Yesterday, waiting outside the chess playing hall at a chess tournament, I looked outside of the window and thought: “Fall was not bad and it’s a nice day outside”. When Abe showed up after finishing his game, I asked him, “Did you see any birds outside?” I asked him this question because I missed their existences just out of the window until a minute ago.
“Where?” It seemed Abe did not see any birds on his first try.
“…Oh, I found it.”
“Just like chess, if you try and try, you may find something (you are looking for).”
By the way, Abe had a lucky day— he scored 3.5 points out of 4.
Today, I asked him what he did differently in that lucky tournament.
“I thought more,” Abe replied.
