I got away for the long weekend to play in nature with friends. Although my upper body still does not have the strength to pull myself up onto a surf board due to the accident 6 months ago I had fun body boarding on the Pacific waves. This morning I woke up early (5:20) feeling invigorated and recharged, I feel Spring in my body. I have an orientation today and next week start a year long film production program, I am feeling ready to push myself. Wish me luck.
Gunbare translated from Japanese means to persevere, to not give up. It was one of the first sayings I learned when I first went to Japan and it is evident that the Japanese need global support right now after these tumultuous events. I envision Japan whole heartedly re-embracing its nature loving Shinto roots while it recovers and rebuilds.
