One thought on “10/2/08 Agenda

  1. Only 8 people attended this week.
    Jr. Kaz couldn’t make it, so, I’ll try to compile each speech this week. By Hiroshi

    English:
    Speech#1. “Water Rafting” by Katoko
    Taking about her family’s rafting trip in Colorado.
    Her 9 year’s grand childrens realized the basic living of human being, “eat/drink/sleep/eliminate” and nothing else.

    Wow, that’s fantastic experiment for them and for their grand mother seeing their growing.

    Speech#2 “Today is the best of life” by Naoki
    He has been trying a lot of things to improve his life. The earlier phases were good, he was enjoying it. But, the challenge has been getting big and big. And he started feeling the challenge was too much. One day, he got inspired… from god!? “Today is the best day of my life.” That makes him more happier each day.

    That a really good thinking! I’ll use it for myself.

    Japanese:
    Speech#1 “Murakami Haruki no Miryoku” by Akemi
    作家、村上春樹の大ファンだという明美さん。
    彼の魅力の存分を語っていただきました。
    小説だけではなく、現在、紀行文、ノンフィクション、エッセイなどもこなし、仕事は3分の2が海外からの講演依頼との事。最もノーベル文学賞に近いうちの一人だとか。
    彼の作品だけでなく、思想そのものに興味が沸いているとのお話でした。

    海辺のカフカ、読みたくなりました。今度、買ってきます。

    Speech#2 “日本語における「天」”by Kaz Utsumi
    前回のスピーチ「天職」の第二段!? 天という文字に興味が出てきたので 更に調べた結果を紹介していただきました。
    天職、天国、楽天、天界、天気、天の付く文字は様々。
    中国の思想に関しても語っていただきました。
    色々な漢文の紹介もあり、中でもやっぱりいい言葉。
     「天網恢恢 疎にして洩らさず。」 

    自分の行いを常日頃確認したいものです。
