NORTHERN IRELAND IMAGES: THE WIND HAS ITS REASONS

“For example, the wind has its reasons. We just don’t notice as we go about our lives. But then, at some point, we are made to notice. The wind envelops you with a certain purpose in mind, and it rocks you. The wind knows everything that’s inside you. And not just the wind. Everything, including a stone. They all know us very well. From top to bottom. It only occurs to us at certain times. And all we can do is go with those things. As we take them in, we survive, and deepen.”
Haruki Murakami, Hear the Wind Sing

HARAJUKU IMAGES: RUNNING AWAY FROM SOMETHING

“From my own experience, when someone is trying very hard to get something, they don’t. And when they’re running away from something as hard as they can, it usually catches up with them. I’m generalizing, of course.” ― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

SHIBUYA IMAGES: I’M FREE, I THINK

“I’m free, I think. I shut my eyes and think hard and deep about how free I am, but I can’t really understand what it means. All I know is I’m totally alone. All alone in an unfamiliar place, like some solitary explorer who’s lost his compass and his map. Is this what it means to be free? I don’t know, and I give up thinking about it.” ― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

SHINJUKU IMAGES: AMBIGUOUS DREAM

“Time weighs down on you like an old, ambiguous dream. You keep on moving, trying to sleep through it. But even if you go to the ends of the earth, you won’t be able to escape it. Still, you have to go there- to the edge of the world. There’s something you can’t do unless you get there.” ― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
