… and this is the last day of solar May, yet rather rainy from early morning. On sunny weekend, Shin and Mei-Shun visited 乙戸沼 Park to walk together around the pond after months. 八重桜 or layer-petal cherry trees hold little, lovely fruits among green leaves. Hi, fountains, great to see you three open toward blue sky. Now they are heading to an iris garden perhaps in blossom.
Month: May 2022
Lunar May starts from today. Mei-Shun dropped in above shrine, after driving Shin toward the nearest station, to make a wish to Gods while draw omikuji lots. She is quite busy this morning — appointment with her home dentist Dr. M follows at 10 : 15, with Ame-chan on her lower left jaw fell from a real molar just yesterday. A dermatologist is also expected to see her if she could reach his clinic in time.

Mei-Shun drew 2 omikuji lots at the shrine. One was 凶=kyo, the worst luck while the other 吉=kichi, lucky. And oh, number 33 for the latter sounds like meow-meow to her native ears. So this is a message from you to dad and mom, Mikan-chan. They would keep it at home as the best charm. The former was tied to a twig at feet of 狛犬 N-chan. Your kind conveyance of it for purification by Gods would be highly appreciated.
Great to see you again, Princess Maria. Mei-Shun tried walking on Tuesday, dancing with you today to rebuild her weakened muscle. Oh, field soil has been replaced by gray sand friendlier to your legs. Perhaps the same for riders, felt like stepping on a beach. Shall we put on swimsuits next time? It reminds her of childhood summer vacation when she enjoyed bathing at 玄界灘.
Single & SimpleStandard
Mei-Shun moves from winter clothes to summer ones little by little these days: she brings coats, gloves and knits to a nearby laundry recently restarted their business. Regarding kimono, many of her yukata seem worn out as a whole. Being frayed under sleeves may be because they are often pulled here in kabuki dance. Since all thumbs in sewing, she would ask aid from mom-in-law.

Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine this morning. Young rice paddies welcomed her who led the way weeks before when both 山櫻 and 染井吉野 cherry blossoms flourished in the garden. A pheasant guy was claiming his territory over watered green, yet never seen even in silhouette. Clear sunlight sometimes reached her hair with no cap. A bit itchy on thighs.
Rainfalls from June to July in our country have magical power, says Mei-Shun’s instruction book for orchids care. Since recent weeks have been like such rainy season, she put Mademoiselle Vert outdoors — not on the ground while verandah floor, to let these ladies have a shower. Oh, what a difference! Natural watering seems far better than one every two days by a woman.
… and meow, great to greet you kind followers again. I finished growing a pair of wings on my back last week, at a sobbing night of 小望月=ko-mochi-tsuki or 幾望=kibo. Sorry for mom’s absent from here, caused by deep hurts both to body and mind. From now on, it would be my and her pleasure to resume informing you on my breed, dance, piano and our happy life together.

It seems too soon for us to enter rainy season in May, yet this week saw such weather. Mei-Shun was forced to cancel reservations at her horsey riding club on Monday and today. Well, it is your turn, Ms. Piano, to play with her instead of Princess Maria and others. Wishing a full moon at Sunday night, let’s sing her scores composed by Master Debussy and Beethoven as usual.
松 and 梅Standard
Mei-Shun practices 松の緑 by herself at home these days. As she might mentioned before, this is the only score for those who would like 名取 status in Bando Ryu. On the other hand, beloved Master Mei-Shu said it was one of 2 scores for Kikunoe Ryu students who aim to do the same. Another was 梅の栄, which her last 名取 performed on the stage for the 1st time.
