word of the month - selected by Shimizu Sensei
Sept. 21, 2010

'I am very busy, therefore …' is often stated as an excuse.

The character however for the word 'busy' is a compound of heart and loose. So while saying: 'I am busy, very busy', you forget that life is finite and flows by that very moment.
