活き活き! 唐戸市場

地元の漁師が捕った魚だけでなく、養殖した魚を直接販売し、野菜や花などの農産物の直売所もある唐戸市場は、地方卸売市場としては珍しい形態です。4月と10月には食のフェスティバル「唐戸市場祭り」も開催され、日本中からやってきた観光客で賑わいます。

活き活き! 唐戸市場

商売人だけでなく、一般の人も魚を買うことができる唐戸市場。午前7時までは“玄人”さん、午前9時以降は“素人”さんで混み合うとのこと。外国人客も数多く訪れます。
市場を楽しむポイントは、ここで働いている人たちとの会話を楽しむこと。見慣れない魚を発見したら、美味しい食べ方を尋ねてみるのも手です。(金土日は観光客であふれています。)

からと市場市場の中には、観光客、玄人さん、

両方の胃袋を満たすレストランがあります。
玄人さん向けのレストランは比較的早い時間でクローズしますが、

「海転からと市場寿司」は昼は午後3時まで、

夜は9時まで開いていました。

とらふぐとくじらの握りは、是非、堪能したいもの。

海産物ふくのあぶり焼き、ムラサキウニとバフンウニをブレンドしたマイルドな味わいの赤間うに、ぽん酢で食べたい鯨ベーコ
ン、身と肝を使用したあんこうの雑炊スープ。下関ブランドの海産物の数々です。

海産物「唐戸市場は金、土、日曜日がオススメ。寿司がずらっと並ぶのよ」と、藤野商店の美人女将、藤野眞里子さん。
オススメは南氷洋の調査捕鯨でのくじらのみを使った鯨ベーコンでした。

海産物「ふく専門店」と看板を掲げた魚重の店頭は、ふく刺し、ふくちり鍋セット、ふくから揚げ、ふく一夜干しなどふく尽くしの商品が並んでいます。「やっぱりオススメはとらふく大皿セット」と中谷めぐみさん。


 

歴史を感じる下関散歩

関門海峡をすすむ船。異国を思わせる船体の色や国旗を見ていると、このまちが海峡の町であると実感します。明治、大正時代に建てられた建造物からは、国内外の物資や人がこの地に集まり、盛んに交易してきた息遣いを感じることができます。

 みもすそ川公園から臨む関門橋

みもすそ川公園から臨む関門橋。下関市壇ノ浦と北九州市門司を結ぶ、全長1068m、幅6車線の壮大な橋です。日に4度も流れの向きを変える海峡の急潮は、源平最後の合戦の舞台となった、壇ノ浦の古戦場。現代では大小約700 隻もの船を運んでいます。

風雲児・高杉晋作

「風雲児・高杉晋作」の物語を語ってくれたのは歴史体感紙芝居、語り部の南山格子さん。他にも壇ノ浦の合戦や耳なし芳一の物語などの歴史紙芝居を、みもすそ川公園で毎日上演しています。

九州は目と鼻の先

門司港にたたずむと、すぐ目の前に見える北九州市。
それでも2つの県を隔てるのは潮の流れの早い海流です。
現在ある橋と3 本のトンネルには、人々が対岸の人たちと何とか交流しようとした足あとがありました。

九州は目と鼻の先

関門スタンプ関門海峡の海の底、約60m のところに、世界で唯一、海峡を人が歩いて渡ることのできる道があります。1937 年に掘削を開始し、途中、太平洋戦争による工事の中断を経て、1958 年に開通した全長約780m の国道2号線、関門トンネルです。
トンネルは上3 分の2 が車道なので、道を歩いていると聞こえてくるのは車の音。原付も20 円を払い、押して歩けば通ることができます。ここは観光スポットのみならず、暮らす人の生活道路でもあるようで、買い物や通勤で利用する人も多いそうです。
「ウオーキングやランニングで日焼けしたくない人は、よくこの道を使うようです」と下関市役所の藤上さん。
福岡県と山口県の県境は1本の白いライン。ここが記念写真の撮りどころです。

JALでいく

JALでいく7 時35 分発のJALで山口宇部空港へ。4 月に訪れた時とは違い、荒天の中を下関まで小1時間。訪れたみもすそ川公園では雨の中、八艘跳びの義経と碇を担いだ知盛像と共に歴史体感紙芝居の語り部・南山格子さんが待っていてくれていた。市場をはじめお会いした方々の素敵な笑顔に触れるうち、いつしか天候のことも忘れ、すっかり下関の魅力に嵌ってしまった。それにしても、やはり本場のふくは美味い。また来ようーっと。 木村政雄

