Never go to a place you have no connection to – today’s polemic.
February 18, 2023 It’s Saturday morning, still dusky and just after 6:00 before sunrise. Today is supposed to be sunny and the temperature is supposed to rise to 14 degrees Celsius, so the washing machine is spinning with joy? The washing machine is spinning happily.
Yesterday, my brother-in-law sent me a picture of his mother-in-law’s new house that she moved into this past February. The house they originally lived in was almost half a century old and they were concerned about repairing the roof, so they chose the option of tearing it down and building a new house instead of remodeling. They started construction in the fall of 2022 and moved in on February 12 after the completion of the project.
The house was designed by his brother-in-law, an architect, and is a one-story compact and modern residence. The land and building had a condition that it could not be re-built…was there some loophole? It seems that they were able to build a new house without any problems. (Details are in a previous post on this blog.)
It’s been less than a week since we moved in, so it’s still a bit untidy, but my mother-in-law, who just got out of the hospital and my son, who is in his 80s, worked very hard to unpack and organize everything from cardboard boxes, and it’s paying off.
It’s nice to have a new house. It reminded me a little of my own experience. In my case, I built a house when I was in my late thirties, but after spending a little more than a year in a place I visited on a job transfer, I suddenly had the idea to build a house. I built a house in my late 30’s. I spent a little over a year in a place I visited for a job transfer. Before and after that, I had been trying to build houses in various places, but I guess it was fate. When the decision is made, it is as if a puzzle is put together. It is like a puzzle that just clicks into place. I would like to cherish the relationships with people as well as with land.
Never (ever) go to a place where you don’t have a connection with the land (you can’t go there)
Suddenly, this is today’s polemic (lol). I have encountered many different lands in my transfers and travels, but when I look around the world, the earth really is a big place. There are really only a few places that I can visit during my lifetime. Some people may end their lives in the place where they were born. I would like to cherish the lands that I have had a connection with and will have a connection with in the future.
This is a continuation of the picture of the newly built house.
This is my brother-in-law’s room. And the water area…
It’s so spick and span.
The dining table where parents and children are nurturing together is also shining. Due to the recent rise in construction costs, the initial estimate had to be increased by several million yen. However, they may have been lucky to make up their minds early. It seems that construction costs will not go down from now on.
