Happy to meet you, 

Denisse!

 

識到Denisse,真係緣份,她是厄瓜多爾人,來澳洲讀書,主修海洋生態,正在塔斯曼尼亞實習,她在Couchsurfing問有無人想一齊行山(Mount Wellington),我舉手話去,然後約時間,等巴士,巴士又唔嚟,最終我當時的CS Host Kelvin捱義氣,車埋我地上山,先成功到達起點……

 

Denisse好強壯,她很喜歡運動,體能上佳,卻不自負,不以自己的優點去取笑/欺負他人,反而很體諒別人,好好人。我行山好慢,佢肯行慢啲遷就我,說行慢山也是行山的一種方法,行山唔係次次都要跑,身在山中已然安樂。不過Denisse成日都温馨鼓勵我「試下行快啲」,我行快咗,佢鼓勵;我無氣行慢咗,佢無黑臉,而是放慢速度,陪我一齊慢行,嗚呀~此等絕世好山友,哪裏找啊!!??有緣遇上,是我的千世修行啊~~!!!

 

在Denisse良師的循循善誘下,我開始以另一種眼光看山、另一份心態去行山:行山,可以是體能鍛練式的跑山,可以是漫遊山林的散步,也可以走走停停的攝影行山;而山也是千變萬化,片刻不待,無一時之相同:這刻陽光燦爛,穿透綠葉,映照青苔;下一刻陽光驟然而歇,陰霾湧現,光華轉瞬,苔葉幽綠;光明光暗間,彈指一秒間,像是兩個世界,已彷如隔世;人心時刻躍動,山態千變萬化,人與人與山有幸在此時此刻遇上,其實每秒都是緣。

 

我們走走停停跑跑,在山的綠色世界中,開始說起故事來。

Denisse真係型到核爆,絕頂聰明,膽大進取,卻又心思慎密,心地好,又有自己的想法,當然追求者眾,她的結論是:「性是很好的運動。」

 

 

我在Hobart待了幾天,Denisse還帶了我去攀石+西班牙聚會+食印度餐,全是自己一個一定唔會去的活動,Denisse很會帶人離開comfort zone,給我開了很多新門,正呀~

 

可惜無時間坐低慢慢畫,只在西班牙聚會怱怱一畫Denisse芳容,期望再見您呀Denisse!

 

 

It was really my pleasure to meet Denisse. She was from Ecuador. She studied Marine biology in Australia and was doing her internship in Tasmania. She asked whether if anyone interested to walk Mount Wellington in Couchsurfing website and I said yes. So we arranged a time to meet and wait for the never-showing-bus and thanks for the kindness of my current CS host Kelvin in Hobart, he drove us to Mount Wellington and story began…

 

Denisse was strong. She loves sport. She didn’t tease/bully people because she was in her great fitness. She was a wonderful kind person and very considerate.

I was a slow walker and she was willing to walk slowly for me. She said slow walking was one of the hiking methods, didn’t need to running-hiking every time. She was in the mountain and she was in peace.

Denisse always encouraged me to ‘walk faster’. She would appreciate if I keep up the beat. She didn’t show any offensive if I slow down and she would walk slowly with me.

OMG, I was so lucky to find this wonderful thoughtful hiking partner!!

 

I saw the mountain in a different way through Denisse’s eyes. Hiking could be a physical challenge or leisurely wondering or artistic photo-taking-walking.

And the mountain was ever-changing. Sun shone through the green leaves in this moment. The light disappeared and the cloud came in the next moment. A second between light and shadow was like two different worlds. Human mind was ever-changing and so did the mountain. Human and human and mountain met in this UNIQUE moment for one chance in this life time.

 

 

We were talking in the green mountain.

Denisse was a smart girl. She was aggressive and yet detailed mind. She was considerate and yet independent. She had lots of suitors and her conclusion was, ‘Sex is a good exercise.’

 

I stayed in Hobart for a few days and Denisse brought me to rock climbing+Spanish gathering+going to an Indian restaurant. I did a lot interesting things which I would probably never do if I was alone. Denisse was the prefect guide who led a person out of his/her comfort zone. She opened lots of new doors for me in a short few days. She was an inspiring, energetic and creative girl. I was so glad I have met her :)

 

It was the pity that we didn’t have enough time to sit down and draw. I only sketched Denisse’s portrait in the Spanish gathering for a very short time. Hope to see you again, Denisse!
