Father's birthday

(a photo is uploaded. please check her official site)

I got an invitation to high school reunion. It says . . .

Te….10th anniversary ?!


So it's been 10 years already!

Never thought time would go by this fast.

It seems like I receive the invitation to reunion every year(^^;)

Is this how it goes? Aren't you gonna appreaciate it less if you met your classmates every year?

Is it also common to hold it every year in Japan?

Actually I've never attended it so far . . . I occasionally meet my friends whom I wanna meet, and I didn't have much chances to get myself concerned with the school deeply as the things went pretty crazy soon after I moved to this senior high and debuted.(・ε・` )

Every year the place of reunion is chosen by a questionnaire since the graduates are all scattered across different parts of the world. Most of the time the result ends up being devided in two, either US west coast or east coast. It was held in San Fransisco last year if I remember it right.

They say, this year it's to be held in New York! Then I might be able to make it! I feel kind happy about it!

I guess there should be some people who wold come all the way to the US from overseas . . . just for the reunion. Just how desperately they wanna reunion their classmates! (lol)

So perhaps it's held every year taking people living in different countries into consideration. Because you know, not many people would gather if it's held once every five years.

Hmmm so it's already been 10 years since I graduated from senior high~! It was just after I released "Wait & See ~RISK~." I was 17 years old!

In America you enter schools in September and finish them in June, so the time around now in summer gives me kind of sweet-sour feeling. Maybe in Japan you would feel this feeling in around early spring I guess. The excitement, high aspirations you get before you enter a college or start a new semester, and the sense of loneliness made by graduation. So many feelings come to my mind.

And after that . . . it's been a long 10 years I should say. _| ̄|○

It's been like, I juggled around here and there, following my interests, feeling my way, not caring about myself at all, without learning what it means to relate to others, what it means to take care of people around, having enjoyed lots of fun things with no responsibility nor reproach. I did well in business but matter of fact is I was running on the road to perdition . . . something like that, it was.

Woot, this looks pretty much like I enjoyed my youth doesn't it ! ! ! (Er, am I wrong on this? (lol))

Seems like my youth has lasted pretty long (lol) I mean, it seems like I've been a child for a long time.

I made some pretty grand statements in my book I released as the 10th anniversary of my debut, and I think I wrote them in a way like to shake off people around, and it was a selfish revealing.

I would like to face myself more level-headedly, grounded, with love, and interact with myself and people around.

Those thought come into my mind this summer, 27th summer for me.

What I've written above has nothing to do with this but today is my father's birthday.

Dad, happy birthday to you

Mother's birthday

(a photo is uploaded. please check her official site)

Today was my mother's birthday

I woke up early in the morning, at 5.30am

Hopped on the train

to go to the Chiba Park

to see Ooga lotus

which is desinated as a natural treasure, known as "the world's oldest flower"

all alone - - - - - ! ! !

Yaaaaaaaaay ! ! !
“(`(エ)´)ノ彡☆ !!

It's been a loooooooooooooong time since I last took a train in Tokyo! All alone! All the way to Chiba! Woot!

. . . Huh? Did you say "All alone"? (and excited that much . . . ?!)

Y, yes . . . all alone . . .

Cause . . .I happened to learn the blooming of Ooga lotus thing in Chiba Park on a TV news, and I happend to feel like going there to see it, and I happened to check it on the net . . . and I found out this Ooga lotus was to come into bloom at around from 6 to 7 am, then start to close at around 9am, so you gotta come to see it at 8am or so.

"Too early! (tough for musicians)" I thought, but I decided to go to Chiba by myself, thanks to my strange positive energy!

Actually it didn't have to be "all alone" but . . . say . . . whom could I ask to come with me for such a thing . . ._| ̄|○

Well I've got a couple of friends I could ask, but do you dare to ask this to them?! Or if you were them do you wanna be asked such a thing ?!

Would you dare to meet me at the station at 6.30am to go all the way to Chiba just to see a lotus?!

If I were my friend,

I would respectfully decline the offer ! ! ! (lol)

So. I went out on a petit solo journey.

That was really fun(●^口^●)

The Ooga lotus, this ancient flower woke up from 2,000 years sleep and came into bloom. Looked pretty elegant and beautiful.

A flower's life is short, but a plant's life is unmeasurable. Greatness of life~! Greatness of seed~!

A bug's life and a human's life, they don't make much difference . . . this morning just before I left my house I encounted a roach in the bathroom. I screamed around like "Aaaaaaaghh" "Awww" "Y, Yarrr!! I'm sorry! Sorry!!!" and killed him . . . I feel guilty. I couldn't help but feel I gotta kill them every time I find them, but come to think of it I might not need to kill them actually . . . but but what if they arrived in large numbers? . . . if only I had the skill to catch them and let them loose into the balcony . . .

That's what I was idly thinking on that day in the morning. Surrounded by lots of old men and women who came to see Ooga lotus . . .

Every time I have a close look at a lotus it makes me think "how big it is!" Perhaps you can't get its fineness through this photo but anyway the flower looks beautiful, isn't it(´▽`)

So. What I wrote has nothing to do with this but

Mom, happy birthday to you
