Cahier: Keep Gradual Improvements Stacking Up

The same as ever, I keep reading some books in English, and "The alchemist" written by Paulo Coelho is one of them that I have been reading lately, that impressed me in many ways. Reading the novel, I feel that it resembles partly each of …

Cahier: Interpreting the Old Map, We Should Make the New One

Recently, I have been reading two books by turns. One is "Mate: Become the Man Women Want" and another is "The Story of Doctor Dolittle" which was my favorite book when I was a kid. They might seem very different from each other, and it's …

Cahier: Education Resisting Against the Fate

Cahier: A Fragment On Recent Days

久々に日本語で文章を書いている。2021年の正月から思い立って英語の勉強を始め、主として関心のある洋書をひたすら読むという余り特筆すべき工夫のない方法論に固執して、分からない単語や文法は随時調べながら、実践至上主義の建前で進めている。ブログの…

Cahier: Summarizing Creatures

It seems to me that the word Abstract has two definitions opposed to each other. One meaning is Vague, and another is Essential. If we don't define strictly what meaning the word has each time we use it, our conversation about the idea of …

Cahier: The Colorful Ethics

The more the intelligence of my daughter has grown up, the more often she uses indecent, dirty words, so that my wife's face tends to be darkened by concern. No doubt, decency is one among the most important virtues, and I can agree with h…

Cahier: Meaning / Feeling

Ever before, I have been told by so many people that I'm a cool-headed man. My current wife has the same opinion about my personality. Sometimes, I would become badly cold, behave so indifferently, and especially when I concentrate on crit…

Cahier: A Man Who Is Indifferent

Sometimes I have felt myself get in a self-destructive tendency no matter whether it may indicate a negative meaning or not. I think that the hostility towards an unfavorable part of self causes such a phenomenon. An intense, persistent cr…

Cahier: Parallel Reading and Untiring Efforts

Other day, I conceived an idea named Parallel Reading. It's not a complicated concept, rather its meaning is quite simple. Until now, I have always read books one by one, not simultaneously because I would want to concentrate on each conte…

Cahier: My Social Resurrection

Over the latest ten days, I have suffered from COVID-19 and have been home to recover. As a result, my wife and daughter have been ordered to stay home too. This morning, my daughter began to attend her primary school a week later than oth…

Cahier: Who Cannot Be Named Precisely

Yukio Mishima was a strange man. He was a prominent writer of aesthetic, ironic and cruel tales, and who had a radically conservative thought about political issues of Japan in those years. He was as famous as known widely all over the wor…

Cahier: Just Like Stalactites

Time doesn't know any halt. Even when we are doing nothing, it keeps moving constantly. Our normal life seems unchanging in general, but just like the current state of Ukraine, hidden changes are always sneaking around, and gradually getti…

Cahier: The Eternal Discord

All over the world, there are various kinds of conflicts since the ancient age. We all have some thoughts that are different from others in general, and they include each own belief in many ways. Naturally, what I believe is not necessaril…

Cahier: Searching For Hidden Theorems

People want social values such as honor, power, property, high status, and affectionate bonds with others. Surely, desire is necessary for us to be active, positive, and alive consistently. Even if it's true that we are so greedy that we a…

Cahier: Craving For Someone Who Let Me Express Myself

I think almost everyone wants others to hear them explain something about themselves. It seems one among our primitive instincts. We usually want to share each internal phenomena with confidential people. Such phenomena as feeling, emotion…

Cahier: Admittedly, It’s a Blessed Evidence of Her Firm Growth

My daughter will be admitted to a primary school next spring. It feels like an instant to me that she has grown to a little girl, no longer been a baby. In Japan, they say that an attribute of a human soul is established at the age of thre…

Cahier: A Long Distance to the Conclusion

Recently, I still have kept reading the book "Factfulness: Ten Reasons We'Re Wrong About The World - And Why Things Are Better Than You Think" little by little. It's quite interesting for me to peruse a succession of clear sentences on fam…

Cahier: Seeking What I Can Do Right Now

It's always an important and valuable thing to begin something new, that we haven't ever done. About two weeks ago, my daughter started to learn swimming. It's not what her parents suggested. On the contrary, she herself stated abruptly th…

Cahier: Keep Awake Unless the World Falls Asleep

Surprisingly, this year will be over soon. At the time of its beginning, I planned to learn English and now I'm keeping the habit persistently. Gradually, width of my vocabulary extending, my knowledge of grammar growing enriched, I believ…

Cahier: On the Nihilistic Agony

Cahier: Autumn Utopia, Another Universe

Last week I had a trip to Sendai and Akiu-Onsen, where at the latter I enjoyed both viewing a lot of red leaves in autumn mountains and soaking in a famous hot spring, with my family for three days. Fortunately, the number of COVID-19 pati…
