Inhale, exhale. stop. Click, click.

In hale, exhale, stop.  Click, click click, click.

Listening physician’s clicks

for measuring the distance in the annual ultra sound examination,

I got nervous.

*

‘Ok. Finish. Please come back later for consulting’ she smiled and said.

I was released from hospital,

but my mind was not.

Walking street under the blue sky, having coffee at a tropical terrace,

mind was caught in the click sounds, wondering what she was measuring.

Tumor?

*

Inhale exhale.

Stop worrying. Stop thinking what is impossible to know right now.

Whatever comes later, I am sitting here uprightly. Deep exhale.

*

Suddenly world gets color back. Released.

*

On the way home from hospital, enjoy walking in colorful world.

*

Busy busy busy in the morning. Not enough time.

Still sit down, have breakfast, breath morning air. Space for smile.

For earning relax time, I bake fruits bars in one of the afternoons.

DSC06511

Fruits bar

8cm x 4cm 9 pieces or 18cm square

Peel and cut 3 apples into thin slice. Place in a pot with 50cc apple juice. Cover the lid.

Heat over medium low flame. Cook 10 min without open lid. Shake occasionally.

By stick blender grind into puree. If the puree doesn’t enough to 300cc, add some apple juice and mix well.

Pour the puree into a big bowl.

Add 150g dried fruits (cut into small size, if it needs), 80g mixed nuts (ground), 50g rolled grains, 50g whole wheat flour, 1.5tsp baking powder, 20g desiccated coconuts, 30g pumpkin seeds, 1.5Tsp coconuts oil.

Mix from the bottom until nearly mixed. Don’t knead.

Place into the mold. Flatten the surface by finger tips gentry. Don’t push.

Bake it in 180 degree 25min.

If it’s in square mold, make cuts into bar shape. Place a bit jam on.

Let it cool down. Take out from the mold. Keep in fridge.

*

Before eat, better to keep in room temperature for getting back softness.

Or crush bar, mix with yogurt. Eat as granola as well.

Have healthy energy. Good start of the day. Cheers!

Walking along beach my sis said

‘I walk everyday. Sea never the same.’

*

Even time is similar everyday, sky, wind, tide level are different. And our feeling.

IMG_3253

Practice yoga everyday.

Poses might be similar, but never the same.

Every moment new things are observed. Maybe at skin, muscles, bones, nerves, breath or mind.

Sometimes feel confusing, annoying, pain, something wrong.

Sometimes feel right, energetic and peaceful.

*

Watch the sea. Let waves come and go.

at this moment of beautiful Sunset.

*

I’m full. But there is some food left. I disagree wasting food.

Ummm. How should I do?

*

Give a new life in pleasant way. Don’t waste other’s lives!

*

I asked vegetarian friend why? She said because she feel sorry for their pain.

But when I peel the lettuce leaves, I feel their screaming.

*

Japanese receive food for life energy saying ‘Itadakimasu’ as gratitude.

命の芽生え

 

どうしてベジタリアンなの?と訊ねると、痛みがかわいそうだと答えられた。

でも、レタスを剥くときにも痛いって叫ばれてると感じる。

だから、「いただきます」と命に感謝をする。

 

もやしの作り方

初日

熱湯消毒した瓶に豆を2層入れる。3倍量の水を入れ一晩置く。24時間を超えないように。

水を捨てて、キッチンペーパーか布巾で蓋をして、箱や戸棚の中の暗いところに置く(現在は、ウォーターサーバーを使っています)

二日目以降

1日3回、1回につき3度ゆすぐ。好みの大きさまで育てる。

もやしのいただき方

塩入りの熱湯でサッと茹でて、器に移し、ツユかポン酢かゴマだれで和え、冷ます。

 

新鮮な命は美味しい。自分の命を芽吹かせることが、いただいた命への感謝だと思う。
