People from all over the world are evolving with Darwin’s Paradox…. Artists, construction workers, teachers, students, healers, entrepreneurs, councillors, and shop-keepers … all journeying together toward the singularity. Look who’s here today:
Honoka Yoshida was in the Historic Higashiyama District of Kyoto, celebrating her birthday as Geisha of the Day, when I met her at the foot of the Sannen-zaka Steps and presented her with her very own copy of Darwin’s Paradox as a birthday present.
“I am 15 now and I just came back from Australia two months ago,” says Honoka, who lived in Australia from Grade 4 till 9. “When I met you it was my birthday and as a celebration I got the opportunity to dress up as a Geisha. I love to dance, I started ballet when I was 4 years old, I went to Christa Cameron School Of Ballet when I was in Australia. I am missing Australia so much and right now I am full of nervousness about new challenges that are about to come, but I take this as an opportunity that can make me stronger. In the future I wish to take the advantages of my experience in Australia and my knowledge of English and the world, to help and tell people around the world who can’t go overseas my experiences and how important it is to take every challenge and go for it.”
I wish Honoka all the best in her travels and in helping others meet their challenges.
