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.

山中で海の幸

乾燥のあおさ海苔の味噌汁と、河原で摘んだクレソンのサラダ。

河原で?大丈夫なの?
多分。
その後、下してはいません。
海苔は生も美味しいけど、やっぱり乾燥にすると、旨味と香りが増しますね。

築地で買った、鮪の頬肉と野良坊のパスタ。

鮪の頬肉は、ハラミのような食感。美味しくできました。

どーでもいいけど、なんでこんなに画像の色悪い?かわいいちゃかわいいけど。
