Such a lonely word

.
Honesty

If you search for tenderness
it isn't hard to find
You can have the love you need to live
But if you look for truthfulness
You might just as well be blind
It always seems to be so hard to give

Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
And mostly what I need from you

I can always find someone
to say they sympathize
If I wear my heart out on my sleeve
But I don't want some pretty face
to tell me pretty lies
All I want is someone to believe

Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
And mostly what I need from you

I can find a lover
I can find a friend
I can have security until the bitter end
Anyone can comfort me
with promises again
I know, I know

When I'm deep inside of me
don't be too concerned
I won't as for nothin' while I'm gone
But when I want sincerity
tell me where else can I turn
Because you're the one I depend upon

Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
And mostly what I need from you

I must be strong

.
Tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven ?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven ?

I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven ?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven ?

I'll find my way
Through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please, begging please

Beyond the door
There's peace I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven ?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven ?

I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong

I am in love with you

.
Longer

Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens
I've been in love with you

Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you

I'll bring fire in the winters
You'll send showers in the springs
We'll fly through the falls and summers
With love on our wings

Through the years as the fire starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the pages start to yellow
I'll be in love with you
I'll be in love with you

Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens
I've been in love with you
I am in love with you

I can't cross over

.
The water is wide

The water is wide, I can't cross over
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I

Oh love is gentle and love is kind
The sweetest flower when first it's new
But love grows old and waxes cold and fades away
like morning dew

There is a ship and she sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not how I sink or swim

The water is wide, I can't cross over
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I
And both shall row, my love and I

Fantasy could never be so giving

.
Dance with me

Dance with me
I want to be your partner
Can't you see the music is just starting
Night is calling and I am falling
Dance with me

Fantasy could never be so giving
I feel free I hope that you are willing
Pick the beat up and kick your feet up
Dance with me

Let it lift you off the ground
Stary eyes and love is all around us
I can take you if you want to go
Oh oh

Dance with me
I want to be your partner
Can't you see the music it just starting
Night is calling and I am falling
Dance with me

Let it lift you off the ground
Stary eyes and love is all around us
I can take you if you want to go
Oh oh

Dance with me
I want to be your partner
Can't you see the music it just starting
Night is calling and I am falling
Dance with me

Now don't hang on

.
Dust in the wind

I close my eyes
Only for a moment and the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

Now Don't hang on
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

太平楽なモノづくり - 6

.
土曜日の嵐のような豪雨も一変しまったく気持ちの良い天気となった本日、またしてもバイク本体のレストアもせずに寄り道して遊んでおりました。ホイールを外してお掃除しなくちゃ…の準備っていうんですかね。タイヤ交換の時とかにも使う「ホイール台」です。

使う木材は「2×4」でオッケ〜なのが分かってましたのでホームセンターに行きましたところ、ちょっとキズものの端材で1m100円也を発見。3本買っても300円ってんだから安いもんですね〜2×4材ってのは。100本くらい買って東北に寄付しようかと思っちゃいました。

IMG_3754.JPG

四角いヤツは何度か作ったことがあったんですけど、なんかつまんないというか飽きちゃいまして、いろいろ考えたところ三角形が使い勝手の点でなかなか合理的だという答えに辿り着きまして。材料の長さで重量を計算すると軽量化も出来るし、カタチも面白いかな…っと。

あとはすべての端っこを綺麗に120度に切ってやるだけなんですけど、はっきり言って木工ってあんまり得意じゃないんですよね〜。仕上げは…、まぁ、なんと言いますか、そこそこって感じでしょうか。ま、300円のホイール台ですから、あんまり難しいことを言うのはやめましょう。

Once again you'll take flight

.
You can have me anytime

Here we are in a room full of strangers
And an open door
Here we are away from all dangers
But that open door is calling out again

Acting like a friend who wants to know
If you might come away
I wonder what you'll say
You wonder out again

