Every weekend for as long as I can remember, my father would get up on a Saturday,

在我能够记住的每个周末,我的父亲在周六起床后,
put on a worn sweatshirt and he'd scrape away at the squeaky old wheel of a house that we lived in.
会穿上一件旧T恤衫,他会刮掉我们所住的老房子的油漆。
I wouldn't even call it restoration; it was a ritual, catharsis.
ҡӡٷַ22270.COM我不能把它叫做修整,那是一种仪式,一种净化。
He would spend all year scraping paint with this old heat gun and a spackle knife,
他会用整整一年的时间来用他的热风枪以及抹墙粉刀来刮掉油漆,
and then he would repaint where he scraped, only to begin again the following year.
然后他会重新油漆他刮掉的部分,这只是为了能在来年重新开始。
Scraping and re-scraping, painting and repainting: the work of an old house is never meant to be done.
刮漆和再次刮漆,油漆和再次油漆,这所老房子的工作永远不会结束。
