Hello everyone. This meeting was held on Zoom because of the effects of the virus.
TMOM was TM. E.Y
Word of the day was conducted by TM T.A
He choose “flavor”, “fragrance”, and “香り” in Japanese.
I felt that these words were positive words and they could be a trigger to think positively in this dark atmosphere affected by the current coronavirus.
1st speech was “The Best Personal Award 2020” by TM S.H
She gave a virtual award speech as if she were Kawahara-san who instituted the ROCINANTES.
Her speech was very clear and polite, and it sounded like the real award speech.
The 2nd speech was “Value of Happiness” by TM. M.N
She talked about the slum in Dharavi, India.
It was very interesting to connect two words that felt like the opposite of “happy” and “slum”. I had a negative image for the slums like dangerous, poor, unhappy. But her speech made me change my mind.
２回目の日本語テーブルトピックスのマスターは TM S.Yでした。「５億円当たったら」といった前向きに考えさせられる質問もあり楽しい雰囲気でした。
This meeting held on Zoom had a good atmosphere. I’m sure that it made the all participants happy as much as the regular meeting in person.
