Good old memories with " Once in a lifetime encounter " Japanese calligraphy


There are parents, brothers, family...
The place that anyone always returns.

   This house is cultural assets stored in a state about 50 years ago.

   Childhood, I played with friends around my house.
The long way.   The high wall...

At the time, I felt so.

   The building becomes old.
However, the nostalgia...

They are vivid, still now.

The disappearance of any building will be unavoidable.
No matter how luxurious it is.
Its Impermanence has already been described in Hōjōki, published in 1212. 

Nor is it clear to me, as people are born and die, where they are coming from and where they are going.  
Nor why, being so ephemeral in this world, they take such pains to make their houses pleasing to the eye.  
The  master and the dwelling are competing in their transience.  
Both will perish from this world like the morning glory that blooms in  the morning dew.  
In some cases, the dew may evaporate first, while the flower remains -- but only to be withered by the morning sun.  
In others the flower may wither even before the dew is gone, but no one expects the dew to last until evening.

Hōjōki Chapter 1   Section 3

"Once in a lifetime encounter"

Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur...

( ichi  go  ichi  e )

This proverb comes from the tea ceremony.
And it is the knowledge of the first on the list of Sen no Rikyū.
