  6. THIS WORLD - Toshio Nakae

    Water and water
    do not mistake each other.
    Water and water
    know each other very well.
    Fish and reeds
    know that very well.
    In this world, in other words,
    all kinds of water live.

    Wind and wind
    do not mistake each other.
    On the contrary, wind and wind
    well know the difference between themselves.
    Birds and trees, therefore,
    call them by quite distinct names.
    In this world, in other words,
    all kinds of wind live.

    These various countless waters
    and various countless winds
    cover the earth
    and eagerly enwrap it ever more deeply.
    They envelop this earth softly and strongly.
    And then, are born, like chickens,
    various countless things, some with, some without, shape.

  7. My favourite read was "The Pilgrimage of Harold Fry". Such a sweet book! Thanks for the giveaway. :-)

    Literary Blog Hop Giveaway.
    I hope you will stop by!

  29. I liked Cinder by Marissa Meyer and The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King! Thanks for this amazing giveaway - I would love to win!

  30. So far my favorite summer read ad been re-reading Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen

  31. Thank you for your generosity, and for being part of the Literary Giveaway Hop. My favorite reads so far, towards Spring/Summer have been:

    1) A Good American by Alex George
    2) On The Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

    Both deal with family, but in completely different manners. One is the story of one family's migration, and then subsequent assimilation, into their new world - and how each generation becomes more and more entangled in the soil that is now their home. And the other deals with how friends can be family, and sometimes that which we don't know (and sometimes don't understand) can become the basis of understanding our own life, our own history. Have a wonderful summer :D
