Vol. 144 Individualist “Chptr 12 and Vrs 2”

Following on interview with Nakane-san “Ren” on  “Individualist “Chptr 12 and Vrs 1”. Japanese state of mind. That’s what I have been thinking of through entire time with this platform. Most of us as Japanese do not even care about who we really are I assume. but once you are actually exposed to different culture, you can’t help but to think about it just even for a second.

Though I would like to keep up with what the world can offer to me about everything I am fond of, cherry blossom that fully bloomed will only be something that can keep up with time that passes by.Recently I have been busy just getting away from what needs to be done and started to feel that I get lazy again. Climbing up on the hill of my mood to feel great about being who I am Continue Reading →
