" Nothing " Japanese calligraphy

   "" (mu, or nai). It is translated as nothing, nil, zero, naught, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.

   Etymology : Hieroglyph
   It looks like a person dances with a decoration.

   One of the teachings of the Buddhism.

一切は「無」, 一切は「空」。

     All is " Nothing ", all is " Void ".

   At first when I was born, I have nothing other than my body.
   And grow up while acquiring various materials and thoughts.
   Last moments, must abandon all of them.

So, i will come back there.
   It is very natural and smooth flow.

   It is only just a "ZEN", isn't it?

   arigatou  gozaimashita.
   ありがとう ございました。

The island of the illusion

     A daredevil man do fishing without attaching a life jacket.
    He does not know where himself is.

    It may be a human being.

     There is the very dangerous and beautiful place where the angler of some lost their life.
    Now, his life may be lighter than one fish.

    There are only him and me here.
    We can look at the island of the illusion slightly on the horizon.

     Birds · · · birds are freedom eternally.
    And they may be safer than a human being.

    Because they do only that themself can do it.
    And they are satisfied with it.

    Yes. I should know those men are necessary, shouldn't it ?
    However, as for life being an illusion, both that man and the bird may be the same.

    The monument of the cape had seen all.

    Here is minato Karatsu-shi Saga Prefecture.
    Please Look at the view from here of other my post.

 ******* Monologue ******* 

    I contributed this article to 10.25.2009.
    Now post it again. This is my origin.

    When i began this blog in July, 2009, my photo was monotonous.
    Because my thought was not put inside.
    i was dissatisfied with it.

    Then i watched "Alienation and Despair" from Something Sighted by JAMES.
    The photograph had "Story". It certainly seemed to speak to me.
    There was the heart of the photographer inside.

    I realized what wasn't enough to me, and noticed myself.
    This post photographed a story of certain scenery for the first time.

    I intended to recur to the origin of my own again, and contributed this article.

    Thank you for looking at my little way.
    Here where I am.

" Person " Japanese calligraphy

  "" (ninn, or hito). It is translated as a person, man, human being, people, etc.
  This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.

  Etymology : Pictogram
  It looks like this character stands a man.
  His hand supports the body.

  It is often used for the example talk of people helping each other.

  This meaning reminds me of the love of mother and child.
  I like states of parent and child whom is hand in hand.
