Sarah came running in."Look what I found." Over the top of the paper I was reading came a crispy, crumbling long object that caused me to jump. It was a snake skin that had been shed by one of our many garden snakes.
   "Isn't it beautiful?" said my wide-eyed seven-year-old.
   萨拉跑进来。"看,我发现了什么。"我正在看报,一条卷长的有点支离破碎的东西出现在报纸上,把我吓得跳了起来。那是一条蛇的蜕皮,我们的花园里有很多蛇。
   "它难道不漂亮吗?"我那7岁的小女儿眨着她的大眼睛问道。
   I stared at the organic wrapper and thought to myself that it really wasn' t that beautiful, but I have learned never to appear nonchalant or jaded with children. Everything they see for the first time is elementary to their sense of beauty and creativity; they see only merit and excellence in the world until educated otherwise.
  "Why does it do this?" Sarah asked.
   Robert, ever the innocent comedian, said:"We have a naked snake in our garden!"
   我看着那条蛇皮,自忖它实在算不上漂亮,但我明白决不能对孩子冷淡抑或感到厌烦。孩子们初次见到的东西对于他们是形成美感以及创造力的基础。在接受相关教育之前,他们应当只会看到世上美好的事物。
   萨拉问:"蛇为什么要蜕皮?"
   曾经做过天真喜剧演员的罗伯特说:"我们花园里有一条光着身子的蛇。"
   I also try to customize every opportunity to teach my children that there is almost always something beyond the obvious; that there is something else going on besides what they see in front of them."Snakes shed their skin because they need to renew themselves," I explained. As is so often the case in my family, the original subject leads to another and another, until we are discussing something quite different.
   我也利用一切机会教给孩子们知道任何事物不单有其表像,更有其深层原因的含义。 我解释说:"蛇为了获得新生,所以要蜕皮。"正如我家常常出现的情况,最初的话题会引出其它一个又一个新问题,直到我们谈论的内容与最初的毫不沾边为止。
   "Why do they need to renew themselves?" Sarah asked.
   Robert quipped:" 'Cos they don't like who they are and they want to be someone else."
   Sarah and I politely ignored her brother. I suddenly remembered an article on this page many years ago where the writer was expressing her concept of renewal. She used layers of paper over a wall to describe how we hide our original selves, and said that by peeling away those layers one by one, we see the underlying original beneath.
   萨拉问:"蛇为什么要获得新生?"
   罗伯特诙谐地说:"因为它们不喜欢自己的样子,想要变成另外的样子。"
   萨拉和我没再理会她哥哥。我忽然记起许多年前报上曾有一篇文章,作者表述了她对新生的看法:她用糊在墙壁上的一层层的壁纸来形容我们是如何将真实的自我隐藏起来的,并且说一层一层地剥去那些壁纸,我们便会发现藏在下面的纯真。
