True Colors

イラストのせつつ、素直になりつつ、背筋をのばして前向いて・・・

February 2005

Are you having fun?

Hey! I'm tipsy now.
You know what? I have two days off!
Today I went to my daughter's school concert.
All the students appeared on the stage singing and playing instruments.
All the teacheres made an exhibition of themselves by dancing
"Matsuken-samba" to us.
I tried to find my students really hard and
they actually found me waving their hands.
I love "Matsuri-spirit", you know.
Take your fun where you can find it!

Things that fade away / 色あせるもの

joy.gifYou know what?
In autumn, leaves turn red to be back on form.
Red leaves, yellow leaves,
those are the real color, actually.

Things that you found preasure yesterday
often fade away in a while.
Hard-earned things often lose its allure.
All that means they're just showing their true colors.

Leaves fall in winter to take nurishment into their body,
and to reexamine and toughen themselves.

Who said that grey is no good?
Fun part is not yet started.

Because in spring everything will green up.
Just a little more patience you need.
Then you would be all set.

あのね、
秋に葉っぱが赤く変わるのは、本当の姿に戻ること。
赤い葉っぱ、黄色い葉っぱ、こっちが本当は本物なの。

昨日まで楽しかったことが突然色あせて見えるのは、
苦労して手に入れたものが、魅力を失ってしまうのは、
余計なものが剥げ落ちて、本来の色に戻ること。

冬に葉っぱが落ちるのは、体に栄養を蓄えるため。
じっくり自分を見つめなおして、強い体を作るため。

グレーがだめだなんて誰が言った?
これからが面白いはずなの。

春には準備万端整って、まぶしい緑に覆われる。
あと少しの辛抱。

What if... / もしも・・・

woman84-b.gifWhat if I'm not married.
What if I insisted on my career.
What if I have more than 3 kids.
What if I didn't move here.
Gee! I've made so many decisions up to this day.
My scale of preference has always been
"untroubled living conditions",
while dreaming about adventures.
Is my life too normal?
No. I'm having a lot of fun actually.
You know...a humdrum life could be dramatic.
I believe so in half of my mind and
imagine what if...in the other half.

もしも結婚していなかったらどうなってた?
キャリアウーマンになってたらどう?
3人以上子供がいたら?
ここに越していなかったら?
ずいぶんたくさん選んできたということね。
冒険したいって思っているくせに、
安全・安心な方を選んできたみたい。
ちょっと平凡すぎるかしら?
違う。結構これが楽しいのよ。
だってありふれた生活にもドラマはあるんだから。
そう信じる心半分、もしも・・・の心半分。

Odd Feeling

I find myself leaning on my desk staring at the PC monitor
when I have a spare moment.
I know this is odd but I feel more secure
with this mouse in my hand.
I even think I have my life in here.
Am I really OK?
I think so.
