[ARCHIVE] Fox's Words: The Little Prince and Temari | Nishiogikubo Temaricious


"If you want a friend, tame me."

If you want a friend, tame me

``But what should I do?'' said the little prince.

'What must I do, to tame you?' asked the little prince.

``Patience is important,'' replied the fox.

``At first, you sit a little far away from me in the grass like this. I look at you from the side every now and then. You don't say anything. That's because words are a source of misunderstanding. Yes, as each day passes, you will come closer and closer to me and sit down.

'You must be very patient,' replied the fox.

'First you will sit down at a little distance from me like that in the grass. I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings. But you will sit a little closer to me, every day…”

-"The Little Prince"

Temalicious and Temari/The Little Prince and the Fox

I went to see the play because a former colleague of mine played the lead role of The Little Prince. I was inspired by a lot of things in the theater, which I hadn't been to in a long time.

You can't see the glow you get when you're doing what you love. It was very sparkly. It's almost dazzling. I don't need anyone's forgiveness to move forward on my own path, and I'm the one who can't forgive myself because I can't see my own sparkle.

Well, the play was great, but I re-read The Little Prince after a long time. I can't get the fox's words out of my head.

I was intrigued by the word ``tame'' and looked it up, but it turns out that it is a completely different story than ``taming,'' which is a simple master-slave relationship.

Emphasize the process of taking time to build and spend time building relationships of trust without using words that will avoid misunderstandings. The amount of time you spend will change your thoughts. Being friends with a fox means being friends, but I think this also applies to a wonderful partner, as well as to yourself and what you like.

If you replace it with Temaricious (lol), the same may be true of my relationship with Temari. There was a time when I was always calculatingly thinking about whether I liked someone or not. Is it because you actually spent time and money learning?

However, I have finally come to understand that Temari is not like that. I guess they are getting closer and closer and finally they can sit close to each other! I'm smiling while making the temari, probably because of the time it took. As long as you have Temari by your side, that's all you need. Yes, even important people are by my side, thank you! Doesn't its presence make you smile? !

Why not spend some time making Temari together?

I'm going to tame Temari!

You will realize that you will become the only one in the world.

Finally, thank you, my little prince, Emmy!
