I left my heart in San Francisco

懷念 Tony Bennett - "I Left My Heart in San Francisco"

Ed Sullivan Show - November 22, 1964

The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gay 戀戀巴黎黯然魂傷
The glory that was Rome is of another day 羅馬風華又待明日
I've been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan 我迷失在曼哈頓
I'm going home to my city by the Bay 我踏上回家的路, 回那灣邊的城,
I left my heart in San Francisco 我在 San Francisco 留下了我的心
High on a hill, it calls to me 高高的陡坡向我招呼
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars 搭那纜車在摘星的路上
The morning fog may chill the air, I don't care 晨霧是涼颼颼的朝氣, 又如何?
My love waits there in San Francisco 我所愛的就在 San Francisco 等著我,
Above the blue and windy sea 在那蔚藍有風的海上,
When I come home to you, San Francisco 當我回家到你身邊, San Francisco…
Your golden sun will shine for me 你金色的太陽將為我綻放
When I come home to you, San Francisco 當我回家到你身邊, San Francisco…
Your golden sun will shine for me 你金色的太陽將為我綻放

I was driving to senior home on Thursday, heard from radio of the pass of Tony Bennett, one of his famous songs “I left my heart in San Francisco” came to my mind and this morning click on 梨群所居 read the special news, I smile, smile inside. The golden sun in San Francisco that I experienced on my first trip to SFO in my early 20s, I cannot forget the scene I saw.
This morning on the way home from Saturday morning grocery shopping, Toronto’s bright and warm summer sun shines on my eyes, I breathed in deeply and enjoyed a few minutes of sunbathing. What a beautiful morning.

Thank you Paul

第五十二週 - 天堂的樂章

December 29, 2023

我們都不是古典音樂的行家, 但聽到這首音樂, 我們心中可以體會到音樂的美感, 情不自禁地快樂起來, 想像我們已經進了天堂, 簡單的鋼琴前導, 是上帝的手 攙著我們的手, 慢慢地走, 緩慢但不停步, 慢慢欣賞天堂裏的”白”, 慢慢地叫我們放輕鬆, 忽然長笛響起, 把我們心中的愉悅快樂化成可見的煙縷漂浮昇華, 所謂的羽化登仙, 大概就是如此了, 長笛的聲音在全白的天堂有一種上帝造天地的乾淨未曾墮落的感覺, 鋼琴繼續前導, 交響陪伴襯托, 然後出來一串彈跳, 像輕盈的精靈在前面引路, 彈跳的鋼琴敲擊和如絲般的交響弦樂聯手, 拉高音量, 提我們到了九重天, 長笛又加入鋼琴的輕盈敲鍵, 好像要們啜飲好酒, 尋求醉意, 我們的心, 君如女蘿草妾做菟絲花, 和音樂糾葛, 臻於甘願交心的境地, 曲終的如天女散花般的鋼琴彈出跳躍抖散的音”豆”, 令人恍惚, 令人走神, 令人不願意醒來.

第五十一週 - 保羅與寶鑼

我若能說萬人的方言,並天使的話語,卻沒有愛,我就成了鳴的鑼、響的鈸一般。我若有先知講道之能,也明白各樣的奧祕、各樣的知識,而且有全備的信,叫我能夠移山,卻沒有愛,我就算不得什麼。我若將所有的賙濟窮人,又捨己身叫人焚燒,卻沒有愛,仍然與我無益。
