After school, kids played in the schoolyard until nightfall the last minute.
The sandwiched schoolyard that was between the skyscrapers is too small.
But I envied their figure that had so much fun for just chasing the ball.
I was almost freezing to watch them at the bench.
After it starts the winter time, they can not play at the yard after school.
"Only a little more, just a little more."
Time of precious night has become shorter.
It was the Labor Day Holiday that tells "the end of summer."
After this day, autumn comes doing to accelerate.
The summer vacation will be over the families who spent the summer in

Early fall of sea breeze, went stroked my hair softly.
Last week, the temperature was 31 degrees Celsius.
This morning, it was 11 degrees Celsius.
In this cold, strong air-conditioned subway worked in New York.
I have been sick, and I'm still feel uncomfortable at breathing.
Today I asked this child to work instead of me.
And even though I have taught it many times, it cannot return to the base
by stuck in the same place.
I love this stupid kid as if I looking at myself.
There are no perfection, for human beings and machinery.
Just 40 minutes by car from Manhattan.
We were invited to a private beach in Long Island.
Located along the sandy beach, there are log houses and shower, and
And though it was simple facility like a "sea of houses" in Japan,
Elegant time was flowing in the space where only members who had season
As soon as the severe cold winter was over, spring has passed so quickly.
Suddenly summer has begun from the date after Memorial Day,
People act in the outdoors for looking for sun.
I'm sure to be "regret absolutely later",
But here, I would be caught up with the culture that sunburn is social status.
I was happy with new swimsuit and sandals, favorite book.
Blazing sun had already showed a face of midsummer.
You walk from Seventh Avenue to the east after you go out on the ground
from the 57th Street subway station NQR line.
The steeple stands as snuggle Carnegie Hall in front of the eyes.
What is the heck it?

that the building is to be a spire,
And you will be surprised when it gradually will get thickness.
When viewed from the front, it is obvious that it is a triangular prism of
At the center of so high land prices Manhattan,
To design in this shape is amazing.
For the word "tricky" that means of better or worse, is exactly appropriate
for this building.
There is a gap when viewed from here or viewed from there.
I feel it seems to look at the human inner surface.
National holiday is fewer in the United States.
Compared to Japan that has New Year holidays and the Bon vacation,
in addition of a lot of holidays,
Americans work much better than the image from the outside.
It was a precious consecutive holidays.
The day before the Memorial Day that called "the beginning of the summer",
We had BBQ party at Prospect Park in Brooklyn this year.
Blessed with good weather, we enjoyed the refreshing wind.
After a long time, I lay down on the ground, and I looked up at the big sky.
I compare the life of people in four seasons.
10-20 generations is spring that new life sprout.
30-40 generations is summer that solar energy overflowing.
50-60 generations is autumn that say harvest of life.
70s and later, while enjoying the culmination of life, is winter we spend quietly.
While I try to pleasure now that I am still in the season of summer,
I think to greet the time of fulfilling fruitful.
As I am surrounded by plenty of the spring,
I feel the greatness of nature.
Perhaps because it was too cold, or probably there was no place where
I spit the stress.
This winter, I gained excess fat in mind and body.
I tried a three-day juice detox.
From morning till night, I spent a day with six bottles of juice.
I did not feel hunger, but I was getting cold hands and feet, I could not
The moment I went to shallow sleep, I got a nightmare.
I did not find out the resolution of clues, then I greeted the morning while
It was the morning of day 4.
Among the people who turn a blind eye to, I cannot keep the justice.
I decided to take the right way that I believed.
Towards the spring, I will take off a heavy coat.
If I have the courage to move forward, I can see the justice that surely
leading to future.
My mother has been a teacher of tea ceremony.
Her disciples in kimono have come to my home so often.
Compare to my mother who wear kimono again and again in a month,
the opportunity that I wear a kimono is very less.
But when there was such opportunity, I felt my spine was stretched
I have to tell more to the world, about Japanese traditional arts, traditional
I know you had troubled for another pretty long time.
Though we have been away routinely for enormously long time, we also
have known that human nature had not so different from the time we met
I understood a serious determination with your words "Give me your support."
Just when I promised to support with full force, it was happened, such as if
it was waiting for that time.
To you who always send me a sky report.
I wonder what I can do for you.
Because I have promised to cheer you at best forever, I was grateful we met
together in our life.
The rime was sparkling in the morning.
It looked like the cherry trees in bloom in the cold winter in New York.
There are some paintings in the living room.
They are not at all uniformity, but the works memories are jammed in each.
I have some New York painting in New York, because it reminds me
the uplifted feeling at the scene.
If you use the taxi with your client in New York, you ride ahead first is
At the era of bad security, there were the multiple kidnapping by taxi.
You should ascertain the safety by riding ahead.
It is true reverse of Japanese courtesy; men ride earlier than women,
and the subordinates ride earlier than the boss.
I felt little discomfort before, but it has become my common sense now.
New York yellow cab is very famous by it's bad manners in the world.
Recently, by the breakthrough of UBER and green cab, its reputation
worsens more and more.
But New Yorker use them as their feet.
We have large traffic jam with the yellow cab in Manhattan today.
The city where it is very difficult to catch the empty taxi would be the top
class in the world.
Among the everyday life, there is little to see the TV.
On weekdays, from the early morning to the late-night, I don't have time
such as to relax in the living room.
On weekend, in round-trip to suburb of New York Upstate, I am far from
the life and civilization of equipment.
However, only for this few days, I put the power of television, and had heard
often the weather forecast.
"The massive blizzard could cover the city in more than 2 feet of snow."
From any channel, break news was broadcast.
There was a possibility that hit the observation history largest storm snow.
Before it came, New York government declared a state of emergency and urged
New Yorkers to stay home.
It was an eerily quiet night.
The wind exiting the city became increasingly strong and the town was engulfed
in white smoke.
At midnight, while I was listening to the sound of the wind, I looked at the
downstairs from home windows.
I was attacked by a strange feeling.
In the blizzard, the process that the city became in pure white looked so beautiful.
The eastern sky became whiten.
Even if there is anything, the morning comes every day.
Snow plow lights illuminated the road.
Although subway and bus has still suspended, there was figure walking on the road.
The city began to move quietly.
Last fall, as I viewed in the magazine, I was fallen in love with a down jacket.
Even though the products were outgoing by the United States LA, the down jacket was sold only in Japan.
Probably, in the warm California, the down jackets were not selling items.
One of my friends, looked for it nationwide, sent me the last one.
I thanked for her kindness that I imagined a figure she boxed it in between
work, though she was busy mom of twins.
The coldness of New York is terrible even this winter.

Under the favorite down jacket, even dressed the Ultra-down and HEATTECH,
Sense of limbs was little.
It is not possible to take a deep breath, my lung was painful.
Commuting in the morning and evening, I felt the danger of my life.
