I had been teaching myself to play Moonlight Sonata during my pregnancy but abandoned it after the birth of my son.


我怀孕的时候一直在自学《月光奏鸣曲》,但是在我儿子出生之后便放弃了。



He was diagnosed with "moderate to severe" autism at 2 and had acquired a vocabulary of only about 20 words by 3 1/2. We communicated very well with our family members' spoken language, a little sign language, and his picture system.


儿子在两岁的时候被确诊为“中度到严重”的自闭症,到三岁半的时候只会20个单词。结合我们的口语,一点手语,还有他自己的图画系统,我们一家人交流得还是十分顺畅的。




On this particular evening, I sat down to play the piano for the first time since his birth. About 3 minutes into Moonlight Sonata, he rushed downstairs and stood mesmerized at the piano. He then asked, as sweet and clear as a bell, "What's that music? It has colors!" This was his first coherent sentence, and with words we never knew he had -- or even dared to hope he would have. We were stunned and thrilled and amazed.  


在一个特殊的夜晚,我坐下来弹着钢琴,这是儿子出生后第一次弹琴。《月光奏鸣曲》弹了三分钟左右,他就冲下楼来,站在那儿痴迷地望着钢琴。然后,他问,声音就像铃声一样悦耳清澈,“这是什么音乐?它有颜色诶!”这是他说出的第一句连贯的话,还用了我都不知道他会的单词,我们甚至都不敢幻想他会这些词。我们都惊呆了,惊讶中又伴着欢喜。




He's matured into a shy, expressive, typical young adult, albeit with synesthsia (sound to color), perfect pitch, and a love of heavy metal guitar.


现在我已经长成为一个羞涩的、会表达的普通年轻人,虽然还是有共感(从声音到颜色的共感),但是投球非常精准,还十分热爱重金属吉他。
