Long time no see….

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry for the hiatus, I’ve been quite busy but that’s no excuse. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On with the blog….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s blog is about a Japanese proverb, which is rather well know, and was taught to me by my grandfather.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I first learned the proverb was Japanese from one of my favorite English Teacher’s at Kushi JH. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The full proverb is: 

 

七転び八起き人生はこれからだ

“Fall seven times, rise eight times, life begins now.”

 

 

 

 

 

or more simply 

 

 

 

 

 

七転び八起き

Fall seven times and stand up eight

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deep, yet straght forward. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So let’s have some fun with it…
