Hi, Diane. How’s it going?

I’ve met many friends and relatives and am enjoying the reunion.
I hope you’ve enjoyed VIFF to the bone.

“Film Festival”

Here’s sexuality.

An open mind is advised!

I wish I were in Vancouver with you.
I really miss you.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,…

I met one of my lovely lady friends,
and wrote an article about her.

Thanks, Kato
… hope you’re really enjoying your stay in Japan.
I haven’t seen many of the old regulars here lately; they’re probably all out enjoying this lovely fall weather.

At any rate, you’ll be back the end of the next week so hopefully I’ll see you then.
I won’t actually be going to Joe Fortes Library very much any more.

I met this lovely man a few months ago; he’s intelligent, kind, witty and thoughtful.

He’s widowed & retired like myself and lonely just like I was.
He just bought half of a beautiful house in Kitsilano.
It’s a lovely neighbourhood and close to the beach and all and he’s been trying to talk me into coming to live with him, inasmuch as we have a great time together and have mutual values & interests and chemistry as well.

I’ve been considering it carefully and now feel it would be a great move for both of us.
He suggested I could keep my place and see how it goes for a while, which I think is a good idea really.

So I consented on Tuesday and I’m moving tomorrow… at least my clothes and books and violin and food and such; it’s ALL so exciting!

What an adventure!
I will, however, be in the westend every Thursday as it’s my yoga day/volunteer day/piano lesson day and such and then I could water my plants and do any chores and girl-stuff and sleep over and go to my regular gym on Friday morning to see my friends.

All of this to say I hope to see you on Thursdays if you’re here then.
Who knows how life will change, true?
Next thing we know, you’ll be moving in with a lovely flamenco dancer!

Wouldn’t that be fun, now?

Thanks for an article on Madame Taliesin.
I don’t recall ever hearing about him but guess I should have being of Welsh descent and all.

Have fun, kiddo,
See you soon, hopefully,

Love, Diane ~

So, Diane…,you’ve found a right man for you, haven’t you?

Yes, I have…I’m so excited, now.

I know…I know…but, I’m kinda sad.

How come…?

I’m feeling as if I was jilted.

You mean…I’ve thrown you into the hell, don’t you?

Yes, I feel suddenly lonely…because you’re sorta leaving far away from me.

C’mon, Kato!…You’re having a great time with Madame Taliesin in the theme park of Karuizawa, aren’t you?

Karuizawa Taliesin


Yes, I’m having happy days with Madame Taliesin in Karuizawa.

That means, you thought you would come on to me as well. Is that it?


Kato…, you’re expecting too much from me.  Don’t be foolish.

So, Diane, you think you’ve found a right man for you, don’t you?

Yes, I do.  I really mean it.

If you really think so, I would be more than happy to hear that.

Do you really mean it?

Yes, of course, I would like you to be happy…from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you, Kato.

I wish you wrere here with me in Karuizawa.

Karuizawa (軽井沢町)

Karuizawa is a town located in Kitasaku District, Nagano, Japan.

Karuizawa is known throughout Japan as a popular tourist spot.
People from Tokyo will travel to Karuizawa to get away from the city especially in summer.
There is a Shinkansen (bullet train) station as well as a large outlet store shopping mall.
It is also known for its historic shopping street known as “Ginza dōri” or “Kyū-dō” (Ginza Street, or the Old Road).

Karuizawa hosted equestrian events in the 1964 Summer Olympics.
The town also hosted curling in the 1998 Winter Olympics.
To date, it is the only city in the world having hosted both Summer and Winter Olympic events.

Yes, I would love to be in Karuizawa with you.  That would be lovely.

By the way, Diane, are you of Welsh descent?

I guess so.

What makes you think so?

‘Cause my dad was a Welshman from Swansea.


Yes, he was, but I’ve never heard of the Welsh poet—Taliesin before.

No kidding!

I don’t recall ever hearing about his name.  Kato, are you really sure about it?

Yes, of course, I am.


(c. 534 – c. 599)

He was an early British poet of the post-Roman period whose work has possibly survived in a Middle Welsh manuscript, the Book of Taliesin.
Taliesin was a renowned bard who is believed to have sung at the courts of at least three Celtic British kings.

