Diane and Beauty
  
 

 
 

“Though we travel the world

over to find the beautiful,

we must carry it with us

or we find it not.”
 
 
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Kato, did you think it over last night?

Yes, I did, and I came up with the right interpretation.  
 
Oh, did you?  Tell me about it.

Here it is:


 
 

Beauty is within yourself.

Otherwise, you would never find it.
 
You can experience beauty by intuition.
 
 
—Your truly skinny Socrates, Kato

I see…but how did you come up with that?

It was actually quite easy.  I’ve scooped up the essential in Wikipedia:

Ralph Waldo Emerson

(May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882)

He was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet, who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century.
He was seen as a champion of individualism.

Emerson was partly influenced by German philosophy and Biblical criticism.
His views, the basis of Transcendentalism, suggested that God does not have to reveal the truth but that the truth could be intuitively experienced directly from nature.


Transcendentalism

Among the transcendentalists’ core beliefs was the belief in an ideal spirituality that “transcends” the physical and empirical and is realized only through the individual’s intuition, rather than through the doctrines of established religions.

The major figures in the movement were Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, and Amos Bronson Alcott.

The transcendentalists desired to ground their religion and philosophy in transcendental principles: principles not based on, or falsifiable by, sensuous experience, but deriving from the inner spiritual or mental essence of the human.
Immanuel Kant had called “all knowledge transcendental which is concerned not with objects but with our mode of knowing objects.”

I see…the truth could be intuitively experienced directly from nature.

That’s right!  God does not have to reveal the truth.
 

【Himiko’s Monologue】

Wow! What a magnificent intuition!
People need beauty even more than some of the other things that are typically viewed as essential.
Yes, we need food, lodging, and other material resources in order to survive.
But we all have a deep aesthetic need as well, and one that must be met in order to truly live.

Beauty is one thing; romance is another.

Come to think of it, I’ve never met a decent man in my life.
How come I’m always a loner?
I wish I could meet a nice gentleman at the library in my town as Diane met Kato.
Well, they say, there is a way where there is a will.

Have a nice day!
Bye bye …

Hi, I’m June Adames.

I like a leisurely stroll

while listening to nice music

such as “Sous le Ciel de Paris.”

Sous le Ciel de Paris

by Hideshi Kibi(日本人)

You can find some Japanese musicians in Paris.

Fujiko Hemming also likes Édith Piaf

who sings “Sous le ciel de Paris.”

by Édith Piaf

I like Chanson Française (French song).

How about you?

Kato also love Édith Piaf,

but he considers Juliette Greco’s

“Sous le Ciel de Paris” much beter.

Sous le Ciel de Paris

by Juliette Greco

I believe Yves Montand’s “Sous le Ciel de Paris” is the best of all.

by Yves Montand

I love Paris, but Vancouver isn’t bad at all.

To tell you the truth, Vancouver is a paradise to me.

Kato thinks that Vancouver is better than Paris.

灯台下暗し

Here’s a Japanese proverb.

If I translate it literally, it means this:

The lighthouse does not

shine on its base.

It also means this:

The darkest place is

under the candlestick.

I’m pretty sure that your birthplace is a paradise to you.
