Global Members Club
- Sonar Members Club (SMC) was founded just last year in 2012. SMC is to offer a place for you to speak out as a Global Members Club. It is not for anybody but for people with views on life. Your views on things that enrich our lives. Such as art, music, literature, sports, travelling. And history, Philosophy …… and business.
- It is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious group. We want to encourage exchanges of views among the members.
- The philosophy in the statements above can be equated to the most famous Tanka anthology in Japan called “Manyo-Shu” which was compiled during 7th and 8th centuries in Japan. It has more than 4,500 Tanka poetries. The Tanka poems in “Manyo Shu” were provided by almost all classes of people in those days, ranging from the Emperors to soldiers and farmers. Once you read them, you will find how these Tanka poems convey the real feeling of life from 1,300 years ago ! However old the Tanka poems might be, we not only still respect them but also quote them and learn from them even today.
- This is something we want to aim at. To leave the proof of life today to the people in distant future just like the poets of “Manyo Shu” did us in 21st century.
- Too big a dream? Yes. But that’s what we want to do.
- Join us!!