On wings of the night
Once again you'll take flight
And I don't hear your voice anymore
Tonight's dream will end
But I'll stay long after then
And you can have me anytime

Here we are
Alone in the shadows of our lonely rooms
Here we are
We are hollows, very lonely rooms

Like a faithless child
Frightened of the wild he runs and hides
To keep from being still
We run around until we lose ourselves again

On wings of the night
Once again you'll take flight
And I don't hear your voice anymore
Tonight's dream will end
But I'll stay long after then
And you can have me anytime

太平楽なモノづくり - 5

.
バイクのレストアをしようと思ってはみたものの、目前に控えるのはサビ落しとか汚れ落しといった、あんまり面白くない作業ばっかりなもんですから、なかなか本題に入らずジタバタしてましてね。そしたら「ん?、リアサスのロッドもサビてる!。バラさなきゃ」ってなりまして。

例のサスバラし器、ゴッシ〜のところに養子に行ってるもんですから、いちいちゴッシ〜の所まで出かけてバラして組んで…ってのも面倒だなぁと。んじゃってんで「Twin Shock Compressor Mk-II」作っちゃいました。いろいろ改良してみたいところもありましたしね。

旧型は、こちら。いま見ると、カッコ悪いな〜。
http://yomuin.seesaa.net/article/148854818.html
http://yomuin.seesaa.net/article/148968743.html

IMG_3746.JPG

基本的な機構は旧型と同じですが、全体にもうちょっとカッコ良くしたいなぁって。作業中にちょっとグラつくことがあったので「足」を付けました。使わない時は畳んで省スペース化できるようにして。畳めばジャッキの幅に収まるようにしてあります。うん、これ正解。

IMG_3752.JPG

トップのリングを押さえる2枚の板の間隔を調整する所は、旧型ですと2個の蝶ネジでシコシコ合わせていたんですが、ちょっとカッタルかったので、ラジコンのコックドベルトを渡して片側をクリクリ回せばパラレルに開閉してくれるようにしてみました。これは便利度35%増しです。

IMG_3748.JPG

下側の受けは、サスをセットしてピンを入れる方法にしました。ウェスをかませて受けてるんじゃねぇ、ちょっとカッコ悪いっすもんね。差し込むピンは鎖で繋いでおきます。こういう小物を紛失したりで使えなくなっちゃうの、一番つまんないですから。

IMG_3750.JPG

てなわけで、めでたく Twin Shock Compressor Mk-II も完成してサスもバラしてロッドも磨いて、まぁそれだけのことなんですけど、また今週末も本題のバイクレストアには入っていません。「う〜ん、レストア、やりたくないよ〜」と、ダダをこねてる週末の夜ではあります。

As long as I live

.
Truly

Girl, tell me only this
That I have your heart for always
And you want me by your side
Whispering the words I'll always love you

And forever I will be your lover
And I know if you really care
I will always be there

Now I need to tell you this
There's no other love like your love
And I, as long as I live,
I'll give you all the joy
My heart and soul can give

Let me hold you
I need to have you near me
And I feel with you in my arms
This love will last forever

Because I'm truly
Truly in love with you girl
I'm truly head over heels with your love
I need you, and with your love I'm free
And truly, you know you're alright with me

太平楽なモノづくり - 4(レストアかな)

.
サイドスタンドしかないバイクをレストア(っていうか重度のお掃除とお手入れ)しようかと思い立ちまして、ガレージの奥に転がってた「片足ジャッキ」を引っぱり出してきたんですが、サビて汚くなってたもんですから「まずはコレのレストアからだな」ってことになりまして。

バラしてサビ落として細かい所を調整してってやってますと、これがなかなか手間のかかる作業でして「やっぱりレストアってあんまり好きじゃないな〜」って、ちょっとくじけ気味…。一度作っちゃったモノって、興味が薄れちゃうんですよね〜。いけないいけない、これじゃ。

