     Arf!"  

     an exclamation came; sharp it wasn’t but equally surprised. 

     Cheeks reside anew when buried within ruffled fleece, canine fur nestling ‘neath palms now embracing the calmed posture of the lupine. Blinking optics glance unto one whose rather eased and comfortable settling rests just upon her cranium— it positively felt as if she were a pillow clutched by another. Grasping for softer textures, to ease away troubles or woe, or it was merely apart of his sleeping habits. One path or another, reveries fallen through palms gloved or unclothed.  

     Amaterasu had been surprisingly used to this rather gracious act.

"The world and humanity turn in strange ways."

Yet her smile, her joy is as infectious as it was in the days of old when he graced the Heavens. The fallen star could not resist returning it with honest serenity.

"Some would choose to ignore such, yet there is no harm in indulgence. Especially for one so close to nature as yourself, faith and love would do you well would it not?"

      None at all.

      There lay a single hand drumming against her chest, ceasing in motion and sweeping lone hairs away.Where mortals still rose and adored the very soil they stood upon, the wood they used and waters to flow.

      she was glad it wasn’t just a blinded vision.

      I do, it is a truth I cannot hide. It is those whom do wish to acknowledge it that gives off a pleasantly warm emotion.

Mention celebration and Kasugami is there in the blink of an eye.

"Mother~ Let’s have as much fun as we can!"

      Ah—! Kasugami. 

    The most ideal person to celebrate with, of course.  

     We really must and not waste these spring days.

"How surprising that the festivities will reach so far."

The ages he’d observed had so often shown him otherwise, the land was not what it once was to humanity.

"Have you taken to partaking in such these days, Amaterasu?"

      “Surprising maybe, but it is a comforting thing.

       An offered smile does not falter, nor does her optimism. Both had witnessed much through the ages pass; mortals were quite the epitome of a surprise. Happily I have done, for who could waste a time to celebrate?

       A day devoted to the honour of the earth? You must come to one of the matsuri festivals— teeming and brimming with celebration, yet respectful throughout."

the thought was always a positive one. 

Ecological thinking and feeling is very great. But there is a tendency towards utilitarian thinking—-this tree should be protected as it produces oxygen, we need it —it makes a healthy watershed etc.. Shinto thinking is that the tree should be protected because it is alive—it is sacred.
