Noriko Ibaragi poem

二人のコック  Two Chefs

憎しみが If a dash of hatred can be

愛の貴重なスパイスなら much valued spice to love

それが少々足りなかった 二人のコックの調理には that spice was a bit lacking in their menu

so that

こくのあるポタージュにはならず their cooking did not yield creamy rich potage

二十五年かかって澄んだコンソメスープになりました rather, clear consomme soup after a span of 25 years

でも 嘯(うそぶ)きましょう Prenting as though to not know, blowing on a spoonful of hot soup

おいしいコンソメのほうが はるかに難しい Making a delicious consomme is far challenging

そのつくりかたに関してはと As far as making of it is concerned

Noriko Ibaragi

She lost her life’s partner when she was 48.

Dosa night full of spice here … no consomme tonight !

Birthday in Tokyo

TREATS! Celebrating duel March birthdays – Chirashi sushi so beautiful – Wajima laquer bowl so beautiful …Friendship so appreciated – Gochisousama:)

Signs of being very stressed – tightened jaws, stiff shoulders, tight hips, shallow breathing, insomnia, odd pain at lower back … waking up in the morning already tired… still … employing all my knowledge from yoga therapeutics towards self-care to put on a happy face. To carry on.

With intentions to make my mother’s sunset time of life, hopefully a better one has given me a renewed sense of purpose. And at all times, what’s most effective in combatting this overwhelming energy drain for a reboot is through … Gratitude … Challenging times made a bit less painful, thanks to family and friends – forever grateful. Glad to be able to reciprocate those I owe so much gratitude to, one at a time, sharing. I would not have made it without going insane or seriously sick without your support. Arigato!!

Reboot – Looong line to contend with but for this caffeine addict

The owner barista serves up the best latte … so flavorful and having tried latte art, especially for SOY MILK, all the more appreciate the prettiness of the cup. Those who tired, we know it’s very challenging to do latte art with soy milk but this barista is sooo skilled – if it were not for the huge line, it would even be better but with the pressures of constant long lines, he still manages this. I love their coffee and this statement coming from someone who has beans roasted at home and ground at home and made each morning. Still Turret’s has its own unmistakable character. Thus, each morning, line out the door spilling into the alley where Starbucks is just down 100 steps or fewer. Hands down, the winner. Here.
