Use your creative mind.
















I did a watercolor demonstration in the last week watercolor class. I painted a simple mount Fuji. Also, I will do an another demonstration on the same subject one next watercolor class. Only this time I will paint it with a more creative way. Each student has to paint with their own creative idea, too.

One of my senior friends sold his house and moved to a senior apartment. It's a very nice place. I saw his new apartment today. It was a nice cozy place with a lot of light from the windows.

When I came back from a trip to Hollywood. I found a brown envelope in the mailbox. I opened it, there was an important application form. The person in charge told me to write and send this application as soon as it arrived.

I bought rice cakes at the Japanese food market. They are for the New Year dishe.
 

I love a zoni. Zoni is a New Year's dish with rice cakes and vegetables in a soy sauce based soup.
But this is the custom of Hokkaido where I grew up. Other part of Japan might use miso based soup.

Rain, rain, rain

















It was raining all night long last night.
Now, 7am, The rain is still falling.
It's going to be a depressing start this morning.
But I try to be happy. 
I do a laughing act in front of the mirror.
It comes with feelings.
Happy acting makes my heart happy.
And I start the day with a happy feeling.

What happen to,,,
















During a morning walk, sometimes I take some mails with me because there is a blue mailbox on the street where I walk.

This morning, I took two letters with me. But when I get there the mailbox wasn't there. What happen? I wonder. Then I saw a mark on the street corner where mailbox used to be.


Hey, someone stole the mailbox.

I came home on a midnight drive. It was an easy drive with extremely few cars. 
 Although it was a cold morning, I went to a nearby park to take a walk and tai-chi as usual.
