Old practice on the midwinter night 柚子入りお風呂

標準

Today falls on the Winter Solstice.

It is a long tradition in Japan to enjoy a hot bath with a kind of citrus fruits in the bathtub on the night of the midwinter. The refreshing smell and the nice feeling of the water help you to relax.

I read a comment in a post on the Instagram that this custom also shows the Japanese people’s love of taking a bath.

今日は冬至。

柚子湯はこの寒い時季のいい習慣だと思います。

誰かがインスタに、日本人の風呂好きがよく分かると書いておられました。

The first line:  Good fortune, worldly happiness, including economic aspect and a happiness of longevity.

And the second line expresses a destination for the year 2019, which is, life full of smile and laughter.

The task for today’s practice session was a calendar for the year 2019.

As you can see, the last stroke of the letter 『DREAM 夢』is still missing.

I am going to ask my mother to finish the letter when we practice together next time.

今日の課題は、2019年のカレンダー。

ご覧の様に『夢』の最後の点はまだ書いていません。

今度一緒にお稽古するときに母に書いてもらいます。

Inspiration from a good, old friend 持つべきものは・・・

標準

I wrote this one, being inspired by a good, old friend who contacted me for the first time in a long time.

It is such a fun to write something getting inspiration from and thinking about someone really precious!

And I would like to see her soon!

Different class 愛の格

標準

These are “LOVE’s” by my teacher and myself.  There is a distance beyond belief.

Incidentally, my teacher employed the cursive style, which explains the difference in forms.

我が師の愛と私の愛。格が違いすぎてどうにもなりません。

因みに先生は草書の『愛』を書いておられるので、字姿が違うのです。
