Inverted Mountains






I suddenly recalled my father's back. It had extreme curvature, with protruding bones on the emaciated frame, creating a bizarre spectacle where fragility and greatness intertwined. The man who had a deep admiration for mountains, to the extent of naming me "Gaku" (meaning mountain), seemed to have fulfilled his longing, becoming a part of the mountain range just before death.
It might have been an indication of finally digesting the death of a few years ago, and I remember feeling excited, sensing a change that allowed me to feel a mood where a genuine mourning could be expressed. While searching for a way to appreciate the passage of time in mourning, I arrived at the act of 'descending the mountain.'"
