Silent Gardens and Web 2.0

Zuuki Yoshida

Sometimes we are overrun with inquiries but also with spam and hacking attempts. But it is still a real pleasure to have a Web 2.0 website, where people can communicate with us but this means also a lot of work.

But there are good, even excellent moments. Last night we encountered a very interesting man – YUUKI YOSHIDA.

Yuuki Yoshida sent us a common question:
What is a proper one short sentence for expressing what BAHALANA means? Thank you.

We answered:
“Bahala na” is described in “Basic Tagalog” as a Filipino philosophy, translated approximately as “Happen what may!” or “Whatever will be, will be?”
Filipinos are fatalists. If they can’t resolve a problem or change a situation, they wait that the problem resolves itself or that the situation changes.

And then it started:
Yuuki Yoshida sent us information about himself. 
Yoshida-san is a Japanese citizen living in the Philippines.
As a young, handicapped boy of 11 years of age he lived in Hiroshima, when the bomb hit his hometown.
Now  Yoshida-san is over 80 years old. He has his own website and is sharing his life’s experiences. Imagine, you’re over 80 years old and maintain your website!

Here it is:

[Editor’s cooment:] How I wish to be as fit, when I will reach 80+ years. I am so happy having met Yoshida-san on the Internet. My recommendation: Live with your
eyes, your ears and your mind open. You’ll meet people that bring much more than
only words to you.
