〜Immeasurable prospects 無限の可能性〜

The Western astrology has kept expressing out loud the “New Era”.  I have been thrilled!  Somehow, I am excited.  Am I too simple?

And this is the framed work that I posted on July 20th.

.

西洋占星術の世界で『新しい時代』が叫ばれ続けています。楽しみです! 何故かワクワクします。単純?

というわけで、7月20日に投稿した作品の表装済みの姿です。

January 15

People have long celebrated the day, January 15 as a kind of second New Year Day, because according to the lunar calendar, it marks the first full moon after the New Year Day.

.

The well-known shrine in my neighborhood provides rice porridge cooked with azuki beans every year.

.

I got some for my mother who will turn 92 in summer, because the porridge is supposed and expected to bring good luck to the elderly.

.

I wrote “avoiding disaster”, “inviting happiness”, “health” and “longevity” for her.

Written oracle 静かなパワースポット

Yesterday, coincidentally, fell on the Full Moon in the Libra, I went to the shrinewhich I visit from time to time.

And there I got a written oracle.  Its comment in the form of tanka roughly goes as follows.

Birds freed from a cage are each having fun/

Lots of fun in the fields in springtime/

Translation and calligraphy by Tomoko

折しも、天秤座満月の昨日、時々お詣りする神社に行ってきました。

御神籤もいただいてきました。短歌形式で書かれています。

Custom of visiting a grave お彼岸なので

 

I was planning to visit the grave of my mother’s natal home.  However, some serious affair prevented me from it.

昨日は母の実家の墓参りをするつもりでいましたが、別の要件のために行けませんでした。

Special moon 夜の散歩

After dinner on the eve of harvest moon, I went out for a short walk with my mother on her wheel chair and was in an ill temper a little, hoping she would feel better.  As she was appreciating the huge, beautiful moon, she obviously began to feel better and peaceful.

中秋の名月の前夜、食事の後で、ちょっとご機嫌斜めの母と夜の車椅子散歩に出ました。大きくて綺麗なお月さんを見ているうちに母の心もほどけて行きました。

Happy birthday! 甲骨文字でお祝い

Today marks the birthday of the wife of the couple who both have helped me with expanding my horizon as a calligrapher for many years.  I wrote the letters 祝“to cerebrate” and 延“to wish for future longevity full of happiness” in a kind of mode of the primitive characters from the ancient China.  The reason I chose this style is simply I am very interested in the origin of Chinese characters.

今日は、ご夫妻揃って、書家としての私の世界を拡げることに尽力し続けてくださっている奥さまの方のお誕生日ですので、お祝いの言葉「祝」とこれからの幸福に満ちた長寿を願う「延」を甲骨文字風に書いてみました。何故甲骨文字かというと、漢字の原点に興味があるからです。

Invisible harvest moon 見えなかった中秋の名月

9-15

Tonight we could have seen the beautiful harvest moon. However, unfortunately it was cloudy. I made this haiku for my mother who loves to see the moon, especially the full moon.

Mother is eighty-eight/

Toward the harvest moon/

Is cloudy sky/

今夜は中秋の名月のはずでしたが、ずっと曇り空。米寿を得た母は月を観るのが好きなので、この俳句を書きました。
