Summer solstice

The situation here in Japan is confusing and disgusting. The epidemic is as bad as before, maybe not much worse still every day we count some hundreds of newly infected people and dozens of death even with many regulations.

Well, so, in such gloomy situation I often feel blue and feel little motivation though I try to focus on my life every day. Today too, since early morning I have felt blue.

On lunchtime I made a short walking in neighbourhood and listen to the beautiful songs of bush warbler. Good.
And today is the solstice, it would not become dark till 7pm so I have decided to make an evening walk after work. I finished my job at 5pm and went out, walked to the local park on the hill. The way going there is ups and downs… a bit tough, but from the road in hillside residential area I could see wide sky, and the sunshine was still strong…
