BGM: Sting "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You"
I worked late today. This morning I posted the article for the advent calendar, which is a project of a server on Discord. I always posted my diary on that server, so I feel thankful for them. This year is also the one I have enjoyed posting so I am glad about that. But my skill of English is really proceeding or improving? I can't see. After that, I went to the food court at AEON nearby my home and read the rest of John Irving's "A Widow For One Year" with enjoying the Pat Metheny Group's music. I feel really cool because of the season so thought that I must need a scarf.
As I wrote yesterday, that Irving's novel is not a thrilling or entertaining one. You can find that it might be boring because of the description of various characters' lives and the novel's world itself. But Irving's touch makes me read the kind of really orthodox days this novel describes. Yes, he is a great page-turner. TBH I am a pessimist so used to think that our life is not sweet. But Irving writes like celebrating those bittersweet days and the tiny people living in there. I read the first half and enjoyed his deep world.
I listened to Ben Folds. When I was a university student, in other words in the 90s, I learned about Ben Folds Five's album. After a long time, I touched his/their music again and got impressed by the powerful and positive sounds of the piano. I thought I want to watch the movie "About Time", which uses Ben Folds' music impressively. Ah, I always put the hole in my mind with music, literature, and work. But I would never be satisfied with them. My activity is like Sisyphos's one. 10 years later, can I stand higher stage?
I entered my workplace and started my work. I always say complaint as you know, but if I start my work it suits me, so I can be involved in it. Ah, I never could realize using the system of job coaches if I was alone. I would give up and say "it must be the case in crowded cities". This year, I experienced various miracles too. Like Prefab Sprout sing, "Life's a miracle". They also sing "Lives come and go but life no denial". Ah, they are right! Then it says that I was once wrong. But that's life, isn't that?
