Haruki Murakami and Shingo Nakamura- Side Trips

‘I believe you’re entering a phase

of your life in which many different things

will occur. The disappearance of your cat is only

the beginning.’ Good things or bad things? ‘Good things and

bad things. Bad things that seem good at first, and good things that seem

bad at first.’ That sounds very general. Don’t you have any more concrete information?

‘Yes, I suppose what I am saying does sound very general, but after all when one

is speaking of the essence of things one can only speak in generalities.

Concrete things certainly do command attention, but they are

little more than trivia. Side trips. The more one tries to see

into the future, the more generalized things become.’
