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.

耽る

『花の回廊』宮本輝をひたすら読み過ごす1日。
途中、チャーハン食べたいと思いつつ、なぜかカレーを食べてしまって、また輝。
炬燵で、ベッドで、輝。
もうすぐ読み終わってしまう・・・。
読み終えたいやら、終えたくないやら。
きっと第6部の出版は2年後とか。

第1部から第5部まで23年経ってるけど、物語で過ぎた時間は11年。
どんな頭の中身なんやろ?

山崎豊子好きはきっと輝も好きなはず。
