After today's Japanese class, David and I went to a Seattle center spontaneously.
And there were cultural music festival and some drummers and dancers played Brazilian music on a stage.
The Brazilian music was so powerful that David and I wanted to dance with cheerful rhythm.
The rhythm of drums were so great that we really love to listen to it.
And 5 ladies' dancers were so great that we really enjoyed watching it.
David and I started to move our body naturally with this powerful rhythm and many people looked enjoying it.
Some people danced with them and everyone looked so happy.
The Brazilian drums has a wonderful energy to let us feel happy and cheer up naturally.
David and I felt a little fatigue after our work, but we danced together with their music.
Anyway, we really had a nice feeling with a great Brazilian music and we are so happy to enjoy it together fortunately.
Also I had a nice Japanese class today and some new students came to join our Japanese class today.
I did my best as much as possible and I just want them to enjoy leaning Japanese language and culture with fun.
Today's class was the 3rd class of 3rd Season and it will continue the end of next month.
So I will do my best from now on and I want our students to feel nice energy with smile and laughter in our Japanese class more and more!!^^
Yesterday and today, it became nice weather with sunshine and warm temperature.
David sounds so happy when he called me during his work that he really loves to enjoy spring weather without rain.
And I felt so wonderful to enjoy great weather that I really love spring season the best in a year.
The weather forecast says that this spring will have more rainy days than usual spring, but I don't mind it at all.
Spring will bring me cheerful feeling with happy mode and I really enjoy these days of wonderful weather.
And I love to walk in a nature and spring is the best season to walk, I can feel...^^
Nature and wild animals look enjoying this warm weather and they can give me happy feeling anyway.
How is your spring season these days??
I wish that you will enjoy your spring season the best in your life with smile and love!^^
After rain yesterday, it became nice weather with sunshine today.
David said that it will be nice weather to this weekend and it will warmer than before like a spring.
I love spring season so much after long rainy winter in Seattle.
Especially, last winter was not so much rainy days but I miss warm weather.
So I was looking forward to welcoming spring in winter every year and the spring will coming day by day.
And it is getting warmer and warmer day by day and the daytime became much longer than before.
David and I really love to enjoy spring season every year to watch beautiful cherry blossom.
Sometimes I could find small buds of cherry blossom of some trees on road these days.
They looks waiting for blossom with warm weather, I can feel....
Anyway, spring season is coming so close to us that David and I am so glad to know that.
To enjoy each season in Seattle is our pleasure every year with smile...
I wish you will enjoy your spring with your favorite place as you want soon!^^
Today, David and I went to take a jacuzzi in a fitness club before our dinner time as usual as we do.
And one lady came to take a jacuzzi when we were in there and she started to talk to us.
Because a few days ago, we met her for the first time and we talked a little for a while.
So she knows us and we started to talk again about Yoga.
She is Yoga teacher, too.
We talked for a while and another man started to talk to us after the lady went outside of the jacuzzi.
David and I talked in Japanese and the man lived in Japan when he worked in a military in the U.S.A.
So he started to talk to us and David and I listened his story and David talked to him about his story, too.
Usually we take a jacuzzi about 30 minutes but we couldn't get out of the jacuzzi, because he kept talking a lot.
David looked tired of being in the jacuzzi so long that I said to him that we had better to go outside.
Finally we could get out of the jacuzzi after 35 minutes, it was long for us today.
The man was very nice person but David felt not good after he got out of the fitness club.
When David and I were in the jacuzzi, some strangers started to talk to us suddenly.
But too much talking in a jacuzzi let David feel to waste his life time.
To meet new & nice people is sometimes fun but sometimes it let me feel tired to listen to someone's life story.
Anyway, David likes to talk strangers but he wants to talk as his own pace, I can feel.
We had a nice time together but I am so sorry for David that he felt tired of too much time in the jacuzzi tonight.
We couldn't stop someone's talking during our conversation, so we need to focus on our own time in the jacuzzi, anyway...^^
Today, David has a holiday of his work.
And it is the due to pay our mobile phones' payment for next month.
Last week, he got a nice information about our payment of mobile phone to save the cost.
So he went to the store to change the payment by himself.
After he came back to home, he looked so frustrated that my mobile phone's company blocked to change the payment.
So David couldn't change the payment today and he felt that he wasted his holiday for 2 hours to finish this errand.
But I told him that he did his best so please let your frustration go from his mind.
He called our mobile phone's company to release my mobile phone's block and everything has done finally.
David looked so relieved to finish this errand in the end.
So I am so thankful for what he done for us, anyway....^^
To make self feel frustration is wast of our life time.
So we need to let the feeling go as soon as possible if we felt that.
To share how I feel to each other is important for communication of human beings.
Sometimes I like to be silence mode to face on my feeling inside deeply without talking to others.
But sometimes I like to share how I feel now to understand myself inside because to make my feeling into some words can make me realize how I was thinking before.
To keep my noble silence maybe make David worry about me sometimes but I say to him, "Don't worry about me too much, not talking too much is not problem for me at all."
But he wants to communicate more than me and he wants to know what I am thinking & how I feel every single day.
So keep silence to myself is not good for David at all but we are different human beings so I told him not to worry about me too much.
But he likes to talk anyone and he wants to talk a lot and for me, talking too much doesn't need for me sometimes.
So I told him during my silence, "You don't need to worry about me and just keep my space & time for a while." not to make him worry about me anymore.
He looks to worry about me sometimes so I need to let him not to worry about me too much.
