The moon is beautiful = I Love You

 Back in early 1900th, Japanese famous writer Soseki Natsume translated English sentence, "I Love You" to "The moon is beautiful, isn't it?"

When I heard this, I was like, who's gonna get the idea?

In Japanese, we use "like" a lot when we tell each other's affection, but we do use "love" when we say "love towards animals" "love for trains" not for the conversational words to each other, but of course, there is love.

At the same time, there's two kinds of words to express love, that is "Koi" and "Ai (love)"

"Koi" is like, very flirting, romantic feeling and more self centered. I like him, I want to be with you, very passionate.

Love cares for the other person. I want that person to be happy.

Last Friday, after work, the moon was almost full moon so big and bright  at the still low, east side of the sky. It was so beautiful so I wanted to take a picture but with my old iPhone, couldn't take a good one. Looking at the my own eyes and pics are very different.

I still sent the pic to the person I cared for, saying, "look at the moon if you can, it's big and beautiful!"

I wanted to show, sharing the stuff I think it's cool, and looking at the same thing at the same time zone.

If you have that kind of feelings, maybe you love him/her somewhat I bet.

Flower of Life – Blue – my experience after I put this in my house.


What is Flower of Life ?

When I was 2nd grade in a math class, we were using a compass to make a patterns.  I put circles together and make something similar to this flower of life, but much smaller, more like a seed of life.

Many decades later, I am into this spiritual symbols, put this symbol in my living room, desktop wall paper at my work. It has power to change your life, at first there might be some uncomfortable changes, but it is like to put all the bad stuff out from your system to welcome a new one.

After a while, I had some uncomfortable changes in my life (but not that bad ones), don't know where this is going to, but feels like it leads to some good one.

Sober and Happy T-shirt

 Are you sober? Are you happy?

I drink so little, because my body doesn’t break down alcohol well, lack of enzyme maybe, but I like parties, I don’t mind being sober around drunk people.

I used to work for a Japanese Izakaya restaurant, serving food and drinks. Friday nights were so busy. I miss Izakaya! Even though I don’t drink, I love food in Izakaya like sashimi, fried chicken, fried potatoes, salad, fried tofu, the list continues.. I miss restaurant, indoor! warm in the winter, cool in the hot summer.
