NICE のお話し

たとえば、しばらく前の「おたく」が、ちかごろの「オタク」と意味合いが
異なるように、言葉の意味が、時代とともに変化するということがあります。

それは、日本語にばかりに、いえることではありません。

英語の単語にも、そんなことがあるんです。

例をあげるなら〈NICE〉くん。かれの人生は、波乱万丈そのものでした。

Going to his/her end in the mornig and ...

All sorts of houses of gentry or of poor are placed in an orderly
on the streets of the great town (KYOTO), looking as if they had
been there all through the time.
But when some one give them a good look with enough care to see
if that is fact, it becomes clear that only a very small number of
them are still in existence in the same way as they were in days
gone by.
Some were burned down last year, and new ones were set up
current year, or some great houses have given their places to
smaller ones. Quite the same is true of these living in them.
Although the general view of the place is almost the same as
it was, and numbers of persons are still seen living there
only one or two of every twenty or thirty are these whom
you saw there years back.
Going to his/her end in the mornig and coming into being at the
nightfall. They are all as uncertain as the feeble balls of air
formed on the water.

I have no idea of where a person comes from and ...

where he/she goes when dead, and also iI have no idea for whom
he/she takes so much of his/her habitat and how he/she makes
it pleasing to the eye when his/her existence may come to an end
at any time.
The keeper and his/her house are equally uncertain as if they
were dew on a flower coming out early in the morning. The dew
may first come down from the pavillon (morning glory) still open,
or the flower itself may quickly go dead with dew still on it in
the morning sun, but the dew themselves will never keep by the
end of the day.

It seems like you are tired.
I see, next one is in preparation. Do not miss it.

Quite tha same may be said of every persons and their
living places on the earth.
