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?
I found out a poem ‘commitment’ by Goethe. It’s amazing:) I make an effort to study German so that I’ll be able to read it in the original text one day. →“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream, you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”
Since I was a kid, I had the image against our society that the earth is riding on a thin thread and manages to maintain balance while tottering. I can’t put it into words well, but it seemed like that the world was trying to hide it superficially, even though it contained a danger of collapse. I feel that the time has finally come for the balance to change dramatically. I avoid specific mention, but perhaps we might be forced to do value conversion. I think each of us is responsible for whether the earth rolls down from the top of the thread or whether a new thick thread is knitted. Btw my sprain is getting better:)
Three days after the injury, the discoloration and swelling of the skin due to internal bleeding still remained, but the pain in the affected area disappeared considerably. In the case of a fracture, it seems that strong pain will continue. Therefore, in my case, I made a self-diagnosis that it was a sprain. For a while, I don’t wear shoes with heels that put a strain on my toes, and walk with sneakers 👟 Hope it can recover quickly.
During yesterday’s yoga, I tried to keep the balance pose and failed, and I put a lot of load on my toes. After returning home, the pain became severe and when I looked at the affected area, it was swollen blue, and I suspected that this was a sprain or a fracture and observed overnight. The pain is terrible in the morning and my finger turns reddish purple, so I considered going to the hospital, but till next week, the booking was full everywhere, so I will observe a little longer for the time being. Probably it’s a sprain rather than a fracture. Wishful thinking:) I’m tough by nature, so I have little to do with internal organs or medical illnesses, but I sometimes get orthopedic-related injuries. Once, I’ve been to the hospital with a donkey biting the back of my hand lol. But I haven’t had any fractures, so I believe that bones are okay this time as well.
As I wrote before, three years ago I left the office worker and went on to the way of art. After returning from trip yesterday, I realized that I had been running on this way for three years without stopping (psychologically, not physically). I was finally able to pause on this trip. I think I was afraid to pause because of worries about quitting the belonging to the organization and impatience for the future. Of course, I have still anxiety, but my life is so much fun that I can’t compare it to when I was an office worker. Anyways, I keep in mind the importance of pausing properly so as not to be too worker holic:)
