Tanka Booklet

d0112879_1934440.jpg

At last I've got the tanka booklet of my nephew's grandpa.
I've had it printed 50 copies. My sister said I should have put grandpa's profile;
it had crossed my mind but thought it over, for it would be boasting.
Now that it is available, I feel I should have put the profile and his photo
to save up the time to tell what sort of person he was.

The Sewing Craze?!

For these couple of weeks I've been sewing a lot of things.
These are some of them.

Generation Ethics

Yesterday I joined the group of people, who tried to argue
pro and con of generation ethics.

Today I found these words, which I would like to have quoted
last night.

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. "
Native American Proverb

Carnival before Easter

We had food and water shortage; the way the authorieis warned against

contamination had been devastatingly wrong. They should have made

it clear and explicit, for example, "There has been detected radiation on

some spinach, if you keep eating it for a year, you might be in trouble.

You should throughly wash it before eating. Farmers are to have their

products checked before they put them on market. If one of your lots

indicates higher figure, you are to remove it."



Now we have rice as we used to! We have bread, too. We are still

short of fermented beans, which are supposed to work for detoxification.

The dogs let me share their fermented beans, about which they are crazy!?

I've started cooking proper dishes. Hugo, one of my FB friends recommended me

I should make my own bread. That somehow reminded me of the Last Supper.

I liked the idea of the last supper. I've started drinking wine.

I've been eating more meat and fish.

I've found the song, which covers both Atsumori and Tadanori.

The Aoba Flute--Atsumori and Tadanori 1906

Words by Ohwada Takeki
Music by Tamura Torazoh

Heike, defeated in the battle at the First Valley,
Woe is the Heike clan's courtier, his life no more!
Early dawn floates the flute sound
In the storm over Suma
Could it be the Aoba Flute?

Deepening night, knocking on the gate
Of his mentor, handing in his poems
From his armour, to his last breath
Has remained the poem--
"The Blossoms on this evening."
