The wind blew

On a train.

Reading a book.

The window is opened.

The moment the train enters

the tunnel,

strong wind blew

blowing the pages of the book.

Suddenly a bookmark that I never noticed being there

falls on the floor.

I pick up.

On the bookmark it says

成功するまで続けず

途中であきらめてしまえば、

それで失敗である。 (松下幸之助)

If you don’t try until you are successful,

and if you give it up half way,

only then, it is a failure.

(Yukinosuke Matsushita)

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

Sometimes

the right words fall upon from nowhere,

like it was meant to be.

Remembering Ishinomaki

I wonder

how people I’ve met in Ishinomaki

are doing these days.

I wonder

if they’ve found a place to live

besides school classrooms.

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

Looking at the film photos

that I took in Ishinomaki,

it makes me miss all the smiles I met there.

The changes

Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.

Hopefully…

Hopefully,

by the time I upload all the photos

I’ve taken in NY,

spring will be here.

Quick quick,

because I don’t have

that many more left.

A warm cloudy day

or

a cold sunny day.

I think I take the latter one though.

that

is

neither

cold or warm.

I love you even though you’re faking….


Yesterday,

I was telling Matthew that I love

strawberry flavor.

No no, not the flavor of strawberry.

I’m saying

I love

fake strawberry flavor.

So Leonardo,

you came to Thailand.

you came to New York.

Are you here in Tokyo yet?

The vintage buttons

I’d gone crazy over.

The day I felt that the spring was

not too far from where I was standing.

The santa that made me feel sad.

The day

I was simply happy.

A spot of RED

Finally got my photos developed.

I was actually going to get that done

while I was still in NY

but oh well, that is okay.

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

I’ve been told by many people that I walk slow.

At first, I thought it was only men

who think I walk slow

but apparently,

my sisters think I walk slow too.

Well, fine then.

I walk slow.

I walk slow because it’s too difficult

to walk fast

and to look up and down.

I tend to not look at right and left.

(Oh I know it’s a bad idea.

But it’s so difficult to look up and down and right and left

and ‘up&down’ is more interesting to look at than ‘right&left’)

Well, anyways….

I like to look at

below my eye levels and

above my eye levels

and that is my excuse for me

not being able to walk fast.

See, when you look

below your eye level,

you may find stuff like this.

(Too bad it’s blurry

but I also like it blurry.)

a moment of spark

illustration by flowerball

I thought I lost a roll of film

that I’ve finished in NY

and I was disappointed

but then something sparked in my mind

last night

when I was about to go to bed.

I was pretty confident that the film

would be inside this box I have.

I got up this morning,

opened a box

and the film was there.

I love that moment.

The moment something sparks

in your mind.
