    Y cada átomo nuestra conciencia...
    Estrellas en nuestro corazón. Me parece vislumbrar un rostro en el trazo caligráfico...

  2. In ancient Japanese this Kanji was used a word I like very much: 星港 (=The harbour of star). It was the name of Singapore, now written シンガポール

    I never understood why they call themselves as living in "The town of Lion", whereas the lions never went there...
