The Size of Receptor

Everyone seems to have own size of receptor.

For example,

one heart is like a ceramic mug.
It need to be poured alot to be full-filled, and need to pour alot to refresh the liquid inside.
A ceramic mug appears robust, but actually very fragile. It could easily fracture into fragments when it fell down.
The freshness of the liquid inside is unrecognizable from the outside.

Another heart is like a flute glass.
It does not need to be poured alot to be full-filled, and does not need to pour alot to refresh the liquid inside.
A flute glass is delicate and very fragile as it looks. It could easily fracture into fragments by subtle shock.
The freshness of the liquid inside is recognizable from the outside.

One need to give and receive a sea of expressions to stay healthy.
Another doesn't express so much, but doesn't require so much expressions.

It is not the quality of feelings, the quantity of feelings related to the size of receptor.
Larger size you have, take you more time to give and receive, deeper from and to few.
Smaller size you have, no need to spend so much time to give and receive, lighter from and to all.
The similar size of receptor holders are generally comfortable with one another.

But no worry,

you could get along well with any size of receptors, if you understand you and their size of receptor ;-)
Enjoy the different types of good relationships!

Shinjuku Typhoon (JuJu)

In Spring, there's a lot of days that particularly fine, warm and windy.
I was walking Shinjuku street to do some preparation shopping for moving to Dubai, UAE.
My last long stay in the foreign country was Canada 2004-2005, I was preparing tough boots and thick long socks, now I'm preparing breathable athletic shoe and thin short sockes ;-)

When I walked pass the south entrance of Shinjuku station, I was luckily found fantastic guitarist again. The JuJu's soothing blues rock guitar instrument were cutting through the strong spring wind. His sound reminded me Joe Satriani as he writes in his brochure that he had influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Steve Morse, John McLaughlin, Eric Johnson, Wes Montgomery, Django Reinhardt, Chet Atkins, and etc... well, who doesn't like them if you are blues rock lover :P JuJu were there to promote his guitar class held in his house. But not only a teacher, he also plays in the band called SPIRAL, the Japanese style progressive band by guitar, bamboo flute, electric keyboard, and vocal.

He was such a comfortable subject to take photo. I could allow myself to let out my passions through the lens when I encounter the passionate subject.
It was a weekday afternoon, yet still caught the people walking.

If all happen evenly,
the sun comes out as much as the sun goes down.
the death comes as much as the birth comes.
the sadness comes as much as the happiness comes.

It's unnecessary to get depressed
if you know someone is in the happness
when you are in the sadness.

BBBB (Black Bottom Brass Band)

Black Bottom Brass Band ;-)

I encountered a Jam Session at near the JR Takadano-baba station(2nd station from Shinjuku by Yamanote-Line, towards Ikebukuro) yesterday.
Some from Waseda University near by, some from weekend musician, and from the BBBB!
Tamotsu who plays
sousaphone in the Black Bottom Brass Band, caught my eyes by the size of his instrument(yup, the "B", "B ", "B", "B", logo on the sousa, too ;-) and his air of cheerfulness. People in the session were looked a little tense, the firm expressions in their face and sounds.. could be because they just had started when I walked pass. My lens received strongest energy from Tamotsu in the group when I was there.

The Black Bottom Brass Band plays all over Japan. Good luck!

Mundane Life

Try to live mundane life.
That give you the best days.
Mother told her child.

I don't wanna get old, mom.
I wanna stay in child.
The child said.

The child have gotten old now
But he hadn't found what his mother said.
