡半夢半醒時,眼裡看到緩慢旋轉的光暈。
    每次不同的圖形,我想這是按flower of life的結構在旋轉。

    我是如此猜想﹣﹣
    清醒時,身體每個粒子以某一頻率震動,而感知一個「現實世界」;
    睡眠時,卻以不同的頻率震動,進入了「夢」的世界。
    依這夢的頻率震動的肉身,好像電腦hardisk以別種format格式運作、存檔,
    於是,夢裡常有從前的夢的記憶,記起某夢裡曾到過某地,而這地在現實世界裡並不存在。

    畫畫筆記(廿八):口罩

    晚上收工一直咳。
    原來整天塗黑,鉛筆粉塵飄揚,雖不至撲鼻,總有些吸入肺裡。
    翌日戴口罩,戴口罩沒五分鐘,竟有沙士的記憶跑出來,
    那味道那記憶,爬在口鼻和口罩之間。

    翻譯

    每次讀到翻譯出錯,以我三腳貓水平竟也看得出來,
    就直覺覺得那些甚麼學院主任委員名銜,都是狗屁,都是用錢賄賂買回來的。
    編輯也無須幫他把關,就讓他臭名遠播吧。
