Green House Grown

There was some lecture session I have attended tonight and a presentor commented about living in Japan with a very fresh and keen metaphor.

"Working in Tokyo is like concealed with a warm shield, just like living in a green house."

Once you are out of this country and see the dynamism of the world, you will see how protected this society is, and how comfortable the place is. I guess the line has two meanings. The surface tone is the satisfaction and the happiness with the comfort. Another layer is the alert to such.

If this place is indeed a green house, am I really aware how freezing and windy the outside the green house is? Not really. Am I curious how outside is? Yes. Am I in a way reluctant to find it out? Yes and No. Will I be content with the comfort? Yes in daily life but maybe not in a medium & a long term.

So, what is out there outside our green house? Am I going to see that or keep holding the warm shield of plastic surrounding me?
