When you are wrapped in the silence, you are listening to the song of wind.
Even when you are passing at a temple with no name (probably you just don’t know it) and even if you are not a Buddhist (probably not anyway), old wooden figures at a gate would stand out in your memory for a while. Their weathered faces are made by rain, wind, sun beam and awe.
Some words would be needed. First of all, it’s a cherry tree in bloom and cherry blossoms are sometimes interpreted as a symbol of growth in Japan because a school year starts in April with full blooming Sakura cherry. However there are so many kinds of Sakura and one of them starts blooming in December or January. It might not be the best one but it is still beautiful.
The word ‘Favorites’ is quite common but it always reminds me a voice of Julie Andrews probably because it is still a foreign word for me and I learned it in the movie. That’s not so bad.
This week I’ve picked out a photo I dropped the idea to post for WPC at once, capturing my favorite place.
A Part of Wordless Wednesday
my second contribution to WPC: Ascend.
Sometimes we need to be crawling up an easy slope. Our daily life always has a difficult face and we aren’t aware of it.
He was just walking on a slope of huge pier but looked strange somehow probably because he was, of course, not a passenger of the Diamond Princess nor Asuka II. He was not a crew, neither. However he must be a crew of our planet. That’s a life.
Common children shall be naughty. It’s a sort of raisin d’être (reason to be) and I seemed to be a sort of their reason to play a joke especially during my overseas trips. Many years ago I was at a middle of a ski slope just under a chair lift. Holding a snowboard I was climbing a steep, actually gentle, hill in a winter resort of Canadian Rocky Mountains for my first experience of snowboarding. Yes, it was the first experience for me. When I looked up the sky to pause for catching breath, a small boy above me spoke to me from his chair
“Why don’t you take a lift? Good luck!”
Ok, thank you. I was a beginner and I didn’t come up with any smart thing to say in English. At least it was lucky for me that I didn’t find cheeky words, neither.
