At Sol, one part of the wall is painted in magenta.
This color, discovered by Goethe, is a combination of red and violet,
which respectively are the lowest and highest colors of the visible spectrum.
Red is most heavy with long wavelengths signifying Roughness.
Violet is light with short wavelengths signifying Delicateness.
Hence, in Japan, violet is commonly used to represent the highest rank.
The words, “reason is formed by the height of culture and the height of animality” represent this ideology;
when the extremities of the vulgar and the refined exist, instead of combining both and diving it in half,
it is the intuition of going both directions simultaneously.
This is what is referred to as the Middle Way in Buddhism, meaning when exact opposites exist,
one does not take what is in the center but encloses them both.
Sol’s aim to synthesize the man-made, contemporary and western, with the natural, antique and eastern,
alludes to the meaning of the color magenta, which signifies a mixture of opposite colors.
Thus, magenta is the symbol of the Middle Way.

いい加減、寒いので、薪ストーブを探しに。ストーブ自体はあるのやけど、煙突って???って感じ。どーしたもんなんかなー。
採寸設置して欲しいー。情報求む。

夕方、カルムと散歩。なんやかんやと拾い食いするので、しそうなものをチェックするため、下向き加減で歩くはめになるのやけど、そうしてたら、ちっちゃい蛇!なにこれ?と思ったら、大きすぎるミミズの屍骸でした・・・。カルムもさすがに無視。
久しぶりにゆっくり河原を眺めてみたら、水量が減って、水が澄んで、白鷺が遊んでました。

そして紅葉。
夏は芋の子洗う河原も人気なく、カルムを離して、ぼーっとタバコ一服。

夜はお待ちかねの、金八。
I have a dream.
キング牧師の演説を引用して差別について語る金八。

Do I have a dream?
思わず自問自答。

Do you have a dream?
