人生は上々だ

Life is good.

Indeed, we say that autumn is for reading. But today I couldn't read books well. I tried to read Yoshikichi Furui's "Karioujyouden Shibun" but it didn't come to my mind. So I just touched my smartphone a lot and read some books as zapping with Ryuichi Sakamoto's music. Time just passed away like that. It can happen in such a long life. I have read "Karioujyouden Shibun" for a long time, but I still feel awful about this book's profound content. I want to read Furui's book again. Or reading Souseki Natsume again... Writing like this, I noticed that recently I don't read any new books.

This morning I heard that a person has been sick because of the vaccination for corona in a LINE group. I'm going to get vaccinated for the fourth time the next Wednesday. I tried to say something to cheer that person, but I couldn't do it well. But, as I wrote before, I did some comments to her about the theory "do make mistakes with a positive mind" that I have learned from the English conversation class. I have been thankful for her because she embraced me to express my truth in English. She also leads me to realize the job coaches and also lets me go forward. I'm glad if my words knock her mind.

Why don't I read Haruki Murakami again this autumn? I want to read his first novel "Hear The Wind Sings"... I can't see why I am so attracted to Haruki Murakami. But, at least, I have an impression that his novels are just about the people who have "handicapped" or "maladjusted" people. I'm also that kind of "handicapped" person so am attracted well... and also, he is a good storyteller. If I judged his novels in a businesslike way, I would say that Yoshikichi Furui is better than Haruki Murakami. But Haruki's novels are very friendly to me.

Today was 'higan'. This evening I had 'ohagi'. I sent the pic of 'ohagi' and told about 'higan' for the foreign friends on WhatsApp. I enjoyed a certain connection with them. I feel that those foreign friends empower me. I once imagined that I could be famous on social media, but now I just enjoy that kind of tiny connection and that's enough. I steadily learn English and read books. I also think about various things and write down them. I record various ideas from these boring or peaceful days and wrote them in my diary and novels. I want to keep on doing so.
