As I await the release of Number 11 with abated breath, I start to wonder how much of the past will come and smack me in the face.
The promotion schedule's been lined up, some really exciting plans are in the works, Wonderful Music have warned me of tough days ahead.
Tough. Days.
Ha.

Will it perhaps require me standing in minus four degrees in a singlet with pelting ice? Or living in a glass box with cameras switched on 24/7 ala Truman show? Explain to the world the monstrosity of a much publicised event? Or would it require the most painful fear of facing your acne in the mirror?

I recollect my past with some amusement. And a little twitch. But most of all I feel so freaking grateful.

What a difference they have made. These testy events, these hard to swallow pills. In the words of Alanis Morisette (yea not a good choice, the album marked the end of her career),

"Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence."



Aha, but I have another list to add:


Thank YOU.
And him.
And her.
And good cleanser.
And courage,.... there's also airconditioning, story books, love, N, katy perry, posturpedic beds, Jonah's questions, fertiliser, Barney Stinson, Kenn C, kind words, Miso, daily affirmation with Jessica, , parents, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Christian the Lion, Fiona Apple, fire trucks, Aomori Gymnasts blah blah blah blah ...


See it doesn't just end at silence. There are so many many many other things.

11

我呼吸緩慢地等待著我的第11張專輯發行,開始忍不住嚮往過去的經歷是否會再度出現,再度考驗。

新專輯的宣傳行程已經確定,一些著實讓人興奮地計劃也正在籌備中。美妙音樂已經提醒過我,即將到來的宣傳期可能會是磨人的日子。
磨人。日子。
哈。

是否要頂著風暴,穿件背心,站在零下四度的冰川上?還是在玻璃屋裡,對著鏡頭,上演一場24小時不間斷的楚門秀?或者向外界解釋,一場被誇大宣傳手法的用意?還是要承受最恐懼的,面對鏡子裡臉上的痘痘?


我帶著幾分娛樂的心態回想我的過去。也帶了一點點抽搐。最多的是,很多分感激。

因為這些事而改變的觀感。這些充滿考驗的經歷,這些難以下嚥的良藥。就如歌手阿蘭尼斯.莫麗賽特(Alanis Morisette)(當然這個人選不是太好,那張專輯意味著她歌唱生涯的結束)的歌詞所說:

「感謝脆弱,
感謝因果,
感謝感謝沉默」


啊哈,但我還有更多要感謝的:

謝謝你們。
還有他。
還有她。
還有好的卸妝油。
還有勇氣,.....當然還有空調,故事書,愛情,N,凱蒂•佩裡,Posturpedic牌的床,侄子約拿的問題,肥料,Barney Stinson,Kenn C, 安慰的話語,那碗味增湯,那位味增TAN,視頻daily affirmation with Jessica(那個可愛的小女孩),我的父母,Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros,獅子Christian【被拍成電影《乖獅克里斯蒂安》(Christian the Lion)】,歌手Fiona Apple,救火車,日本青森體操運動員等等等等….

看吧,並沒有在感謝沉默中結束。還有這麼這麼這麼多的別的事情。
