Ryotaro Sugi Starting with a prison visit at the age of 15, he has been engaged in welfare activities at home and abroad for 60 years. Before becoming a singer, he worked unpaid at his acquaintance's curry shop in order to decide to lead a life in which he would not seek "reward." When mixing soup-run curry in a disaster-stricken area in Tohoku, a reporter asked him, "Are you seeking publicity?" Left in the cold, people were waiting in line. He saved even the time to counter. From "Weekly...

Federico Fellini The movie "The Road" is an enduring masterpiece in postwar Italian movies. Although he had a rush of offers to produce different versions or animated version after the screening, the director refused all of them. At this time he swore that he would never imitate his own past works, aside from whether or not all his later films were so. I'm wondering that he believed that another seed of creation lurked in the margin that couldn't be made into a movie. From a critical biography,...

Norio Akasaka A song stirs emotion. It also wash away the sediment that has accumulated at the bottom of the heart. If everyone sings together, their mood will be further enhanced. A song can provoke people's feelings excessively and combine them, or can be the last form of people's "resistance." The folklore says that the amplitude of the swing is scary. From a tripartite talk with a poet, Ryoichi Wago, and an art producer, Chiaki Soma ("Contemporary Poem Handbook" March issue), the same as...

a student from Fukushima An art producer, Chiaki Soma, says that the student, who met with the earthquake on the day of his junior high school graduation ceremony, said like this in a workshop held in Tohoku District.

He also says that on the other hand, it became a chance for him to positively accept his hurt feelings again. From a tripartite talk with a poet,...

Ryoichi Wago The poet thought that he must do something "completely different" after the explosion of the nuclear power plant, and continued to post tweets that he did not know who would read via Twitter, which "he was not good at." He says that the difficulty of writing "as it is" facing "the absurd" of this accident is at the origin of his poetry afterwards. From a tripartite talk with a folklorist, Norio Akasaka and an art producer, Chiaki Soma ("Contemporary Poem Handbook" March issue)....

Zhuangzi A cook cuts a cow. His movement and the sound his knife made are just like music. It is said that the cook only saw the appearance of a cow in the beginning, which eventually the appearance left his eyes, and he became able to cut open the space between the bone and flesh with the very his mind's eye along "Tenri" (the natural muscle line in the body of a cow). And also he said that there was no nick in his knife because he did not do it by force. From "Zhuangzi (inner Chapters)"...

Ryoetsu Okumi From "Live With The Whale" written by a dietary researcher, Jun Akamine. These "whale men" (whaling industry workers) Akamine interviewed had dissected the whale for half a century. When they put a kitchen knife into the body, they can instantly find whether it is a harpoon or the bone. And if they hit the bone, the cutting edge stops just before it hits like "Sundome in Karate". They say that it will take five or ten years to acquire the skill to let a kitchen knife cut quickly...

Noriko Ibaraki The poet says that people need "the time to erase their existence suddenly," even though it is "a doze, meditation, or misconduct." Although "there is no reason to make an alibi every day," the cell phone rings. But I do not answer. Rather, breaking open the gap of time, I want to daydream without thinking of anything. It is important to take care of myself, but I sometimes get tired of myself. The time to be in a state of nothingness is also necessary. From a poem, "The Time...

Masako Shirasu When playing a demon in Noh, if the performer is always strong, he "looks just rough and does not look truly strong", and also neither beautiful nor interesting. The essayist says that Zeami expounded so. Zeami also said that restraint makes performers look more powerful and makes theirs forms look regulated. Clothes are not a thing to manage appearance but a thing which you put your heart in. They are for forming your behavior and readiness to live. From "Noh - The Flower Of An...

Tsuyoshi Inukai The so-called May 15th Incident in 1932. It is said that the then prime minister controlled the young officers who attacked to shoot at him saying like this. Immediately afterwards, he was cruelly murdered with a word of "Don't waste your breath." It seems that what he worried about at the moment was not the fact that the conflict became more serious, but that a place where a conflict of opinions is recognized as a conflict was lost. And also it was that, in that way, the public...
