物の哀れ: life's empathy

Lifestyle > Japanese and Kaizen

I'll be heading back to my beloved Japan this April, to finish my last chapter.

Perhaps I'll be able to turn that final page, and begin my life's next calling.

By: Candice Kumai

物の哀れ: Mono No Aware:

Life’s empathy, a transience, a deep + gentle sadness, this has been an anthem to me. Because life simply wasn’t designed to be perfect. And I speak only the truth that I know.

What has taught us lessons in the past will lead us into a much deeper and profound reality. My dad once told me that life is full of surprises…and I cannot wait to see what it has in store for each of us.

I’ll be heading back to my beloved Japan this April, for my book’s last chapter. I’ll be meeting mom in Tokyo and able to share more with you on my life’s work and calling. I cannot wait to see what surprises and what open doors may bring to each of us. Keep your doors open, let the light in… What was once darkness, can now be made into light.

In preparation,
気をつけて, kitotsukete, ck
