Wheel in the Sky

Winter is here again, oh Lord
Haven’t been home in a year or more
I hope she holds on a little longer

Sent a letter on a long summer day
Made of silver, not of clay
Ooh, I’ve been runnin’ down this dusty road

Ooh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’
I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow
Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’

I’ve been trying to make it home
Got to make it before too long
Ooh, I can’t take this very much longer, no
I’m standing in a sleet of rain
Don’t think I’m ever gonna make it home again
The mornin’ sun is risin’
It’s kissin’ the day

Ooh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’
I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow
Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’
Woahohohoh, ohohoh… My, my, my, my, my…
For tomorrow

Oh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’
Ooh, I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow
Wheel in the sky keeps me yearnin’
Ooh, I don’t know, I don’t know

Oh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’
Ooh, I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow
Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’
Ooh, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’
Don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow
Ooh, the wheel in the sky keeps turnin’
Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’

Ikeda Manabu~ Rebirth

 

為了完成這幅作品,Ikeda Manabu,這位日本畫家每週工作6天,每天10個小時,一共耗費了3年半的光陰。

難以想像在這麼長的時間裡,他要凝視多少難以直視的死亡與破滅,懷著多麽強大的願力與慈悲,才能日復一日地工作,以這樣一幅作品,去超渡與昇華那些恐懼與傷痛。但他做到了。我想那是因為做為一個畫家,他知道自己再如何難以承受這一切,都比不上那些罹難者與其家人本身的恐懼與痛苦。 作品的最後一部份掛上牆面時,Manabu先生終於情緒潰堤。令人動容。那是一個人長期在苦痛中,承載著善念與使命,終於完成了工作,才會有的強大力場。而在那一剎那間,我想我們都目睹了一位菩薩,出現在我們眼前。 向Manabu先生致敬,也與他一起為亡者祈禱。合掌。~ Cain Chang
