Meeting with Mr. Clive Williams Nicol.

On a day when a cold rain started to fall, I met with the famed writer Clive Williams Nicol. The severe weather was fitting, as Mr. Nicol is a man who has traveled in wilderness, one trip taking him to the North Pole.

Mr. Nicol is one of these rare people who can combine the fire of passion with the coolness of intelligence. He has written extensively and deeply about nature. It is all about experience, and you need to reflect on your own mind in order to write well in this genre.

Listening to Mr. Nicol is like hearking to an old oak tree. You feel the flow of time embodied in the shape of a man, and you have the desire to attain that maturity when you are old. That becomes your inspired ambition.

Wow, that's neat.
You look slim and mild next to the red gentle ogre.

An old oak tree!he really is!
Beeing long time in nature,he've got more tough and more gentle,
It's a miracle , coexistence of contradictory nature.

I enjoyed your talk session.
It made me think anew that humans are also products of nature and we should not see nature as opposed to us.
Now I am positive that nature and we can somehow live in harmony as Nicole-san do.
I would love to go to the Afan Woodland one day.
Anyway thank you very much for giving me such a meaningful time.
I am looking forward to your next talk session.
(I am sorry if my English sounds funny. Unfortunately, I am not good at English…)

Oh… Nicol-san.
I am truly sorry that I misspelled his name. I correct it here and sincerely apologize.
