Lovely days

新しいギターの ストラップを作る
Making strap for new guitar

お茶 庭で実ったブルーベリーのパイで
Fika with a pie made from homegrown blueberry

ご近所の田んぼの お米の花が ようやく咲いた
The rice flowers have begun to bloom in neighbor's paddy finally.
Lovely summer days

Current days

最近の ギターストラップ
スロバキアへ 旅立った
The latest guitar strap
Left for Slovakia

ボストンの 友人への 贈り物   
革に ハンドステッチしてみた
A gift for a firiend in Boston
I tried  handstitching leather

ご近所の 田植えの準備の お手伝い
In the middle of May
helped the farmer next door to prepare planting rice sprouts

農家さんの お茶の時間
The farmer's fika

Sowing seed of rice


先週の日曜日 お隣の農家さんの 籾まきを手伝いました。
お隣さんは農業の達人、そして とても優しい先生。

I helped the farmer next door to sow the seeds of rice last sunday.
They are master farmer and very kind mentors.
The rice will be planted in the paddy field about one month later.

Embroidering on a new strap

落書きみたいな 刺繍をする
前に 日暮里繊維問屋街で買った布
色とりどりの 帆布のなかから

それ自体は こんなに沈んでいるのに
青も 金茶も 赤も 白も
多くの色を 優しく引き立てる

そういえば  スウェーデンに住む友達が
昨冬の間 ずっとグレイに沈んだ 景色の中で
とびきり 賑やかな色の 糸を織っていた
きっと スカンジナビアの冬空に包まれて
彼女の色は 嬉しそうに 輝いていただろう

Embroidering like graffity
on a new strap.
Picked gray one from various colors of sailcloth
I bought at Nippori fabric town before.

Though it is such dull color itself
makes so many colors bright
even blue, gold-brown, red or white.

Come to think of it
A friend of mine who lives in Sweden
were weaving with so lively colored threads
in the gray-scape during last winter.
Her colors might be glowing happily
surrounded by the scandinavian winter sky.

Recording day

ギターの弦を 張り替える
気持ちが 明るくなる

Restring my guitar
And I feel brighter

手が 日々を作り

Hands make days
Days inspire hands

It might as well be spring

春じゃないと 知っているけれど…

But I know it isn't spring....

Tiny seeds of happiness

友達が 小さなラジオ局で
しあわせの小さな種を まいています

A friend of mine is sowing tiny seeds of happiness.
In other words, he is hosting a radio program, "Happy Maker".
It is going on every Tuesday PM15:00 - 16:00
on a local community broadcasting, FM Izunokuni.

I made a thema song for rooting for him.
You can listen the song "しあわせの小さな種"

Tiny visitor

ゆうべ 庭に来たのは だれ?
きんいろの ふさふさ しっぽ
こんど来るなら おしえてね

Who visited my garden last night?
A golden bushy tail
Let me know when you come here next time.
