Life in A Day 20160820 "Beyond the Summer".

Saturday, August 20, 2016.

Cloud nine sometimes seems like some very lofty mountains. I often wonder, though, where I can find such high mountains. It's fun to imagine a scene so different from what we always see when we're not there.

Soon, the sudden evening rain blows in, and the afternoon temperature begins to fall. Then it stops suddenly, and the dreadfully close atmosphere of a sunburnt road fills the air. The higurashi (Tanna japonensis, or evening cicada) makes the sound of evening outside the window. I remember the murmur of the brook on a mountain by the veranda of the Japanese restaurant that my grandmother took me to in my childhood.

I feel like people are more peaceful than usual in summer evenings because they feel free.
