It has recently been a little bit quieter on this blog. I missed to mention many things of importance that would have had its place in the thematic spectrum of this blog. From the commemoration days of the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6th and 9th 1945, and the following end of the war on August 15th (with the formal signing of the Surrender on September 2nd and how it was celebrated in China this year, for instance) to various travels of mine from Matsumoto to the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route to Okinawa (not in one trip).
And as much as I would have liked to write about everything, time was – despite the end of classes – not on my side. It was for a greater part occupied by thinking about my academic future and trying to find a place in Heidelberg.
Now, as it’s raining outside due to the 18th typhoon by now (the 19th is already on the weather map but is said to narrowly pass Japan), I finally get to post again. There will be a musical piece matching this weather in the next post, so be prepared: fluctus excitare in simpulo.
