Haibun Monday—Shimo No Koe—First Frost’s Voice

The voice of frost, on a quiet windless night, can be heard when the earth and air whisper:shin shin. Sometimes I sit at our local temple and listen to this voice. Also in the bamboo grove we hear the shin shin of frost.

"Who are you?" This is a question Rachel and I like to ask ourselves and others. We realized that we both like to ask questions, so we created this blog. In our interviews, we ask inspiring people questions about their fields of expertise, their personal philosophies, and their views on society. I hope you learn something about yourself or society at large from reading these interviews.-Tiffany
