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.

Let's drive!

前にタイヤ交換してもらって、結局今の赤のゴルフ3から、白のゴルフ2へチェンジ、その結果、車も愛情の欠如を感じてたのか、一気にあっちもこっちもガタがきて、という話は書いたけど、そのタイヤ交換の際にブレーキパッドが擦り減って既になくなってるということがわかって、遠出は避けて下さいという状態、車が見つかるまでとりあえず代車出しますね、がようやくやって来ました。
最初、ポロが来る予定やったのが、来たのはチェロキー。デカくない?あの狭い橋を曲がりきれるのか?という不安も、余裕~。デカいのにクルって回る。すごいねぇ。

で、そのままガソリン入れにいったら70Lとか入って、レギュラーなのに、価格も下がったはずなのに、11,000エン超え。たまらずカードでお支払い。更にそのまま走って・・・気づけば相模湖。走り過ぎやろ、それは。いやーそれにしても快適。

山は少し色づき始めてて、いい季節です。
