出会い - an encounter

"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit"
~ Albert Schweitzer

Actually the pictures and the quote doesn't have any connection whatsoever, i just feel like uploading recent photographs that i took... so i put it together in this post ^-^

Anyway.. recently i've got to think about the word "出会い" (deai) in english it means "an encounter". I like how merriam-webster define 'encounter' as,
-to meet especially by chance
-a particular kind of meeting or experience with another person

for some reasons, i found this word beautiful. i mean, try to see the real meaning of this word, the experience behind it...
i feel like i have encountered lots of people in my 23 years of life, and some of them truly affecting my life. their very existence shape me as a person i am today. that's why i feel grateful to meet those people in my life, it really is a blessing for me. i feel like i've learn a lot n experience a lot through my encounter with them. it seems that, the word encounter have a big definition after all.

i wonder have u ever think about simple things like an encounter? feel grateful for a little think that unexpectedly have major impact in your life. now each day i try to see those little things n be grateful for it.
