Chapter ONE

Part 4

Somewhere around this time, I also received information confirming news stories about a daughter, Sharon Pettijohn, born Sharon Lee Blythe in Kansas City in 1941, to a woman my father later divorced.

在这次之后,某些地方,我也接收到一些已证实的新故事。比如说父亲的另外一个女儿,1941年出生在KansasSharon的人,她是后来跟我的父亲离了婚的女人生的。(觉得可以用中文组织的更好,但想不出来

 She sent copies of her birth certificate, her parents’ marriage license, a

photo of my father, and a letter to her mother from my father asking about “our baby to Betsey Wright, my former chief of staff in the governors office.

她给我政府机构的前任秘书长发了些出生证明的复印件,她父母的结婚证,我父亲的一张照片,以及一份信,那是我父亲写给她母亲的询问关于他们的宝贝女儿近况的信。

I’m sorry to say that, for whatever reason, Ive never met her.

我很抱歉的说,因为这样那样的原因,我从来都没跟她碰过面。

 

This news breaking in 1993 came as a shock to Mother, who by then had been battling cancer for some time, but she took it all in stride.

1993年发生的事情对我的母亲来说是一个巨大的打击,尤其是当时她在跟癌症斗争了很长的一段时间。但是她都从容地面对了这一切。

She said young people did a lot of things during the Depression and the war that people in another time might disapprove of.

她说年轻人在抑郁和期和战争期做的许多事情,在其他时期就不会被人们赞同,是可以理解的。

What mattered was that my father was the love of her life and she had no doubt of his love for her.

而且真正重要的是我的父亲是他生命中的至爱,她从来都不怀疑他对她的爱。

Whatever the facts, that’s all she needed to know as her own life moved toward its end.

无论事实如何,她所需要知道的是她陪他走到了生命的尽头。

 

 As for me, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it all, but given the life Ive led, I could hardly be surprised that my father was more complicated than the idealized pictures I had lived with for nearly half a century.

对我来说,我不是很确定这些东西意味了什么,但它确实给我已经确定方向的人生带来了些什么,我几乎不是非常的惊讶,我的父亲远比陪伴了我半个世界的清晰照片上的表象的要复杂的多。(觉得可以用中文组织的更好,但想不出来
