Autumn. In this season, there is a Japanese song that I always think about and often find myself singing. "Momiji (Maples)" Aki no yuuhi ni teruyama momiji Koimo usuimo kazuaru nakaniMatsu wo irodoru kaede ya tsuta waYama no fumoto no susomoyou (Fiery red are maples,Spreading over the mountains,Gleaming in the sunshine,Dark and light in autumn tints,Red and yellow maples, and evergreens so tall,Brocades of nature, charming is the fall.) There are a lot of major disasters happening around the world now. Every day many people are losing their lives as aresult of them. What can each of us do as a member of society during such a difficult time? As always I believe we canlearn to have a greater appreciation of the blessings of Mother nature and we can also make every effort to be kind tonature, animals, and the people around us. "Like a spring wind, treat others with gentleness. Like an autumn frost, treat yourself with severity" In the past I received these words from Suganuma-sensei and lately I think about them again.
