I’ve always been intrigued by the subject of “time”. Time is invisible, yet so crucial in life. Recently, a book about time struck me and kept me thinking about the meaning of our existence- “The Timekeeper” by Mitch Albom.

Time is something people value differently. Sometimes we see time as the essence of life, constantly wishing we had more, to do more, to fulfill more, to live more. Other times we dread the passing of time, wishing we could fast forward our days, to give anything for our problems to end now.

With the discovery of how to record time, we start to countdown to every significant moment in life. On the other hand, we remember time, by freezing moments in our minds, through art, photography, songs, music, books and film.

In fact, everything we do is a reflection of time passed and anticipation of what is to come.

Sometimes, I’d like to believe that we have trapped ourselves to time itself. A love-hate relationship.

Because of time, everything has a limit. Every person becomes precious. Every moment earns its value, and life earns its purpose.

But with time, we also learn the pain of losing someone, we begin to hold on to things that we treasure, because we realize that nothing can last forever, except change itself. So, we are enlightened, so we regret, so we hope flr better days.

For me, aside from visual expression through camera lens and pencil sketches, the fundamental of expression for me, is sound and music, as well as the power of the lyric.

I write, so I remind myself of the times we’ve cried in pain, so as not to hurt again.

The antagonizing moments which I used to scream and pray would pass quickly,

would be the same moments I eventually miss after the pain has gone away.

 

I sing, to remember these scars,

To celebrate these memories.

 

“時間”的課題總是讓我好奇。“時間”存在於無形,卻是生命的一大要素。最近看了米奇·艾爾邦的著作《時光守護者》,促使我思考時間對於人們存在這世界上的意義。

時間,對每一個人的價值與意義都不太一樣。有時,人們視之為生命的本質,總覺得韶光易逝、年華易老,經常渴望擁有更多時間來成就更多的事物。也有的時候,人們會恨不得光陰似箭、加快速度跳躍到下一個階段,尤其在困苦的時候。

時間計算的發明,賦予了生活中每一個重要階段象徵性的意義,人們開始能夠精準的紀錄事物的發生,學著倒數迎接特別時刻的來臨。當然隨著時間的不斷流逝,人們也藉由回憶、圖畫、攝影、音樂、歌曲、書籍、錄影等試著留住每一個步入歷史的瞬間。事實上,我們做的每一件事情,都在記錄過去,預計未來。

有時候,我覺得是我們自己把自己困在時間裡,愛恨交錯。

因為有了時間,每一個人、事、物都是有限的。每一個人都變得珍貴。每一個瞬間都擁有其價值。每一段人生都因此而累積其特殊意義。

但因為有了時間,我們也開始懂得失去的傷痛。因為了解到除了“變化”是永不間斷的,世上根本沒有所謂的“永恆”。所有對於自己寶貴的人、事、物,都變得難以割捨。

因此,我們得到開解。

因此,我們留下遺憾。

也因此,我們學會期盼更好的明天。

音樂,是我紀錄時間的本能方式。再由歌詞予以歌曲更生動的刻畫。

寫歌,是為了提醒自己曾經的美好、曾經的痛。讓自己學會面對,避免再受傷。

好了傷疤,忘了痛。曾經的痛不欲生、瘋狂吶喊、暗自祈禱,有時候竟然成為傷痛離去後我會想念的過程。

唱自己寫的歌

紀念每一個傷疤

歌誦每一段回憶

    真是個好文章! 要好好把握時間 操之在己!
    自己就是時間的守護者!要好好守護它!不讓時間流失

  2. tiantian says:

    全是大实话,感悟人生的音乐家才更懂得如何做音乐。

  3. 小涵 says:

    看來你讀了不少書的樣子,文筆變得很不同!等我有空會讀讀這本書。

  4. 曦雯 says:

    日记,是我记录时间的本能方式。 🙂

    正因为有音乐、摄影、书籍、录影等这么多的记录方式,我们的世界才这么丰富多彩。 而时间带给我们的伤痛,让我们学会不浪费太多时间在没意义的事情上,也学会要好好的珍惜每一个现在。

  5. chene says:

    喜欢看你写这样的文章 很深刻
    对这本书蛮感兴趣的 不过似乎大陆没有……
    我记得有首歌叫 管理时间的人~应该是差不多的意思吧
    加油!

    人的一生時間彷如一條直線,隨機散落滿地。有的錯中交集相衝磨損,在彼此身上留下烙印。有些垂直相吸改變方向… 沒有一條線可以永久不動。所有的相遇都會留下跟別人碰撞後的痕跡。而這些深淺不一的痕跡便是我們珍惜或怨恨的片刻。

  7. Wacky Cashew says:

    Such a beautiful and insightful sharing! ^^ Keep recording these moments in life to treasure every memory of pain and joy! =)

  8. clara says:

    一首歌一个情景,一种情怀,随着时间流逝,那一些再想起来,只剩美好的回忆了。

  9. Wenxin says:

    Wow. That was really deep, and inspiring at the same time.
    This particular sentence was the one I could relate to the most, “But with time, we also learn the pain of losing someone, we begin to hold on to things that we treasure, because we realize that nothing can last forever, except change itself.”
    Continue writing down these moments, JJ, and thank you, for sharing them with us, and letting your story become our story, for letting your songs define moments in our lives.
    加油!:) <3

  10. Radar says:

    JJ,我覺得你能用音樂記錄你的快樂和悲傷,真的很好,這是很棒的記錄方式,你的很多歌曲反覆聽了多次,仍是感動依舊,希望你繼續用音樂記錄你人生中的黃金時刻…

  11. 林小志Ziv says:

    JJ,真心觉得这篇文章你写的太棒了!让人印象深刻~时间这东西,只可意会,难以言传啊~哈哈哈

  12. 米梦梦 says:

    谁说不是呢,除了记录时间,每个人都在用不同的方式纪念着自己的经历,谢谢你,用音乐为我们的各种纪念赋予了更多美妙的意义。

  13. grace says:

    Time is said to be the fairest of all, as we all have the same amount of time everyday regardless of who we are and what we do. It’s what we do with our time, what happens to us during that time and the time that we take to reflect on all those that then somehow defines who we are eventually.. Hence the varying results despite having the exactly same amount of time in every single person’s day.

  14. grace says:

    Reminds me of 24.

  15. HHK says:

    That was so inspiring, just like your music. You sing to remember the scars and celebrate the memories, while I listen to your music to relieve my soul from reality. You music allows me to be freed from the constraints of reality, and it is my encouragement which allows to keep on going.
    我爱你,加油 🙂

  16. 罗琳 says:

    好喜欢这篇文章啊!特别是那几段英文,中文是自己翻的的吗?翻的也好棒啊。。。我觉得如果你不是singer就是writer或者是painter…哈哈。。特别庆幸自己听到你的音乐,了解到你,认识到你的精神…记得你在《记得》上说过你希望是一个光明的好榜样,我觉得你真的做到了!你真的很棒,我会向你学习的。谢谢你,带给我的精神和感动!thank you!加油!PS:好期待小十哦!

    When I first read this post 2 years ago, I didn’t really get it. Now as I reread it again and again to write my own interpretation of time after watching Interstellar, only now I realize how much have I been taking time (and a lot of other things in my life) for granted.

  18. Grace says:

    每一次回来看这个文章都会有新的领悟。
    我仍然不够珍惜我生命里的人事物。
    仍然很奢侈的浪费我宝贵的时间。
    也只因为我仍然不敢面对我生命真正的意义。
    这种挣扎其实应该产生一些作品出来的。
    好可惜。
