Throw beans to chase away devils
Let luck of warmth come
This is beautiful, Ashi. Do you have in Japan a tradition to throw beans to chase away devils?
By the way, I am back from the mountains 🙂
Yes, we do. Feb. 3 falls on “setsuben” (seasonal division – winter’s gone, spring’s come) when people throw roasted soy beans to chase away devils and invite in good lucks as go out to start working on farms. After the throwing they collect the beans and eat the same number of beans as his/her years of age, which would be too much for me. 🙂
I see you are back from the mountain.
High on the mountain
She could touch the sun and smiled
Full of love in heart
