I, by all means, am not a speaker of Japanese; however, I do appreciate the beauty of the language. I especially love how some of its words can be, at the same time, both simple and profoundly complex.
Many of the most moving and spiritual words are nearly impossible to translate properly into English because they convey more a feeling than a thought.
“Komorebi” is one such word that, to truly understand it, one must experience it, feel it. This morning, as I was sitting in the shade in my backyard, I looked up to see the sun shining through the trees and I felt it…
I love my backyard.
