The bicycle in the picture is a bicycle that has been used for over 20 years. I bought a sale item at a home improvement store. It came with a 3-speed transmission and was purchased for about 7,000 yen at that time. I bought it first and then did it.
It was a sale item, so the tire punctured in about a month. When I took it to a bicycle shop, I was told that I was wearing cheap tires, so I should use good tires. Then, I changed the tires together with the tubes. Looking closely now, it was the tires and tubes used in electric bicycles. Then, I made the bicycle key a highly crime-preventive key.
So, without being stolen, the bike has never been flat for more than 20 years. The good thing is that the chain is all covered and the chain doesn’t rust. From time to time, remove the screws from Kure 5-56, remove the cover and lubricate the chain to make the petals much lighter.
I can’t do much maintenance, so I can only do oiling, so I ask the bicycle shop to do it.
What I’ve done so far is that I’ve been riding for a long time, so the resin part of the grip of the derailleur has deteriorated and I replaced it. The price wasn’t that high. Then the bike light broke, so the bike light put a folder to attach the flashlight. The flashlight is usually removed and turned on only when needed. Whenever I leave my bicycle, I also remove the flashlight. I bought the holder on Amazon for about 300 yen.
After riding for more than 20 years, it gets damaged, so I replaced the front basket and saddle of the bicycle. Saddles were said to be cheaper after all to replace than to buy a saddle cover. Then, recently, the brakes started to become squeaky, so I had my bicycle brakes repaired. By the way, I replaced the bicycle bell after riding it for more than 20 years.
Bicycles rust. That’s why I made my own bicycle cover. I will post a link, so if you are interested, please have a look.
I think I’ve been using it for over 20 years because I put on good tires and made the keys highly crime-preventive. Change your new bike to a security key. In fact, a newer bike than this one was stolen. It was the key I bought.
As soon as you buy it, exchange it for a security key. Cheap bicycles often have only a decent key. Good tires and tubes are puncture-free and very easy to ride. I haven’t had a flat tire for over 20 years. I feel that this is the most important thing for using a bicycle for a long time.
In this way, I’ve been riding a cheap bike I bought at a home improvement store for over 20 years. It’s not shiny, but I can use it without hesitation and it’s very convenient to use. I hope it helps.
This time, I would like to write about a comfortable life. This time, I will write it in a story style.
I grew up “morning glory” at school when I was little. This flower blooms in summer and blooms only in the morning. Since the vines will come out, you will need a support. This is a cultivation study at a Japanese school.
After the learning, the morning glory will produce seeds when the flowers open. Perhaps my mother threw the seed into a corner of the house.
Then, the morning glory, which has a very strong nature, sprouted steadily in early spring. Then an old bicycle was placed in place of the stanchion. Then, the morning glory became bigger year by year and bloomed very splendid flowers.
When I was young, I was very impressed to see this big flower. At that time, there was a writing contest at school. It was a spelling of this morning glory scene.
Writing the specifics that I experienced was easy, but it was a very difficult subject for me at the time. So nothing was evaluated.
However, it was so beautiful that it touched my childhood. The flowers contained fresh air in the morning, and the flowers were exposed to the sunlight in the early summer morning and were very powerful when they became clusters. As soon as I woke up every morning, I ran to see the morning glory and rushed there.
Thinking about what people work for and what they enjoy nature for, I always sketch my favorite landscapes and release the shutter.
Maybe humans can’t beat plants. With that in mind, I admire the trees reflected in many flower photographs and landscapes.
Plants provide comfort. So, my heart is refreshed. For a while, it was called ozone, but this is too scientific.
There are also pictures of buildings and cityscapes. However, I sometimes feel that I cannot match the gentle comfort that nature brings.
Because there are different facial expressions throughout the year. Then, the weaving landscape is attached to the artificial building and even changes the expression of the building. That’s how we naturally get the leeway of our hearts.
This is an unmistakable fact, through which we need to be humble and love nature more.
