    In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.
    vulnerable 脆弱的
    年幼脆弱~
    turn over反复考虑
    ever since从那时到现在
    but we've always been unusually communicative in a reserved way
    用一种冷淡的方式
    veteran bores 经验丰富的讨厌的人
    be privy to对……知情
    feigned sleep假寐

    preoccupation入神
    a hostile levity 恶意的,轻浮
    unmistakable 明白地

    We walked through a high hallway into a bright rose-colored space, fragilely bound into the house by French windows at either end. The windows were ajar and gleaming white against the fresh grass outside that seemed to grow a liitlle way into the house. A breeze blew through the room, blew curtains in at one end and out the other like pale flags, twisting them up towards the frosted wedding-cake of the ceiling, and then rippled over the wine-colored rug, making a shadow on it as wind does on the sea.
