Hitoha Miyamizu Quotes
“Even if words are lost, tradition should be handed down.”
“Musubi is the old way of calling the local guardian God. This world has profound meaning. Tying thread is Musubi. Connecting people is Musubi. The flow of time is Musubi. These are all the God’s power. So the braided cords that we make are the God’s art and represent the flow of time itself. They converge and take shape. They twist, tangle, sometimes unravel, break, then connect again. Musubi – knotting. That is time.”
“I also remember seeing strange dreams when I was a young girl. Although now I’ve forgotten about whose life I was dreaming about. Your mother had the same experience.”
