Turning Japanese is a euphemism. For masturbation. Or so some claimed when the The Vapors released a song with the same title, although the band were quick to deny such. Apparently the unfounded speculation revolved around the appearance of a man's eyes at the climax of the act.
Prince William is in Japan at the moment.
Today he was treated to "harrowing stories" of the tsunami which struck on 11/3/11. Wills commented that :
"like 9/11, everyone remembered where they were when they saw the images of the tsunami.
"It remains with you forever. You remember where you were. It must have been unbelievably terrifying for you and all the others," he said. (BBC News)
911 crops up everywhere, it's difficult to escape from.
I do recall the events of that day. I was employed in an office and my "working partner" had, in the past, been a great disciple of the occult. He was deeply intimate with the tarot and Crowley. He was well versed on magickal rituals and their provenance, although I am sworn to secrecy as to exactly why. Let's just say though, he was not a yarn-winder. When the TV images were displayed he became animated. He could not stop watching the news reports, over and over, all day long. I asked him why it was so significant, he replied : "you won't understand, this is the beginning". I think I am beginning to understand now.
Often we hear the principle of "always remembering" being applied to other incidents, for example the assassination of JFK on 22/11, John Lennon, or William's mother. One might consider though, that we are never "allowed" to escape from them, indeed that we are blinkered.
