death and birth 

Tomorrow is the 49 day after my mother's death so we're goingto have a memorial service at the temple.
There are many things to be done and it's my first time to prepare for such an event so I'm pretty busy these days.

Moreover, my school's Christmas party falls on the same day.
I took a day off for my mother's memorial service and cancelled my lessons on that day.
But the service should be over in the evening, so I think I can make it to the party.

It's a Christmas party but at the same time it could be my farewell party too.
So I don't want to miss it.

It's gonna be a really busy day tomorrow but I think it'll be a great day.

But I have a little strange feeling about having these two opposite type of events on the same day.
Memorial sevice of my mother's death and celebrating Christmas, which is the day of Jesus's birthday.
Very Japanese style gathering and American style gathering.

Somebody dies and somebody is born.
Somebody leaves this world and someboday comes to this world.
Death and birth seem to be completly different, but I feel there's something in comon.

They both tell us about life.
They both tell us about miracle and mystery of life.

Where do they come from?
Where do they go?

Sadness comes with somebody's death.
Happiness comes with somebody's birth.
They are the opposite feelings but both sacred.

It's going to be a special day tomorrow.
