水のないスイミングプール。 服でも音楽でも性別や年齢関係なく好きなの着て、好きなの聴けばいいと思う。 男とか女も関係ないし年齢重ねてもフリフリ着て最高に可愛い田村セツコさんとか本当にすてき。 性別や年齢で服を決めるなんてつまらない。 自分らしさが重要なのでは? 洋楽がお洒落とか日本の音楽はカッコ悪いとかもヘンなのー。私は昭和歌謡曲と及川光博と石崎ひゅーいが好きだけど服でも音楽でも自分が心地良ければいいと思う。 #金沢21世紀美術館 #スイミングプール #21stcenturymuseum #金沢 #旅行に行きたい #服装の自由 #音楽も自由 #自分らしく #生きたい

【2262日目 3.11と愛猫の四十九日】 11/03/2020 day2262. . 【I think my cat has traveled to heaven,and Remember the disaster nine years ago】 March 11 is a special day for Japanese. "The day" I was working as usual. The confusion after that was very tough because my brother lives in Fukushima…. . By the way, it's been seven weeks since my cat died. It is believed that the dead in Japan are determined to go to heaven or fall to hell seven weeks after their death.. . Today I believe my cat has traveled to heaven……😿So today I drank a special matcha while thinking about the Great East Japan Earthquake and my cat. . あの日から9年です. あの瞬間は、お店の店頭にいたなぁ. 兄が福島に住んでいたので、その後の混乱は凄まじく体感しましたね. . そして、個人的なことを言いますと、本日20200311は、愛猫どらきちが亡くなってから49日目でした. 実は、どらが亡くなってからどうしても早朝に目が覚めるようになり、この7週間で僕は朝型生活にすっかりとシフト. どらは、いまから天国にいってるとこかしらね. 3.11と、どらへの手向けと思い天目茶碗とお花のお菓子、猫ちゃんもそえて. どらを火葬する日以来、お濃茶を練りました. 合掌. . ♦︎菓子♦︎ 金沢うら田 “桜花” @urata_kanyoudo Kuroneco jack お抹茶jack @kuronecojack ♦︎詰め♦︎ 茶舎觀壽 利楽 @mikoto_teahouse ♦︎茶碗♦︎ 天目茶碗 森山邦応 ♦︎菓子器♦︎ 魚津悠 @uozu . . . #高橋どらきち #ネズミの香合には遺骨#毎朝手を合わせる
