My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen
I love something like this. It brings home to me the deep flow of time.
Konichigua, Kunihiko! (Here is morning yet)This beautiful "moon above the trees" inmediately remembers me of an old song by american songwriter James Taylor: "That lonesome road". Here goes the lyrics:"Walk down that lonesome road all by yourselfDon't turn your head back over your shoulderAnd only stop to rest yourself when the silver moonIs shining high above the treesIf I had stopped to listen once or twiceIf I had closed my mouth and opened my eyesIf I had cooled my head and warmed my heartI'd not be on this road tonightCarry on, carry onNever mind feeling sorry for yourselfIt doesn't save you from your troubled mindWalk down that lonesome road all by yourselfDon't turn your head back over your shoulderAnd only stop to rest yourself when the silver moonIs shining high above the trees"I hope you like it; if you can hear it, much better; it's very special.Best wishes for you and your family.Mariano
Dear Mariano,Thank you heartily for your very warmhearted and beautiful comment.I know the various songs of James Taylor, but was completely unaware of his great "That lonesome road" until now.Thank you for letting me know such a touching song. Immediately I checked YouTube and could find it. Our paths of life may resemble a cold lonesome road and we may come across different precious episodes during this solitary journey in a wintry wilderness.May the silver moon guide us with her serene moonlight.With friendly regards,
Dear kay,Thank you again so much for your kind comment and support to my blog.I noticed this winter moon high in the cold steel-blue sky when I was about to leave the garden after photographing the flowers of early flowering Ume trees. In the traditional culture of Japan, the moon symbolizes the absolute truth which beacons our lost minds. I wish you all the best.
