Thought for the day     TM Negi

Now, we are in the middle of autumn leave season. Next Sunday, I am planning
to go to Nasu-Shiobara with my wife to see the mountains in red, yellow and
orange. I am looking forward to enjoy sightseeing there and bathing in
Autumn leaves make us sentimental, but we have to know that trees are ready
to winter by falling their leaves. During winter, trees are ready for spring
to have thick leaves in summer and grow bigger. In other words, trees are
always ready to the next season for their growth. Like trees, I want to be
ready to the next. I hope todayfs meeting will also be another step for my
growth as a better communicator.
