"Shichome Canteen" (拾丁目食堂)
"Shichome Canteen" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel, or in this case flashing neon paw prints at the end of the road. Whatever sign you thought you needed this is it. For centuries the Maneki-neko, also known as the Beckoning Cat, has enticed wandering spectators to the right entrance. Make no mistake there is nothing wrong with wanting to explore other possibilities. In fact, Confucian philosopher Mencius (孟子), would advise to not limit your options. Simply take a course of action, just start, and you can adjust as you go. And isn’t that what life is all about? Trial and error, you may get lost, take the wrong turn, or the long way but ultimately all roads lead somewhere. As long as you keep moving eventually, you’ll find the canteen at the end of the road. Let’s just hope they don’t run out of noodles! The question is, will you follow the mysterious cat’s advice or keep roaming around aimlessly?
