Bye Bye Thank you

Wake up late morning, actually after 2. When is today? Sunday?
My mind was confusing because they are allowed to use just half parts and function.
There is nothing to do, nothing to make me interest. It makes me decay.
My half mind remembered my appointment, to meet host parents and return the house key.
My half body tried to stand up, still hard to be a man for him.
Concentrate to my leg...Please stand up, my leg!! Please work my brain!

Having two chocolate muffins helped me come back to real life.
But in the train I was still in the another world.
My body seemed to be other one's. My mind was the next guy's.
Why am I in the train? Only two muffins could connect me with real life.
If I were not eating something, I would forget what I do from now.

Like the dead I walked the way to my host house...7minutes and 11seconds.862steps.
My body remember this three months; I walked this road every day.

My host father was washing his car in the garage wearing his favorite cap.
My host father was watching TV wearing the same red clothes.

I got two envelops and returned the key.
I do not like their house because they have too strict rules for me.
But at the same time I also knew only this key can connect me with them.
If I returned this, our relation would finish forever.
I paid $350 for just one night...I did not go home on December.
I prefered to stay my friend's apartment.
There was free and relaxation in his place.
But I know there is no rule here...No progress.
Now I think my host parents provided me the strict but orderly rythm.
However, I ran away from them after all.

When we said good bye, my father holded out his hand.
I shook his hand with my both hands
and appreciated him and this meeting with my all heart.

Blowing wind was comfortable for me.
I may not come back here, but they finally said to me.
"If you have some troubles, anytime call us."
They are my parents...I think in my mind..athough I could not tell them directly.

Walking the way to my new place, I decided to be a man, reliable man.
I remembered my purpose to be in Canada. Be a man, who never lose anyone on writing.

Winter of '04

This year 2004 would be the year that let me change dramatically.
Many events remind me and makes me smiling.
From Kyoto in New Year 2004 to Vancouver in Ner Year 2005
How far is it? How much could I change?

Recently, I often listen to the Japanese songs.
A song has each story and memory for me.
Therefore, the songs remind me precious memories in Japan.
Sometimes I listened to "Bye Bye Thank you" , and whenever I listen,
I remember the last day in Japan we sang together.

Wheen I close my eyes, I can go back to Shizuoka in one moment.
I am riding Benry with Hitomi's Towny.
I remember where we visited together.
I remember where we were, Casa Hijiri Mineta 201.
I remember with who we were, my best friends.
I remember each street and shop in Shizuoka we passed everyday,
although I have no sense of direction and am so bad at memorizing where shop are.

And I always find it that My hometown is here, Shizuoka, my best place.
Boku no Basyo ha koko nannda

However, I am, of course, building my road in Canada everyday.
I met many new songs and memories here; each song helps me to create new world for me.

From September, I was running at full speed, so I might fail to see many things.
But the only one thing I can confirm is,
when I look back the road behind me, I can see the road is connecting to Japan, you and I.

That's why I can be here with no trouble.
...Daijyobu...Dakara koko de mimamotteite

Loong time no see

About 1 month I had no touch on this blog. So sorry about that.
I need to say much, but I do not how to say all.
In this semester I took 4 courses (Reading&Writing&Speaking&Listening)
and passed all courses.
Actually I really enjoyed my last presentation on Speaking class.
Before I said or not said, my group composed one original song"maple reaf"
and performed in front of my classmate and my friends that we invited.
My teacher really liked our performance.
We recorded our presentation, so I wanna rerecord and send to Japan to show you.
We also played our host families' christmas party and got many wonderful reflections from audiences.
Now it must be our theme song for us.
From that events, I am really interested in composing music or writing lirycs.
If I can, I wanna show new lyrics in this blog.
Anyway, now it is winter vacation until Jan.4.
I have to spend time usefully but could not do that now.
Be nice man!! Have a great day.
