Hey, baby. Cheer up!

a middle-age man who passed on the road



Masayo Tanaka is a housewife who used to go to the exercise of a theater company. While she was walking with her head down frustrated not only with her performance but also with interpersonal relationships, a stranger on a bicycle called out when passing her. She was reminiscent of it because his sudden voice revived her. The man might have been depressed in reality. There was such an encounter with a stranger.  From "An Important Word I Met" edited by Shinshu Otani school Tokyo parish.
