行って来ます (itte kimasu) is an interesting way of saying 'goodbye' in Japanese. The implication is, although one is leaving, one will return at some point in the future. And I think that is a good place to leave Takuin.com. To leave, and return.
The first post on this website was called 'Phoenix', published on Friday, December 22, 2006. I wrote:
With all that has recently happened to this organism, it is fitting that the old blog was destroyed. Since everything is a new beginning, every moment, every smile, every word typed through this keyboard, nothing has been lost.
And here I sit, nearly 10 years later, with the same feelings.
After my so-called spiritual awakening on December 1st, 2006, everything changed. It is good to know after a decade, that life still evolves, twisting and morphing, evolving into new and different, perhaps even better, forms.
So perhaps I'll rise once again, like the Phoenix. Or perhaps, I'll fuck off into the sunset.
One last time I will say to all of you:
I love you.
P.S. If anyone wants to keep in touch with me, send an email to Takuin at gmail. It will be nice to hear from any of you.
