Nana-Korobi, Ya-Oki

Well, this has been a lame month for Talk Wordy to Me. Sorry. I let myself get into a lazy funk after a big disappointment earlier in June, and I haven't done much of anything all month. (Thus my two Words of Others this month were songs I'd been trying to draw inspiration from.) Instead of wallowing in all that any more, I'm just going back to a favorite Japanese proverb (actually, the only Japanese proverb I know): Nana-Korobi, Ya-Oki, which means, "Fall down seven times, get up eight." (I don't think that translation is quite literal, but it captures the meaning the best I have seen.)

Posts soon.
