今、美しきもの

Buddha quote

 

My grandmother is 96 years old now. She was only 28 years old when her first husband was killed at the WWII. She remarried 3 years later. It has been 68 years since they parted, but she talks about him as if she sees him.  Very gently and sensitively she brought out two amulets smeared with his blood from the back of the drawer. Strong or even persistent sense of caring and affection towards him.  Buddha's quote says it all.

僕のおばあちゃんは実に現在96歳。戦争で最初の旦那をなくしたときは28歳。そして、戦後3年目で再婚。死に別れて68年。それでもふつふつと鮮明によみがえる、彼の面影。彼の血がついた2つのお守りをそっと引き出しの奥から出す祖母。その想いの強さ、執念、そして深さ。「関係」が簡単に作られ取り替えられる時代に改めて、このブッタの言葉の真意にそった生き方をしたい。
