I decided to write about things that opened me up. Things that warmed me and could melt away the barrier that i have put in place.
1）collecting The sound of Sushi
Was at Sushi Ichi interviewing chef Masakazu Ishibashi. I asked him what he enjoyed about making sushi. And he demonstrated to me.
“I want you to listen”, he said.
and then he sliced a piece of fish. he wanted me to hear the sound of slicing.
then he went on to grate wasabi on the board.
next, he snapped on a piece of sushi.
in these little moments, i opened up.
i feel thankful and really blessed. I know this is divine help.
2)back at home, at bedtime, i put my baby to sleep. he yawned a yawn. and i thought how beautiful that is. the shape of the mouth, the lightly closed eyes. this is beauty.
and i opened up a little.
and then i remembered what Taiwanese author Jiang Xun said, look for beauty in life. that would be the best redemption.
3) Then i heard Li Yapeng say, when you meet with difficulty in life, the only way to go, is to meet with it head on.