Sometimes I can’t afford it. At that time, look around. Usually there is no nature there.
I think it will give you an idea of how man-made objects take away people’s minds.
I feel that the leeway of my heart is a blessing from nature. Therefore, people who live surrounded by nature often feel happy. The city is very comfortable. Life is not inconvenient. But the minds of modern people seem a little tired.
On October 26, 2021, a press conference for the marriage of Princess Mako was held from 14:00 Japan time. It was very simple, and it read aloud the manuscript prepared in advance for about 10 minutes.
In addition, the reporter’s question was very unacceptable to the two, so I handed it to the representative of the reporter who came to cover the answer document. This may have happened as a result of struggling with the mass media to get married.
The most impressive thing was that Mako announced her “mental illness” along with her marriage report. Mako’s warm words were attached to it.
“I pray for a society that protects my heart and continues to live.” I was very impressed. This word is a word I would like to share with you. It is a word that you can feel the personality of Mako.
In support of Mako, Kei Komuro is in a studio in New York, USA, and the two begin their marriage. For three years, the two spent without ever meeting.
There are many handicap.
A reserve, slightly over 100 million yen, is usually paid to leave the imperial family. She declined this. No wedding was held. This is unprecedented.
Freedom is equal, so it’s happy that anyone can get married regardless of their status. This is very important and everyone is equal. This is a very important thing in their lives.
They are very modern.
Then, the imperial family becomes a big milestone. The emperor of Reiwa is a girl. The emperor’s younger brother, Akishinomiya, has two girls and one boy.
The Japanese imperial family, which has inherited the male throne, has “one” male. Therefore, there was a lot of discussion about admitting females. However, Mako leaves the imperial register. So admitting exceptions is also relevant to the imperial tradition.
Some people may find it nonsense, such as “male” or “female” in this era. Many countries allow women.
From now on, I would like to watch the Japanese imperial family quietly and warmly.
As the times change drastically, I feel that the imperial family is at a major turning point.
“Isshin Fran”. This word expresses how the mind is not disturbed. “One heart” is written as one heart. “Undisturbed” means not disturbed. Yojijukugo is an old word that is read like a Chinese sentence.
In other words, the meaning of words has a very long history. I still feel that the words spoken are very valuable. I always have this word in my heart.
That’s because it’s very difficult to never be disturbed at any time. It’s very difficult to be in such a state of mind.
There is a “heart” that nurtures this “unwavering heart” and never treats things lightly, but rather concentrates on things carefully.
In modern times, the “mind” is respected for individual freedom, and there are various ways of “mind”. It is also personal freedom, and in this modern era it cannot be denied.
However, the attitude of life is that it is not good to take a light look at things and deal with one thing easily in order to get things done or become socially recognized.
I think it’s important to deal with things in a “one-hearted manner” no matter what the good way of life is.
In other words, take all the small things seriously. The accumulation of good little things is the foundation for a good life, and it is a solid foundation.
Building up such time will never be a “regret” in later life. Life can make big decisions. That decision is not always correct.
However, the decision you make with “one-heartedness” does not cause “regret”, and you can “convince” it because it is a decision you made yourself.
There are many different lives, but only time is irreversible. This is the most equal thing in modern times.
I feel that it is important to live in a “one-hearted manner” in order to live a life that is “convincing” rather than “regret”. There are various people. However, it is important to live seriously. Because I think that trust is born and surrounded by good people.
There is a wonderful environment where you can’t buy with money. People are always lonely. Born lonely and dying lonely. So life is yourself. Taking responsibility for yourself also means knowing your limits.
That is why “one-hearted unrest”.
In modern times, having a lot of money can make the person seem to have a good life. But that’s a mistake, and while you can live your life comfortably, it’s not a condition for “happiness.”
There are many things that can be solved with money. So life is comfortable. But be aware that the “human heart” cannot be bought with money. You need some money in your life.
But living as a human being and dying as a human being does not require excess money.
The most necessary thing is the “hearts of the people” who are willing to say goodbye.
