White asparagus is the seasonal vegetable in spring in Germany. I bought it and tried to cook it, but I didn’t know the standard German seasoning, so I grilled it in butter and soy sauce. It was tasty good:) But next time I’m going to try German-style seasoning (maybe cream taste??).
I made my debut as a piano teacher from today (Btw, when I was a college student, I sometimes taught instead of my piano teacher). My friend’s daughter was looking for a piano teacher, and she came to learn it immediately because she got interested in my piano. She wants to be a singer and be able to sing while playing the piano. Her singing voice is very beautiful and she has good ears and the sense of sound, so I’m sure she will improve quickly. And also, for me, it’s good opportunity to re-study the fundamentals of the piano by teaching her it, it’s thankful. And I’ll learn music terms in English and German from now on, it’s exciting🎼
I had the piano tuned and repaired today. The sound became very clear and beautiful by carefully fixing the parts where the strings became loose and sounded like a harpsichord and the parts where there was a strange noise. A tuner said the loudness of the sound can only be reduced by placing a blanket or other cloth inside or behind it. Seems that this piano is over 100 years old, but it produces a beautiful sound that doesn’t feel that old at all. I bet many owners have changed between 100 years, and now I own it, this encounter is wonderfull. I want to cherish to use it:)
The piano will finally be transported to my place tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to it! However, the tuning and repair will be done next week because the pitch is out of sync and the parts connecting the lowest note hammer and the strings is broken. Also, the piano has a very gorgeous sound, but the range of ff to pp is narrow and it’s difficult to do subtle expressions as it is, so I want a piano tuner to adjust it 🙂
I’ve been looking for a used piano for the past two weeks, but I’ve had a difficult time because a timing with the piano provider didn’t fit and so on. But I decided to buy the piano of the one I visited today! I have been practicing by going to the piano practice room every week since October of last year, but since my toes were injured, I couldn’t go because my range of activity was restricted. In the case of musical instruments, it’s really difficult to regain the original movement because the fingers deteriorate significantly with occasional practice. However I can play it everyday from now on 🎹 The piano that I started at the age of 5 is my lifework 🙂
The cubed work was completed. Its theme is “spring”, and the color composition was inspired from cherry blossoms blooming on the riverside. I’m sure this beautiful scenery has been going on for tens of thousands of years, and I hope that the season of enjoying for beauty will continue for a long time, so I titled “infinity”. I’m probably planning to make a summer / autumn / winter version with different designs and colors:)
Last night I went to watch a movie after super long time. Since watching “Bohemian Rhapsody”(I watched it three times :p), I had no opportunity to come to cinema. This time I watched an American movie titled “C’mon C’mon”. The language is English and the subtitles are German, so I thought that it’s a good time to study German while reading subtitles and listening English, but there were some parts of English that I couldn’t hear when they had a strong pronunciation habit or they spoke broken English, so I was doing the best just listening. Anyways, it was a heartwarming and nice story 🙂
Now I’m making a cubed work again. Its size is 10cm square, it’s smaller than before. I painted the theme of buildings previous time, but this time I wanted to make “something that is just beautiful”, so I’m drawing Japanese patterns. Hope I can express the beauty as I imagined 🙂
I’m going to have a tandem lesson with an Iranian woman who recently became a friend. She learns Japanese from me and I learn German from her. Her German is native level so I thought she was a German when I talked with her first time. I’m motivated to learn German towards conversation lessons:)
My new work of Japanese painting was completed. This time, I tried to create a straightforward composition and expression that wouldn’t be strange. That’s because, although there’re many incidents in this world, I thought I wanna stay being honest and not lie to myself anytime:) Well, what should I draw next?
