Stronger/Prismo - November 26th 2022

This is a reminder to myself

Never skip writting English, even only one sentence
For learners who practice English as a foreign language, writing is enormously/ginormously important.

Diary - October 28th 2022

In multicultural/multiracial society, many people tend to hang around with those who have something common with oneselves.
To the contrary, in monocultural/monoracial society, some people look for those who are different from oneselves.

This is what I noticed in my experience.

Intercultural friendship/relationship is not easy. There are a lot of things you need to overcome.
But to me, same cultural relations are boring. So, all I can do is to get up again even if you are faced with unexpected situations. Plus, not to become too pessimistic would also be necessary.

Diary - October 4th 2022

Recently unexpected and uncontrollable things happened, and I've got a bit tired of " intercultural relations ".  However, " same cultural relation " is much more tiring to me.
Only my hope is ... the situation goes for a better direction.

最近、海外の友人との間にちょっとした誤解が生じて、気分的に、" 国際交流 " にちょっと疲れつつありますが、同国人だけと交流するのは、僕にとっては、もっと退屈なことなので、気を取り直して、英語力を更に高め、人間としての器も大きくするように努めたいと思います。

JALと稲盛さん

When I traveled by an airplane, the airline company was Japan Airlines (JAL).

When Japan Airlnes went bankrupt in 2010, president of Kyoto Ceramics Comapany Mr. Kazuo Inamori was appointed as the leader in the management reconstruction project.

and Japan Airlines revived in a surprising speed and its stock was re-listed in Tokyo Stock Exchange a few years. That day was my birthday.

Mr. Kazuo Inamori finished his 90 years of life on August 24th 2022.

I would like to respect that Mr. Inamori lived his life to the fullest with full-energy and honesty.

初めて乗った飛行機が日本航空(JAL)でした。
あの赤い鶴のマークを見ると、心がなごみます。
日本航空の経営が傾いた時、経営再建の舵取りを任されたのが京都セラミックスの会長・稲盛和夫さんでした。
わずか3年程でJALは驚異的に再生し、東京証券取引所にJALの株が再上場されたのは、僕の誕生日。

そんなこともあり、JALと稲盛さんには親近感のようなものを感じるのですが、稲盛和夫さんの90年の人生が完結したとのニュースを聞いて、ちょっと寂しく思います。フルエナジーで誠実に生きられた90年だったと思います。日本の翼を救ってくれた稲盛さんに感謝。

Fried shrimp bowl - summer 2022

Hello, how was your Obon summer holiday ?
The photo is a fried shrimp bowl my friend in Tokyo enjoyed in his summer holiday. The intense summer heat tends to decrease your appetite, but this seafood bowl will make you energetic.     
I'm glad that he had a relaxed holiday.

I hope all of you have a good start of the work week.

お盆休みが明けて、本日から仕事の方も多いと思いますが
皆さん、いかがお過ごしでしょうか?
写真は東京の友人がお盆休みに食べた海老フライ丼です。暑くて食欲も減退しがちですが、これを見ると元気が出ますね。
夏の後半が良いものでありますように。

In order to take my current English level to one stage higher, improvement of listening comprehension would be necessary. If my listening skill improves, I will be able to mimick expressions of native speakers. Also, for showing empathy and compassion as well, good listening skill is very important.
