"Ichigo Ichie" is a Japanese four-character idiom (Yojijukugo) that translates to "one time, one meeting" or "once in a lifetime." The phrase embodies the cultural concept of treasuring every encounter, as it may not recur. Rooted in Zen Buddhism and the tradition of the Japanese tea ceremony, it emphasizes mindfulness and the beauty of each moment.

Meadowlands by Louise Gluck | Indigo Chapters
In an astonishing book-length sequence, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Louise Gluck interweaves the dissolution of a contemporary marriage with the story of The Odyssey. Here is Penelope stubbornly weaving, elevating the act of waiting into an act of will; here, too, is a worldly Circe, a divided Odysseus, and a shrewd adolescent Telemachus. Through these classical figures, Meadowlands explores such timeless themes as the endless negotiation of family life, the cruelty that intimacy enables, and the frustrating trivia of the everyday. Gluck discovers in contemporary life the same quandary that lies at the heart of The Odyssey: the "unanswerable/affliction of the human heart: how to divide/the world's beauty into acceptable/and unacceptable loves." | Meadowlands by Louise Gluck | Indigo Chapte
