The crystal grid of the period

This grid of rocks was placed in late October and left it unmoved until now.

I like rocks and minerals to collect and I like playing with them too.  I like making spontaneous grid with the stones picked up randomly.
This layout is one of them in which there are a couple of ‘unusuals’.

Unusual 1.  I have some rose quartz but I usually do not my first choice in playing.
However, for some reasons, I had got my head filled fully in rose quarts pink and gathered all rose quartz I have to place on the table.
I probably needed some graceful energy and rose quartz must be the best rocks holding those soft and graceful energy (in my opinion).

Unusual 2.  I generally keep the stone layouts for several days then deform them, but this one left my regular ‘rock spot’ in my lounge space over a month.

What impression do you have at them?

Do they click some sense in you?
Well, I feel the time to deform comes, I will finally start making a fresh layout with fresh mind tomorrow morning.
石好きな私はその時々の思いつきでクリスタル・グリッドを作り、自宅の居間の片隅に飾っています。このグリッドもその一つ。10月後半に突然柔らかいピンク色のイメージが浮かび、普段あまり選ばれないローズ・クォーツ達を中心に並べてみたものです。
通常であれば、数日でグリッドは解体されるのですが、今回だけは別。結局一月以上飾っていました。
様々なピンク色がありますが、ローズクォーツのそれはとても優しく柔らかいものです。
明日の朝このレイアウトとお別れして、全く違う新しいグリッドを作ることになりそうです。

People Crossing Over The Tram Rails

It’s been quite sometime since I put my last post on here.  

And unbelievably, there is only one month to go till the end of year 2019.  

New tram service ‘Light Rail Sydney’ seems to start this year, for the first time since they had stopped the tramway network service in 1961.

しばらくブログから遠ざかっていました。

早いもので今年もあと残すところ1か月ほど。

今年の締めくくりという事でしょうか、シドニーに新たな路面電車が開通する予定なのだそうです。

写真はシドニー・シティを縦断する、ジョージ・ストリートに設えれた線路とその上を歩く人々。

Thank you for stopping by.

Hint of spring

is just right next to you, leaving its scent on the nose.

You can see it even under the overhung rock platform at the corner of a local beach.

春は確実に来てる。寒くても確実にその匂いを感じる。

春はすぐそこにいる。小さな海岸の隅のせり出した岩肌の影にだって。

今日も素敵な一日を。

A driftwood ~ 流木 ~

…that’s laid on the beach i took a walk on the other morning. And

that inspired me more than just that.

It looks something living creature.

It may look even having a face that looks unhappy.

Where did you roll in from?

Now you are free from rough surf journey on the water.

Have a good rest.

Until you decide to roll off to the sea again.

Thank you for stopping by.

Basking in the frame

Peaking the relaxed ambience over the open window of an Italian cafe in Sydney.

坂の多いシドニーではこうした半地下のお店も見かける。特に旧い建物にそれが多い。

このイタリアン・カフェはいつも賑わい、この日も朝から活気に溢れていたので思わず一枚。窓枠の中は今日も美味しいコーヒーと楽しいお喋りで溢れていた。

An another winter morning

… that I witnessed as it began the day with this masterpiece, just spread in front of myself at the balcony.

Beautiful yet overwhelming.

I see this type of complex art painted over sky canvas more in winter season rather than summer.

And that morning assured me that this is why I like Sydney in winter season and I do not mind waking up in the darkness (well, mostly for my cats awaiting for breakfast..).

冬の朝、日の出前に起きるとこんな光景に遭遇する。空いう広大なカンバスに描かれた作品。見とれているその横からどんどん絵が変わっていく。

圧倒されるその美しさ。でもこんな贅沢に出会えるからシドニーの冬が好きなんだ。
