The lady on a float gave us a ride during a parade on Martin Luther King's Day.
Extremely I enjoyed it with my soulmate.

I felt like I was a queen!

なんつって。

自分の中で
まだできないこと、できること、できてること、やってること、
今はこの段階で大丈夫、とか色々考えながら、、、
そうやって大きくなっていくんだなあ。

とにかく感謝したいのは
どんな状況でも I'm enjoying myself でいられる自分。
そんでもってたくさんの人に愛されてること!
I could not be more thankful for everything I have.

そんでもって
喋れることが大切なんじゃなくて 何を表現するのか、何にそれを使うのかが一番重要
Perfectionistにならなくていいけど、Passiveになっちゃいけない

Sunday brunch at where I get together

ハワイに帰ってきて、クラスも始まり…でもやっぱり一番楽しみにしてたのは日曜日!
いつものランニング仲間、久しぶりに会って、うーん。とっても幸せ!!
走りながら、色んな話して、笑いながら、
そしていつものCoffeeShopでコーヒーと、ちょっとおなかを満たすものをみんなでシェア。
I was really enjoying it...

Sunsetを見に友達とBeachへ(宿題はちょっと置いといて!)、空を見ながらのんびり景色が変わるのを楽しむ
そして友達からもらったワインを飲みながら、記事を書く…
How wonderful life is.
 
ただいま! 

I like to go on tour guides in museums, so I always look at what time the tour starts and take advantage of it. 

I went to a number of museums during my stay in Washington D.C.
I had an interesting experience at one of museums.

I was in the abstract arts museum, and had a one-to-one guide.

The abstract arts usually cannot be understood easily.
(I usually think "how can this be art?!”)

The docent told me to feel the art pieces. 

What we did was look at paintings for a while.
Afterwards she would ask me what I thought about the piece.

(The above picture is what I saw first)

What I thought at first was…. this paint was just yellow and a doodle.
(How poor my imagination was)

But I started thinking, why the artist used yellow color in the painting,
who are the behind of people, would it be different if the color was blue…

It was really interesting to hear the impression she got from the painting. 
(She even used the word “democratic” for it…)

(Sharing our thoughts was ongoing debate toward the "pizza piece") 
 
Every art works has meaning behind of it.
As you get closer to the piece, you would see the inner meaning.
But there is no present answer to its meaning.
You keep asking what is the meaning and is there a deeper meaning beyond what you see with your eyes.


This experience made me think that language is a prominent tool for sharing our thoughts.  

I got to know how to enjoy arts more!
(If you apply this for all arts, you wouldn’t finish everything until a museum is closed!)
 

そっかアート作品ってそういう風に楽しむのか〜
じっと見て、考えて、ていうか感じて、
色がこうだったらどう感じるんだろうとか、作者は何を伝えたいのかとかとか、
後でキャプション見てなるほど、ってなったり、えーそれは違うでしょってなったり。
見る人によって違う訳ですね、感じ方は。 

こんなんアートじゃないっしょって言ったら終わりなわけだ!(以前の私)

My winter vacation is almost over.
I really enjoyed my stay in DC... I cannot express well how happy I was in words. 

I'm sure I miss everything I had gotten used to do and the wonderful family I stayed with.


I tried to take a photo of what I ate everyday.
But I always remembered it after I had eaten. Too delicious!

See you around,

I have been staying in NYC for a week over the New Year Day.
It was my first time to spend the end of the year and the begining of the year without family. 
And also that was not in Japan... wow, I have grown up. 

NYC was too busy for me. (I felt like I was in Tokyo)
I'm a not city girl~

Anyway, I caught really good shows and visited famous museums there.
Good experience!
