The Source of the Sun


FOR 10 YEARS DID I LIVE HERE, IN THESE SHAKY ISLES, THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN. If it wasn't for my panic attacks, I would probably be living there still.

THE QUINTESSENTIAL Japanese greeting, 「こは」 (kon-nichi wa) effectively means: "As for today, well..." This is very much as a fill-in-the-dots language, a language of hints and absences.

おはようござ! (Ohayou gozaimasu!) .......... Good morning! (polite)
おはよう! (Ohayou!) .......... Good morning! (casual)
おは! (Oha!) ..........Good morning! (childish)
