お友達とのお別れ

先日大切なお友達が天国へと旅立ちました。
ひょんな事からお友達になり、私が大変だった時に沢山助けてもらいました。
初めて会った時からずっと前から友達だったように接してくれて、楽しい時間を一緒に沢山過ごしました。
彼女がグアムへ来た時は、一緒に毎晩飲んで食べて騒いだり、島をぐるっと 一周ツアーしたりしました。
私が日本へ遊びに行った時も、素敵なお店でご飯をごちそうしてくれたり、ホームパーティーやお泊まり会に参加したりして楽しかった。
今年の2月にグアムであった時は、また寒くなったらこの冬も逢えるものだと、すっかり安気にしてたから、本当に突然のお別れにびっくりしてます。
彼女から沢山の優しさと幸せをもらいました。
ありがとうございます。またどこかで逢いたいです。

この間のグアムの大きな地震といい、今回の彼女との突然のお別れといい、なんだか最近いろいろと考えてしまいます。
毎日平穏で暮らせる事って、当たり前のように思えるけれどすばらしい事なんだよね。毎日を大切にしなくちゃと、こんな事があるとまたふと思います。それを忘れないように生きていかなくちゃです。
Just a few days ago, my dear friend passed away due to her illness.. I was devastated to hear that news...  
I was having a difficult time with my life when I met her.  Since the first day, she took me under her wings and treated me like we had known each other for a long time.
When she was on Guam, we laughed and talked over many many drinks and food, or we toured around the island together.  When I was in Japan, she invited me to her home party and sleep over at her place, or spend great time with her.
Since I saw her on Feb, I just believed that I would see her this winter again like she always comes back to Guam in wintertime.  But no more...sigh..
I had many many great memories with her, and she gave me so much of kindness and happiness. It is very hard.. My mind is just wondering why... I am very sad.
 Rest in Peace. I am grateful to have met you. I will see you again...somewhere again..

Recent experience of a big earthquake here(M6.9) and this sad new of my friend made me really think a lot about life.  Almost around the same time, I came across with this blog post of Leo Babauta's Zen habit.  (btw, I met his sister during my Yoga TT, and I had goose bumps to have found out she is his sister.), and I thought that I just need to remind myself this all the time
"Imagine if you had a month to live: how would you spend it?

You could spend it with the people you love, soaking up time with them, really paying attention to every word they said. You could go out and have some amazing experiences, explore the world. You could spend it learning as much as you can, in books and by studying life itself.

You could create something. You could make the world better. You could put your stamp on the world by creating art, or making people’s lives better."

最近の落書き/Doodle

ティーチャートレーニングが終わってから、ずっと落書きしてなかったから、うずうずしてきてずっと開いていなかったスケッチブックに、またマーカーペンで描いてみた♪ 
During Teacher Training, I didn't doodle...  These are the recent ones with Sharpie after the training:)

ツーショット♥️

2匹かなり接近してます(笑
ネコはウニが背後にいることを知らない。
でもこんなツーショットが見られるのすっごい嬉しい♥️
They are soooooo close:) Just because Neko doesn't know Uni is behind her. haha.
I am the happy one to see them together, and was able to capture this shot! Yay!

ネコちゃん in the HOUSE!!

ネコちゃんがお泊まりにきてます♥️
ウニとネコは仲があんまりよろしくないので、久しぶりの再会も全然嬉しそうではない。
アチコチでシャーシャー,ウゥーウゥーやってますが、
私だけがニンマリ嬉しい♪
Neko (black&white one) is staying over my house for a few days now.  They didn't get along too well even when they used to live together, so they seem not to happy to see each other.
They are hissing and growling here and there, but I AM SO HAPPY to be with my lovely girls:)

グアムのホテルヨガ

いつも通ってるヨガスタジオ以外にもグアムでヨガ出来る場所はいろいろとあるんだよ。
スポーツジムでのヨガや、ジム以外のスタジオ、それにホテルでのヨガクラスなどなど。
その中でも先週お友達と、金曜日の夕方のヒルトンホテルのハッピーアワーヨガ♪と日曜日にリーフホテルの朝ヨガへ行ってきました。

何とどちらも教くれ先生達が、同じスタジオのティーチャートレーニングを私よりも前に卒業した先輩ティーチャー達(しかもどちらもかっこいい男子先生♪)なので、彼らとは一緒に練習してるからファミリーみたいな感じで楽しかったよ♥️

ヒルトンホテルのハッピーアワーヨガ($10)は、プールサイドにある海が見えるカバナで、ヨガが終了後ワインやチーズやフルーツがでてきて、ヨガというよりも一緒に行ったヨガ友と先生のみんなで飲み会的な雰囲気で、おトク感もすごかった。いい具合に酔っぱらいとなって帰ってきました(笑

リーフホテルの早朝ヨガ(ホテルゲスト$10/それ以外は$15)は日本人の先生なので、クラスに参加する人が全員日本人だと日本語で教えてくれるの。
日本でのヨガってあんまり受けたことないから、どうやって指導するのかが聞けてすごく勉強になった。
そしてこれまたヨガ後、先生にコーヒー&スイーツをご馳走になりながら、
楽しいヨガ話に花が咲いてしまって楽しかった♪

グアムのヨガ事情がどんどんよくなってきてる気がするよ。
また機会があればあちこちお勉強にいきたいです。

There are more than several places you can enjoy yoga on Guam. Last weekend, I went to try some hotel yoga classes with my friends.  We tried Happy Hour Yoga(6pm) at Hilton hotel, and Morning yoga(6:30am) at Reef hotel.
Both teachers from these yoga classes are senior teachers from my teacher training.  I practiced yoga with them many times, so it was like visiting my family:)  

Happy hour yoga is like more than just an happy hour:) After you had regular yoga class in outside cabana, glass of wine, fruits, and cheese were served!  We stayed a bit longer and enjoy some drinks and talk with the teacher.  In the end, I felt a bit tipsy.  You can join it only for $10;)  Such a good deal, and it was so much fun!

Early morning yoga class at Reef (hotel guest$10/ others$15) is usually held at the pool side, but there was a pool maintenance so that we had a class on the top floor on this hotel.
View was awesome!!  Teacher of this class is Japanese, so if there are all Japanese, he would instruct us in Japanese.  I want to know how to give an instruction in Japanese, so it was very nice.  After the class, I hang out with my teacher and friend at the coffee shop and enjoyed endless conversation with them.  

It was nice to try other places to do yoga. I really think yoga is spreading wider on Guam. Yay!

just want to share

I came across with these videos and found out this person Jason Sliva.
Jason Silva is Television personality, filmmaker, and performance philosopher( from Wiki)

I cannot really explain well, but some of his ideas just got stuck in my brain.
Language he uses is a bit difficult for me sometimes, but I admire how beautiful and enthusiastic he talks. and.. I had a huge crush on him:) 

Something haunts me so badly, and I just feel the need to share this with someone..