A maximum of eleven of the preserved poems have been dated to as early as the 6th century, and were ascribed to the historical Taliesin.
The bulk of this work praises King Urien of Rheged and his son Owain mab Urien, although several of the poems indicate that he also served as the court bard to King Brochfael Ysgithrog of Powys and his successor Cynan Garwyn, either before or during his time at Urien’s court.
Some of the events to which the poems refer, such as the Battle of Arfderydd (c. 583), are referred to in other sources.

His name, spelled as Taliessin in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s Idylls of the King and in some subsequent works, means “shining brow” in Middle Welsh.
In legend and medieval Welsh poetry, he is often referred to as Taliesin Ben Beirdd (“Taliesin, Chief of Bards” or chief of poets).
He is mentioned as one of the five British poets of renown, along with Talhaearn Tad Awen (“Talhaearn Father of the Muse”), Aneirin, Blwchfardd, and Cian Gwenith Gwawd (“Cian Wheat of Song”), in the Historia Brittonum, and is also mentioned in the collection of poems known as Y Gododdin.
Taliesin was highly regarded in the mid-twelfth century as the supposed author of a great number of romantic legends.

According to legend Taliesin was adopted as a child by Elffin, the son of Gwyddno Garanhir, and prophesied the death of Maelgwn Gwynedd from the Yellow Plague.
In later stories he became a mythic hero, companion of Bran the Blessed and King Arthur.
His legendary biography is found in several late renderings, the earliest surviving narrative being found in a manuscript chronicle of world history written by Elis Gruffydd in the 16th century.

Amazing!…he was born in the sixth century…No wonder I’ve never heard of his name.

But he seems to be famous…’cause Taliesin was highly regarded in the mid-twelfth century as the supposed author of a great number of romantic legends…Diane, you’re a romantic woman, aren’t you?

What makes you think so, Kato?

‘Cause you’ve found this lovely man.  He seems romantic; so do you.

Well…,come to think of it, I think I’m romantic.

See?…I knew you were…and still believe that you’re really a romantic woman.  In any case, you’ve found an intelligent, kind, witty and thoughtful man.

Yes, I have.

I hope you’ll have many happy days with him.

Thank you, Kato.  I hope you’ll have lovely days with Madame Taliesin in Karuizawa, too.

Thanx millions, Diane.  I will, and hope I’ll see you soon.

【Himiko’s Monologue】

Wow! Did you see the VIFF video clip?
I think it’s a bit obscene and salacious.

Here’s sexuality.

An open mind is advised!

My heart throbbed like mad while I watched the above clip.
Sexuality is one thing; romance is another.

Come to think of it, I’ve never met a decent man in my life.
How come I’m always a loner?
I wish I could meet a nice gentleman at the library in my town as Diane met Kato.
Well, they say, there is a way where there is a will.

Have a nice day!

Hi, I’m June Adames.

I like Sylvia Kristel’s Lady Chatterley.

Lady Chatterley’s Lover

Sylvia Kristel (1981)

Talking of Sylvia Kristel, you might as well

remember Lady Emmanuelle.

Emmanuelle 1 – Ouverture

Emmanuelle 2: L’antivierge

Sylvia Kristel (1975)

Well…if you love to visit Paris,

please enjoy the Paris theme:

Sous le Ciel de Paris

by Hideshi Kibi(日本人)

You can find some Japanese musicians in Paris.

Fujiko Hemming also likes Édith Piaf

who sings “Sous le ciel de Paris.”

Sous le ciel de Paris

by Édith Piaf

I like Chanson Française (French song).

How about you?

Kato also love Édith Piaf,

but he considers Juliette Greco’s

“Sous le Ciel de Paris” much beter.

Sous le Ciel de Paris

by Juliette Greco

I believe Yves Montand’s “Sous le Ciel de Paris” is the best of all.

Sous le Ciel de Paris

by Yves Montand

I love Paris, but Vancouver isn’t bad at all.

To tell you the truth, Vancouver is a paradise to me.
