短篇故事集-與樹同行

緣起

Contes – Walk with Trees

Inception

望一望書架上的藏書,2010年4月還未有自己的作品出現!留下一個未完的心願.計算一下,印刷1000本100頁的書籍要花掉2-3萬圓,為的只是因為趕上出版的潮流!轉念一想,以樹木谷每天600-1300人次的瀏覽率,相比1000人的購書讀者,計算出來並不化算.

2010年4月谷主開始把<與樹同行>重新整理陸續發放在樹木谷"昔日周記"上,稍後再放回綠色廣場內.全輯有70篇的文章,記錄的是2008年至2010年間的作品.這兩年間谷主考上了樹藝師,也完成了應用心理學文憑,作品可閱性提高了.得到網友Mary的協助,翻譯成英文,讓讀者從另一角度再看內容一次.

今次內容與前一個版本增刪不少,每篇的文字稿多了一些,也減去累贅的樹木品種介紹,文章風格變得更加統一.分類上將近似的文章放在一起,不知放在那裡的文章便抽掉算了,閱讀上較為方便.

其中有些文章中的相片原稿遺失了,有些資料可能會引起不必要的爭議,落實出版書籍時都會刪除.網上版卻可以保留著.

70篇的網上文章,如果看一篇的中文版本用上一分鐘,看一篇的英文版本也用上一分鐘,便用上了140分鐘了.谷主相信這是一個很好的消閒讀物,希望你也會喜歡.

下次當你再來時,會有更多的樹木介紹.網上再見.

Looking at the book collection on the shelves, there is still no work of my own in April 2010 – a dream yet to be fulfilled!  Simple mathematics - to print 1,000 copies of a 100-page book takes about HK$20,000 – 30,000 – that’s the cost to catch up with the fad of publishing!  Then, I have a second thought.  The daily browsing rate of “The Vale of Trees” 樹木谷 is about 600 – 1,300 person-times.  Compare it to the 1,000 readers who buy the “book” and it’s quite obvious which is more cost-effective. 

I started to sort out and edit the articles in “Walk with Trees” 與樹同行in April 2010 and then put them in the “Weekly in the Old Days” 昔日周記of “The Vale of Trees” 樹木谷.  Later they will be put back in the ”Green Square” 綠色廣場.  There are a total of 70 articles, all written in the years 2008 to 2010, during which, I was admitted to arborist and completed a Diploma in Applied Psychology.  All these studies improve the readability of the articles.  With the English translation by Mary, hopefully, readers are also able to peruse the contents from a different angle. 

There are quite a number of additions and deletions made to the old versions. Each article has more text but with less verbose introduction of tree species. The writing style becomes more unified.  To categorize, similar articles are put together and some are dropped as I have no idea where to put them. It makes reading easier. 

Original photos of some articles were lost.  Some information may lead to unnecessary controversy.  Such will be deleted when books are going to be published, but will be retained in the online version.

70 online articles – if we spend a minute on each version, you will need 140 minutes.  I believe it is good leisure reading and hope you will enjoy. 

Next time when you visit, there will be more trees to be introduced.  See you online!
