As we approach the springtime in the northern hemisphere

When you encounter a new idea, the influence is often brutal. It takes possession of your whole system, and violent reactions sometimes follow. You're greatly agitated, and you think about the idea the whole time.

Gradually, the novelty is lost, and the idea is incorporated into you. The explicit encounter turns into implicit knowledge. The idea becomes part of you, and you need not think about it all the time. More often than not, you forget the idea itself.

As we approach the springtime in the northern hemisphere, I sometimes think if we should not regain the initial agitation from time to time. The excitement as you discover a new idea, which changes your life, and burns your heart. Although such a reaction is often short-lived, it is one of the primes of our life, and it is well to remember. Spring is a fit season for the resurgence of young and bold in spirit.

Dear Dr.Mogi-sensei,

I had forgotten my initial passion for writing the unique thesis before reading your post. (I am a MA student.)
Your post gave me energy to try hard for my thesis with young and bold spirit once again.
Thank you very much.

Thank you for your reference! While you say you can't write like me, I can't write like you. We are both different living human beings trying to interact and communicate somehow, I think. I very much enjoy your comments which gives me a good sense of your world of warmth and tenderness and hope you continue writing.

In a book, I like coming across a new idea which agitated me greatly. The new ideas incorporated into me, and have became a part of my thought as important base.
So I can think many authors of these books, like you, are my mother or my father who bring me up.
I wish we can get a new bright spirit in this spring.
And I wish also coming across you actually by accident at somewhere.

Spring seems to be an affirmation that life is a constant and ever renewal of perception. The danger maybe not to be profoundly grateful by failing to constantly renew one’s own perception of this the wonderment of life.
