Chapter 1 

15

The children were cooed over, and hot tea and soda bread were offered. Deciding she’d left her charges in good hands, Erin walked outside again.

孩子们在低声嘀咕的时候,旅店提供了热茶和苏打面包。等一切都安顿好后,艾琳决定离开并且向外走去。

The day was cool and clear.

今天的天气凉爽,天空晴朗。

The early clouds had long since been blown away by the westerly wind so that the light, as it often was in Ireland, was luminescent and pearly. Erin took a moment to study the village that had so fascinated her cousin. It was ordinary, slow,quiet,filled with workingmen and women and often smelling of fish. From almost any point in town you could see the small harbor where the boats came in with their daily catch. The store-front were kept neat. That was a matter of pride. The doors were left unlocked. That was a matter of custom. There was no one there who didn’t know her, no one she didn’t know.

早前的乌云已经被西风吹走很久了,那道经常照射在爱尔兰的阳光,好像散发着珍珠般的光彩。

艾琳停留了一会,想要探索一下这个村庄为什么会让她的表姐如此着迷。

它看起来很普通,慢慢的,安静的,到处都是工人和劳作的女人,还有经常能闻到的鱼腥味。

几乎从小村庄(小镇)的每一个地方都能看到小港口,那里每天都有出海捕鱼的船只归来。

商店的门前一直保持得整洁。这是一件让人感到骄傲的事情。

大门一般都没有上锁。这是当地人的习惯。

在这里没有人不认识她,也没有她不认识的人。

Whatever secrets there were never secrets for long, but were passed out like small treasures to be savored and sighed over.

在这里没有永远的秘密,但是能一直保密的事情就像小财富可以让人回味无穷,感叹不已。

God, she wanted to see something else before her life was done. She wanted to see big cities where life whirled by, fast and hot and anonymous.

上帝啊,她还想在生命结束前多看一些别的事情。她想看看那些大都市里的生活是什么样的、快节奏的、狂热的,还是默默无闻的。

She wanted to walk down a street where no one knew who she was and no one cared. Just once, just once in her life, she wanted to do something wild and impulsive that wouldn’t echo back to her on the tongues of family and neighbors. Just once.

她想走在大街上,没有人知道她是谁,没有人关注她。哪怕只有一次,哪怕她一生中只有一次,她想做一些疯狂的事,冲动的,无视家人反对和邻居那些闲言闲语勇敢去做的事。哪怕只有一次也好。
