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.

本日のオーダー

8月にお越しの2名が再登場。
以前、どんよりされてた1名はすっかり元気な様子、もう1名も仕事辞めてこれからは環境問題に取り組みます、となんやかんやと変化の兆し。
いい風に変化されると、うれしいですね。

今日は、風邪気味な1名、きれいな葱を見つけたので、たっぷり食べてもらってさっさと風邪撃退を目論んで、鍋に。
鰹といりこと昆布で出汁。葱たっぷりに、レタス、トマト、法蓮草。焼肉用のカルビをしゃぶしゃぶというか、火が通れば食べ頃。つけだれは、胡麻だれにサンバルソースを混ぜたもの。
これ、美味しいです。
最後はうどんで〆。

なんだかんだといっぱいお話ししました。
なに話したか覚えてませんけど。
今後もいい変化し続けていかれる姿を見てたいなーと思います。
