Shin and Mei-Shun visited the latter’s mother in 草津 last Saturday: it is the day beloved father of the same passed away 9 years ago. His car inherited by his younger daughter departed their home at 8 o’clock, arrived the lodge at noon. This cute flower called コアジサイ or baby hydrangea, with a gentle and sweet scent, welcomed the couple exhausted by jam-packed driving.
Mei-Shun needs to renew her certificate for immigration-related jobs, being in a hurry a bit this time. Hers will be expired at the end of next month, so she planned to attend an imperative seminar in April at Yokohama. However, it seems they failed to reserve a hall there, replaced it by one in Okinawa! Anyway, one of the relics of Edo Castle gave gentle words of “well done” to her.
At least Mei-Shun feels so. Rainfall makes her stay indoors, find something special to do in such an environment. For example, even if she cannot see the moon at night, great composers like Debussy and Beethoven would help much. Their works to express moonlight soothe not only her but also every mind, while sensitive technique is required to play them precisely.
… to you, Shin. Your mother often tells Mei-Shun about the night you were born. “It was raining,” she says. “Every expecting mother at the hospital felt like delivering a baby one after another.” Mystery of life, it really sounds. And it is also said to be the best day to start practice of kabuki or noh, including Japanese dance of course. It might be why his wife is attracted by this form of art.
Mei-Shun rushed to乙戸沼 Park in the morning, hearing today would be the last sunny day before rainy season. It seemed first that all lady’s tresses were cut by lawn mowers. Along her walking course around the pond, annual iris festival is held right now, accommodating colorful ones. Hi, fountain lilies, lucky to see you. And oh, your survival is highly appreciated.
This is one of yukatas or summer kimonos Master Mei-Shu gave her tall student. When Mei-Shun bowed sitting on her legs for a lesson the other day, something popped between thighs. She immediately knew what happened. Since Master is thin and short, her yukata cannot endure bigger pressure. The strongest thread for futon mat is necessary to repair it.
She finished blooming, made up a fluffy seed ball. Mei-Shun admires this little and strong life, hopes to see her surrounded by children next year. Such idea reminds her of the BGM aired in a beauty salon. Mr. H, her hairdresser who often puts on nice T-shirts, hinted Charlie Puth whose hit tune has been used by a lovely figure skater, yet she could not recognize his voice in another song.
