Mumbling

I found of myself wanting to hang my art pieces in my place, to ‘exhibit’ them for the first time in years.

I have been doing drawing on going basis, but I had not thought of my works placing  somewhere visible, because, what’s more important for me to do the drawing is to get something I got in my head out in some form.  Once it was out, my interest moves on something next and I rarely come back to the old outcomes.  I don’t know hence what drives me wanting to ‘exhibit’ my stuff even at my place.

Something alters in me gradually somewhere in my mind, I guess.  I can not trace.

It must be a sign, a good sign, I guess, of being capable for self-acceptance.

Or it must be a good sign of building a form of self-confidence.

Or maybe neither.

Or maybe both.

Well, let’s stop thinking for now, and just go and get a small frame for it in stead…  🙂

A piece of work of the day 13

Since a couple of days ago, a sort of image flashed in my head and I urged to push it out.  So today was a kind of perfect day for it.  Outside was fair which was ok for a Sunday, but it was not that good because of that heavy wind blown all day and which annoyed me enough to get out.

…Ok, ‘something’ in my head was got out.

Not sure if the outcome was really after as I had imagined.

Not sure where this piece could mark as complete or could develop further.

The below is a snapshot of my work in progress.

A complete work has been uploaded on Facebook  and Instagram, so it will be more than appreciated if you could take additional seconds to quickly peek in!

Good bye 2017

This day has come.  2017 is coming to closing.

2017 brought me various endings and beginnings, something old walked away and something new came into my life.

Early the year, I have lost my father, and a few people got out of my life as well.  It was a little tough period in the year to run through, I got a bit damage on health and mental also.

However, I got good encounters too.  I have met great people and got new friends as well.  I was struggled with making myself open toward outside (or public) my mind earlier, but I’d highlight that I have got support from someone / something regardless as to whom / that I know of.

That I have started the blog in September, is a part of the exercise to get myself open and do some output and share what I think, what I feel and so on.

Photography has been my least channel for the output to express myself through the lenses, to share the way how I see the world.  Camera and lenses were always with me like the buddy.  I threw them in Instagram.

Now I have here, this WP community as well.

I believe myself coming back finally.  I am back with stronger and resilient mind to face and handle things better.

I appreciate all of you who stopped by my blogs and even appreciate more for those who marked likes and comments to share your heart with me.

I appreciate all of you who follows me to put me in a part of your networking radar.

Wishing you all a happy 2018.  🙂

ブログを書くにあたって – Mixed language, mixed identity

Ok, so my first blog has been pushed.  I wrote it in Japanese as it is my native language.  But sometimes I feel English is easier or better to express what or how I have got in mind even my English is relatively poor particularly in vocabulary!

I am in Australia over ten years and I have been inspired and experienced tons of stuff, all of which are values.  But even now I am sometimes reminded that my root is Japan in many occasions I get in my day to day life.

On the other hand, once I take a holiday and go to Japan, I found myself be getting off from the manner or pattern that Japan / Japanese follow, and I see myself being fit and comfortable with Australia.

Once I had had felt that I have no home to go mostly due to such reason.

Now I rather enjoy this because I feel I am more free from any grouping or category (sort of..)  :-).

So I will run my blog in either language in responding to how I feel when I write.  🙂

 

 

私の初ブログ – A part of my exploring journey

今これを読んでくださっている方々へ。初めまして。私を見つけてくださりありがとうございます。

これまで、ブログは人様がつぶやきや思いを文章で表現したものを読むものという感覚でいました。ブログの形式は様々ですが、これまで私はブログに対して強い関心がありませんでした。自分の思うことを何もいちいち人に見てもらいたいものか、などと斜に構えていた部分もあります。

ところが、。。!

今こうして自らがブログをはじめるべく、キーボードと格闘しております。

はて、何故ブログを始めようと思ったのか?

ここが大きな疑問。

何を書きたいのか?

不明。。。(苦笑)

誰かに伝えたいのか?あるいは、みんなに知って欲しいのか?

。。。

これらの答えは何一つありませんが、ひとつ言えるのは、これは自己探求のひとつでやや実験的な試みであるということ。

私はこれまで自分を表現することをとても苦手としてきていました。何が好きで何が嫌いで今はどんな気分で何が得意で等をパッと伝えたり表現したりする事ができずにいました。

幼少期から絵が好きで、イラストや漫画を書いていたので、私自身は全く意識した事もありませんでしたが、おそらくその頃は絵を介して自己表現をしていたのかもしれません。でも大人になるにつれ絵を描く事からも疎遠になり、なんと縁あって40も半ばを過ぎてから再び少しづつ描き始めたという次第です。

文章力や表現力も稚拙ですし、長文も苦手ですがひとまず今、私の身近な趣味であり表現方法でもあるかもしれない写真や絵を通じて、自分を「出す」ということをテーマに始めて見たいと思います。
