Like a Night Bird


Utagawa Hiroshige, “Small Horned Owl on a Maple Branch under Full Moon”

“The human heart is like a night bird. Silently waiting for something, and when the time comes, it flies straight toward it.”

Hatuki Murakami, “Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage”

I have just finished this breathtaking book and need some quiet time to rest in it, absorb its beauty, and then I hope to write more about it.

  2. How fortunate you are, Monika, to be able to be and rest with what sounds like an amazing read.

    I’ve always enjoyed Murakami’s words and wisdom.
