Turkey and My Theme

Why would she be so ordinary while the world is filled with infinite things? It might be because she ate turkey every year for last 250 years, even without putting herself in a shoe of turkey once. Of course I do not know how I can precisely put myself in a turkey’s shoe, but at least I know what could happen to a turkey could easily happen to myself. She might have spent a tremendous amount of energy to be ordinary and silently have killed many things. Maybe I should have lowered my flag way earlier and lived earnestly like her. Also she probably could handle various things better than I could.

世界には無限に物事が溢れているのに、なぜ彼女はあんなに平凡なのだろう?それは過去250年間彼女は感謝祭に欠かさず七面鳥を食べ続けてきたからかもしれない、それも七面鳥の立場に一度も立つことなくだ。僕にもどうやったら正確に七面鳥の立場に立てるのかはわからないけど、僕は少なくとも、七面鳥に起こりえることは、僕の身に起こってもおかしくないということを知っている。彼女は平凡になるために莫大なエネルギーを使い、平凡になるためにたくさんの物事を黙殺してきたのかもしれない。もしかしたら僕も彼女のようにすごくマジメに、さっさと旗を降ろして生きるべきだったのかもしれない。それにきっと彼女はいろんなことを僕よりも上手くやることができるだろう。

But I think like this.

だけど僕はこう思う。

I have to release my soul from: the curse of school training, repetitive everyday, simplified thoughts, generalized aspects and standardized themes.

僕は学校教育の呪いから、反復する毎日から、単純化されてしまった思考から、一般化されてしまった見地から、画一化されてしまったテーマから、僕自身の魂を解放してやらなければいけない。

That is my theme.

それが僕のテーゼだ。

  1. Everyone has to pick their battles. I dont think anything is as ordinary as it seems. I am glad you have not lowered your flag. This reminds me a little of that philosopher that was trying to get rid of concepts burried deep in his brain so he created an image of jesus that was way different and had snakes for hair.
