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.

庭駆け回る

庭ちゃうけど。
目の前の川やけど。

全然雪はなくならず、一面の雪の中を駆けずり回りました。

坂本龍一のCDと高田純次の『適当日記』が欲しくて、イオンモールへ。
途中、税金の納付。

現在なぜか、ジャネットのLive DVDを見てます。

で、税金納めました電話を渋谷区役所にしたら、エラいお礼を言われてんけど。
遅れたんこっちやし。延滞税も取られたけど、こっちの問題やし。
納めて頂いた上にお電話まで、な勢い。
なんやろ、この違和感。
必要な税金であるのなら、堂々としてて。
年金問題やのなんやの、明らかに旗色悪いお役所サマ。
こんなこと、いつまで続くんやろ。
