We have 大寒=daikan, the last and coldest of 二十四節気 today. However, it has been so warm for a few days that Mei-Shun felt really comfortable walking to the nearest shrine. To her surprise, the priest sat still in the main building. She had to ask him omikuji lots instead of helping herself. No.8 大吉=dai-kichi, the luckiest for Shin. What would come next for her?
Mei-Shun is currently giving lessons to Professor M in 梅の栄=ume-no-sakae, Prosperity like Plum Blossom. It was designated as the score for 名取 examination before she started her own lessons under the wings of Master Mei-Shu a decade before. Also the first performance on a stage, it reminds her of fresh days learning what kabuki dance is.
It really is. Mei-Shun hopes such a weather won’t make too torrid summer, when important sport events are to be held in Tokyo. On the other hand, it seems pleasant for her fluffy daughter, mother-in-law and a young 蝋梅 tree in the garden; the first is satisfied with sunlight on a blanket, the second is happy to take care of garden plants including vegetables, the last soon opens the 5th bud among 12.
It stopped raining by noon. Dad’s three-night business trip to Shanghai ended, he gave mom a phone call from Narita Airport. She smiles like gentle sunlight coming through thin clouds, purr. They enjoyed tea time on a cup of coffee and … meow? Are you going out again, daddy? Such a hard worker needs to charge himself with our love and hospitality at home.

Mei-Shun resumed Spanish learning. It means she may allow herself to practice that lyrical score by Master Chopin. Looked a bit complicated, she hesitated to go ahead at first. However, it is actually simple enough for her fingers. Many serial tiny notes let this score sound glamorous and quite difficult. Now she plays it almost every day, expecting to reach levels of other favorite scores.
Mei-Shun is cordially appreciated to Shin, mother, mother-in-law and elder sister who celebrated her birthday. Just a word of congratulation would warm her heart, while his gift is always so gorgeous. Continued from last year, roses of spring sunset or a cappella, her late father called as his younger daughter, arrived in a silver pot. And oh, she won a turtle of happiness in this galette des rois.
Mei-Shun’s hair is taken care by two; a woman for dyeing, a man for cut and curl. However, she has to change the latter, search one nice. Required conditions might depend on you kind followers — hers from the most important to more are technique, communication and price. Location is also imperative, expected in Tokyo to enjoy date with Shin or friends.
