I'm looking forward to going hiking in Higashiyama in late September or early October.
A few days ago, I watched Fahrenheit 451 on TV. It is a science fiction movie created in 1966, and it is based on a novel by Ray Bradbury. The story is set in the world where people are prohibited from owning and reading books.3. Do you ever make smoothies or juice?
No. We prefer eating fruit as they are.4. Who do you wish you could talk to right now?
Right now? No, I can't think of anyone in particular.
... paint a picture and write poems while staying there.
Judging from the temperature and the humidity, I still feel as if I were in the middle of the summer. However, seeing plants like these reminds me that fall is just around the corner.
According to the traditional Japanese calendar, August 7 was the first day of fall, and in the world of haiku, it is already fall.
I am still enjoying the summer, but I appreciate harbingers of the new season.
Right now, I don't want to make any changes to our house. I feel as if our house had no room for improvement... Not that it is perfect, but I like it just as it is now.
Yes. I sometimes send snail mail to people much older than I am.
I seem to dream less often than I used to. I don't remember having any nightmares recently.
Visiting one of the city parks makes me happy. These are some of the photos I took in the flower park yesterday.

My earliest time in my life I can remember is, if my memory serves me, the day when I visited a preschool for the first time with my mother a few weeks before I officially started going there. I was almost four years old. I remember an older pupil gave me a pinwheel made of origami at that time.2. What's do you like to put on pasta? (Your favorite topping.)
3. Is there something that takes time away from more important things in your life? (TV, internet, talking on the telephone, etc.)Stir-fried clams, onions, garlic, red pepper, and Parmesan cheese.
I guess I am spending too much time on the Internet.4. Do you buy many clothes that are "high maintenance"? (Clothes that need to be ironed, dry cleaned, or hand washed)
No, not at all. My most important criterion for choosing a new clothes is that it is NOT "high maintenance."5. Please finish this sentence. "I'd like to visit the beach today and-------------------------."
... observe the sea, swim a little, collect seashells and sea glass on the beach, and relax in the shade.
No, I haven't. The beautiful place seems to be worth visiting.
I saw monkeys in the small zoo in Oyama last April.
I have never heard of this proverb, and I am wondering what it means. -- The door with too many keys can be interpreted in two ways:
(1) This door has only one lock and too many identical keys. There are too many people carrying a copy of this key. There are too many people who can access what is kept in the room or the building.
(2) The door has many locks and we need a different key for each of the locks. We need to have all the keys with us in order to open the door. It is not easy to enter the room or the building.
An example in my own life?-- I'm afraid I cannot seem to find the key(s) to the place(s) where relevant memories are stored away.
5. Besides your home, vehicle, and special jewelry, what is something you keep under lock and key?
I don't keep anything else under lock and key, unless I am figuratively speaking.
'Keyed up' -- 'anxious or excited' -- Personally, I have been leading a peaceful, quiet life, and I don't remember getting remarkably 'keyed up' recently.
Yes, please. In fact, I have never had key lime pie, and I would like to know what it is like.
