冬景色 2 (Winter Scenery 2)


 田が黄色く見えるのは、実ったイネを刈り取った後にまた延びた葉が枯れているもので、いずれ耕されて土に混ぜ合わされるのであろう。2010年12月12日、堺市・菱木で撮影。

The yellow things on rice fields are the withered rice leaves that grew after the harvesting of rice. They will be mixed with soil when plowing is made. The photo was taken on December 12, 2010, at Hishiki, Sakai.

Exchange of Words with Friends

[From Chiara Maieron (chiamai)] Hi Tatsu :) curiously we tweeted almost simultaneously about the 10-year old discovering a supernova! (But my tweet was in Italian.)

[To Chiara] Hi, I tweeted about the 10-year old via "The Tatsuo Tabata Daily" and "bit.ly". So I didn't notice yours. Are you fine?

[From Chiara] Thanks, I'm fine, looking for a job but with some perspectives. Had forgotten about "The Tatsuo Tabata Daily"; Will start reading it again.

[To Chiara] http://bit.ly/hdU112 is convenient to find useful tweets without seeing the timeline of Twitter. I heartily wish good luck for your finding a job!

[To 高木六玄] 大阪へ行く用事があり、旭屋書店で『定本 解析概論』を眺めて来ました。古い版で学んだ私にはモダンすぎる感じ。ハハハ。その隣に高瀬正仁・著『高木貞治 近代日本数学の父』(岩波新書)も並んでいて、それを読みたい気がしましたが、積んどく本の処理に忙しい今、購入は遠慮しました。

[From 六玄] あはは。いわゆるジェネレーション・ギャップというやつですね。私にとっては逆に『定本 解析概論』の方が読みやすく、さらに言うと画面上の方が読みやすく感じるでしょう。 私は今幸いにもあまり積んでないので、今読み中の本を処理したらソレに手を出してみようと思います。
