♫ Grandpa’s gonna take me to… ♫ 動物園

2-28 2.28 Baku

My mother and I went to the zoo today.

At first she wasn’t quite happy about the idea but I have a fond memory about the zoo where my grandfather often took me when I was a little child. He loved me dearly because I was his first lineal grandchild.

My mother with her mental disorder has become interestingly undefended and recently we have truth talks from time to time. Before that, she seldom talked about my grandfather who passed away more than fifty years ago, but these days she often says she liked him for his kindheartedness.

However, the zoo looked much different from the one in my memory, as its refurbishing was just completed last year.

今日は母と動物園に行ってきました。

母ははじめ少し嫌がっていましたが、動物園は私にとって懐かしい場所なので。幼かった頃、初孫で内孫の私を可愛がってくれた祖父がしょっちゅう連れて行ってくれたからです。

精神を病んで、その代わり、上手い具合に心のタガの外れた母とはこのところよく本音トークをします。以前は、50年以上前に亡くなった祖父の話などあまりしなかった母は、この頃はよく心優しかった祖父が好きだったと言います。

けれども、昨年改装が完成し、美しく生まれ変わった動物園は、以前とはずいぶんと様子が変わっていました。

yushokai について

I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age seven under the late Akiyama Kodo, a distinguished master of calligraphy whose calligraphic works are found even today on stone monuments for public parks and fasciae for long-established businesses. Despite my age, I think I am increasingly active in my calligraphic practice. "My works give the impression of lightheartedness and overflowing vitality, evoking the dance of air and the flow of clear water" is what people tell me, I am happy and proud to tell you. My distinct style has attracted many followers both domestic and abroad. Having continued for over half a century to be evolving as a calligrapher, I am never willing to compromise. May accomplishments: Solo exhibition, 2009 and three group exhibitions in Kyoto, Japan (2011, 2013, 2015) Participation in a group exhibition in Poznan, Poland, November 2017 Productions as requested from individuals, businesses and citizen’s movements
