感動😊卓球の絶滅危惧種発見!
Great!We founded the Endangered species of table tennis!

Practice playing table tennis this morning is more fun than usual.
I heard that a woman who came to TAO for work study stay since yesterday brought her own racket.I took her to the table tennis gym this morning.
Pen holder grip table tennis player is now an endangered species. Furthermore her racket has a short pimples ruber. She is just a living fossil.
Her swinging form looks so beautiful. We were so moved to see that.
今朝の卓球練習はいつもにまして楽しい。
昨日、TAO塾のワークスタディステイに来た女性がなんと自分のラケットを持参したと聞き、卓球場に連れてきたのだが•••
なんと彼女は、今や珍しいペンホルダーのラケットを持つ卓球選手だったのだ。言わば絶滅危惧種!しかも、表ソフトラバーを使っている女子選手なんていえば、もう生きた化石!(失礼)
皆、彼女の卓球フォームの美しさに感動!

故郷の偉人
The historical person in my hometown


I took some students from Kitakyushu city to the Kitazato Shibasaburo memorial museum this morning. He is famous for a medical scholar and bacteriologist.
Though we couldn’t see the top of mountain clearly today,you can see the beautiful view of Mt. Waita known as Oguni Fuji if it is fine.
Despite the merits and demerits of bacteriology, his achievement was great.

‘It is not good to only do research.
You should think about how to use it to help people.’
今朝、北九州市の中学生達を細菌学の医学研究者として有名な北里柴三郎の記念館に連れて行く。
今日は、雲がかかりハッキリ見えなかったが、晴れていれば小国富士とも呼ばれる湧蓋山を臨むことができる。
細菌学の功罪はあるにせよ、博士の時代的業績は偉大だ。
「研究だけをやっていたのではダメだ。それをどうやって世の中に役立てるかを考えよ。」(北里柴三郎)

50代という面白さ Fifties are interesting

50代という面白さ Fifties are interesting.

I went to Sakamoto Zenzo museum to see the exhibition entitled "Quotes of Mr. Zenzo."
There were many quotes based on his philosophy.
The words "I had decided that I had to learn the foundation until I was 50 years old" overlapped the words my father left to me and I was touched.
It might be a bit presumptuous to mention my father’s words together with those of world famous painter Zenzo Sakamoto.
Here are my father’s words; ”Don’t worry about your appearance until you get 50 years old, but concentrate on refining your mind. And, beyond the age of fifty, dress properly to correspond your personality.’
There are the following words, however, in the Analects of Confucius; “I understood my duty of life at 50.”, so perhaps there is a universal connotation about the age of 50.
「善三先生名言集」と題した展示会を観に、坂本善三美術館に行く。
彼の作品の背景にある思想を感じる珠玉の言葉が並ぶ。「私は50歳までは基礎を身につけなければならないと決するところがあった。」と言う言葉が、私の父の遺言に重なり心に響いた。
私の父は、こう言い残した。
「五十までは、身なりを構わず中身を磨け。でも、五十過ぎたら中身に見合う格好をしろ」
世界的画家の坂本画伯と父を並べるのには恐縮千万だが、論語に「五十にして天命を知る」という言葉がある。何か普遍的なものが50歳という年齢にあるのだろう。

汗びっしょり!I am all in a sweat.

I enjoyed practicing table tennis with my seniors and juniors of the Oguni junior high school table tennis club at “Oguni dome”gymnasium last night.

I had a very good sweat with them for the first time in a while. My shirt is soaked with sweat.Playing table tennis with good players takes a lot of sweat in a short time.

“Sweat” teaches us
“Don’t sweat the small stuff.” ha ha

小国中卓球部の先輩や後輩達と卓球練習。
久しぶりに小国ドームで気持ちのいい汗を流す。シャツは汗でびっしょびしょ。上手い仲間との卓球は短時間に大量の汗をかくことができる。

英語で「小さいことを気にするな!」を「小さいことに汗をかくな!」と表現するのは面白い。