The values of the mind can vary greatly from person to person. So there is a lot of controversy, which also leads to philosophy. Therefore, this sentence is not absolute.
Because there are different values. I will not deny this.
Because there is diversity there.
That is why people suffer and suffer. Then, look for a place of heart. There is no answer in life. I think it is life itself to walk while asking yourself questions.
This work is a representative work of Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919), “Miss Irene Khan Danver” (produced in 1880). Renoir is a famous Impressionist painter in Paris, France.
Renoir’s work was very much liked by the rich people of the time. Therefore, many of his works depict rich people.
He often appears in social circles, and Renoir’s son was also active in social circles. Therefore, he is a painter who lived in a very gorgeous world.
Many painters are rarely evaluated by society during their lifetime, and their works are often socially recognized after their death.
As a painter, Renoir was in a very privileged environment. His colors are also very diverse, and his oil paintings are sometimes thick and elegant. The accent, which inserts a gorgeous color into it, feels Renoir’s talent.
Even if you actually look at it, there are many very beautiful works.
Meanwhile, there was one Renoir’s work. The work was a work depicting a Renoir maid. The lesser-known work is quite different from the traditional Renoir work. Because the chest is disturbed. It is such a sexy work. There is no glitz there.
Renoir’s relationship with women was gorgeous. Therefore, it was very difficult to get them drawn. It is a work in such a situation.
Renoir had an era of underlaying, but his “life as a painter” was happy. Therefore, as a common painter, I can’t find any dark works. As an Impressionist, Renoir is a well-known person.
This work is the work of “The Dance of Moulin de la Galette” (produced in 1876) and is one of the most acclaimed works of the Impressionists. At that time, it is difficult to leave such people as a scene in an era without photographic technology. This painting is enough to recognize Renoir as an Impressionist.
I often like to see his work. Because there are many very beautiful works. This time, I wrote about Renoir’s life and the figures that appear in his work.

I will not write the entire book this time. I would like to take up this “recommendation of learning” while pinching the points of concern. Here is this. According to the teachings of the West, a government made up of good people becomes a good government.
Following that, there is this. The point is that “uneducated ignorance” is said to be particularly stupid. In short, studying makes people smarter and the nation prospers. Yukichi Fukuzawa taught that people are equal and that studying is important. There is no one in Japan who cannot read letters. Yes, it is established in the Constitution as a basic human right.
Japan has no inequality in studying. So, no matter how poor it may be, it has the opportunity to study, and by status, by its affluence, it has the opportunity to rise to life on an equal footing. Is written.
Maybe the world isn’t going in that direction. Wealth is now biased, and that wealth also produces wealth. However, some people are in the game. Rather, I feel that there are more such people.
Japan is different, even though it is a capitalist country. Yes, Japanese people don’t donate much. However, he pays a lot of taxes. This is the duty of the people. Therefore, it serves the underprivileged people socially, and this is returned in various ways.
I feel that the basis of this is education. Because I wrote it above. Yes, studying is essential to becoming a good nation, and it becomes a good nation. Studying is a place to learn the reasoning of things.
So it’s not just studying, it’s learning the norms of things. In other words, it is moral. I understand the reason for things. In other words, society is stable. This should not be the case for some people. Not all people will achieve it without the opportunity to study.
I read a book to win before. However, the more I read it, the more it felt foreign body sensation. Because there is no morality. With morality, it is not a dispute. There are many morally immoral countries in the world. War is caused by various interests.
But that’s unfortunate. Because you lose the opportunity to study. What I would like to emphasize here is that if we have equal opportunities to study all over the world, we feel that there are “good nations” and “good people”, which will lead to world peace.
In the economy, it is competitive. But without education, the company feels like it doesn’t exist and isn’t stable. So now is the time for people all over the world to study. I wish for such a society.
This time, I wrote that the nation is made up of people, and that people can create a good society by studying. May the whole world be given equal opportunity to study for peace. That’s all for this time.
