When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about. - Haruki Murakami
Haruki Murakami is a contemporary Japanese writer whose works have been on the best seller list in Japan. Born in 1949 in Kyoto Japan, he writes both fiction and non-fiction and is often criticized as un-Japanese and influenced by Western writers.
What kind of storms is he talking about? No, not storms like hurricanes, blizzards or dust storms, but real life storms that have the potential to be life changing events. I expect that many of you can relate.
Considering that I am a fan of The Walking Dead, there are so many ways I could go with this, but I am choosing to see it in a positive light.
I think what Murakami is saying is that no matter how rough the storm that we pass through, the potential is there for us to emerge stronger or wiser or more compassionate and that surviving the storm can change our outlook and perspective.
What do you think? How would you interpret this?