IMG_3745.JPG

これまたずいぶん大昔に作ったモノなんで、細部がどうなっているのかほとんど記憶が無くなっちゃってるんですが、バラしてるうちに「はは〜ん、こうなってるのか」と、まるで人様が作った器具をバラすような面白さに包まれまして。(もちろん多少の反省もありますけどね)

ヘッド部分をちょっと凝ってありました。アタマがちょっぴり(30度くらい)回転するようになってまして、さらにフレームに当たる硬質ゴムのところが少し首を傾けられるようになってまして、どんな位置や角度にもピッタリ添うようにしてあります。う〜ん、なるほど。

IMG_3740.JPG


IMG_3739.JPG

ピロボールなんておごってますね。サビて動きが渋くなってましたが油浸けにしてしばらくゴロゴロしてやると動くようになるもんです。って、そんなにスムーズに動く必要もない所なんですが、まぁ気分気分っていうことで。で、本体のバイクに触らず一週間が経っちゃいましたとさ。

Live your story

.
If we hold on together

Don't lose your way
With each passing day
You've come so far
Don't throw it away
Live believing
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope & glory
Hold to the truth in your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end
Valley, mountain
There is a fountain
Washes our tears all away
Words are swaying
Someone is praying
Please let us come home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

When we are out there in the dark
We'll dream about the sun
In the dark we'll feel the light
Warm our hearts, everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
As high as souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and I

And we both know

.
Always

Girl you are to me, all that a woman should be
And I dedicate my life to you always
The love like yours is grand
It must have been sent from up above
And I know you'll stay this way, for always

And we both know, that our love will grow
And forever it will be you and me
Ooh your life is sun
Chasing all the rain away
When you come around you bring a brighter day
You're the perfect one
For me and you forever we'll be
And I will love you so for always

Came with me my sweet
Let's go make a family
And they will bring us joy, for always
Oh boy I love your soul
I can't find enough ways to let you know
But you can be sure of course, for always

And we both know, that our love will grow
And forever it will be you and me
Ooh your life is sun
Chasing all the rain away
When you come around you bring a brighter day
You're the perfect one
For me and you forever we'll be
And I will love you so for always

Ooh I will love you so for always

I'll be on your side

.
That's what friends are for

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well, then close your eyes and try to feel
The way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowin' you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well, you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

Whoa, and then for the times when we're apart
Well, then close your eyes and know
These words are comin' from my heart
And then if you can remember, oh

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
Oh, that's what friends are for

Whoa... oh... oh... keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowin' you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowin' you can always count on me, oh, for sure
'Cause I tell you that's what friends are for
For good times and for bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for (That's what friends are for)

On me, for sure
That's what friends are for
Keep smilin', keep shinin'

Yes I will

.
You've got a friend

When you're down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothin', nothin' is goin' right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin' to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knockin' at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin', runnin', yeah, yeah
to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yes I will

Now ain't it good to know
that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don't you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin', runnin', yeah, yeah, yeah
to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yes I will
You've got a friend
you've got a friend
ain't it good to know
you've got a friend
ain't it good to know
ain't it good to know
ain't it good to know
you've got a friend
oh yeah now, you've got a friend
yeah baby, you've got a friend
oh yeah, you've got a friend

太平楽なモノづくり - 3

.
なんとなくエクササイズがマイブームでして…といっても真面目にエクササイズすることより「それ用の器具を作ること」がマイブームなもんですから、あんまり健康的とは言えませんわね。というわけで第二弾「前後に摺り足運動器」なんてのをこさえてみました。

IMG_3741.JPG

ま、前回の「左右股開きスイング器」に比べるとなんとも構成は簡単でして、木〜切り出して、角パイプ切って、要らなくなったテーパーローラーベアリングの軸受けまわり作って…で出来ちゃいます。多少サビてるベアリングもとっておくもんですね〜、こんな時に使えるなんて。

