#190 Chance Traveller

村上春樹的《偶然的旅人》/ Haruki Murakami's Chance Traveller:
「契機比什麼都重要。我那時候忽然這樣想。偶然的一致,說起來也許是到處普遍存在的現象。也就是說那一類的事情在我們周圍,是日常經常發生的。但我們大半沒有留意到,就那樣忽略過去了。就像大白天射向天空的煙火一樣,只聽到微弱的聲音,就算抬頭望向天空也什麼都看不見。可是如果我們有強烈追求的心願的話,那可能就會在我們的視野裡,以一個訊息浮現出來。變得可以鮮明清晰地讀出那圖形和意思來。」 
(Chances are more important than anything. I thought of it out of the blue.) "Maybe chance is a pretty common thing after all. Those kinds of coincidences are happening all around us, all the time, but most of them don’t catch our attention and we just let them go by. It’s like fireworks in the daytime. You might hear a faint sound, but even if you look up at the sky you can’t see a thing. But if we’re really hoping something may come true, it may become visible, like a message rising to the surface. Then we’re able to make it out clearly, decipher what it means."
