Weekly Photo Challenge: Cheeky


Common children shall be naughty. It’s a sort of raisin d’être (reason to be) and I seemed to be a sort of their reason to play a joke especially during my overseas trips. Many years ago I was at a middle of a ski slope just under a chair lift. Holding a snowboard I was climbing a steep, actually gentle, hill in a winter resort of Canadian Rocky Mountains for my first experience of snowboarding. Yes, it was the first experience for me. When I looked up the sky to pause for catching breath, a small boy above me spoke to me from his chair
“Why don’t you take a lift? Good luck!”
Ok, thank you. I was a beginner and I didn’t come up with any smart thing to say in English. At least it was lucky for me that I didn’t find cheeky words, neither.

A Tree


Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
– Warren Buffett
– ウォーレン・バフェット

It is really good words but the next quote sounds easier somehow for me.

People don’t remember each tree in a park but all of us benefit from the trees. And in a way, artists are like trees in a park.
– Yoko Ono
– オノ・ヨーコ

At a serene park. (The 2nd contribution to WPC:Serene)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene


Calm but couldn’t say ordinary, peaceful and slightly noble somehow. Serene might be a difficult word to use for non native English speakers like me. Probably I could say serene weather instead of fine but it sounds me strange. I don’t say I can’t find any proper word in my mother tongue (“うららか” might be good translation). You know it is not always easy to understand translate words.
A bit dim room open to a bright backyard tells serene afternoon.