IMG_3743.JPG

で、こうやって左右の足を前後前後ってだけの運動なんですけどね、なぜだか普通に歩くよりもかなり筋力使うんですわ。スイングと前後前後を2セットづつやったらけっこう足パンパン。ま、両方とも東急のスポーツクラブで売ってる器具の自家製パチもんなんですけどね。


IMG_3744.JPG

使わない時は、こうしてぶら下げておきます。使わない時に邪魔にならないっていうの、けっこう大事だと思ってますもんで。まぁこの状態じゃまったくナンだか分かりませんわね。って、ショ〜モないもんばっかり作ってると、気がつけば桜の見頃もそろそろ終わりな今日この頃ざんすね。

Can you change ?

.
Don't answer me

If you believe in the power of magic
I can change your mind
And if you need to believe in someone
Turn and look behind
When we were living in a dream world
Clouds got in the way
We gave it up in a moment of madness
And threw it all away

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in

Run away and hide from everyone
Can you change the things we've said and done?

If you believe in the power of magic
It's all a fantasy
So if you need to believe in someone
Just pretend it's me
It ain't enough that we meet as strangers
I can't set you free
So will you turn your back forever on what you mean to me?

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in

Run away and hide from everyone
Can you change the things we've said and done?

God knows how long

.
I'll be over you

Some people live their dreams
Some people close their eyes
Some people's destiny
Passes by

There are no guarantees
There are no alibis
That's how our love must be
Don't ask why

It takes some time
God knows how long
I know that I can forget you
As soon as my heart stops breakin'
Anticipating
As soon as forever is through
I'll be over you

Remembering times gone by
Promises we once made
What are the reasons why
Nothing stays the same

There were the nights holding you close
Someday I'll try to forget them
As soon as my heart stops breakin'
Anticipating
As soon as forever is through
I'll be over you

As soon as my heart stops breakin'
Anticipating
Someday I'll be over you

一人じゃないよ

.
みんな空の下

涙流さないどんなに辛くても
誰にも負けない強さ持ってるのは
周りを悲しませないあなたの優しさ

見つめる瞳言葉なくても
伝わるあなたの想い
負けないよって頑張るよって
何度も優しく笑うんだ

あなたの笑顔は誰よりも輝き
曇り空まで晴れにしてしまう
何度も高い壁乗り越えたから
何も怖くない一人じゃないよ
みんな空の下

言い返せなくて悔しかったよね
一人で泣いてた日々も今も繋がって
大きな花を咲かそうとしてる

小さな胸にしまいこんでいる
空に似た大きな心
泣かないでって大丈夫って
包み込むように笑うんだ

星が顔を出しあなたが眠る頃
同じ空の下願う人がいる
明日もあなたが笑っていられますようにって
見守っているよ遠い場所から
みんな空の下

やわらかな風を吹かせて
街はそっと色付いてく

あなたの笑顔は誰よりも輝き
曇り空まで晴れにしてしまう
何度も高い壁乗り越えたから
何も怖くない一人じゃないよ 
みんな空の下

Believe the very best

.
Can you feel the love tonight

There's a calm surrender
To the rush of day
When the heat of the rolling world
Can be turned away
An enchanted moment
And it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior
Just to be with you

And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we've got this far
And can you feel the love tonight?
How it's laid to rest?
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

There's a time for everyone
If they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope
Moves us all in turn
There's a rhyme and reason
To the wild outdoors
When the heart of this star-crossed voyager
Beats in time with yours

And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we've got this far
And can you feel the love tonight?
How it's laid to rest?
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

Sing a new song

.
Chiquitita

Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
You're enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go
and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

So the walls came tumbling down
And your love's a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go
and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

If love can see us through

.
Somewhere out there

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight

Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

Somebody to lean on

.
Lean on me

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me

Move on don't hesitate

.
Breakout

When explanations make no sense
When every answer's wrong
You're fighting with lost confidence
All expectations gone

