From the translator’s journal ~Memory~

Listened to “The Way We Were” of
Barbra Streisand after a long time.
Beautiful song.

While listening
thought the days will come
when I won’t be able to remember.

Remembering might be
a privilege of youth,
the youth of memory.

Blessed with events to remember、
with memories to remember,
where to go I wonder.

When I would lose my memory,
I would rely on others,
their loving care and
the hands of the Great Being.

Where would be my soul then?
Where would then she wander?
