ゼロ Zero

フィクションの本の面白さは歴史的な事実とうまく掛け合わせることによって面白さが倍増することがある。永遠のゼロ、百田尚樹著。日本の昔の現状、上の人達に従わなければならなかった人々、嘘の情報。感動もの小説。

永遠の0 Blu-ray通常版

I just read this book, “The Eternal Zero” by Naoki Hyakuta. He used facts from the past and made the story line exciting. Japanese History, how people had to follow the orders from the higher ranks without their will, incorrect information. An emotional story.

18 Weeks, 18 週間

My wife, my son and I (Tagawa Trio) started to play a tune a week by the Beatles on YouTube. With today’s video, we now have 18 videos. Today’s video is With a little help from my friends. Two weeks ago, my teaching started, and my fellow teachers have been helping me a lot. I am getting by with a little help from my friends during this new way of online teaching.
妻、息子と私トリオ(たがわトリオ)でビートルズの曲を一週間に一曲づつユーチューブに載せて言っています。今週で18本目です。今日はWith a little help from my friendsでした。2週間前から私は学校に戻り、新しいオンラインで教えるという新しいことを先生の友達の助けをかりて何とかやっています。

Jump Rope, 縄跳び

When I was in HS in Japan, as a part of requirement to pass the 11th grade, we were to pass the Jump Rope test. We have to pass on the following tasks (forward and backward): Double, Cris-Cross Double, Cross Double. It has been a while since I jump roped last, but I can still do forward double. Jump roping became after school activity for my son and I since last week.

高2の時、体育の授業で縄跳びがありました。結構苦労したのを覚えています。二重とび、二重あやとび、二重交差とびの前回しと後ろ回し。高校以来縄跳びはしてませんでしたが、何とか前二重とびは覚えていました。先週から学校が終わった時間は息子と縄跳びをしています。

Concert, コンサート

Tucson Repertory Orchestra’s (TRO) first concert was in July 2012. I had a wonderful time conducting while standing on a ladder. I started climbing up the conducting ladder since then. Hope to we can start performing again.
ツーソンレパートリーオーケストラの初コンサートは2012年の7月でした。はしごの上での指揮から始め、指揮者としての階段を上り始めたころです。演奏会ができる日がまちどおしいです。

School, 学校

Today was the first day back to school. Teachers only, but it has been 5 months since I have been in the Orchestra room. Nice to be back, and I am looking forward to seeing students via Zoom starting next week.

今日久しぶりに学校に戻りました。今週は先生のみですが、はや5ヶ月もオーケストラの部屋に来てないのだなとつくづく思いました。来週からオンラインで教え始めます。生徒たちにZoomで会えるのを楽しみにしています。

First Dog, 初犬

My first pet was a dog. She was a puppy when she came to our house. Her name was Mary, and she lived until the month my family left Japan. Although we got her as a puppy, she escaped from our house, and when she came back to us, a month later, she was a big dog by then. As I am about to start teaching next week, and I have not seen my students for 5 months in person, next time I get to see them, they will be all grown up.

私が初めて飼ったのは犬でした。マリーという名で私達家族が日本を出るころまで生きていました。飼い始めたときはまだ子犬だったのですが、一ヶ月ほど行方不明になり帰ってきたときにはもう大きくなっていました。来週から教職にもどります、早5が月も生徒たちと会っていません。次にオンライン以外で会える時にはかなりみな成長していることでしょう。
