Blooming late

It's getting shorter and shorter of the day time and gets dark earlier in the evening.
It was too late to bloom in my garden that the chrysanthemums, which I had never seen before as I had removed last year.
I had thought it had grown tall and big without any buds or flowers.
I couldn't wait for their blooming.
But this year I was too busy to clean and remove weeds in the garden. Suddenly two days before I had never expected that the flowers began to bloom!
I regret what I did last year....I should have waited for their bloom lately.

How to survive

One of the world wide problems is serious about food. Food is lacking for the amount of the increasing population.
Hunger and poverty are threatening people now.
While there are some people who don't care about hunger or lack of food, who had not eaten or drunk regular meal but some vegetable green juice or something like herbivores.
It's incredible miraculous life but it makes sense in some ways.

Holiday topic

It's an old but new topic about National song "Kimiga Yo".
I thought it was very difficult to understand because of the words were ancient and noble in the old days from " Kokin Waka Shu".
But the author of this topic says that this song has the most beautiful meaning in the world and peaceful mind in it different from other countries.
Oh, I see the words in this song has something with naturalism and animism in harmony with nature.
It's very simple rhythm and poetic.
It's interesting to find the value in our culture.

Playing in the park

It was a beautiful day in the morning and afternoon.
I couldn't help taking a walk with my dog in the park in the afternoon.
There were many people walking and sitting relaxed in the park.
There were off course dogs and cats walker, too. I also saw some young mothers walking with babies. They looked happy to let their babies feel the first Indian summer.
The leaves were getting fade and dead but we are looking forward to the new sprout next term.

Lucky bag targeting to foreign tourists

More foreign tourists visited to Japan than last year since the Yen has dropped down and cheaper to purchase goods in Japan.
New Year's lucky bags are typical in Japan though it seems risky to buy because there might be unwanted things in it. But the habit to buy lucky bags are a kind of pleasure or gift to family just like giving small money to children as it were Christmas present in the western countries.
But who wants to buy unknown things but recently shops announce what's in the bag before hands. So it might attract foreign tourists for the New Year's gift by themselves.
It's a challenging to sell Japanese style gift to the world.

My grandson born last Friday has left the hospital with her mother for two days.
He is growing up day by day working with sucking mother milk, sleeping and crying.
My daughter who is a new mother is busy and tired all day and all nigh without a help.
Fortunately her husband can take work off for the child care leave for two weeks.
So she can take a rest sometime and happy with her husband's hands.
I'm also relieved to hear that she has a lot of friends to care and help her though I can't go to help her immediately.
I really adore how independent of her without her own family.
I was not that like her when I had a baby. Is it her gene from somewhere or from the environment?
It's interesting topics where the human being comes from.
How the baby will be brought up in the future? Is there a blueprint in his gene brought up in the past?

A long lost song

I was really fascinated with the song which was on the radio in the car.
It was new but familiar and nostalgic. Then the personality announced about the song. It was a long lost unfinished song with Queen's Freddie Mercury and Michelle Jackson when they were in 1980's.
But they were both big stars in British worldwide and the other American world top star.
They've never done to finish the collaboration work yet.
The long lost masterpiece is finally to release soon, 12 in November.
I'd like to inform Alice who has been crazy about Freddie and fell in love with his songs.
I had also in love with his ...actually his great talent and charm will never die after his death.
It's a good chance to get a gift from the heaven in the end of the year....don't you think, Alice?
Sorry to talk about too private thing.
I'm sorry I can't let you listen to it yet.

The soup-bubble maker

I saw a young man making soup-bubbles and entertained kids and their parents, almost mothers in the day time.
It was a fine afternoon when people enjoyed sunbathing and walking in the park.
Another day I had seen some guys juggling, seemed like practicing a performance.
I think it very wonderful that many performers enjoy their own skills and show in public.
Thanks to peaceful and happy world.

One of them sat sleeping on my feet. It was a fantastic evening.


At the end of color

Leaves and fruits seem to fall down after the autumnal rain storm.
It's the sigh of the beginning of winter and we need to warm as well as the natural things getting into hibernation.
I remember that song which I used to sing at the music study in my school days.
We sing different part and in chorus in harmony with each other.
It's familiar, isn't it?
