My Teddy Bear
I like certain kind of teddy bears.
Very hard to explain... Being cute is the default. There is something a lot more.
I like teddy bears that make me a little bit sad, and that remind me of a philosopher.
This is largely because of "Winny The Phoo", a famous children story I read as a child.
I used to take in clients at my home for counseling/healing sessions. My clients loved this teddy bear. I don't know how many clients wanted to hug this bear... a lot more they hugged me.
People in Japan normally don't hug each other, at all. But I know that they really want to...
Some of them even wanted to take photos of him!
This is one of the very few photos of him I took myself.
