2006年1月1日 

        

2005年12月22日,小柯一家终于返回阔别三月的家。

           

大半夜到达,所幸有电,还不至于当瞎子。没有煤气,热水暖气都没有,气温才10度,把人冻得够呛。水管有些锈住了,出来的都是黄褐色的脏水,放了一会儿才好。因为是地表水,水温冰凉,刷牙的时候牙被冰得酸痛。洗脸更是下了好大决心才把这冰凉的水泼到脸上。

          

家具都在姨妈的房子里。小柯与大伟两人思忖良久还是决定先把床搬过来睡:虽然气温寒冷,可家,永远是心里最温暖的地方啊。于是当晚盖了三层被子,Kiwi毛茸茸的挤在小柯与大伟脸中间安心入眠。

           

直到圣诞节前,几乎天天都是在搬家的重体力劳动中度过的。没有煤气无法做饭,于是一天去外面吃一顿。Uptown的餐馆小店几乎都恢复营业了,终于再次吃到中餐馆里的海鲜小蒸包,家门口小饭馆里的菠菜煎蛋卷,甚至还奢侈了一次去吃烤鱼脖子。家的味道是这样的熟悉与甜美,唯一美中不足是所有的餐馆都微微涨了价。不过看看各个餐馆酒店商店门口挂着“招人”的大牌子,看看餐馆里忙得团团转的服务生们,涨点价也不足为奇。现在就期待着29号才能通上的煤气,重拾锅铲了。

              

邻居一家四口,妈妈带着两个漂亮的儿子从德国回来,小孩已经重回学校了。知道我们没煤气,妈妈立刻把家里野营用的炉子与罐装煤气借给我们。当医生的爸爸把自己面包车里的后座卸下来变成“卡车”给我们搬家。24日圣诞夜,更邀请我们在他们家享用圣诞大餐。烛光美酒华服,还有邻里间的友情恩情。虽说南方早以热情好客而著称,可这也是头一次彼此拥有这么多的共同话题。每个人都有一段撤离的故事可讲,每个人都因重归故土而无限欣喜,每个人都有对这个城市未来的殷切展望。小柯想起为姨妈义务打扫卫生并帮忙看房子修剪门前树木的印第安老邻居,想起只有点头之交却二话不说就把自己的卡车借给我们搬家的隔壁大叔,想起逃难路上因为同是路易斯安那州车牌而相互鸣笛致意的路人…… 共同的经历,真正的惺惺相惜,灾难面前毫不犹豫伸出的援手,还有对家园的明天仍然模糊不清却十分热烈的希望。所有这一切,这比圣诞树上最明亮的星星还要璀璨美好的人性,就是新奥尔良复活的希望了吧。只要这些人在,这个城市就不会死亡,绝对不会!

                 

25日,圣诞节,远在加州的姨妈与姨夫飞到城里来修整飓风中受到一定损伤的房子。于是从圣诞到新年前夜又是一番辛苦劳动:刷墙,修理地板,打扫卫生,拾掇院子。上过山下过乡的姨夫实在是让小柯惊叹赞叹佩服。姨夫个子不高,人也不壮,带着近视眼镜,看上去本是十分斯文安静的知识分子。可就是这样的姨夫,每天7点准时起床,不吃(因为没有)早饭就开始一天的劳作。第一天姨夫一个人爬树上房顶清理所有的枯枝败叶,等我们饱睡到9点过去帮忙的时候,小房上倒下的巨大树枝已被锯断,诺大的院子几乎旧貌换新颜;这时姨夫已经在张罗着去Home Depot买工具刷天花板了。短短三四天,墙刷了,地板安了,空调进气口修了,树锯了,水塘的污水抽干了,院子里的枯枝败叶清理了,小房被白蚁蛀坏的房梁换了,柱子油漆涂好了,厨房漏水修好了,掉下来的抽屉板粘上了,煤气通了,热水暖气都来了。每个人都累得躺下就睡着了,每个人都为这样的神速进展而惊叹欣喜。

                 

姨夫英文不好,却已经和印第安老邻居成了好朋友。姨妈最爱加州湾区的阳光与浓浓的中国情调,却开始盘算什么时候搬到这里退休养老。新奥尔良这个地方,这个被飓风呼啸过被洪水吞噬过脚步蹒跚呼吸沉重的古老城市,就这样用她不可言喻的魔力又俘虏了两颗心。

            

1230日送走姨妈姨夫,31日帮助表弟沙鸥翔搬家,又是一天忙碌。晚上两个人累得没有力气出去法国区看新年焰火,于是躲在家里看电视剧《青衣》。楼上搬来了新邻居,两个十几岁的小孩活泼可爱。半夜12点,德国邻居的小小孩与楼上的大小孩一同在后院放烟火,小柯打开百叶窗里微笑的看他们被火光映得红红绿绿的笑脸。是啊,新的一年就这样来了……

             

2006年一月一日,小柯与大伟终于把最后一个箱子搬进家。画挂好,书桌上的世界地图贴上,沙发罩罩好,地毯铺上,相片摆好。我打开所有的灯,新年的第一天,我要在自己的家里,明明亮亮的度过。Kiwi今天也很高兴,因为吃到格外多的小猫饼干,不停的在走廊里跑来跑去,肚子里发出咕噜咕噜的呼呼声。晚上全家人出去吃了黎巴嫩烤羊肉过年,大伟去给朋友过生日,我与沙鸥翔则去看了场《傲慢与偏见》算作庆祝。

        

现在,我终于坐下来,终于要完成这一篇历时四个月,跨越了六千七百迈,一万公里,四分之一地球赤道长度的逃难旅程。从827日下午离家,到新年第一天就要完成的最后一个字。这是一段艰苦的旅程,是曾经混乱彷徨的心路,是感激与祝福的时光,是亲情友情爱情的绽放,是一段最值得记忆纪念的人生经历。飓风没有吹垮古老的新奥尔良,洪水也淹不灭人们的希望与祈祷。小柯一家的逃难与回归,是这个世界仍存美好与善良的见证,是众多Katrina故事中普通又特殊的一个。普通是因为这样的故事成百上千,而我正好写到自己这个;特殊是因为读到这个故事的每位朋友都如此真诚而善良,用无数的祝福与援助与我们一同走完了这段人生旅程。所以在这段旅程最后结束的时候,我只想再一次对每个读到这个故事的人说声“谢谢”!谢谢你们的关注,谢谢你们的鼓励,谢谢你们的帮助。愿大家都有一个平安健康幸福的2006年!
