Godot. Guffman. Superman. The Man.

Hoping for fall – and cooler weather – to come soon.

一日三秋
ichi.jitsu.san.shuu

Literally: one – day – three – autumn(s)

Alternately: A single day seems like three years. Each moment seems to drag on. Waiting impatiently.

Notes: The first half can be pronounced ichi.jitsu. The latter half can be written 千秋 (sen.shuu; “one thousand autumns”). The whole phrase can be followed by ~の思い (~no omoi; “the feeling of ~”).

My favorite time of year.

Oh, just image-search “autumn.” It’s beautiful.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
