Today I worked late. This morning I finished reading Shinji Aoyama's diary. I found that he had expressed his sensitive feelings about other people's death. It says that he must have keen senses. He also shows critical points of view on various dramas, movies, literature, and news. I just agree with part of them but I have been impressed by that, so I thought it is an interesting diary. This Christmas the next volume of that will be released so I want to read it. He wrote that after stopping drinking alcohol, and just kept on writing just before the end of his life. At the late stage, what did he find in his life?
I listened to Silent Poets's "For Nothing". I found that it was like a soundtrack of an imaginary movie. It must sound weird but I remembered Wim Wenders's "Paris, Texas" by it. It has a little bit too abstract taste, but it affects my imagination and lets me remind myself of some pictures. Listening to it again, I thought that it was like I had watched a movie (probably it was because I also read Shinji Aoyama's diary). It fits this fine day.
Remembering... it was 2000 that Shinji Aoyama's movie "EUREKA" was shown. I guess Silent Poets's "For Nothing" was released at almost the same time. That time was the period I had drunk a lot and stayed in a chaotic mind. I can't remember I touched these arts in real-time, but they are still vivid and fresh arts in me. Probably it was the age, of my 20s when I still had a pure and sensitive mind. TBH I think any new arts (music and movies) attract me, so I have to follow Shinji Aoyama who kept on following new arts.
Today I read Einstein's interesting quote. "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid". Einstein himself was the person who had to live as a useless person at a period in his life I heard. So this quote still has power. Once, I was really a useless man at my office. But now I can stand on a stage shining. I want to use English at my work, but I shouldn't be too greedy...
