Ichi-go ichi-e

一期一会 ichi-go ichi-e : A Japanese idiom which is most often translated as for this time only and which serves as a reminder that, whether we meet someone often or only once, we will never again encounter them, nor ourselves, as they are in that moment. Every encounter, no matter how mundane, is unique.

Time spent with others is precious, for no moment can ever be repeated.
