It is the season of year-end parties. Every week, for one reason or another, I also has a drink with someone. Each time he calls it a year-end party. I wonder how many times I will forget the year this year.

Thinking about it, a year-end party is probably a Shinto ritual. It is a way to purify the various injuries that have accumulated this year by washing away the memories of this year with sake. The memories of this year are washed away, and the new year is literally welcomed with a clean slate.

If one lives, many things happen. Even this past year, there were many things that happened. We can live by forgetting. How many times do we have to forget before we can live? I can finally count on my fingers this year.
