Hello. I am Japan, Land of the Rising Sun. On the weekend I enjoy eating whole pickles and watching TV. On week days I enjoy eating whole pickles and watching TV. For some reason, the editor told me to include that.
I write today because I am a country with a long and rich history, and therefore I have much experience. Please, read ahead and consider my words a warning. Regret is a terrible demon.
- Never chase your dreams. A voice may tell you to be ambitious and achieve the utmost you possible can. Do not listen to it. Glory is not always worth the hurt.
- Give up at the right time. Giving up at the wrong time will lead to an unnecessary amount of pain. Know your limits. Spare yourself.
- Avoid doing the unexpected. People may not react well. Circumstances may not end in your favor. A miscalculated risk is a deadly one.
There. I understand that my advice was terse, but brevity is an art. In saying little, we say so much. Such is the nature of haiku:
I wake up hollow
so I fill myself with salt
on Fuji it snows
Until next time.
