When a lot of Christmas lights started to appear in the city, I just wondered if it was possible to dance under such lights. I started dancing Cuban salsa in June last year, and was enjoying it. Firstly, I thought about finding somewhere which has space enough to dance, and play just one song, then dance and leave. I asked my most favorite friend to dance with if he would help my dream become reality. However, his answer was no. He told me that the lights are every one's so we can't occupy. He also asked me if I have the way to play music there. It was a disappointing moment for me. I was sad. However, I couldn't give it up. A few days later, I told some friends about my idea when I went to take a lesson. And you know, I got a positive reaction from them!
Thus, my small dream was carried to be reality owing friends. Four people gathered beside the Christmas tree and we danced! And that night definitely became one of the most impressive days in my life.

There are great people around me and I kind of envy their skills or passion that they create something and sharing with people. They do what they want to do, and it brings someone small happiness. As an example, let me talk about my sister. She has been making Tsumamizaiku -A kind of accessories for kimono- for some years and she is getting better and better. These a few years, she sometimes goes to handmade market and sells the stuff she made. She is such a modest so she doesn't set a high price on her work. But if you go to stores you'll be surprised how expensive those stuffs are! She just likes making them and feels happy when someone likes her stuff and uses it! So, I whenever I find someone who seems to be interested in those things, I always show them some pictures of my sister's work and let them know that they can order those things to my sister with a good price. I believe she feels more comfortable when she knows what they want and the thing is promised to be used :)
