wow Cal shirt at Uniqlo shop! when you live in Kansai (or in Japan?) Berkeley is not known, so it was a surprise. if I can ask more, please make all sizes (only other 3 – Yale, Harvard, Cornell have kids’ size), and use Cal-blue and yellow-gold (suppose blue or navy is already used for Yale? do-not-hesitate)…anyway, thanks, I could briefly remember my days at Stern and Wurster Halls.
(1934 JR Nara station building)
I went to Nara after several years; to Nishino-kyo (Tosho-daiji and Yakushiji area) and Yamato-koriyama for the first time. Not crowded, not deserted, nice weather!
About 3 weeks ago, I saw a rainbow after such a long time – I can’t remember the last time. Little happiness over the sky!
Then last Sunday I saw a (supposed to be) rare train – we see less series 5000 these days + it’s the first time to see “reserved” cars for Keihan. Seems big happiness to train lovers around there (it was peaceful, by the way, unlike those news about tori-tetsu fights). It’s nice to see people with peaceful hobbies – doesn’t have to be sociable or beneficial hobby, just enjoyable hobby.
I decided not to go to Fukuoka awards ceremony (sob, sob…) but they sent me the certificate of Gold prize for drawing Dazaifu-Tenmangu Tobiume (plum tree). The plum emblem of the Fukuoka prefecture on top made me smile. Hope to visit there again soon!
雨一刻も早くやんで欲しいです Rain, rain, go away…
drawing Kamaishi, Iwate – my first time to depict the water surface
Already June! Time flies. These days my optic nerves were so tired after work and I can’t really draw or write blog, even on the days I don’t go to work; from April, I often needed pain killer to sleep.
But finally from this week, the situation slightly changed (I hope) and I wish for more job-sharing. I never new that there is a work which tires your eyes, much more than PC or CAD!
My little relaxation of the working day is Misdo. I know I shouldn’t almost commute there as if I am in the twenties (and yes, in reality I am mostly surrounded by teenagers and university students, or retired people).
And as a loyal commuter I could eat new Mugyutto doughnut (twisted dough, with cinnamon and raisin) on the first day, before the newspaper/public release, which made my day, a little.
Now started drawing Kamaishi, Iwate – mainly the Japan Steel factory, and chimney with a smoke – I heard for the local residents the smoke meant a big step to the recovery from 20110311. My small step to recovery, too.
