「是,她很好的。」

「你係唔係光纖之父?」

「光纖?光纖之父……做乜嘢?」
高錕的記憶像摔破的鏡子,碎片一塊塊掉下、失落。
他患上老人癡呆症,整天忘憂笑嘻嘻,連讓他獲得諾貝爾獎的驚世發明也忘得一乾二淨,
只把記憶預留給最珍貴的人──妻子黃美芸。
問高錕是否很愛妻子,兩鬚斑白的老頭子拍了拍妻子的手臂,靦覥地說:
「是,她很好的。」





病魔奪走他的記憶,也掃走煩憂。
當全世界為高錕患上老人癡呆症嘆息,
他正在美國安享晚年,笑容像加州陽光般溫煦,開懷得像個嬰孩。


~ excerpt from apply daily dd 9 Oct 2009 ~







i don't know how to explain this,
but reading their story gives me goosebumps...
in the sweetest kind of way....





maybe
it's true that
when all else fails
when all else vanishes...



prevails.




i was thinking what would it be like to be professor kao's wife in the current stage of things....

i think it would be like drinking coffee,

bittersweet.



bitter to see my own husband's health deteriorates day by day.... turning against the clock... becoming more and more like a child... worry about who's going to take care of him if i leave before him one day....

sweet.... that i am still in his heart and in his mind.... after all the years... and that there is nothing else that would stand between us anymore....


人生無常
大家都好好珍惜眼前人。
