A Sense of Appreciation

While watching a NHK documentary, I was touched by a phrase – under the plank lies a watery grave which is translated from Japanese: Itako ichimai jigoku. It is beautiful yet sad and true at the same time. A lady introduced this phrase in appreciation to the fishermen who risked their lives to bring in the seafood.

I am glad to be reminded to bring back that sense of appreciation and not take things for granted. I love seafood and am happy that it will be savoured with an additional depth of gratitude.
