Good luck or bad luck?

It's said we won't see the first sunrise at the New Year's morning because of the winter low pressure in our area but only the minor location facing for the North West Pacific Ocean. I have to complain about it " It's unfair... " but we can't help it any way.
Some of my friends from the East Pacific Ocean area will be great at home town to see the morning sun on the New Year so beautiful.

Good luck and bad luck are always with us. We can't tell it really good or bad until to the end.
I might happen to find something good because of the bad weather during the year end and the new year without sunshine.
Too much expectation would be burden but somehow interesting would be camphor for the depression.

I can find many interesting things being at home during the cold and wet days.
Reading, knitting, cooking, eating, watching and chatting will be special winter habits.
I will always take it easy.

Wishing of New Year's food

Japanese soul food on New Year's Day is said to be full of wish for the new year.
I've learned it "Gochisosan" on the TV program.
For example, black beans are for being active and vivid. Burdocks are for living steady in the deep earth, seaweed kombu would make happy and joyful, sea bream is for celebrating and kinton made from chess nuts and sweet potato symbolizes to make money...something like that.
It has a lot of meaning in the tradition.
Japanese traditional food is really worth to be praised...I'm every proud of it.

Whether weather is...2

It's been snowing since last night consistently.
Viewing outside all is covered with white.
It's better to stay inside warm today.




2013年12月13日金曜日

Whether weather is...

It's just the season here now.

"If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow..."

The song tells when the north wind begins to blow it come to solitude in your mind.
You need a good friend in your heart and realize that you are never alone.

I walked my dog against the cold storm this morning.
I almost gave up farther more steps, especially between the buildings much stronger gust.
My dog also didn't seem to enjoy the bad weather so we rushed and shortcut immediately back home.
Cold stormy weather excludes people away and shut out in the street.
We should keep quiet until the breaks of the dark clouds.

Cyclamen

I've got a vase of Cyclamen.
It's one of the popular winter flowers.
I chose the red one because the color red would give me energy and power.
It starts to snow this morning.
I like to gaze the contrast with the color red and white from the window.
Colorless season needs something colorful vitamin color such as orange, banana and apple color on the table, too.

The dying trees

Seeing the trees dying in winter I thought of the wonders.
They are so patient to wait for the next spring and time to bloom.
Their power gave me magical power even in cold winter days when I was also waiting for warmth back.

But this year, it's different.
I just envy those which die in winter and revive in spring again.
My father used to watch these blossoms every spring when he took a walk.
But he can't see them any more.
He died and never come back.
That's why I feel jealous for the trees.
It doesn't make sense to have such misfortune.
I know well that life time is limited so we can enjoy the precious moment alive.
We can't avoid going to decay.
It's not special to go dying in the nature.
I'd better comfort myself with the natural life.
I just adore things in nature.

Live and let me live
Like trees in winter
Dreaming of the bloom

Nuts for your better health

It's said nuts eaters are healthier than those who don't eat.
Research tells below;
The more often nuts were consumed, the less likely participants were to die of cancer, heart disease and respiratory disease, and not because nut eaters succumbed to other diseases. Their death rate from any cause was lower during the years they were followed.

I wonder nuts are not almighty food but stronger than other fruits.
It's better to take moderate in balance with other nourishment.

How automatic brake works

It's reported that updated cars are set up with automatic braking system by 50,000 yen.
It's said to be effective to avoid car accidents on the crowded road. The sensor works to set the car speed down and stop the car for the emergency.
I think it very smart and effective technology but something odd for the human ability.
It might be a kind of advanced skill like the change from shift gear to automatic.
It won't be long before cars almost employ the automatic brake system.

To start becoming minimalist

What if you lose all things but life by natural disaster?
What would you take with you if you meet sudden disaster like earthquakes, tsunami or flood?

I wonder if I could make myself calm or not in the confusion.
I have no idea for the serious problem but I come to the conclusion that I'd better possess less as possible in my life because we will lose all the things in the end.
I've been trying to make myself train to be a minimalist for years.
That's the best thought which I choose to prepare for the problems in my life, not only for the natural disaster but in all life itself.
I want to avoid annoying inside me and free from the annoyance or regret.
A minimalist would be ultimately peaceful and happy.

Message from autumn

It's been great weather for these days since the typhoon 18.
It's calm and mind in the morning and evening though being still hot in the day time.
I've found autumn flowers here and there in my neighborhood while walking.
It's one of my favorite.

The harvest moon

It was a great harvest moon last night.
The air was cool and mild good enough to walk under the moon light.
I ate dumpling with Japanese tea after the walk.

By the way, the mountain plants I wanted to know have been answered.
One is "mamushigusa" informed by Mr.Muir. The other is "ubayuri" investigated on the web by myself.
They are explained below on the web.
Mamushigusa

Ubayuri

Thank you for your help.

Mountain plants

I went out to the mountain for an hour's drive to the south.
I walked to find some strange mountain plants beside the path.
I wonder what these plants are.
Does anyone tell me their names?

Outdoor lunch

If you are tired of cooking or eating out at the restaurant or the cafe.
Try to eat going outdoor lunch with friends or pets.
You will find more refreshing and exciting time even for lunch time.
You don't have to spare much time just for a couple hours.
Having rice ball or sandwich and some tea or juice and get to reach to the park or the hill near your house.
I'd like to find my pleasure time for having lunch outdoor under the blue sky.
You can also clean up in the fridge because you only bring the leftovers!
Isn't it a good idea?

After the typhoon

The typhoon brought autumn in here now.
After the typhoon, it got really cool under 20 degree C.
The sky and air are pure and clear . We recognized we are no power under the great nature.



It was beautiful sunset in the west sky yesterday.
