In the morning today, I had a course to renew my driver’s license.
As soon as I arrived at the office, I went to the training center for the 9:30am class. I arrived at the venue at 9:28 a.m. (just in time is my speciality), and as soon as I was given a numbered ticket for my seat, I was astonished!
The person who appears to be a training instructor approached me with a jerk, and as soon as he did, I let out a surprised cry of “Oh”. The guy who looked like an instructor said something stupid and got to the instructor’s seat and started the lecture with a microphone in his hand.
The instructor was a classmate of mine from my high school and we were pretty good friends. I knew that he had worked for the prefectural police after graduating from high school, but I never thought that we would meet again in such a way… I felt something strange strongly.
As I remembered in this blog a long time ago, I bumped into a classmate of mine at a movie theater in Osaka who had been sharing a seat with me for six years, and it made me realize how big and small the world really is.
I can’t help but say that it’s a wonder that we came to Osaka from the Oki Islands in the Sea of Japan and bumped into each other. Is that what karma is all about?
Today, I was made to feel that I should cherish encounters and fate as much as possible.
