Sakura ~Burrard Skytrain~

sakuraOn the way home from Downtown
Every April
There are these light pink Sakura
Blooming for the transient Spring
Its beauty was captured eternally
With a little digital camera

從市中心回家的必經之路上
每一年的四月
都能在這看到淡粉色櫻花
雖然櫻花的季節是那麼短暫
鏡頭下的時間
卻是永恆

Jericho SailboatsSailboats sitting on sand beach
You may have sailed with these boats
And may have fallen into the water
You may still remember the bitterness of the ocean
And may have realized
It was the taste of life

歇息在海岸邊的練習用帆船
曾經與他們一同出海並肩作戰
途中不小心掉進了海裡一次
當時的海水有點苦
同時也突然意識到
這就是海洋的味道

Jericho Sailing CentreSailing is all about wind
Knowing which direction the wind comes from
Knowing which way you must head to
Then adjust your sails
And head to the Goal.

帆船的一切來自風
得知道風從哪來
得知道自己要往哪走
然後學會調整風帆
往目的地前進。

Devonshire Park ~maze~

Devonshire ParkIf you walk into this Maze at Devonshire Park
Every fork you run into will look exactly the same as what you have seen
In a way that you will think you have done no progress
You have not been moving since you entered
You have lost your way.

But just hold up your fears
Don't stop
Keep moving
Keep going
The Goal is only about two minutes away.

Devonshire Park's 的迷宮,是一個神奇的綠色世界
一旦進入,每一條所轉過的彎,宛如就像剛才才經過的分岔口
讓人以為自從走入這個迷宮
就不曾有過任何實際的進度
不曾移動過
完全的迷失

但先不要怕
不要停下來
繼續移動腳步
繼續往前
距離真正的出口,其實只有兩分鐘而已。

待つこと。 ~the small trivia called waiting~

待つこと。

犬は、みんなが思ってるよりも、
待つことが得意なんです。
踏み切りでも、しばらく待ちます。
ごはんやおやつも、待ってられます。
おとうさんが、個室にいるときも、
ドアの外でずっと待ってます。
ちっちゃいときから、
ずっっと、待つのは得意です。
<『ブイヨン豆知識(未刊)』より>

the small trivia called waiting

More than expected,
Dogs are good at waiting.
He will wait for level crossing.
He will wait for meals and desserts.
Even when Dad is in his studio,
He will wait and wait outside the door.
Ever since it's just a small puppy,
He's been really good at waiting.

~From Bouillon Trivia "Buiyon Mamechishiki" (Unpublished)~

Love is powerful and it is even more powerful when you have all your love for just one being.