So I try to communicate with him how I feel and what I think every day to live together with compassion & love.
But we have different opinion & thought so we tend to think how we are different from each other.
For me, each difference doesn't matter at all because we are different human beings to understand each other more and better.
I like to keep silence sometimes but David wants to talk more than I think.
But he can be patient until I want to talk about my feeling, so I am so thankful for his patience and generosity.
How do you feel today?
What are you thinking today???
I hope that you feel positive thinking inside of you every day as much as possible!!^^
Today's weather forecast was rain all day long and I didn't expect good weather today at all.
But after early morning rain, the weather became nice with sunshine & blue sky and it is windy a little.
And until this weekend, the weather forecast says "rain, cloud and rain" but I don't trust it at all.
Spring weather is very changeable like my emotion and I don't mind any weather at all.
I want to take a walk every day but only heavy rain cannot make me walking but I can enjoy walking even in a little rain.
Anyway today, I feel so much calm and stable inside of my heart at the begging of today but after I walked with David, I feel so much emotional heart inside.
I don't know what happened to my heart but I cried a little.
But after that, I felt so much clearer mind than before and I tried to forget my tears.
Like today's changeable weather, my mind is very changeable, too...so I don't think my mind too much anymore.
Anyway, today it let me feel spring weather with warmth and I am looking forward to watching cherry blossom soon.
Day by day, all cherry trees turned to red of small buds and they looks waiting for the timing of blossom.
In Seattle, many cherry blossom trees are planted on the road and it will make me happy to welcome new spring every year.
Especially, for me, this new spring means a lot to make my life be happier more and better.
Day by day, my emotional part of heart is changeable but i don't want to be emotional lady at all.
To observe my emotion with peace & rational mind can make me understand how I am feeling & thinking.
Not to involve myself in emotional status, I want to be peaceful lady without JUDGEMENT for everything around me.
How is your today??
I wish that you can enjoy your new spring season with peaceful heart & smile!!^^
After cold season in our life, always new & warm season will arrive at our life always & anytime...
Today is Valentine's day!
But I am not interested in chocolate to celebrate today at all.
Because to buy chocolate or some presents for Valentines' day seems the trick of economic influence.
To appreciate with my partner with LOVE is not only today but also every day for me.
So I don't want to do anything at all for Valentine's day like others do.
To celebrate today as special as I can feel is important for me.
Because no one day is not the same day of others in my life.
To make TODAY be special let our marriage life be happy always and forever.
Anyway, I don't mind if others enjoy Valentine's day today at all, so I wish that you will have a wonderful time with LOVE & smile as you want.
I am so thankful for DAVID as he is because his love can always make me happy and heartwarming every day.
I hope that your LOVE will expand for your precious people around you with peace, anyway....^^
Yesterday, David's elder brother sent aunt's movie which is made by our great friend for her funeral service this Saturday.
His brother asked David to check it out before service and we watched it together in this morning.
The movie was so great made by our wonderful friend that we couldn't stop crying with a lots of tears naturally.
All movies are filled with her great life of family's & friends' photos and David's Mom & Dad were there, too.
I imagined that his aunt has a great life with pleasure & love until her death last week.
And we shared our tears together with this great movie.
Tears can purify our heart naturally and we didn't need to stop our tears as they went out of our eyes.
After we watched her movie, David went to work with smile and I started to cook by myself.
I thought a lot about his aunt because we met her at the hospital just before day of her death.
But now she is not alive in this world and I cannot believe this reality still now.
I realized how great she lived her life for 76 years and now she can see David's MOM in heaven, I believe.
Anyway to memorize someone who passed away is precious time for us with peace.
Dead relatives cannot come back to this world but they are always living in our heart deeply.
And also I remember my grandfather, grandmother and grand-grandmother who I lost of my family in JAPAN, but their love is always with my heart.
Anyway....David & I need to move on with strength & peace from now on.^^
We are going to his aunt's funeral service with his family and today's our tears with her movie maybe the rehearsal to cry...><
It was very cold in this morning and today's forecast says "it will snow in the evening."
But the sunshine came out from the sky in this morning and I can feel so much clear mind after enough sleeping.
Last night, David came back to home later than usual so I couldn't keep awake until he finished talking about his day.
But I did do my best yesterday to cook him "BIBINPA" dinner to let him relieved his fatigue.
And he really loved it with smile and he didn't want to finish the dinner.
So he ate so slowly that he wanted to keep eating as slow as possible.
But I wanted to sleep after he ate his dinner but he looked very exciting after dinner & 1 day of work before sleeping.
I couldn't keep awake enough for David but finally we started to sleep together.
After we woke up together in this morning with nice sunshine, we started to meditate & walk together.
These our routine can make us feel better than before to start our NEW DAY.
So we will keep doing our routine even it is snowing outside.
To start new day is precious time how precious we can feel & think to share with each thought.
Outside of this world like a CHAOS but we can keep our mind in peace as well as possible.
But our mind in peaceful status can not be destroyed by anything & anyone if we can keep it in our heart like our sanctuary.
So I like to YOGA, Meditation and walking to keep my mind in peace & positive way every day.
Anyway today it will snow in the evening but I want to enjoy this cold weather with David.
With his love, my heart can keep always warm with tenderness so I don't feel anything bad in this world.
In winter season, there are so much snow in this world but let's keep our mind with warmth of LOVE & SMILE as much as possible.
Our mind & heart can let us feel happy & warm by our efforts easily...^^
