I arrived in Japan on June 1st.
I was able to officially register my residency in Goto on June 15th.
In many aspects of my life, I seem to be going with the flow without thinking,
And yes, I gave proper thought to these "dates" as well.
I left Canada on May 31st and arrived in Japan on June 1st.
Moreover, the residents of Goto said,
"You will come at a good season."
So I thought, "Great!"
However, when I actually arrived, I realized that it might have been the opposite of what I thought.
"Oh dear, you will come during an awful season..."
I'm not good at reading between the lines...
So, after spending 23 years and my body is fully accustomed to the Canadian climate,
The humidity is terrifying enough to fog up my phone's lens,
I also recently learned that the kitchen exhaust fan is so powerful
Every day is a learning experience.
Other residents of Goto says,
"You shouldn't move to Goto during this season!
(But I'm already here...)
This season is indeed challenging, and not just my personal opinion; even locals agree.
I used to have confidence in my physical strength;
I managed to recover by drinking saltwater and receiving distant Reiki.
By the way, there was a liquid I saw at "Satou no Shio" in Hantomari village. I asked,
"What is this for?"
She said, "It's good to drink when you are feeling unwell."
It might be helpful for summer fatigue or heatstroke. I'm sure it's rich in minerals and salt components.
And regarding the date of the 15th, in ancient times,
So, even though it was frustrating that it took a while to obtain
It was like, "Here is another sign!"
When I was four years old, I lost my father at a young age.
Becoming a resident of Goto on a day to give thanks to the moon (my father) and teaching my first Jikiden Reiki class in Goto on my father's memorial day, July 4th, I can't help but think there was some celestial arrangement behind it.
(I tend to connect things this way.)
So, that's the story of how I value dates and such.
That's all for today.
