Spiritual amid worldly / 世俗のただなかでスピリチャルに

I think  is the last one of my posts inspired by Meister Eckhart’s sayings, at least for the time being — マイスター エックハルトの言葉に触発された投稿、これでしばらくは最後だと思います ・・・ Meister Eckhart: “Spirituality is not to be learned by flight from the world, or by running … Continue reading

“Truly, it is in the darkness — / 暗闇の中でこそ ・・・

More of the cylinder’s inside / 円柱の中身

The same cylinder — it has a lot of color beads in it, yet it is hard for my camera to capture them! So, I hung it right onto a light source, in this photo. I hope now you see … Continue reading

The cylinder full up — / 中身いっぱいの円柱

— so, the cylinder is now filled up with color beads, with another “lid” applied to it.  See how it looks like. … というわけで、円柱の中がカラービーズで一杯になりました。その上で、もう1つの「ふた」も取り付けました。こんな感じになっています。     For a closer look at it — yet again my camera is not good … Continue reading

Filling in the empty cylinder / 空の円柱にビーズを

So, what am I gonna do with the empty cylinder below??  Filling it in with larger beads of different colors — as you see, this is how it looks, when it is half filled up. では、下の空洞の円柱で何をするのか?? 中に、各色のもう少し大きいビーズを入れていくのです。下の写真は、ご覧のように、半分詰まった状態。       … Continue reading

“Woeful Days” / 「嘆きの日々」

So, this is in a way a pastel version of “Weeping Face,” made to a poem written by a friend of mine, titled “Woeful Days.”  This means this version is “illustrative,” so it is “lighter” than the oil-on-paper version, yet … Continue reading
