ーーーー Commentaries by Hybrid Leisureland ーーーー

< bird library >
Though it isn’t possible to hoard and retain the volumes of words and voices that pass by,
we must try our best to listen and memorize them.

< stripe borderline >
We may have the chance to meet untold numbers of people, possibly having the chance to interact.
Though the moment of meeting seems commonplace, it is deeply significant.

< strong capsule >
The world is overflowing with contradictions. But among those I find my truth.
There are infinite choices among them.

< one size >
I would hope you remember that there is an essence in you that nobody can imitate.
That is your inner nature and your own unique vulnerability.

< nonpolarity hand >
You may take the hand of untold hundreds.
The warmth of that hand can convey effortlessly, without words.

< idly >
A languid sunny Saturday afternoon.
I put a lid on time, without thinking of intentions to do this or that.

< three clocks >
The time gone by, the time to come, now.
There is no time to be lost between the experiences of the past and the hopes of the future.

< snack desert moon >
On an evening in the desert, illuminated by the moon, a sheep has a dream.
It moves faster than light to the end of water’s flow.

< second reason >
Everyone knows what the most important thing is.
Nobody knows what a second most important thing is.

< grant dance >
Without following anything, without saying anything,
the world spins on as if it were most natural to do so.

< segmentation >
Dividing, composing, over and over.
Without even knowing my own inner core, my core exists.
This is neither pain nor joy.
