伦敦发 / The London Hair

2017

头发,玻璃瓶 / hair, glass bottle

在我刚到伦敦的这三个月,我问自己在这里得到了什么?答案似乎显而易见,但是却又很难去解释。三个月的经历;课程学习到的知识;新的朋友和同学;异国的风景;甚至是一些好的或者是不好的记忆,来自于另一端的家乡,由于我不在那里,就像是蝴蝶效应。我也不确定,如果这段时间我在其他的城市而不是伦敦,我所得到的是否会不同。

​一天我在镜子前理发,当我看到掉落的头发的时候,我意识到我找到了答案。这些头发就是伦敦给予我的全部,它们证明了我的成长,我身体的改变,甚至我的思想,我的记忆。这一根头发也许是因为我在伦敦吃的第一顿炸鱼薯条而成长;这一根头发也许是因为我第一次见到大本钟;这一根是因为伦敦的雨落在了我的头上;这一根是因为我想念家人和朋友。每一根头发都有属于他的故事,证明我生活在伦敦。

 

I asked myself what I got during my first three months in London. The answer of this question is obvious, but it is also very difficult to explain clearly. Maybe the answer is the experience about living in London, the knowledge I learned from this presessional course, the new friends and classmates I met in here, the good view of this city I enjoyed, the nice and not so good memory in my mind, even something happened in my hometown due to I was in UK. I was also not sure that whether I would be different if I lived in other cities instead of London during this period of time. I wanted to find the unique gift which was given by this city.

 

One day, I stood in front of the mirror and cut my hair by myself. I suddenly found the answer when I saw the hair falling from my head. The hair was the gift London given to me. Hair is the sign of my growth. One hair may be because of the first meal that fish and chips in London, one hair may be because of I heard the bells of the Big Ben firstly, one hair may be because of the rain fell on my head and one hair may be because of I missed my families and friends. Each one hair has its story and proves I have lived in London.
