为你读英语美文 · 第418期 主播:罗斌 Of course, I've seen her films and always thought she was, well, fabulous -- but, you know, a million million miles from the world I live in. which is here -- Notting Hill-- my favourite bit of London. 我当然看过她的电影,一直认为她很出色,但是离我非常遥远。我住在这里,诺丁山,伦敦我最喜爱的地方 There's the market on weekdays selling every fruit and vegetable known to man... 这里平日有集市,贩卖各种为人熟知的蔬果 The tattoo parlour -- with a guy outside who got drunk and now can't remember why he chose 'I Love Ken'... 醉醺醺的家伙从刺青店走出来,记不清为什么刺了“我爱肯” The radical hair-dressers where everyone comes out looking like the Cookie Monster, whether they want to or not... 前卫的发型师让每个从店里出来的人看上去都像甜饼怪,不管他们喜不喜欢 Then suddenly it's the weekend, and from break of day, hundreds of stalls appear out of nowhere, filling Portobello Road right up to Notting Hill Gate. 然后突然周末来临,从清晨开始,就不知道从哪里涌出无数摊位,挤满了波特贝罗路,一直到诺丁山的大门 And wherever you look thousands of people are buying millions of antiques, some genuine... and some not quite so genuine. 放眼望去都是买古董的人,有些是真品,有些不是。 And what's great is that lots of friends have ended up in this part of London -- that's Tony, for example, architect turned chef, who recently invested all the money he ever earned in a new restaurant... 最棒的是有许多朋友都聚集在伦敦的这一区,比如说托尼,由建筑师转行成为厨师,最近用所有积蓄开了一家新餐厅。 And so, this is where I spend my days and years -- in this small village in the middle of a city -- in a house with a blue door that my wife and I bought together... before she left me for a man who looked exactly like Harrison Ford, and where I lead a strange half-life with a lodger called -- Spike! 这就是我日复一日生活的地方,这个城市里的小地方,住在我的妻子和我一起买的一间蓝色门面的房子,之后她成为了一个长得像哈里森福特的男人离开了我,我的生活也变得不同寻常,和我的房客一起,他叫斯派克。 And so it was just another hopeless Wednesday, as I walked the thousand yards through the market to work, never suspecting that this was the day that was gonna change my life forever. 所以这是另一个毫无希望的周三,我穿过集市走了几百米去上班,没有想到这一天会改变我的生活 This is work, by the way, my little travel bookshop, which, um, well , sells travel books, and to be frank with you, doesn’t always sell many of those. 这是我的工作地点,我的小旅游书店,这里专卖旅游书刊,坦白说,销路不怎么好。 为你读英语美文的听众朋友们,我是罗斌,好久没有跟大家问好了,我刚刚为你读的段落是电影《诺丁山》开头的独白。 《诺丁山》讲述了一个爱情故事,女影星Anna在演绎事业如日中天的时候,在伦敦诺丁山的书店邂逅了书店老板Willam,最终他们两个跨越了地域和阶级,走到了最后。 浪漫,幽默,感人,乌托邦是我对这个电影的印象。从学生时代开始,我就一直喜欢有圆满结局的电影,《诺丁山》正是如此。而越长大越发现,其实现实中的大多数故事都是留有缺憾的,电影结局固然完美,但是影片开头描述的平凡的生活场景,可能才是大多数人生活的主旋律。 罗曼罗兰说,世界上只有一种真正的英雄主义,那就是在认清生活的本质之后依然热爱生活,今天我把这段独白分享给你,希望我们可以继续相信那些不期而遇的美好,总会在下一路转角遇见,继续相信在平淡无奇里,依然会有熠熠生辉的时刻出现,也在这个现实的世界里,慢慢开始构建一个只属于自己的乌托邦。 听众朋友们,今天的节目就到这里,我是罗斌,我们下期再会。 ▎主播介绍 罗斌:毕业于广东海洋大学,现在在深圳工作 制作:罗斌,编辑:永清
