is the great 
miracle cure. 
Loving ourselves 
works miracles 
in our lives. "

" So much has been said 
and sung of 
beautiful young girls, 
why doesn't somebody 
wake up 
to the beauty 
of old women? "

Rashomon Effect Ghost Series

A    L    O    H    A  !
A butterfly fluttered its wings 
in a wind thick 
with the smell of seaweed. 
His dry lips
 felt the touch of 
the butterfly 
for the briefest instant,
the wisp of wing dust 
still shone 
on his lips 
later.   ” 

 “People used to say 
that on moonless nights
 Her Ladyship's broad-skirted scarlet trousers 
would glide eerily 
along the outdoor corridor,
 never touching the floor.” 

 Ryūnosuke Akutagawa

“Directly beneath 
the Lotus Pond of Paradise 
lay the lower depths of Hell, 
and as He peered 
through the crystalline waters, 
He could see the 
River of Three Crossings 
and the Mountain of Needles 
as clearly as if 
He were viewing 
pictures in a peep-box.” 

Ryūnosuke Akutagawa 

" Priest:  I don't want to hear it.
 No more horror stories.

Commoner: They are common stories
 these days.
 I even heard that the demon 
living here in Rashômon 
fled in fear of
 the ferocity of man. "

Film RASHOMON [1950]

" The classic Kurosawa film 
deals with the nature of truth... 
how the same events
 can be viewed in completely
 different ways by different 
people with different 
backgrounds, expectations, 
and experiences. 
We Call it 
the Rashomon Effect. "
