`music wa subarashii`---

music is wonderful.

One song is called Saboten no Hana, by a group called Tulip.

And one translates as ` walk with your head held high` by Kyu Sakamoto.

I post the song below, Saboten no Hana (Flower on a Cactus would be my translation), a popular song some years ago by a group called Tulip, because when I heard it today and closed my eyes it reminds me of a beautiful and positive spirit of Japan.
If you want to, just close your eyes and listen...

With thoughts of calm and healing energy to Fukushima Ken and the NorthEast, with wishes for their return to homes and to recovery...with wishes of peace and love and light...

Thanks for all your heartfelt communications over this past week.

Glad to hear from you. I love Kyo Sakamoto - you're referring to the Sukiyaki Song, aren't you?

Music is good for calming down. I tend to listen to music on my headphone whilst working on translations. Helps to get me through the day!