The time has come to make or break
Move on don't hesitate
Breakout

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Breakout

When situations never change
Tomorrow looks unsure
Don't leave your destiny to chance
What are you waiting for
The time has come to make your break
Breakout

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Breakout

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Breakout

Some people stop at nothing
If you're searching for something
Lay down the law
Shout out for more
Breakout and shout day in day out
Breakout

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Breakout

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Breakout

Lay down the law
Shout out for more
Breakout and shout day in day out
Breakout

Lay down the law
Shout out for more
Breakout and shout day in day out

太平楽なモノづくり - 2

.
こんなご時世ではありますが、やっぱり「何かイヂりたいな〜」の欲求は抑えきれるもんではなく、前から作りたかったモノに着手してしまいました。例によって廃材のアルミ板とか、壊れたテントの骨とか、いらなくなったプラのマナ板とか集めてきまして、はい材料の準備オッケ。

IMG_3716.JPG

で、これらの部材をシコシコと切り出したり削ったり穴を開けたりして、パーツが揃います。大きいパーツはザクザク切るだけなんで楽なんですが、細かいパーツにはやっぱり手間がかかりますねぇ。ちなみにベアリングなんかも4個使ってます。ネジ類の加工も楽しみながらシコシコ。

IMG_3728.JPG

組み上げますって〜と、こんな感じに。リンク式の新式パドルみたいですね…って、そんなワケないか。幅が300mmで、長手は1340mm、重さは3.9kgに収まりました。いろんな所に軽め穴でも開けてやればずいぶん軽くなるんでしょうけど、特に軽量化の必要もないので、サボり…。

IMG_3729.JPG

開くと…というか、実際に使う時はこういう状態になりますね。はい、ナンだか分かっちゃったかな。知り合いの家で試させてもらったら、想像以上に効くんですわ〜これが。で値段を訊いたら9800円だっつんですけど、どう考えてもこんなの作れるジャン…と相成りまして。

IMG_3731.JPG

スライダーにはベアリングを2個づつ配置して踏み板がフラフラ傾かないように。マウント部分を「弧」にしてあるのでスリップアングルをゼロにしてスウィングはスムーズスムーズ。ここら辺りが今回の工作のキモでした。左右の羽根のストッパーもシンプルな形に収まったかな、と。

IMG_3732.JPG

スイングの半径をなるべく大きくしたかったのでテントの骨の長さいっぱいに使ってみました。長さはありますが、使わない時はこうして畳んで吊るしておけばぜんぜんスペースをとりません。市販品は長さは短いんですが、畳むことが出来ないのでけっこうなスペースをとっちゃうのよね。

IMG_3733.JPG

で、こうして両足を開いたり閉じたり。ももの内側や外側などの横方向の筋肉、もの凄い使います。iPodで1曲分、3分連続してやったらもうパンパン。普段使わない筋肉なんでしょうねぇ。お尻とか下腹の筋肉も使います。いくら自転車に乗っても鍛えられない部分ですね。

IMG_3738.JPG

知り合いに訊いていた問題点は、しばらく使うとローラーの軸受けがキィキィ鳴く。スイングの半径が小さいのでもっと平行に開く方が良い。重い(5.5kg)。使わない時にけっこうカサばる…などだったのですが、とりあえずこれらのネガティブは解消できたかな、と思っちょります。

IMG_3739.JPG

さてさて、あとはしばらく使ってどんな効果が出るかが楽しみです。シェイプアップに期待するというより、骨盤まわりの筋肉が鍛えられるそうなので「とにかくカラダの動きがシャキっとするよ」ということです。RLに乗る時のニーグリップも良くなるかな?。まずは継続、ですね。

Your dreams come true

.
When you wish upon a star

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

実は、我が家地方も被災してました

.
あの地震の後、ご近所で「なんかここんところ下水臭くない?」って話題が出るようになりまして、業者さんに調べてもらったところ、どうやら我が家の前の道の下に埋まってる下水管になんらかの異常があることが判明しちゃいましてね。

