夏日偶见

超市买菜途中,看到一对天真无邪的小朋友,应是俩小兄妹。都瞪着大眼睛,小胖手攥着冰淇淋,认真啃着。阳光下,一对少男少女骑着自行车,青春活力四射,说笑着风一样飘过。顿时感觉很美好。

程序正义:如何公平地分蛋糕

“…一群人分蛋糕,怎样才能保证公平?撇开技术细节,显而易见的方法是,其他人先拿,分蛋糕的人最后拿。…”

《正义论》约翰.罗尔斯

“The intuitive idea is to design the social system so that the outcome is just whatever it happens to be, at least so long as it is within a certain range. The notion of pure procedural justice is best understood by a comparison with perfect and imperfect procedural justice. To illustrate the former, consider the simplest case of fair division. A number of men are to divide a cake: assuming that the fair division is an equal one, which procedure, if any, will give this outcome? Technicalities aside, the obvious solution is to have one man divide the cake and get the last piece, the others being allowed their pick before him. He will divide the cake equally, since in this way he assures for himself the largest share possible. This example illustrates the two characteristic features of perfect procedural justice. First, there is an independent criterion for what is a fair division, a criterion defined separately from and prior to the procedure which is to be followed. And second, it is possible to devise a procedure that is sure to give the desired outcome. Of course, certain assumptions are made here, such as that the man selected can divide the cake equally, wants as large a piece as he can get, and so on. But we can ignore these details. The essential thing is that there is an independent standard for deciding which outcome is just and a procedure guaranteed to lead to it. Pretty clearly, perfect procedural justice is rare, if not impossible, in cases of much practical interest.”

A Theory of Justice, John Rawls

无谓的仇恨

“你99.99%的苦难,与一些10万+雄文让你仇恨的对象,没有任何关系。

无谓的仇恨,会加深你的苦难。”

深夜食堂

东京新宿小巷中的深夜食堂,晚上12点开始营业,早上7点结束。

食堂小门一次次拉开,客人进来,坐下,点一份食物,老板应一声“好嘞”。为食客打理出的饭食,普通但精致。客人们带了的是一段段故事,或有趣或忧伤,平凡而温情。剧情在食堂和外面的世界之间切换,最后总还是回到食堂的一方小小空间。他们的喜怒哀乐,悲欢离合,在生活中烹煮,如同剧中老板常做的猪肉汤火锅,简单却令人回味。

老板平静地看着故事上演,有时也参与其中,可能是一次对客人的鼓励,也可能是一次襄助。老板脸上的伤疤可见,心里可能有的伤痕却从不示人。之所以平静,微笑之所以淡而浅,或许是已经历太多,知道现在正上演的故事,很快就会成为往事,飘散如烟。

—“所谓的安宁,就是平淡无奇。”
—“同时平淡无奇也是无可替代的吧。”

剧中三个警察的一次对话,应是该剧想表达的主题吧。

不用太深刻,如同清风拂过水面,能让你感到美好,就是好作品。

看了两季的日剧《深夜食堂》,有感。

花好月圆

栀子花,素雅,清香袭人,承包和交付了整个小区的花香。

月亮从阴云缺口钻出,喜悦而羞涩,为自己加了一圈淡彩的光晕。又如睁大的眼睛,好奇地看这花开若素。

静谧初夏夜,花好月圆。

出口

出口之外,等待你的是陌生和惶恐,是期盼和喜悦,或是平淡和宁静。
看到出口,你知道时光在流逝,知道自己还在路上。
