It is funny to teach kids to watching darkness, seldom kids like dark colour, their bright eyes
are always chasing bright colours, teachers in kindergardens knows which colours they like
most.My little girl even dare not go to toilet in night if there is no lights in it.
I did not remember I have much memory of dark color in my life, in China, it is not lucky
colour, we try to avoid it everywhere, when we see a bird is dark, people even fly it away ,
it is sad dark could lead sth bad, some saying and doing are not scientifical actually.
When I first time went to Japan, I was shocked by so many dark colors in life, staff uniform
is dark, students uniform is dark, even skirts for ladies are dark, and dark necklace, dark
handbag,dark is pretty here, but strange thing,they did not like to keep dark hair, most
dying hairs with different color as brown etc.
Indeed, Japan is a very quietly country, no matter where to go ,or to see or to meet, they like
speak lightly, and keep accodence together with mass. I can not imagine if they colored there
and there with so many brightly spots,how can keep accodence anyway?
Dark is the nature colour mostly, and dark is better for everyone if use it for mass.
In Japan, some toilet even colored in dark, seems so silently, keep provacy strictly. I can not
imagine if a pink toilet is facility for people in a football playground, what kinds of feelings
would lead out ?
Crows are popular somewhere, sometime, I get used to their voice in dawn everyday and
exclaimed for their smart when I saw one crow threw River Snails from high sky, get them
crashed to eat inside, at that instant point, black color of its feather is so attactive and agile.
From when, from where,I began to enjoy black, I can not count it, but definitly, I like back
crows, it is like a Chinese saying--Love for a person, even extends to love the cowns on his
roof, or like English saying---Love me, love my dog.I love cown also love its black, is it a
If regarding darkness, such sentences shows not enough totally.
As we know, Japan has more than 50 nuclare stations,ecletrition power is really powerful
everywhere, elevator is runing even no body is there, air-conditioner make salary man
need put on a coat in office, and lights in shops are always as strongly as sun in midnight,
why we need so much lights I doubt, why we need so much power in life? I could choose
turn my lights dimly in night, save my machine is unnesseray, I can not change to sociaty
for going up to the next steps, POWER, always need more.
Last summer when i visit a city in countryside, I am amazing that the city turn off all lights
of road lamp, when friend fetch me in night after train, he felt sorry for the darkness outside,
my big daughter went to visit that city first time, she could see nothing from the windows of
the car, she told , there are a lot of graves outside she guessed. In darkness, she did not
know what is it truly, but absolutly, not graves, it is an construction city with station of bullat
trains, beginning in development. I had good sleep in that city, no artificial lights strongly
disturb me, what a tight sleep I got.
I decided to set up a home there, although my friend feel so sorry about its poor in GDP,
he could not understand why I choose such place to settle down a home, for primitives, I
answered. How much primitives I could get in the modern sociaty and how long we could
go with the primitive in the future, no one knows, big daughter asked me why choose
countryside and give up big city, that is my choice, she never understand that I need put
on curtains and check on light leak day by day, and my long time of watching darkness as
my eyes need take rest this way, I admire life in nature, in darkness, they spend nights
If I have wings, sure I will fly to somewhere no lights in nights, hold the darkness in my
body as long as daylights coming...
