【樂活書蟲】在廟口說書──在歷史中散步

一, 2011/02/21 - 21:11 — 陳晉茂

 

 

去了許多地方旅行,地點或許不同,卻逐漸發現自己追求的是相同的元素:自然美景、古蹟建築、風土人情、當地食物。再深入分析,我透過旅行想得到的其實是體驗與了解。體驗美(自然之美、建築之美、多樣性之美、食物之美);了解人的歷史,了解不同的故事與思維。

 

最終,還是想透過這一切來發現並認識自己。

 

台南是一個能同時滿足我多項心靈需求之地。我喜歡她的小吃美食;喜歡她的悠閒步調;喜歡居民的和善親切;喜歡她隨處是老樹、老房子,歷史就在身旁的感覺。

 

台南的古蹟建築不是只有一般人熟知的安平古堡、赤崁樓等著名景點,還有許多與民宅相鄰的古蹟廟宇,每次我到台南總喜歡慢慢探索,欣賞建築的美,了解背後的歷史與故事。一個一個慢慢了解、像打游擊一樣,雖然必有所得,始終未能拼湊出一個全貌。不過,當我讀了王浩一的《在廟口說書》,這個整體面貌似乎慢慢浮現出來‧‧‧‧‧‧

 

這本書以時間為軸,介紹各時期興建的各項古蹟。從明鄭時期鄭成功擊退荷蘭人起,到清末劉銘傳離開台灣止。書中不但有完整深入的故事、有影像、有精美手繪圖,更附了一張台南舊城區導覽地圖。有了時間、空間的索引,突然間,我粗略吸收的點狀知識如撥雲見日般成了有架構的網狀知識!

 

鄭成功、鄭經父子,天地會的陳永華,沈葆禎,劉銘傳‧‧‧‧‧‧這些歷史人物,曾與這些建築發生許多峰迴路轉、精采動人的故事。而這些建築與生長於其間的老樹,經歷了改朝換代,看盡了悲歡離合、看透了人間無常,此刻還佇立於原地,除了展現它的美,也向用心的人們訴說這些歷史故事。

 

在台灣,要能這麼完整的「看見」歷史,深刻思考自己的過去,恐怕只有在台南了。下次來到台南,除了品嚐小吃美食,不妨帶著這些故事前來,相信會有不同的體會。而且,當你了解到這些古蹟的種種,你會發現,你才真正通曉了台灣明清時期的故事。

coach factory outlet

http://www.coachfactoryoutletstars.com I have a bit of an obsession with Spelling Manor’s new owner coach factory outlet , 24-year-old Petra Ecclestone coach outlet, and her older sister Tamara Ecclestone Coach sunglasses
. Petra has a handbag line and theoretically Tamara’s a television personality and model Coach Wallets
, but really, they’re just full-time rich people who have taken a shine to the paparazzi spotlight coach purses. In my mind, the gossip about people like that is always way more interesting than the gossip about movie stars coach handbags
coach bags or reality TV famewhores because their lives have been so much weirder since birth coach purses outlet. (Not to mention that it’s a harder world inside of which to get a peek.)

Until the sisters eventually ink a deal for a reality show Coach Wallets outlet

It’s hard to tell from the angle, but I think that Petra’s carrying a rare coach store outlet, incredibly expensive Hermes So Black Crocodile Birkin, complete with gorgeous tonal black hardware coach factory. Tamara, on the other hand, has the first bright yellow Celine Phantom Luggage Tote that I’ve seen in the wild http://www.coachfactoryoutletstars.com.
