Maria, Maria

Standard

She is all snow-white. Her eyelashes are so long that they cover her black, round eyes perfectly. Her mane is thick and fluffy enough to bind with a hair tie on forehead. Thanks to this angel, Mei-Shun graduated from the second class to join the third. Now struggling a bit to gallop in the fourth and last of basic class, she would like to ask lovely Maria-chan how to control a rein comfortably for horsey.

Acknowledgement

Thanks a million to you all, dearest family and friends. Mei-Shun has added another year to her age on Saturday. We are never able to live alone. We always have someone to support while be supported. At least she feels so right now. What she could do for them might be a pinch of salt, yet would continue the best efforts to express her thankfulness. Once again, please kindly take her hug full of love to you.

Her Saddle(^o^)/

Standard

Thank you so much, Shin. He is so generous to allow Mei-Shun to own a saddle to put on horsey’s back. They would call this one shining in black Mr. Sirius, honoring the maker. And today is his debut on Madoka-chan in Ms. I’s lesson. He is still a bit too hard to handle, especially in belt to tie around horsey’s nose. Careful treatment is incumbent after riding to keep his elegance.

Dark Riding

Standard

Although a crescent shines beautifully in the sky, it is a bit hard to stay on horsey’s back at night in winter. Coughs prevent Mei-Shun from joining such class from 17 o’clock — so sorry, Ms. I. Two lessons from 14 : 15 and 15 : 15 selected Mr. M and Mr. X respectively. Boys, please accept Mei-Shun’s apology for replacing the former by gentle Amazónes while the latter by lovely Maria in another class.

 

New Moon

Standard

It is great for Mei-Shun to walk to the nearest shrine after 1 month, on 朔日 meaning the first of lunar November. Last time found colorful foliage, while this time all different. Rice paddy changed into beige field covered by frost, looked hard in dark shadows of trees. 手水鉢=chozu-hachi, a square basin to wash hands before prayer in the shrine garden was frozen.

 

Ms. Amazónes

Standard

You are gentle enough to give a warm glance at Mei-Shun when she coughs on your shoulders, looks like saying “are you all right?” Thanks a million. She replaced Exodus Wizard with you: he is not a bad boy, yet would not give a good lesson — even if he makes a barometer to show a rider his/her current level of technique. Oh, regarding lessons, Mei-Shun drives Ms. Scarlet to everywhere including the club to get used to her.

 

Joy in Garden

Standard

Mei-Shun feels happy since our hagi or bush clover keeps round, lovely leaves this year. Including gingko in the backyard, yellow dominates our garden in early winter. The latter changed his clothes from green to current color of ripe banana via pale gold. Fallen leaves are collected to dry perfectly, hoped to work as good-looking nutrition for the real banana pot.
