「舉一反三」包袱

「舉一反三」包袱

孩子上中文學校多年,我也擔任鋼琴老師多年,認識了這麼多的學生及家長,發現有為數不少的父母都有一個「舉一反三」的慣性反應。請注意我說的是:「反應」。 舉個例子來說,如果有某位家長稱讚另一位家長的孩子:「你的兒子好乖喔!〈舉一〉」這位被稱讚的家長也許會有這種反應:

「台灣之美」水彩畫展

為讓僑胞在海外有機會欣賞台灣各地美景及風土民情,僑務委員會特別規劃「2014年台灣之美水彩畫巡迴畫展」,邀請台灣知名水彩藝術大師陳陽春先生提供精選40幅畫作,在美國10處華僑文教服務中心巡迴展出。畫作內容包括城市生活、鄉村風情、山海美景、民俗信仰等,呈現台灣豐富多樣的文化內涵。 陳陽春先生,雲林縣水林鄉人,自幼即有「書法神童」美譽,初中研習水彩畫理論與習作,後並融合水墨畫的「留白」與「用黑」技法於畫作之中,讓水彩畫產生獨特的空靈美感

Tai chi: A gentle way to fight stress

Tai chi: A gentle way to fight stress

[Source: Mayo Clinic] If you're looking for a way to reduce stress, consider tai chi (TIE-CHEE). Originally developed for self-defense, tai chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that's now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements. What is tai…
鋼琴「葉克膜」

鋼琴「葉克膜」

幾年前從「向殘酷的仁慈說再見」一書中, 第一次接觸到「葉克膜」這個名詞。根據「維基百科」的解釋:「體外膜氧合 (Extra-Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation,縮寫ECMO,音譯俗稱『葉克膜』) 是一種醫療急救設備,用以暫時協助大部份醫療方法皆無效的重度心肺衰竭患者進行體外的呼吸與循環。它能暫代患者的心肺功能,為醫療人員爭取救治時間。」 書中提到使用「葉克膜」的費用極高,而醫院濫用「葉克膜」的案例也不少。顧名思義,這本書是在提醒大家重視「善終」的意義。病人若該走了就該放手,不擇手段用科技來維持一口氣,讓病人求生不得求死不能,無論對病人或是家屬,都是一種折磨。 但「葉克膜」為什麼會跟鋼琴扯上關係呢?且聽我道來

5 x 3 與 3 x 5

「一枝鉛筆五元,如果買三枝,請問一共多少錢?」這是一題學習乘法時幾乎每個人都曾碰到過的數學題,無論中英文,反正題目讀完乘一乘答案就出來了,不是嗎?沒想到我的朋友陪孩子寫這麼簡單的數學功課,還寫出了問題。 一天她打電話給我,問我說:「你記不記得我們小學的時候,老師有特別交代過,如果一枝筆五元,這個 『五』 就應該放在前面,所以當要寫出算式的時候,得寫 5 x 3,如果寫 3 x 5 就是錯的?」我說:「嗯…好像有這麼一回事。

別人的小孩有前途

別人的小孩有前途

兒子升上十一年級時,中文學校的同班同學全都上中文課超過十年了,正常美國學校的功課愈來愈忙不說,學生也都沒有興趣再繼續上中文課,於是紛紛成為學校的助教,星期日有空就來幫忙做點事,同時高中也要求學生拿一些校外義工的時數,算是一舉兩得吧。 一天碰到一位老師聊了聊,她跟我說:
