Wonderful Life

Have you ever seen the movie

Wonderful Life

? It

s a Japanese fantasy movie about life after

death, in that you can live forever in the moment of the h

appiest moment of your life. In the

movie, someone said he wants to go back to the moment of his first

flight after he became a

pilot, and someone said the marriage with his wife was the happie

st memory. If you could

choose a day or a time in your life that you want to re

-live, when would it be? I asked some of

Tidings reporters and here

s the answer.

If I could go back to the past, I would want to go back to

the Christmas when I was seven.

When I was young, I used to decorate the Christmas tree with

my family. The year I was seven,

while decorating the tree, my sister and I sang carols, and M

om and Dad were happy. Looking

at the bright lights before going to bed, I was thinking about wh

at kind of Christmas gifts would

be given to me. I can remember that I woke up earlier than

anyone else to open a present and

thought that there really is a Santa. Now, I cannot affo

rd to enjoy Christmas because my

family and I are busy. But we remember the feeling that e

veryone was happy.

If I could go back to the past, I think I would choose to be

an elementary school student again.

Back then, I used to play in the playgrounds with my friend

s almost every day, usually riding

swings and playing our childish game called

The Escape

. I had so much fun that a smile still

spreads across my face whenever I reminiscence about those days.

If there was a so-called

After Life

and I could re-live only one day in my life, I would choos

e

a day I spent in Lombok during a school trip. Blue-green moonlight

shone under the sea as I felt

weightless with only a gentle touch of gravity pulling down on

me. Later, staring at the moon

and the stars at the top of the boat, I found myself liste

ning to diving instructors chit-chatting

and humming in a language I only knew few words of. These mome

nts are what I choose to re-

live for the last time before I vanish to

whatever state about existence lies beyond.

If it were possible to go back to the past, I would definitel

y choose to go back to last year when

I just got into university. Everything was so new to me back the

n and it year when I just got into

university. Everything was so new to me back then and it was fun t

o experience all the new

things. Escaping from the academic pressure, I could drink all ni

ght and get drunk with my

friends and I was so excited to get to know and get along with

different people. It actually

helped me widen my own world as well. It is still fun to

hand out with my friends and to do all

the things I have done so far but still, I will never be able to fo

rget the feelings when I

experienced things for the very first time since I have become

an adult. I appreciate every

moment of the days and I wish could experience the feelings

all over again.
