Teganuma is a place where I hold profound memories of sharing time with my family.
In my childhood; I used to go fishing, had lunch, row a boat, and played until the sunset.
Teganuma is a pond in northern part of Chiba Prefecture in Japan.
For a long time, she has suffered from heavy pollution.
However in recent years, she has shown some improvements.
Once in a while, she shows her graceful BEING in tranquility.
One morning on a foggy windless day, when the surface of the lake is like a mirror;
Feeling of an existence grows, as the color blurs in the daybreak and the sunset.
Ripple on a water surface, plants standing at a waterside, a quiet sky, and a serene cloud.
They even harmonize with the bridge and the device meant for fishing.
When I come across such an appearance, I feel a sense of universal existence in the various presences of the daily life that we often ignore.
My heart is moved and fulfilled, and I feel divine.
A thought enters my mind:
“When I become a father, I’ll come back to Teganamuna to cultivate a bond with my family.”
