We need more of this in the world.

To get to a Japanese temple, you first have to be soaked by mist? Think I’ll pass.


#4

komorebi, a word that roughly means “sunlight filtering through trees”

That goes right in the scrapbook now. Beautiful.


#5

Not soaked.

Greeted by air and water. Refreshed. Having your senses tickled.


#6

And where is the bee-yoo-tiful Japanese temple?
My God, what have I done?

And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may ask yourself, “Well… how did I get here?”
And you may ask yourself, “Where is that beautiful temple?”
And you may tell yourself, “This is not where I wanted to go”
And you may tell yourself, “These are not my shoes I’m walking in”
And you may ask yourself, “Am I right? Am I wrong?”
And you may tell yourself, “My God! What have I done?”

This is what it reminded me of:

Years back my wife and I ended up on an accidental hike down in Shizuoka and ended up going through a forest for about 1Km and the whole time was just that of golden hour type sunlight coming down through the trees. Just amazing!

If you look up 木漏れ日, there are some lovely images, like the YouTube slideshow:
