Thank you so much, Professor M. His photo above seems to accommodate a lady sitting on folded legs, holds a ball. Her silhouette reminds Mei-Shun of the heroine of 京鹿子娘道成寺. Yes, this part requires dancers to walk and jump crouched. Such exercise never allows them to have tyres around waist. It would therefore be the best for the last 名取 of Kikunoe-Ryu to keep her body in shape.
Welcome back from the U.S., Shin. He took no day off, went out by Mr. Diamond this morning. Mei-Shun followed him on Ms. Scarlet after a few hours to see Dr. M, her home dentist. Empty place of late Ame-chan almost recovered from a hole. However, a little problem was found there: an awfully black spot was seen in a photo. It is not decayed yet, requires intensive care.
Meow, we are on the last day of solar January. Mom seems to have decided what to do first in 2023; to improve horsey-riding technique, to keep herself healthy enough to attend all lessons she reserves. It might have been easy when she was half of her age, yet never right now. If she could complete it in coming three month, second goal would be considered with Ms. Piano. Purr … purrr …

Guys and GirlsStandard
Mei-Shun visited her horsey riding club today for the last time this year. She hopes to choose gentle partners to improve her technique, trying several ones including Mr. Danone Caesar. He is a son of that Deep Impact, resembles the great father in charming eyes and tinier body. And slender Madoka-chan, mom got slimmer than before. Could you help her more from next year?
Now who would be Mei-Shun’s partner to dance? Candidate horseies include Mr. Treasure, Mr. Applause and Mr. Sound Harvey. When she took the 4th-grade certificate, Ms. I and Mr. Vanilla Arc helped her. This time is not to gain any, yet she would like to win enough technique to enjoy dance with them. Oh, Princess Maria, you are dissimilar to above guys. Please just keep your pretty peace.
Day to DanceStandard
It has become rare for Mei-Shun, just sometimes with Princess Maria. Actually, she stopped reserving canter lessons from last month, caused by a kind of slump. Perhaps knowing reasons, she asked a chief instructor Mr. S to give her effective private lessons instead of ones in a group. It would start after 11th, December when she finish a Spanish examination.
Mei-Shun continued to practice “Salut d’Amour” during Shin’s business stay in China, has learned how to say hello clearly to him on Ms. Piano. You need tuning soon, darling, who is sweet enough to sing moonlight scores often these days together with her best friend. Shall we look for a new technician this time, expecting one shares gender at least in mind?
Allegro to AdagioStandard
Some combination of scores help Mei-Shun to play Ms. Piano more smoothly. For example, Waltz Op. 64-1 or “Valse du Petit Chien” composed by Master Chopin leads to easier “Le Cygne” by M. Saint-Saëns. “Pavane pour une Infante Défunte” by M. Ravel also works for “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by M. Bach. Since tempo is all different between the former, fingering might matter.
Oh? A letter to Mei-Shun arrived, from Spanish examination secretariat. She gave up taking it in June when rainy season said to have already gone. It was too torrid to go outdoors, or seemed even dangerous to get on a train bound for Tokyo. What would have come if any accident occur, stopped air conditioning? Ah, that is why above paper has blanks in score and result.
We have 七夕=tanabata, Star Festival and 小暑=shousho, the 5th of summer 二十四節気 today. Mei-Shun practiced canter with Mr. Great Fighter in fresh air. Well, she never calls it dance, since her technique has been seriously deteriorated. Not so much in 松の緑, perhaps thanks to lessons so far. She wishes the same soon work in above, yet it is always accompanied by a lovely partner.
