The four movies I’ve watched recently moved me to tears. They are about (1) non-fighting bull in Spain, (2) Big black guy who found his home in another side of town (3) Taking bear in London and (4) Show of unique humans in New York. Although those are totally different movies, they have one common theme which teaches us a very important lesson: “What you are supposed to be is something you can change if you wish and go for it”.
It’s been a while since I had a personal trip last time without thinking about work at all, which taught me many things!
For 10 days, I had a family trip to China and Thailand. In this article, I would like to write about some general trip advice, recommended places, how to get there and how much as well as what lessons I learned.
1 image can worth more than 1,000 words.
Especially someone with right-brain mindset like me, having image is very important for my blog, work and others. Also, I wanted to develop my creativity since without practice, your creativity will just ebb, and I did not want to let that happen. Last year, thanks to one tool, there was a great encounter between both needs: growing my creativity with my own drawing.
Do you like to see the tinted autumnal leaves?
I love it, and I don’t mind taking long night bus, walking a lot and/or climbing mountains to capture beautiful colors in my eyes.
Thinking about why I like those color changes, I think it’s because I like 3 color combinations Red Yellow and Green (hereafter referred as RYG), which I tend to use for designing my blog entry and work-related things. Those RYG colors can be seen not only in color change of leaves in the fall, but also in Rasta color and Trafic lights.
Then I started thinking if there was any secret behind this color combination, and I started learning about several different things: (1) Color system, (2) Meaning of Rasta color, (3) Origin of traffic lights as well as (4) Concept of colors in Japan.
“Pick one thing, not many. Otherwise you end up failing on all.”
In my childhood, many adults told me this, and accepting this was difficult for someone like me who was curious about many different things.
But luckily we live in a society where such a diversity is embraced and even needed more and more, and it seems OK to be interested in many different things. To highlight this, let me talk about three different sources: (1) exhibition, (2) book and (3) video.
It’s been awhile since I updated the blog last time, since for the last two weeks, I was back in Japan (@Tokyo for my job and @Osaka for a bit of vacation).
I am not familiar with Tokyo, and over there, I felt so much about the capital of Japan, as well as New York, one of the most dynamic cities in the world!
♪Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred (525,600) minutes,
♪How do you measure, measure a year?
―“seasons of Love” from the musical Rent―
With just one day to go to finish this year, this song came to my mind, which got me thinking “How do I measure year 2015?”.
Then I came to pick up travelling, job, people and books.
