Ikebana 6/18/2014

I had composed this arrangement from Southern Cattail (ヒメガマ), Babyhands(木苺ベビーハンズ) and Thunbeng Lily(スカシユリ).

Cattails were like a cattail literally. It was interesting.

Dogwood (Hanamizuki in Japanese)

Sorry, I posted these photos again.
When I had posted them the other day, I hadn't known the name of the blossoms. Then I asked the name of it to my Ikebana teacher. I was surprised to hear the name. Oh, it was Hanamizuki! They are very beautiful now.

I like singing. One of my favorite songs is Hanamizuki, and I sing it at karaoke though I hardly go there these days.
I was very glad to know its blossoms. It was much more beautiful than that I had imagined before. It made me feel to go to karaoke again.

A Cattail is literally like a cat's tail. It was interesting.

Sorry for posting these photos again.
When I posted them the other day, I hadn't known the name of the tree that was in bloom. I then asked my Ikebana teacher to identify it for me. I was surprised to learn that it is called Hanamizuki! Its blossoms are very beautiful now.

I like singing. One of my favorite songs is Hanamizuki. I sing it whenever I go to a place that features karaoke, though I hardly go anymore.

I was very glad to have seen the Hanamizuki blossoms. It was much more beautiful in person than I could have ever imagined. It made me feel like singing at a karaoke *bar once again.

*I don't know the type of establishments that have karaoke. I have only seen them in movies, and they were always in some kind of bar.



Re: English Corrections

Hi, shiroi tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

I think there are two types of establishments that have karaoke in Japan. One is a bar which is not so big and all customers there can listen to the karaoke songs, and the other is a kind of accommodation which has many private rooms, and each of rooms has a karaoke machine, a table, and a sofa, except a bathroom. Even only one person can use the room. Customers can order drinks or food by a room phone, then they can get room services.

'in person' can be used not only human, but also things such as plants, can't it?

Answer to Sakae's question

Sakae's Question:

'in person' can be used not only human, but also things such as plants, can't it?

------------------------

My Reply:

When it is said that a person had experienced something 'in person', it refers to the person who had seen it. It may also be that of another person having been seen or experienced. The key is being physically present at the time of viewing or experiencing.

There are many ways for a person to have seen something without their not having had seen it in person.

Here are a couple of examples:

1) Through photos,TV or movies.

2) Through vision improving devices (Binoculars and Telescopes)...
although seeing something through a microscope could qualify, as you would have been in the presence of the object being looked at.

Even were you to see something live on TV, it is not in person, as you would have not been there physically. The same applies for the remote viewing of the binoculars and telescopes, for the same reason. However, if you could see the object with enough detail with the unaided eye...then yes, you could have seen it in person. Ex. - A sports event at a large stadium. Even though you would sometimes look through binoculars at the event, you are still physically present, and you could still see the objects with the unaided eye.

Don't get these mixed up:

1) In person - as explained.

2) Live - such as on TV...watching something remotely as it is happening.

3) First hand - Such as by being there, or as seen live, through remote viewing devices. This is the most general category. As it is ambiguous, it would often need further explanation.