1_3717.JPG

とりあえず掘り返して交換する…っていう「オペレーションGesuikan」が展開されることになってしまいました。朝9時ごろから作戦は開始。まず舗装を切る機械が登場してジャ〜!っと切れ目を入れていきます。(ボクがアルミ板切るより手際良いなぁ。あの機械、欲しい…)

2_3718.JPG

あっと言う間に20mほどを往復して切ったかと思うと小型のユンボ登場で、ザックザックと土を掘り起こしていきます。綺麗に切って綺麗に掘るもんですねぇ。プロの技っていうのは、やっぱり感心させられます。(オペレーターさん、UFOキャッチャーとか上手そうだなぁ)

3C0013.JPG

で、下水管が出てきました。地震の影響で中央部分が沈下して下向きの「くの字」になってしまい、そこに汚物がつっかえて流れが滞りマンホール方向に逆流していたことが判明。下水って微妙な勾配だけで流してるんですってね。(管を外した時の画像は公開を自粛します。ゲロゲ〜ロ)

4C0014.JPG

で、新品の管を配置。ジョイントの所のパッキンなんか上手く出来てるんですねぇ。水平儀で測りながら綺麗に直線を出していくもんです。試しに水を流すと「ショワ〜ン」ってスムーズで、観衆から思わず拍手がわき起こります。(20mの長さの直線を出すって簡単じゃないですわ)

5_3720.JPG

掘った溝の片側に表面の砂利、片側に土を盛り分けておくんですね。ま〜手際の良いこと。こういう段取りが大事なんだろなぁ。こうやって見せられると「なるほど〜」と思うんですが、自分で工作してる時なんか忘れがちですね、こういうこと。(しかし勉強になることばかりです)

6_3721.JPG

小型のダンプで運んできた舗装材を盛っていくのはまた別の職人さん。路面から数センチ微妙に盛り上げて、機械でダダダダ〜って突き固めると見事にツライチ。驚くのは積んで来た舗装材がバケツ一杯程度しか余らない無駄のなさ。(パテとか接着剤に無駄を出しまくる自分に、反省…)

7_3722.JPG

何種類かの職人さんが順番に作業するんですけど、監督さんは誰を何時にスタンバイさせてクルマをどう配置して…と、まさに段取りの極地を見せてくれます。で、午後の4時ごろにはすべての作業が終了して、爽やかに去って行く後ろ姿のカッコ良さといったらありません。(キュン!)

8_3725.JPG

たかだか20mのオペレーションGesuikanでしたけど、日常のライフラインってのはこういう方々によって保たれてることを実感しましたわ。いまごろ東北じゃ何千人もの職人さんが必死に復旧作業に従事されてることでしょう。ほんと、よろしくお願いします。頑張って下さ〜い。

Don't get me wrong

.
That don't impress me much

I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart
But you've got being right down to an art
You think you're a genius-you drive me up the wall
You're a regular original, a know-it-all
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you're a rocket scientist
That don't impress me much
So you got the brain but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much

I never knew a guy who carried a mirror in his pocket
And a comb up his sleeve-just in case
And all that extra hold gel in your hair oughtta lock it
'Cause Heaven forbid it should fall outta place
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you're Brad Pitt
That don't impress me much
So you got the looks but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much

You're one of those guys who likes to shine his machine
You make me take off my shoes before you let me get in
I can't believe you kiss your car good night
C'mon baby tell me-you must be jokin', right!
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you've got a car
That don't impress me much
So you got the moves but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night

That don't impress me much
You think you're cool but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm on the long, cold, lonely night
That don't impress me much

Okay, so what do you think you're Elvis or something...
Oo-Oh-Oh
That don't impress me much!
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-No
Alright! Alright!

You're Tarzan!
Captain Kirk maybe.
John Wayne.
Whatever!
That don't impress me much!

