Sudden Autumn

Standard

Meow, I heard from mom that we have 立秋=risshu, the first of autumn 二十四節気 today. It really means as another powerful typhoon approaches us, started to rain from last midnight. Since the mercury continued to hit around 40 degrees Celsius these days, I have been able to spare time to go into the restroom. However, such a rapid change of temperature makes my rear body busy …

Caught mom.

Poor Whites

Standard

Vanilla-san, you cannot take part in classes from 10 : 30 to 16:00. Summer sunlight hurts you into gasps, although your coat is said to block it. Oh, you are also injured on the back, caused by your own perspiration and friction with leather saddles. Mei-Shun feels so sorry for reserving you in intensive gallop lessons. And Maria-chan, please do not hesitate to say that you are too exhausted to work.

Summer Sky

Standard

After they declared that rainy season looked to have left Kanto area at the end of June, the soonest on meteorological records, we really have torrid summer. Weirdly windy from early times, it has been all clear for several days in a row. Since Mei-Shun prefers quiet mornings, she is a bit tired of such a condition where no window could be opened to give stuffy rooms a good airing.

Fifth Moon

Standard

It was 端午の節句 or lunar May 5th yesterday. Covered with rainy clouds of this season, we have missed beautiful crescents since the 2nd of the same. Mei-Shun gave it up in half, yet felt lucky for seeing her float among dark shadow. Please find following a photo taken by her who made such a challenge despite being awful at it. She wishes it could help a piece of smile for Osaka people.

First Shampoo

Standard

I feel somehow uncomfortable in lower body from a few days before, have to rush into the restroom over and over. It is cool yet humid, makes mom switch on the air conditioner. I don’t like it, hiss! Let me relax at a warmer place, on your legs for example. However, she is too busy to stay here once the sun comes out among grey clouds. Meow, I … oops? What’s this foam over my coat?

Belated Contact

Kasen-san, daughter of Master Mei-Shu, emailed to Mei-Shun recently. According to it, her mother has stayed at a nursing home from last autumn. So it has finally come. Mei-Shun, the last 名取 of Kikunoe Ryu perhaps, started to instruct Professor M in 京鹿子娘道成寺 from the end of April. 花子, lead role of this tragedy, might work to make all ends meet.

Farewell Maybe

Standard

Master Bando kindly gave Mei-Shun a phone call the other day. Asked how her master was, the latter replied that nothing had been informed. Their communication went blurred sometimes, might reflect minds of those involved in this matter. On the other hand, Professor M, the last student of Master Mei-Shu, requested Mei-Shun to instruct him in Kikunoe-Ryu dance.
