Read: Zen Ties

Today is Ocean Day in Japan. 
A celebration of their relationship with the sea. 
This is the collection we bring home
from the library to celebrate our relationship with them.

Zentai ~ a Japanese word meaning the whole, or entire.
It inspired the title of the book, Zen Ties.

Our relationships matter. Our families matter.
Our neighbors matter.
Whether they are on our street
or on another continent.

The library ties us to the world.
And allows us to celebrate neighbors that inspire.

xoxo Michele

I would also recommend the movie Ponyo also directed by Miyazaki which would tie in beautifully with Ocean Day.
