      时间旅行者的妻子 The Time Traveler's Wife

                  【美】奥黛丽.尼芬格 Audrey Niffenegger                                   

 Introduction


克莱尔:被丢下的感觉真艰难。我等着亨利,不知道他在哪儿,不知道他一切可好。做等待的一方,真艰难。Claire: It feels bad to be left behind. I am waiting for Henry. I don't know where he is, if he is all right. It's tough to be the one who is waiting.

我尽量让自己充实。那样时间会过得快一些。 I try to make myself busy, so that time will go faster.

我独自一人入睡,独自一人醒来。我经常走动。我工作到精疲力竭。我注视着一整个冬天的积雪覆盖的垃圾,随风飞舞。除非你停下来想这件事情,否则一切都依旧单纯。为何缺席总让爱意更浓?I sleep alone and wake up alone. I walk frequently. I exhaust myself working. I watch the garbage, which is covered by the snow for the whole winter, dancing in the wind. Unless you stop and think about it, otherwise everything keeps simple. Why does absence always deepen the love?

很久以前,男人们出海,女人们为之守候,伫立海边,搜寻天际的轻舟。现在,我等着亨利。没有任何预兆,他就这么不情愿地消失了。等待的每分每秒,都仿佛经年累月般漫长。每个微小的时刻,如同玻璃沙漏里的细沙,缓慢而透明,每个微小的时刻,我都能看见,它们无穷无尽,汇聚成漫长的等待。但为何他的离去,我总无法相随?Long time ago, men went to the sea, women stood by the sea, looking for the boat against the sky. Now, I am waiting for Henry. He disappeares so unwillingly without an omen. Every minute and every second I am waiting seems like years. Every tiny moment is slow and transparent, likes silver sands in the sand clock. I can see that  they converge into endless waiting. But why I cannot follow him when he's away?
