During the unusual muggy days continuing
here in Japan, let me send you cool wind from the sky: it is on the 60th
observation floor of the Harukas building in Osaka. For a moment, you can feel yourself soaring
into the sky, getting away from the noise of the big city.
These photos were taken when I went to the Harukas building for some erands.
One day in May, I walked around the Nara Park. Many tourists visit this ancient Nara to enjoy the lots of temples, buildings and atmosphere. Some local people sitting by the Sarusawa pond in the Park, and painting the image of the day is a familiar sight there.
This is one of the painters I meet and speak sometimes at the same spot. His painting is a bit special, which is called pointillism with black ink. His one set of 3 paper painting work is going to complete soon in October. It took him 2 years. He said with smile.
Thank you for allowing me to take your art! I look forward to seeing you by the pond in the Park again.
Here, life is passing very slowly...I like it. お天気の良い日に出かけると、同じ場所でよく出会う絵かきさん。お会いする度に絵が出来上がっていきます。 コツコツと月日をかけて描く姿に心うたれます。写真も快く撮らせてくださいます。 Tomoko
Our sons and a daughter-in-law sent me this beautiful flowers on Mother's day.
This is not a composite photo....yes, the reflection on the lid of my piano.
Finding the beautiful reflection on the lid, I tried to take the device of piano too.
I am so happy to find that there are so many beauties in my room.
Driving Miss Daisy, I watched countless
times 20 years ago is unforgettable film.
The main players are Miss Daisy, 72, a
proud old wealthy Southern lady, and her chauffeur Hoke, he is a black man.
The story explores their relationship over 25 years. No special event happens; the days just
pass quietly. Over the years, they are going to realize
that their existence is important.The story looks at humans getting old and
dying, mentions racism, and touches my heart with their exquisite words. I started reading the dialog of the film 5 monthes ago. With my English teacher's great help, the reading is going to the end soon. It was fun but very difficult!!!
