明日、晴れなかったら、


Youtubeにあったこの動画もいいです。

太陽暦では、どうしても梅雨時にあたる、七夕、小さい頃は、本気で晴れるよう
祈っていたものでした。






梅雨、雨期といえば、先日NHKでボリビアのウユニ塩原の番組(一部)を偶然見たのだけど、雨期になると一面の塩の原の上に雨が降ってたまり、見渡す限りの水鏡。
そこに空が映し出される光景が、すばらしかった。あんな中に身をおいたら、
自分の存在の感覚もまったく違ってきそう。

Youtubeで一部見られます。

Tomorrow, 7th of July, we cellebrate Star Festival Tanabata in Japan.

There is a legend of two lovers (two stars), Orihime (Vega) and Hikoboshi (Altair),
who are separated by the Milky Way and can see each other only one day (7th July)
over the bridge made with a flock of magpies flying together over the Amanogawa river
(river of stars: Milky Way) only if it is fine.

As we adapted the solar calendar, 7th of July usually falls around the end of
rainy season, the sky is not always clear, and we cannot see the milky way often
on that day, though.

We put colorful strips of paper with our wishes, and origami and cut paper ornaments
on a bamboo branch.

You can see some of the ornaments made with Origami here. You will also find more Origami patterns from the menu bar.
