Old Wall

I remember that in a celebrity interview column, the journalist interviewed Yu Qiuyu, a famous cultural scholar. On the scene of the program, the reporter showed the following picture: in front of the shaking scene, Mr. Yu Qiuyu’s former residence gradually became clear from faint. Finally, the scene was fixed on a wall, that was not an ordinary wall. On the wall which had gone through the vicissitudes of wind and rain, two words, though vague, could still be distinguished clearly: autumn rain. The word autumn rain goes through time and space, lengthens our memory and brings us back to the past. These two words were written by Mr. Yu Qiuyu himself with charcoal when he was a child. They were skew but powerful. But at this moment, the earth wall, as the carrier of Mr. Yu Qiuyu’s unforgettable years, made the people on the scene deeply touched that the earth wall penetrated through the wind, Frost, rain and snow, leaving mottled memories. I think it is also a background wall, reflecting the mental journey of an ignorant teenager in the past time. Perhaps, Mr. Yu Qiuyu, like each of us in his childhood, was full of curiosity and speculation about the outside world. He is eager to walk out of the village where he lives and go far away. However, when he wrote the word Qiu Yu with his hand, he never thought that decades later, the simple two words would appear in front of him again, which would make people more imaginative, reveries add endless. Indeed, we really want to thank that old wall which is old but still tenacious. It is the witness of a period of history and how many wonderful dreams it has bred! Wall, the wall in real life, is not strange to us. In life, there are solid walls which connect the courtyards around and play a protective role. Such as earth wall, brick wall, fence wall, city wall, etc. What is the most intuitive feeling they bring us? In front of the sudden eyes, the partition is blocked, and the depression is depressing. Some walls, after years of corrosion, did not fall down; Some walls, which could not withstand the wind and rain, collapsed and razed to the ground; Some walls, only the dilapidated walls, which made people feel sad. When we ordinary people build a wall with hard hands and sweat, it means we have more constraints and safety in our hearts. This is the simplest idea. Of course, from another perspective, when we understand the towering wall from the spiritual level, the solid wall may be endowed with more connotations of cultural thoughts. As mentioned above, the Wall deep in Mr. Yu Qiuyu’s heart is engraved not only his own name, but also the hope and dream of a young man in that hard time. And this, I think, is enough to support the commanding height of his belief, making him go far away and further and further. Coincidentally, Gu Mingda, the vice president of Capital academy of calligraphy and painting, who was awarded the honorary title of meritorious painter by the Ministry of Human Resources, loved painting when he was young. When the reporter interviewed him, he broke the peeling adobe wall in his home, he also captured the fragments of his childhood life: on the wall, the painting traces of Gu Mingda in his childhood can be faintly seen. In Gu Mingda’s own words, when he chose painting, his family didn’t agree at first, but the earth wall was the place where his childhood dream was bred. Gu Mingda chose painting, which became an important part of his life until he walked out of the courtyard surrounded by earth walls and walked towards the vast painting world. Yes, our society is constantly undergoing profound changes. The villages we used to be familiar with and all kinds of walls in the villages we could not be familiar with, especially some old walls with a long history, are gradually fading out of our vision. Instead, there are some smooth cement walls and glittering porcelain walls matching with high-rise villas. The only thing that deserves our memory and nostalgia, and what is worth our treasure is that kind of old wall complex that will never grow old, and that kind of old wall complex that can always stretch across our hearts and breed dreams, and the old wall of childhood that can rise to the spiritual level!
