tail tale

A tiny ant is too tiny to be crushed by a giant elephant. A fearless rhino is shot and put down by a coward man for meager fare to feed his family.

Strive for a better life or stay alive?

We tend to focus on the agenda that affects us and rarely notice the story behind each tale.

 

幸せとか、生きる意味とか、自分が一体何者なのかとかは、探して見つけるものではなく、作っていくものらしい。

昨日も今日も、そして、明日も変わりはないのに、自分が生きていることに意味を持たせようとするのは、私たちだけなのだろうか。

    目の前にある課題にあたるのはそれが簡単だから。その背景に気がつかないのはそれが難しいから。ひとは見たいものしか見ないもの。少しずつ違う同じ日々が繰り返されるから、何か意味が欲しいのかも。
