( August 5, 2016) At Casa de Paz
Awakin Circle in Oakland, Hiromi
shared a story about her grandma, who was 83. When Hiromi visited her grandma some years ago, her grandma took her to the garden and pointed to the trees, said, "You planted those trees. Do you remember?" Hiromi didn't remember. She had been away from her hometown for years, studying and traveling to places afar. She had forgotten that she had planted those trees when she was a child. Her grandma continued, "When I die, you do not need to remember me. Remember these trees that you've planted."
