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.

バレンタイン?

今年は頂きもせず、あげもせず。

業者さんに昨日買った棚板と、現場の鍵を届けた後、友人とランチ。代官山の『ぽん太』。ここのトンカツは色が白くてお上品。低い温度のラードでじっくり揚げてる、はず。漬け物も美味しい。なにより、最初煎茶で、食後にほうじ茶が出てくるところがツボ。

関係ないけど、千歳船橋にて発見。

マダムチョウ・・・。
マダム蝶?マダム調?
お蝶婦人的な存在を目指してるのか、女装オカマのマダム調なのか。
興味はあるが、入る勇気なし。

家に帰ると、rereが以前買っておいた『Jean-Paul Hevin』のチョコレートを頬張ってました。当てつけか?
