①英語原稿

 

The train from ‘Frisco was very late.

It should have arrived at Hugson’s Siding at midnight,

but it was already five o’clock and the gray dawn was breaking in the east

when the little train slowly rumbled up to the open shed that served for the station-house.

As it came to a stop the conductor called out in a loud voice:

“Hugson’s Siding!”

⑤語彙解説

 

1. Rumble (ˈrʌmbəl)

“They dwelt in a cold spot and a dangerous one; for a mountain towered above their heads, so steep, that the stones would often rumble down its sides and startle them at midnight.”

 

“Through the rumble of omnibuses, and the clatter of street-cabs, he could hear the droning voice devouring each minute that was left to him.”

 

“Suddenly he heard a small voice above the rattle and rumble of the wheels and the creaking of the harness.”

 

 

2. Shed (shĕd)

– Noun :  A small structure, either freestanding or attached to a larger structure, serving for storage or shelter

 

“My mother, who was small and had red, sad-looking eyes, would come into the house from a little shed at the back.”

 

“Presently, against one of those banks, I saw a sort of shed, thatched with the same wine-coloured grass that grew everywhere.”

 

“It stood in a small side room which looked out across a narrow grass plot toward the shed, where there was a disabled boat lying keel upward.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

⑥休憩時間

 

 

For the past 33 years I’ve looked in the mirror and asked myself.

If today were the last day of my life would I wanna do what I am about to do today.

and whenever the answers has been  “no” for too many days in a row

I know I need to change something.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life, because almost everything, all external expectations, all pride, all fear of  embarrassment and failure.

These things just fall away in the face of dead, leaving only what is truly important.

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.

You are already naked there is no reason not to follow your heart.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer.

I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas.

I didn’t even know what a pancreas was.

The doctors told me this was almost certainly type of cancer that is incurable.

And that I should expecte to live no longer than 3 to 6 months.

My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order which is doctor’s code for prepare to die.

It means to try to tell your kids everything. You thought you’d have the next 10 years to tell in just a few months.

It means to make sure everything is bottomed up. So that it will be as easy as possible for your family.

It means to say your good byes.
