i haven't posted in a long time, again. you should be getting used to that ;)

i have a phone interview for a job in about 10 minutes. while researching their site, i found this. i like it:
“What is it, “Kokoro”?
It is the sound of the pine breeze there in the painting.”

Above is the poem by the priest Ikkyu, one of the greatest Japanese Zen monks in the 15th century. “Kokoro” is the Japanese word inclusive of heart, mind and spirit, which is like the sound of the pine breeze in the painting. Thus, we cannot see nor hold it, but if it is executed well, we can hear it.
