Hemingway’s Rope
海明威之繩

For a while, I used to see a boat with the name Hemingway moored at Causeway Bay. Tied to the pier, it was a poignant and tension-filled metaphor of a person’s fate being tied to the land. Water . . . Now—Hemingway’s Rope reflects the trials we experience in life through time, and expresses the idea that, no matter how arduous the process, our heart ultimately returns to the land where we are rooted.

有一陣子,我在銅鑼灣避風塘常看到一艘名為「海明威號」的小船,它的船纜繫着碼頭的樁柱,好像命運必然連繫着土地一樣,充滿着掙扎與張力。創作《海明威之繩》,就是要說生命熬過時光的歷練,不管過程中如何堅毅,心靈最後還得回到扎根的土地去。
