Visiting my mother

Today I visited my mother after nearly one month interval. She said she missed me and worried about me. She even had a bad dream that I had fallen in a difficult situation. In her dream I had sent to Ireland for my job. She thought Ireland was dangerous. Then I explained Ireland was not dangerous nowadays.
Why Ireland? Because I had been there about eleven months thorough 2004 and 2005 for my job. And it was some coincidence because I just finished reading a book at Sunday it mentioned Ireland in the story.
Any way she asked me regular visits. My showing up must be the vest present for her.

The statement about comfort women of Mr. Hashimoto, Osaka City mayor, receive bashing from common. Everybody seems dislike his this opinion. But I partly agree to his opinion. I think the system of comfort women is bad and sad thing. But it was true the system removed soldiers' sexually frustration so that saved many people especially women from soldiers' attacks and rapes. What we must do is studying the these fact and deciding that we never do the same thing again. And we must decide that we never allow a war.
When I think about these things, I remembered my posting to the SSS-TADOKU bord. I posted it at 2004 APR 16 just after reading "JOJO'S STORY"(CER2). It is following:

I just finished reading "Jojo's Story" ofCER2.It's a story of war.The story begin the scene that a small country village is emptied by soldiers.It say, "they are dead. My mother, my father, my sister, my brother. My family. ・・・My mother had no clothes on. I've never seen my mother without clothes.・・My sister's dead on the floor. There was blood on her leg. I pull down her skirt."
When I read these sentences, I remembered the story that I heard at last summer.I heard this on a TV. One old man, about 80, told his story on the world war 2 without showing his face.He was a soldier of Japan army, And had been fought against foreign countries at China. The war last long time. The soldiers were very tired. Also they were very hungry at food and women. Then lower level soldiers sometimes attacked small villages for those. He said, "One day, we attacked one house at small village. There were one old father and mother and young daughter. We started taking off the daughter's clothes as usual. The father of her asked us let go her with tears and bowed on ground. But we ignored him and had raped his daughter. After we finished we killed them. Because we were afraid they talk to our boss about this." He also said, "Almost soldiers were doing same without reasons. We should be crazy. But no way at those time." At last he said that he never tell this fact to his family. But also he felt he must tell this others for records.
Is this a old story? NO! The same things are going on at somewhere in the world. I read it on Newsweek at last autumn that the same things had been happened at Chechen(sorry I'm not sure the name of place yet) by Russian soldiers. And maybe now somewhere.
Dose wars make them bad? And are these soldiers bad?I'm not sure. But I'm sure that a war is bad.And we must see this fact or ignore this?

You ca read the beginning of this story at Amazon.

I was surprised a book for children choose this serious subject and expression. People may be think everybody even a child must know everything in England. Why people want hide these fact from children in Japan? I think children or student must know these things and think and discuss.
Mr. Knipe worked for a electric company as a engineer. And his company just finished a big project. They made a enormous electrical computing machine that might be fastest in the world. After the project he took few week holidays. In this moment he restarted writing his own novel. But this was not going well. Suddenly he had a idea. He thought about the computing machine. He guessed it might be possible that the computing machine wrote novels. Then his challenging had been started.



This book has this first story and other 12 stories written by Roald Dahl.
When I read this first story I’m surprised at Dahl’s imagination ability. This story had written at 1954. There might be a electrical computing machine in that time. But it would be not popular. But he might imagine what would be done with the machine. So he probably got the idea of this story, I think.
I found this book at the library of my city. I thought a moment if I borrow it because this book was fat. Actually it has over 250 pages. But it includes 13 short stories. Every story has 5 to 34 pages. A short story is easier to read than a long story of course. I took long period for finishing the book.
When I looked at Amazon Japan site there is the renewal version and a Kindle version. Black cover is the renewal version.
Then, Happy Reading!

THE ALCHEMIST

A boy wants to find something. So he becomes a
shepherd. He is traveling among villages in Spain with his sheep.
One night he have a dream about Pyramid. Some one says treasure is there. He thinks he must go Egypt.
Can he find his treasure?
This book has about 40,000 words.


I read this book two weeks ago.
This book is easier than Harry Potter book one.
You can read this book if you can read Harry Potter.
If you cannot understand some ideas in this book, that is no problem. You can read later again with better understanding.
This is a story about a boy who travels Egypt to find his Personal Legend, or treasure.
But the theme of this book isn't adventure, but some spiritual inspirations. I minded what is my Personal Legend and am I doing what I really want to do as I was reading this book. It is no wonder that this book is placed on shelves with other spiritual books in many book stores in Europe.
But the ideas in this book don't depend on any religions, or depend on all religions. Then I recommend this book for everyone, especially who lost his/her target of life.
