近頃としては とても珍しく 「英語で何かを発信したい!」 気持ちが 高まっていた。
こんな日は、自ずと 日本語より先に 英語で気持ちを書き残せるし、普段(日本語先行でモノを考えてる時)よりも 自分の周りの人や環境の 【いいところ】に注意が行きやすい。

笑顔って 凄いな。
自分も相手も通行人さんも傷つくことなく 雨雲みたいに心に垂れ込めた負のキモチを 裂くのだから。

台風('A`|||)


I skipped my online lesson for two consecutive days.
That's all because of that damned typhoon, which often weakens the Internet signal.

Putting my online lesson aside, I'd been worried about Typhoon Lionrock since last weekend, because I had to attend the annual community festival on 8/28.
The festival should never be cancelled or postponed; it would have been held in the gym without burning torches in case of rain.

Cyclonic weather such as a typhoon causes not only traffic delays and cancellations but also dizziness and laziness to many people.
Fortunately the festival day was fine, but a very heavy rain hit my place yesterday afternoon, when Typhoon Lionrock had approached to eastern Japan.
Rainstorm lasted for about 24 hours until the typhoon landed on Iwate Prefecture, where the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake hit.

Typhoon Lionrock was very rare because it traveled to the west at first and reversed to strike northeast Japan.
I'm fed up with typhoons!
