時差記事/淡水紅龍-一名計程車司機的故事

在長達34小時的飛行後,我終於踏上了嶄新的台灣桃園國際機場,我和妻子跳進了計程車。司機不會說半句英文,我試著對他說一些基本的中文,他一點都聽不懂!三十秒鐘後,我跟Melissa發現他其實根本就是瞎了,年紀至少也有82歲以上之類的!我們給他看我們房東寫給我們的中文地址,但這可愛的傢伙看不太到,他把手機拿到離自己眼睛三公分的距離,自言自語了一番。他幫我們把我的攝影器材跟衣服放進他的後車箱。我敢說他喜歡釣魚,他的後車箱裝滿了釣魚的器具。

我們前往公寓,台北瀰漫著霧與水,整條街看起來像瀰漫著紅色霓虹燈的巨大溜冰場。我看到很多建築跟寺廟,到處都充斥著龍的圖騰。我再次感覺自己走入"銀翼殺手"與"愛情,不用翻譯"的場景。

我們的計程車司機熱愛速度,他不在乎他沒有像獵鷹般銳利的目光,將車子飆到時速100公里,我的老天!他不管紅綠燈,一邊飆車一邊開始說一長串中文,我們一句都聽不懂!這傢伙笑起來像條龍!

終於到達了我們的公寓,我們就像按照普契尼編排的舞劇那樣翩翩歇息下來。然後,我驚訝的發現他那美麗的淡水紅龍尾巴。

他慢慢的走向我,用友善的手勢對我說,歡迎來到台北,Jin Lao,他把我的行李放在路上,我們握手道別!我很高興我終於回到台北!

The lights got off, a surround silence begins to take form of nowness, and in that moment a dialogue began to emerge:

“So what happened then? Does the echoes started to feel with the different textures of the unknown? Is it how you started to see Dragons in the air, could you feel to understand the neon that lives in Taipei Kissyo (台北吉祥) by Suda Issei.

All the fallen gods that presents the deepness of the drain and grain immortality portrayed by Yao Jui- Chung, do you started to live inside of these rare atmosphere?”.

“There was a way of storytelling that you learn in your western conception, but then you arrived to Far East and you started to fell different, to hear different and live in a constant of utopian dystopia. How do you describe the juices of the flowered sensuality that lives in an island called Formosa?, is that the way you understand things now?” he continued “please don’t rush the hours into long speeches, here your words became light and minimalism, everything reaches another landscape when you became a person that start to understand the language of the Tigers”.

“How can I understand the speaking of the vibes Laoshi of Air” the external voice asked, and then the inner voice responded “What a second and start to reach the voices of water in the shadows of the Black and White, perhaps you may find the guidnees in Beyond humanity of Yao Jui- Chung, perhaps, this is only a game where dust became rocks and rocks became flames.”

Marbles of generations lives in the hard soil of Taipei, Mister Turrell lives in the inner blood of the harsh Neon that unveils the Betel Nut stores. Chew, feel, smell and feel the deep humidity that can move the living spirit of Kipling. Unveil your inner dialogue, feel free, distance yourself from the western frames and maybe we, you, he, she can start understanding the steps of sensuality.
