From the translator’s journal ~Without inconvenience~

My rosary bracelet was broken.
Found a new one
on the internet and purchased it
as it was not expensive.

My wrist watch didn’t move.
Took it to the repair shop
expecting it wouldn’t cost a lot.

Asked a professional
to check my air conditioner
as it was not expensive.

I thought I live not
the luxurious life.
But to live without inconvenience,
it IS a luxurious life!

There should be an alternative
to leave things as they are
and live without them,
when they are broken.

Is it just an attachment to things?
Should I be freed from the attachment_
I feel guilty for living without inconvenience…

Grateful for my circumstances.
