Hi Kato,

Thanks so much .. this is all so very interesting.
One of these days I’m going to take a chi gong (気功) class here at the WECC(Westend Community Centre).

I remember taking one years ago.
In the meantime, I do my yoga every day.
and have done for years.
I used to be a yoga teacher.

I go to the gym three times a week,
walk the seawall with my group every Tuesday
and swim and hike in the mountains when I get the chance.

Hopefully, this will keep me in shape for years to come!

Thomas Jefferson, one of the early USA Presidents (he penned the Declaration of Independence) and who was a very learned man, said that “every man should devote his afternoons to exercise and recreation as it is as important as reading.

In fact, he said, “It’s even more important because our health is worth more than learning.”
That’s for sure!
He impressed me.

Of course, learning is important, too … but who’s got the time for everything?!
Thanks again for these video clips.
They’re wonderful.

Love, Diane ~

So, Diane, you used to be a yoga teacher, didn’t you?

Oh, yes, I used to.

No wonder you’re in a good shape. And I’m pretty sure you’ll be in shape for years to come.

You are in

 

a good shape!

I really hope so.

what kind of yoga do you perform?

I’ll show you.

Wow! You’re so sexy and flexible.

Thanks.

Secret of Yoga

“Crane Dance”

This form is one of the secrets of Sutra Yoga.
It was created by combining the breathing method of anciant India, the system of meditation, and the cosmic energy.
It is a rare skill for you to maintain the above form for ten minutes while you breathe peacefully.
Himiko-san has achieved this secrecy after practicing this art for ten years.
Once a female achieves this skill, she should be able to attract any man when she shows this form.


ヨガの秘法 - 「鶴の舞」

この「鶴の舞」はスートラ・ヨガの秘法なのでござ~♪~ますわ。
古代インドのヨガ呼吸法の奥義や、宇宙エネルギーとの合一の秘法から編み出された型なのですわ。
呼吸を整えながら10分間、上のように静止した姿勢で居ることは、奥義の域に到達した者でない限りできないものなのでござ~♪~ます。
あたくしは10年間修行を積んで、やっとこの秘法を会得(えとく)したのでござ~♪~ますわ。
しかも、この「鶴の舞」を殿方にご覧に入れれば、その方の心を引き寄せてしまうと、言い伝えがある秘伝の奥義なのですわぁ。

Kato, I’ve never heard of this form—“Crane Dance.” Did Himiko-san really show it in front of you?

Oh, yes. I went to one of the famous hot-spring resorts with Himiko-san.

Himiko-san climbed up on the floor. Without a word, she performed the above amazing act.

Did she really show the above form in the altogether?

Oh, yeah. You bet. Believe me, Diane, Himiko-san gave me such a shocking sight that my eyes almost blasted off the eye sockets.

You’re exaggerating, aren’t you?

Anyway, my heart almost stopped beating. He, he, he, he, … By the way, Diane, I absolutely agree with Thomas Jefferson.

…agree on what?

He said, “It’s even more important because our health is worth more than learning.” I agree on that.

Do you, Kato?

Oh, yes, but I think there’s more to it.

…like what?

I’ve been thinking about it for quite some time, and have come up with an equation?

What kind of equation?

An equation for life and happiness.

I’ve never heard of that?

Of course, because I’ve made it up. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,…

Show me what it is, Kato.

Happiness = Health(w) * Social Activities(w)

What is this?

Well…, happiness is produced by the result of your health and social activities.

What is “w” in the Health(w)?

Have you ever heard of the following saying, Diane?

There is a way where there is a will.

Yes, of course, I have.

So, “w” is a will power. If you have a strong will to improve your health as well as your social actovities, you should be able to achieve a great deal of happiness.

I see. So, you cannot achieve happiness with good health alone.

No, you can’t. You’ll be happy only if you improve both your health and social activities. And if you fail to improve one of those, your happiness will be gone forever.

Health(0) = Natural death

Social Activities(0) = Accidental death or suicide

If you fail to maintain good health, you’ll die at the worst. That’s what Health(0) means. In that case, your happiness will become nil.

What about Social Activities(0)?

Well…, social activities(0) could be represented as follows:

Social Activities(will) = A(school) + A(family) + A(church) + A(Net) + …

A(school) means activities at school, A(family) means activities in your family, and so on.

I see.

If you maintain a strong will to improve your health and social activities, your happiness will be the multiplication of both your excellent health and your successful social activities. However, if you lose your life by accident or by will, that will produce Social Activities(0)—that is, death. Accordingly, your happiness would be nil in that case.

I see. Interesting! Kato, you’re really an eager student, aren’t you?

Yes, I am.

【Himiko’s Monologue】

Well…, even when I showed the secret form, Kato didn’t fall in my spell.
I was so disappointed that I was almost drowned in the spa.

Yoga is one thing; romance is another.
Well, 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 Kato met Diane.
Well, they say, there is a way where there is a will.

Have a nice day!
Bye bye …

こんにちは。ジューンです。

パリと言えばイヴ・サンローラン

(Yves Saint LAURANT)の

「リヴ・ゴーシュ(rive gauche)」という

香水があります。

1970年代に、それまでになかった

フレッシュな香りの香水として

パリの若い女性たちの間で大人気になったのです。

爽やかな甘さの中にキリッとした青葉の香りが漂い、

日本では今でも根強い人気があると

レンゲさんが言ってました。

このリヴ・ゴーシュという名前は

「左岸」という意味なのです。

パリを流れるセーヌ川の右岸、

つまり、お金持ちの住むセーヌ川の

北側区域に住む人々の

ドレス姿に似合う香りではなく、

左岸(南側)に住む働く女性、

つまり伝統にとらわれない若い女性のために

作られた香水だそうです。

ちょうど、このような女の子たちに好まれるような

庶民的な香水です。

あなたの好みはどちらでしょうか?

ところで、愛とロマンに満ちた

レンゲさんのお話をまとめて

『レンゲ物語』を作りました。
