On Sunday, I was not feeling well and really needed to do something different. Something to improvise, something to calm myself down. Firstly, I went to see my friend’s session of Crystal Bowls. Where he played was close to my house so I invited one of my friends for lunch, before the session. I made some Couscous which I’ve never cooked before, however I’ve tasted several times in all over the world; so I re-created the dish our of my physical memory and imagination. It was fun and tasted really good! Unfortunately I’ve got a call from my friend saying that she’ll be late, so I packed some Couscous and brought it to another friend who plays the show by telling, this pack lunch was from both of us. Have you experienced Crystal Bowl session? It’s a musical instrument made by crystal powder and all about overtones- we lie down on the floor as we listened, the tone was racing around my body and almost felt ticklish. Quite refreshing and interesting, and glad he liked my fake Couscous. During the session, an idea to amuse myself popped into my head. After that, I hardly said goodbye to my friends and rush back home, then pack up whatever I see and jumped on the train.
Well, now I’m in Nagano with mountains and forests. Oh it’s all so quiet… and peaceful.
