Calligraphy lesson

I take Japanese calligraphy lessons twice a month.
My teacher gives me some examples of penmanship, an epistolary style, Waka poems with Kana characters, and a Haiku poem with creative harmonies style, and I imitate and learn them.
The kana poems are taken from the Hyakunin Isshu and Kokin Waka Shu which are very old Japanese poem books and it is fun to read the variant kana and look up their meanings.

Haiku poems are made by my teacher, who then creates them into a harmonic work of art.
The other day, she wrote the Haiku after the death of her dog, but I felt sad, so I tried to arrange it in my own way.

It is very difficult for me to explain about Japanese culture and arts.

The knitting lesson

One of my best friends Yasuko invited me to the knitting class.
Four members gathered at her shop and taught and learned knitting each other.
It was a very interesting time for us.
Knitting is good for senior people like us, using our fingers and brains.

Good times.

I made two motifs,and I was completely tired and exhausted .

I have a black simple bag, and attached the knitting motifs on it.

Simple bag became a special and the only one. 
Well done!

It is quite hard for me to show my opinion in English.

My English teacher Brian read my latest blog and checked it out.
He’s very kind, polite and careful.
Here are my original version and his revised version. 
It is quite hard for me to show my opinion in English._a0098418_22100237.jpg
I made mistakes with spelling, capital letters and lower case letters, and used articles incorrectly.
I have to brush up my English.
A bad point about my English is the way of writing. 
I use the sentence, like,
I do something and I have something and I did something.
Starting the sentence from I again and again might not wrong grammatically, but it is not sophisticated, or matured.
I see.
I will try to write more natural and well considered sentence.
I'm not sure if I'm conveying the meaning correctly, so, I am going to write my thoughts in Japanese,too.
Brian ,if you had a time, would you please check my sentence ?


あたしの英会話の先生のブライアンが、ブログの英語記事について添削推敲してくれた。
めっちゃ親切で丁寧な添削、ありがとう。
私のオリジナルの文章とブライアンの直してくれた文章。
スペル間違えたり、大文字小文字間違えたり、冠詞の使い方も間違えてる。
もっと注意深く見直さないとな。
あたしの、書きっぷりで、まずいのは、何度も、あたしがどうした、こうした、と、あたしで始まる文章が繰り返されること。
文法的には間違えてないけど、洗練されてないし、なんか子供っぽい。
なるほどな、もっと、自然で、洗練された文章書かないとな。
この複雑な文章、あたしの拙い英語でわかってもらえてるかどうか不安なので、日本語訳も書き添えておきます。
ブライアン、時間あったら、添削よろしく〜😊
あたしなら、英語でこう表現するという意見ありましたら、コメント欄に、よろしくお願いします。

To live my life peacefully and happily.


I gave up my job last year,
The reason was that 
I have gotten too old to work at my liquor shop completely with my some hobbies.
My hobbies are 
Yoga
Tennis 
Calligraphy 
English conversion 
Piano and Vocal.
Each of them is just for fun and wasting time for me.  
I am a very bad tennis player, for a long time,
I can’t bend my back, or spread my legs wide, on the Yoga time.
As for the Piano, I have not improved my skills compared with the 10 years before.
Vocal lesson is almost the Karaoke time.
But I am satisfied with those.
And two years ago,my sister in law had a problem with her backache and she couldn’t work at the standing bar, so I entrusted my desk work for the accounting job to her, and I became a staff for a part time job with less salary.
It is a very good decision for me.
I don’t have any responsibilities about our business.
Very relux and relieved.
Now, I work for our company, preparing food  helping, cleaning for the standing bar .
I am very happy that I am helpful and useful and not stressful.
This is what I want to do.
Today, many customers came to our standing bar, and we were quite busy.
But we were very happy that the customers enjoyed their time at our place.

To live my life peacefully and happily._a0098418_22310692.jpg
It is a time for us around 65 after a retirement to think about our life.
