real life tweet #4

i am a big fan of Ozu. link.
we can learn a lot from his films. a quick list:
1. life and people are impermanent.
2. slow down.
3. look people in the eye.
4. drink tea.
5. be kind.
6. simple things hold the secret.
tidbit: Ozu is mentioned quite a bit in the novel “The Elegance of the Hedgehog” by Muriel Barbery. I both enjoyed and had trouble with the book (though I seem to have a lot in common with the main character. read: love of Ozu and phenomenology). In the end I can’t decide whether I liked it enough to recommend it. I suppose I wanted to like it more but felt it was a bit “forced”.
p.s. tomorrow is your last day to submit a solution to “create a carrying case for ‘this is not a book’”.
p.p.s. A new challenge will be announced tomorrow.
p.p.p.s. there were too many quotes in the first postscript.
