"Every earthling I know is busy and doesn't have enough time to look at the sky."

-After Missing the Boat, I Got Off the Train (written by Lee Hwa-yeol)

 

How often did you look at the sky over the last week? Were you too busy to notice, like in the quote? Did you choose smartphone screens instead of the sky?

Nowadays, many people lead incredibly busy lives. They don't have time to raise their heads and  see skies splashed with cotton white clouds. It is sad to me.

The word "person" is "anthropos " in Greek. It means 'the animal can look upward and walk at the same time.' On the contrary, people these days are busy walking and looking at small screens in their hands. From behind, people appear to be saying "I am busy and I don't have enough time." It makes me sad. It looks like they are constrained by time.

Of course, I am NOT saying that you should not spend your days busy to achieve your own goal. We just need some personal time to think, “Who am I? What things do I want to achieve? What do I want out of life?”

Let's have a little more time. Take a deep breath and look at the unlimited expanse of the sky. It would be a great encouragement to you.
