Lesson 21 Escape 逃避

I live an isolated life in a small basin between two mountain ridges at the edge of an ocean. Due to the bad soil, the land is barren. However, I have a barn full of animals that supply me with all the food I need. There’s nothing more satisfying than basting pig meat over a barbecue. The weather is pretty good. There is always enough rain to fill my water barrel. But sometimes, a fierce storm will batter the barn all right.

在海边的两座山脊间不大的盆地上,我过着远离尘嚣的生活。由于土质太差,这里可谓是不毛之地。但我得谷仓里注满了动物,让我吃喝不用愁。天下之乐事莫过于野餐时往烤猪肉上抹油了。天气还不错,我的水桶总能装满雨水。但有时,一场狂暴的大雨能把谷仓嘭嘭拍上一整夜。

The rough life I lead has made me look and feel like a barbarian. The heat from the sun has baked my bare skin brown. I haven’t been to the barber for two years. As a result, I think I would be bashful if anyone found me. I don’t have any money but I don’t need it. You can’t buy anything here. You can’t even barter. However, I’m not completely out of touch with civilization. Every few months, I can hear the sound of an ocean barge passing in the distance. I always run to the ocean side to see it. It reminds me that I’m still human.

生活的艰辛让我看起来活像个野蛮人,而我自己的感觉也是如此。炙热的太阳将我裸露的皮肤烤成棕色。我有两年没去理发师那里剪头发了。所以,我想我会羞于见人。我没钱也不需要钱。这里什么也买不到,即便是物物交换都不可能。然而,我并没有完全脱离文明社会。每隔几个月,我都能听到远处海上的驳船经过这里时的声音。我总是跑到海边去看船,它提醒着我原来我还是个人。

You might think that I’m barely surviving but the opposite is true. This is the only place where I can escape the horrible war in the city. In my mind, I can still hear the barrage of gunfire smashing through our wooden barriers. I can still remember spending months, helplessly barricaded in the basement of one of our many, once beautiful, baroque style buildings. My life is more peaceful now. Perhaps after the war, I’ll find my way back home.

你也许会认为我几乎无法生存,但事实恰恰相反。只有在这里,我才能远离城中可怕的战争。我的脑海里依然回荡着枪林弹雨轰然粉碎木质障碍物的声音。我依然记得那几个月躲在一幢曾因其式样美观而风光一时的巴罗克式建筑的地下室时的无助场面。现在我的生活平静多了。也许战争结束后,我会踏上回家的路。

What’s that I hear? It’s the bark of my dog. I’ve got to run. Another barge is passing by.

那是什么声音?是我的狗在叫。我得跑步了,又有一艘驳船过来了。
