Everyone is always in transit and a great metaphor for life is that we can only ever trust in the constant flux of change. Forget about the serenity of temples, impermanence is ever-present in JR stations, subway stations and airports. There is something magnetic about these places because as you flow through there, you are forming into someone new, literally moving away from the old and outdated version of yourself and evolving into a different temporal and physical state. Although this man looked extremely tired. Many Japanese people seem to work really long and punishing hours and never complain about it. I can’t make up my mind if that’s admirable or crazy.
