Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, there are still two cups at my table.

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Cardinal at my Window

I live in Michigan. It's snowing.

My office is on the second floor of our building, an the treetops come up to the level of my windows.

Sitting outside is a cardinal, just sitting; watching. For myself, I could sit and watch him all day.


mado no soto wa koukanchou ni matte imasu.
yuki futte arimasu.
jimujo no uchi wa mite imasu...

A cardinal waits outside the window.
Snow is falling.
Inside my office, I watch...
