サイト紹介文英文エッセイを書くことは、「心のやすらぎ」を与えてくれます。
自由文Everyone wants peace of mind. I also hope peace of mind. Recently I noticed I love writing both in Japanese and in English. Writing makes my mind clear and calm. Especially, English is foreign language for me, so I can't express my emotion and opinion without arranging my thought. I found that my mind was lighter after writing English essays. Writing English essays brings me peace of mind.

  • “Unforgettable Valentine’s Day”
  • There is a strong tradition among women giving chocolates to men on Valentine’s Day in Japan. When my husband was alive, he was
    often given expensive chocolates by his female co-workers. Of course, I would give him expensive ones, too. We enjoyed eating exp
    ensive chocolates together on Valentine’s Day, which we never did on ordinary days. After my husband passed away, I felt extreme

  • “My lifework - Iyengar Yoga And English ? “
  • For 26 years, I had been an English teacher of a junior high school. Because of overwork and stress, I developed depression 12 ye
    ars ago. Moreover, my husband suddenly died 5 years ago. Since my husband’s death made my sickness worse, I couldn’t teach any

  • "My father"
  • My father is very kind and diligent. Moreover, he never loses his passion for knowledge. When he was young, he attended the even
    ing course in Ritsumeikan University because he couldn’t afford to go to the day course. But even though he was already taking t

  • “ Full Heart “
  • As my grandmother was respectable, talented, powerful and very stubborn, she controlled my family. All family members had to obey
    her opinion even though we didn't want to. Even though she loved me, she never allowed me to express my will. She gave me a stable
    and well paved road that she believed it was the best. I had endured her domination for a long time, as a result, I lost my will
    and hope. [続きを読む]

  • “A connection through yoga.”
  • One of my close yoga friends left our town because her husband was transferred overseas. We learned Iyengar yoga which respects th
    e alignment, precision and sequence together. We had her last lesson, although I drowned in sadness. We made sure we would make
    the most out of her last day of her yoga class in Japan. I can still remember clearly the day when she came to our yoga class.

  • “Crocheting Sometimes Symbolizes a Human Life.”
  • I've just finished crocheting the doily with pineapple pattern. I had to use thin yarn and a hook to crochet it, moreover the pine
    apple pattern was a little complicated. Usually, I make mistakes when I crochet with simple patterns because since I feel I alread
    y memorized the patterns, so it makes me careless as I crochet it quickly. As a result, I have to untie the crocheted cloth and th

  • “Sirsasana For the First Time in My Life.”
  • This is the picture which was taken when I did Sirsasana( head stand )last Thursday. Yes, it is for the first time in my life that I did Sirsasana by myself. It was very hard for me to continue practicing it because I failed to do that pose so many times and I spent one year and two months to triumph it. As I was glad when I started to practice the Sirsasana, I tried my best to be able to acco [続きを読む]

For example, fried chicken, Japanese style omelette, potato salad and so on. They we [続きを読む]
  • “ Revive Old Used Things “
  • I love remaking. I always feel happy when I finished making something with old things which were not used yet. The reason why I f
    eel happy is that my handmade work revives old used things. I had an old kimono which was given to me by my grandmother. I liked t
    he kimono but it was too short for me to wear, so I didn’t know how to use it. One day, I remembered one of my friends who owns
    a sewing ca [続きを読む]
  • “ The Long Way “ -My History of Written Works-
  • When I was a little girl, I loved listening to my grandmother’s old stories. Her stories excited my imagination. After I began
    to learn how to write letters and characters, I also came to love writing. Writing in my small notebook, the stories that I imagin
    ed, was my favorite hobby. I have loved writing since then. However I didn’t like to write compositions in my Japanese class ver

  • “ Knowing the Difference “ - Oden and Sinigang -
  • Getting to know different culture is very interesting. It is especially fascinating for me to learn differences in food culture.

I sometimes feel it is hard for me to be good at associating with others. For example [続きを読む]

    cook Halloween dishes. Lately, I have been seeing Halloween decorations near my place often because Halloween is coming soon. But

  • " Peaceful Mind after Yoga Lessons "
  • Recently I got addicted in crocheting more than before, and because of that, I sat for long time in same posture while busy doing
    my craft. As a result, I was suffering from stiff muscles in my shoulders, neck and lower part of back. The bad physical conditio
    n made my mind depressed. I attended Iyengar yoga class yesterday. Before going there, I was lacking motivation, but as I was &nb

  • " Don't Compare Ourselves to Others. "
  • We tend to compare ourselves to others and then we often feel inferior.I often feel lesser, anxious and frustrated when I compare
    myself with others. Such negative feelings make me tired and unsure of myself very much. I suffered from inferiority complex for a
    long time. When I started Iyengar yoga, I was the person with such negative feelings. At that time I often felt miserable when I
    couldn’t [続きを読む]
  • “Faces”
  • When my mother was young, she was very pretty. Unfortunately, I look like my father rather than my mother. People often told to me
    , "Your mother is very pretty but you don't resemble her." I felt inferior of my appearance and their words hurt me seri
    ously. Thus, I pretended not to be interested in my looks and fashion while feeling a strong inferiority complex. However, I belie

  • “Full Moon Power”
  • The moon looks beautiful in autumn. I saw a beautiful autumn full moon on September 28 which we call "Super moon". &nbs
    p;The full moon will start to wane the next day. I heard that it would be a suitable time for people to throw the things they don'

  • “ The Fish Which Tells It’s Autumn. “
  • Saury is the fish which tells Japanese people that autumn has come. It is the fattiest and tastiest in autumn. The best season to
    get saury is during autumn. When we grill it and then eat it with grated radish and sudachi ( a kind of Japanese citrus) or sliced
    lemon, it tastes wonderful. I heartily felt autumn has come when I ate it yesterday for the first time in this season. I think th

  • “People in Kyoto”
  • I have been living in Kyoto since I was born. Many people regard Kyoto as a very attractive city. I am often told the same about
    Kyoto. People in Kyoto are vague and they don't express their opinion clearly. They look kind and gentle on the surface. Therefore
    for people who come from other prefectures Kyoto is a good place to visit for sightseeing. But it is said Kyoto is avery difficul
