Dear Visitors

Dear Visitors,
Thank you so much for your continuous visits to my website everyday.
In these days, I am surprised so many unexpected visitors from all over the world, especially US and Euro countries.
It seems too many and countless people are eagerly awaiting the end of the coronavirus pandemic at your own place.
We are facing a critical situation on the planet at the same time, but have a positive mind and never give up.
It’s always darkest before the dawn.
 
 
In Japan, the national flower “SAKURA” has begun to bloom.
Please share the beautiful spring scenery of Japan I have taken at last evening around the foot of Mt. Tsukuba.

Simon & Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water (Audio)
(album: Bridge over Troubled Water – 1964)

 
Chorus:
When you’re weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I’ll dry them all (all)
I’m on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

*written by Paul Simon

 

 

 

【雑記】Coffee Break ~ Vol.9「文化づくり」

「文化」「カルチャー」について、もう一度ちゃんと考え直さないといけません。
人々の暮らしを豊かにするものは何か。胸に手を当て、目蓋を閉じれば、好きな歌の一節でも聴こえてきそうなもの。伝統芸能と呼ばれる「歌舞伎」や「能」だけが、文化ではありません。そこを理解できる「バラク・オバマ」前米国大統領のような国政を司るリーダーが、この国には必要不可欠なのは明白。人々の生活や心を豊かにしてくれる、「アーティスト」とその周辺での仕事を生業とする人々へ、もっとリスペクトを持って接するべき。真の意味で、「文化」を育める国に向かって欲しい。
