兩小時讀書計劃

(本文原刊於明報專欄《2047夜》。)

前陣子,心情有點鬱悶。要玩要做要寫的事太多,承諾幫忙的事又愈滾愈大,每一樣都有意義,每一樣都認真做,陷於冇時停的境地。忙碌,源於自己之選擇,不能抱怨,每天只能解決眼前的怪獸,時間分配失控。

最大鬱結,乃眼前堆積如山的書海。一向習慣把要讀的書堆在桌面,怎料兩三個月下來,幾乎沒時間翻一翻;同時又感到   output  多,input 少,腦力搾乾搾盡,養份不夠,心思枯竭。

於是,把心一橫,給自己訂下生活新守則:每天專心讀書最少兩小時。

專心,即心無旁鶩,主要是不玩手機不覆留言不瀏覽社交媒體;所謂「讀書」,也可以是讀雜誌報章之大塊文章,聽一場好講座也計算;每天兩小時乃以一個月平均計,不須連續兩小時,但要認真計時。

強逼自己讀書很可憐嗎?不,其實是逼自己擠出時間,每天留兩小時吸取養份。時間確實可以擠出來,這點大家都明白。認真實行以後,減少了無意識碌電話的反射動作,最少地鐵上的交通時間、晩飯後將睡未睡的碎屑時間、平日在社交媒體上有一句沒一句的答話片絮,全部用作讀書;再加周末騰空半天,謝絕一切閑事,一周共計十四小時讀書時間,大致可以辦到,生命力迅速回升。

讀書守則實行半年,心情舒泰踏實,讀了不少書,書桌上那座山,卻有增無減。

博群書節2019,十四場講座,詳細時間表見bit.ly/2SRTxeW其中一場,由一位建築系教授談閱讀之空間設計,詳情:
題目: The Space Where We Read: Designing with Books
講者: Peter Ferretto
日期:
2019 3 25 日(星期一)
時間:
下午 1 時至 2 30
地點:
大學圖書館進學園
語言:
英語

講者簡介:
Peter W. Ferretto is an Associate Professor and Director of the Masters of Architecture Programme at the School of Architecture at CUHK.  His research focuses on understanding urban/ rural territories through design prototypes.  Over the last decade, his research has given rise to a series of publications, journal articles, book chapters, conference presentations, symposia, installations and international exhibitions.   In tandem with his academic research over the last 20 years, Prof. Ferretto gained considerable professional experience working for several International practices, including Herzog & de Meuron Architects (Basel) before establishing in 2009 his own firm, PWFERRETTO (Seoul).

活動內容:
Books and reading are intrinsically connected to space.  Reading is both a cognitive and physical act, the place where you read alters the content of what you read.  Reading outdoors is different from reading on the MTR.   In this talk, Prof. Ferretto will present how we experience reading spaces, how to design spaces that might enhance the “reading” experience and conclude by comparing how an author and architect describe space.
