Translator's blog

From the translator’s journal ~Humanity and kindness~

Since I had my left ankle broken
at a railway station a week ago,
I have been in the hands of
many kind people:

a lady who held me on her lap
until the ambulance arrived;
emergency crews;
bone specialist and the hospital staff;

my sister who took me home
by taxi and the taxi driver;

caretaker of my flat
and my friends
who visit me constantly;

the eye doctor
who sent me eye drops;
acupuncturist, psychiatrist,

Oh, how many people
have helped and supported me
with their kindness
and professional skils!

I have no words
to express my gratitude
to them, but only say
“THANK YOU with all my love!”
