To our disappointment, annoying little flies swirl above slim canals watering rice paddy these days. Not only baking your nape, summer sunlight energizes such natural creatures. And Shin, who is involved in diet as well, has to stop walking to the nearest station in this season. That makes 乙戸沼 Park available for driver Mei-Shun in early mornings, with a thrilling experience to get on a swing after decades recently.
Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine. She had few coins in the purse, was able to afford only one omikuji saying as follows:
The 14th A Little Lucky. For those who see this sacred lot, it would start from severity like digging deeply into a mountain to reach a gold mine. Just believe in the God, do the best, and they would be well rewarded.
It starts from today, meaning the best day to wish. Mei-Shun’s is good health of course, with her stumbled weight management. Recent omikuji lots said that she would recover from the disease even if she has trouble right now. Or that the disease she has suffered from for a long time would turn to better direction. Well, it might be a disease. Not only her efforts but science would be the best medicine.
When Mei-Shun walked out of a short tunnel between rice paddy, she found a tree full of white flowers shining on the green hill which accommodates the nearest shrine. It is magnolia, still in buds. Since she started walking exercise from the end of April last year, it has not been recognized so far. She is so happy to see the roster of sacred guardians augmented again.
Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine as usual. She heard a pheasant guy call his partner on the way, for the first time of this year. How nice to see you again! … oh, not really because she could not catch him in sight. They are so good at hide-and-seek games, make us human beings ever losers. No problem, you kindly tell us that we are in the middle of spring with 啓蟄=keichitsu, the third of spring 二十四節気 yesterday.
Our nearest shrine has a lot of plants including beautiful bloomers. One of them is plum or ume, found in pale pink and white. Mei-Shun walked to there this morning after weeks — that might be why her omikuji was 凶=kyo, the worst luck. Oh, please forgive her, St. 摩利支天=mari-shiten. Her oath to resume good diet and exercise is solid. On the way to home, another ume in rose pink attracted her eyes. As soon as she stepped into the porch, wind started to blow harder. Thanks to his kind protection?
… for mom to reach her birthday. She has set three objectives of this year; to acquire 師範 certification in Kikunoe-ryu, to succeed in weight control, to pass an examination to become a Japanese language instructor. The second and third might be allowed to carried forward? Nil, this is a matter of willpower. She has continued daily study so far, while succeeded and failed in exercise and healthy eating beside me. They just must be upgraded for better results, meow.