More than yesterday

.
You are the new day

I will love you more than me
and more than yesterday
If you can but prove to me
you are the new day

Send the sun in time for dawn
Let the birds all hail the morning
Love of life will urge me say
you are the new day

When I lay me down at night
knowing we must pay
Thoughts occur that this night might
stay yesterday

Thoughts that we as humans small
could slow worlds and end it all
lie around me where they fall
before the new day

One more day when time is running out
for everyone
Like a breath I knew would come I reach for
the new day

Hope is my philosophy
Just needs days in which to be
Love of life means hope for me
borne on a new day

You are the new day

めぐるめぐるよ、時代はめぐる

.
時代

今はこんなに悲しくて
涙もかれ果てて
もう二度と笑顔には
なれそうもないけど

そんな時代もあったねと
いつか話せる日が来るわ
あんな時代もあったねと
きっと笑って話せるわ
だから今日はくよくよしないで
今日の風に吹かれましょう
まわるまわるよ、時代はまわる
喜び悲しみ繰り返し
今日は別れた恋人たちも
生まれ変わって、めぐりあうよ

旅を続ける人々は
いつか故郷に出会う日を
たとえ今夜は倒れても
きっと信じてドアを出る
たとえ今日は果てしもなく
冷たい雨が降っていても
めぐるめぐるよ、時代はめぐる
別れと出会いを繰り返し
今日は倒れた旅人たちも
生まれ変わって歩き出すよ

まわるまわるよ、時代はまわる
別れと出会いを繰り返し
今日は倒れた旅人たちも
生まれ変わって歩き出すよ
今日は倒れた旅人たちも
生まれ変わって歩き出すよ

If we had the chance to do it all again

.
The way we were

Memories
Light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were

Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me - Would we? Could we?

Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget

So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were

So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were

Those days are gone

.
All by myself

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And making love was just for fun
Those days are gone
Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
When I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore

Hard to be sure
Sometimes I feel so insecure
And loves so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself
Anymore

When I was young
I never needed anyone
Making love was just for fun
Those days are gone

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
Oh
Don't wanna live
By myself, by myself
Anymore
By myself
Anymore
Oh
All by myself
Don't wanna live
I never, never, never
Needed anyone

I will lay me down

.
Bridge over troubled water

When you're weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all

I'm on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you

I'll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

めぐり続く明日のために

.
PIECE OF MY WISH

朝が来るまで泣き続けた夜も
歩きだせる力にきっと出来る
太陽は昇り心をつつむでしょう
やがて闇はかならず明けてゆくから

どうしてもっと自分に素直に生きれないの
そんな思い問いかけながら
あきらめないですべてが崩れそうになっても
信じていてあなたのことを

本当は誰もが願いを叶えたいの
だけどうまくゆかない時もあるわ
希望のかけらを手のひらにあつめて
大きな喜びへと変えてゆこう

愛する人や友達が勇気づけてくれるよ
そんな言葉抱きしめながら
だけど最後の答えは一人で見つけるのね
めぐり続く明日のために

雨に負けない気持ちを
炎もくぐりぬけるそんな強さ持ち続けたい
それでもいつかすべてが崩れそうになっても
信じていてあなたのことを
信じていて欲しいあなたのことを

Your voice can take me there

.
Like a prayer

Life is a mystery
everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

I hear your voice, it's like an angel sighing
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like flying
I close my eyes, Oh God I think I'm falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

Like a child you whisper softly to me
You're in control just like a child
Now I'm dancing
It's like a dream, no end and no beginning
You're here with me, it's like a dream
Let the choir sing

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me
You are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer
No choice
Your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer
I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me
You are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer
No choice
Your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer
I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me

TVにウンザリしてる人は

.
青森から東京までのFMラジオが聴けます。夜は音楽中心になっちゃうことが多いんですが、昼間は現地情報やレポートなども満載です。生の情報を得るって大事ですね。また、ネットで聴ける現地のコミュニティFM局などの放送も大変興味深い内容を流してます。最近TVより、ヘビロテ。
