winning is…from The Buddha

When you move your focus from competition to contribution life becomes a celebration. Never try to defeat people, just win their hearts.”

The two of them waited - no need to rush. They had plenty of time. Enough time to recover the time they had lost. The time they shared.

Shinjuku or chiyoda

Chiyoda it probably is, I know I want to extend it to 7th.

It means taking the Shinkansen back to source…

Like a pilgrimage. Murakami writes about travelling the whole world and still being yourself and then he ushers us into the two moons in the sky. One, like a child holding its mothers skirts, playing hide and seek. How can anyone remain the same after this?

I was always hungry for love. Just once, I wanted to know what it was like to get my fill of it — to be fed so much love I couldn’t take any more. Just once.
