I didn´t think something with Iaido could be combined with Jerusalema… Only in Japan…

Really nice and beautifully done…It’s funny how some messages get to people in different parts of the world; without they even knowing.

I haven’t seen one country yet that haven’t dance this song so beautifully. I wonder if they are aware this song is religious in nature.

Here are the English lyrics.
jerusalema lyrics in english
x 2
Jerusalem, my home.
Rescue me,
Join me,
Don’t leave me here!

x 2
My place is not here,
My kingdom is not here,
Rescue me!
Come with me!

Save me, save me, save me,
Don’t leave me here,
Save me, save me, save me,
Don’t leave me here!

My place is not here,
My kingdom is not here,
Rescue me!
Come with me!

Save me, save me, save me,
Don’t leave me here,
Save me, save me, save me,
Don’t leave me here!

I honestly didn´t know it was religious (i know it was every where on the internet for a while). I was looking at other things on youtube and it came as a “suggestion” (I´m an iaidoka so anything with iai is something I probably would look at). And it´s nice when iaido that is sort of a meditativ martial art (we imagine our enemies we never go against a real person). :slight_smile:

Today is Valentines day in some countries but i think the Finnish version of “friendship day”. Im single and middle aged that said my godmother is still alive (very old but still) so I get one card every year from Finland. I think it´s a cute reminder that love is bigger than the one between a couple. Hyvä ystävänpäivä! Have a great friendshipday! :slight_smile:

I just got a message from Viki about end-of -the year “Thank you” gift for volunteering. Has anyone else gotten a message about “yearly gifts”? Or received a gift from Viki? What has been your experience?

Some people have gotten, and others, no. See these links below. . . :blush:

Any news about our annual QC gift already?

Pinch me, I'm dreaming

Thanks @leerla73 for Fumi’s poster, I printed it out to post it in my kitchen :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: , just needed some :two_hearts: today!

I have a health app, but to complete the tasks on the cell phone takes quite some time, I think we are getting more and more dependent on digital gadgets-devices which require data and electricity… in other words “slaves to electronics”… it’s also unhealthy in particular for young children it causes stress and damage to their brains… just read about it, but it’s not new news.

Have a wonderful day :sun_with_face: :sunflower:

I’m doing a screen shot of this, and sending it to fumi’s twitter. As she often says, “do we love darlings?” She will definitely love your response, I am just so glad to be apart of the whole message. :blush: :yellow_heart:

I agree, yup!
