i went to SGINZ 2010 New Year Gongyo meet with Tomoko san. in the video, Ikeda Sensei said "This is the time for opening a limitless future for kosen-rufu. In order to do this, we must first undertake fresh efforts ourselves with a completely revitalized commitment." "Young people mustn't run away from hardship. Rising to the challenge, exerting yourself earnestly, and producing concrete results--all of these efforts will become a great asset for your life."
there's one section where he spoke about photography ..... i was striked! i determined to take more meaningful photos in my life. i shed tears when sensei congratulate and commented about brass band & kotekitai for their effort in music & peace. banzai to our parents & soka gakkai. the last part of the video was sansho leaded by Sensei. we sansho together. it was my most heartfelt sansho. a prayer with deep appreciation & determination. I MUST WIN!
after that, Angie brought me to do Chiropractic massage. wwaaa.... the Taiwanese sifu is very professional. just as i lie on the massage bed, he stroke my whole body once. and he started to diagnose me. he was right about everything. how i sleep, bad habit of sleeping position, d way i take photographs, the way i walk etc. he said i was looking for death找死 if i continue to sleep at 3-4am every night. my liver will die very soon. he helped me adjust my head, shoulder, hip, backbone, buttock, leg ..... cut short .... whole body. wwaaa ........ it was SO painful! my bones were cracking so loud that Angie standing at the door looking also can hear. from today onwards: i must sleep straight, no more side sleeping, walk straight (my right leg is senget), walk&sit with shoulders back(no hunchback), sleep early & eat more(he was scared that he would break my bones coz i was too skinny) .... LOL .....
