A little closer

I’m wondering if it is good
to write this on my blog or not….

But since today was
kind of an important day for me in that
I actually took an action
rather than just writing my thoughts on this blog,
I think I will keep this post as my record.

*******************************

I went to a flea market today.

Not to shop
but
to have a booth there.

I had been planning on this
since that week of massive earthquakes.

I was looking for a way to help
but the situation was too much of a chaos
that the sites were not ready to
accept volunteers or goods.

Instead, what we were encouraged to do
was to donate money.
But then,
sadly and embarrassingly
I didn’t have much
I could donate.

I felt useless.

So I started to think of other ways to be a little help.

I remembered how much I used to enjoy
having a booth at a flea market
so I decided that I would raise money
by selling what I have.

That way, I could recycle and raise money at the same time.

Perfect!
*******************************

Thanks to my family
who has also donated things for me to sell,
thanks to Mr. and Mrs.Morita
who have given me a ride to the flea market…

I sold most of what I’d taken with me
and raised about

14245 yen (about 175 USD)

I will donate the money to

あしなが育英会

hoping that the lives of children
who’ve lost their parent(s)
will be brighter in the future.

As much as I wanted to help people
who were and are devastated,
much of the motivation came from
my own self-hatred as well.

I wanted to cleanse my mind and soul.

…I want to see how I would feel
after I actually send the money
to the donation fund.

See?
After all,
I’m such a *me, me* person!

Oh boy

….but

Oh well.

There’s not much about a person that doesn’t reflect “self”–it’s our way of interacting with the universe.