歴史をはぐくむ
〝ふく〞の味

ふく

下関に行くといえば必ず聞かれるのが「ふぐを食べに?」という言葉。皿の模様が見えるほど、薄く切ったふぐの刺身は圧巻。もはや芸術品と呼びたくなるようなふぐ料理は、食にとどまらず、下関の文化を語るときに欠かせない要素です。

豊臣秀吉の政権下で禁制となったふぐ。
それが解かれたのは遠く歴史を下った明治21年、当時初代内閣総理大臣を務めていた伊藤博文の令によります。きっかけはまさにこの下関、今ではふぐの名店として全国に名を知られるようになった『春帆楼』で食したふぐを「これは美味い」と賞賛したことによります。

ふぐ料理といえば刺身が王道ですが、ふぐちり、唐揚げ、ひれ酒、白子など、捨てるところなく味わえるのもふぐの特徴です。

「ふくはコースで食べても飽きない魚です。なぜなら刺身と唐揚げとでは、まったく味が変わるでしょう。天然もののふくは、ぽん酢をつけなくてもおいしく味わうことができます。歯ごたえがあるので、淡白な中にもさまざまな味をゆっくり楽しむことができるのがふくの良さ」と春帆楼の手柴鋼太郎支配人。

下関の人々が「福を招く」として〝ふく〞と呼ぶ魚。大人の味覚です。

下関の南風泊市場は、ふぐ専門の魚市場です。ここでは「袋競り」と呼ばれる独特な競りスタイルが伝統です。用意はいいか、場を閉めてもいいかを意味する「エカエカ」という競り人の掛け声と共に、袋をかぶせた手の中で仲卸人が指を握り、提示額を示します。ふくの状態を見極め、一瞬にして金額を決める「袋競り」は、魚市場の男たちの戦いの場なのです。

スペースシャトルでふぐの刺身を食すために

水産大学校 芝恒男教授平成15 年、下関市内の中学校に日本人宇宙飛行士・古川聡さんを招いた交流会にて、「下関のふぐを宇宙でも食べられるようにできますか?」という下関市長の問いかけに水産大学校からの出席者が「できます」と答えました。その特命を受けて、ふぐの長期保存の研究に取り組んだのが、食品微生物分野を研究する芝教授のチームでした。
内臓や外皮などを取り除き、無菌にしたトラフグの刺身を50日間、冷蔵・熟成させることに成功したのは平成20 年。無菌のトラフグフィレーの機械化製造ラインを完成させ、洋食のレシピも開発しました。平成23 年には加圧して滅菌する方法にも成功。保存開始から50 日のトラフグを分析すると、うま味成分のイノシン酸は減少したものの、グルタミン酸は10倍以上に増えていたとのこと。「現在、ふぐ以外の魚や牛肉でも加圧滅菌を研究中です。実現には期待が持てます」と、希望に燃える研究チームです。


競り人は役者
相手が誰でも相場を仕切る

下関のふぐの水揚げは、全国の9割を占めるといわれます。その売買が行われるのが「下関南風泊市場」です。

ふぐの競りはユニークな「袋競り」。下関唐戸魚市場株式会社を預かる松村久社長も、30代の頃に12年間、競り人を務めました。
「みんな競り人に憧れてこの世界に入ってくるが、気が強いかとか、正直であるかという要素を見極められて競り人になるんだ。そろばんの2、3級くらいを持っていれば仕事を覚えるのも早いが、最近は電卓に慣れているから、これからどうなるかな」

競り人としての松村社長のポリシーは相場が異常に加熱することなく、どの船もあまり差がなく売ることだそうです。
「買ってくれる相手は社長さんだけど、自分は役者だと思って仕切っていたね。競りが終わるとただの人なんだけど(笑)」

終わるとただの人なんだけど(笑)」 ふぐは高くてなかなか手が出ないというイメージがあります。しかしもっと若い人にも食べて欲しいと松村社長。

「私にしても『ふぐ屋だ』と言うと、『おお! そうなのか』と関心を持たれて、いろいろな人との出会いがありました。ふぐは人と人をつなぐ魚ですね」

下関ふぐ市場のこれからの役割は、ふぐの普及のみならず、ふぐ文化を伝えることだと語ってくれました。

9月4日(水)第78回 評判づくり研究会セミナー開催のご案内 成功したO2Oマーケティング例と、その後の評価

2013-08-26

「第78回 評判づくり研究会セミナー 成功したO2Oマーケティング例と、その後の評価 ~スカイツリーのお膝元で実施された、携帯アプリのキャンペーン~」

「O2O(オンライン・トゥー・オフライン/Webから現実の店舗等に人を誘導するマーケティング)」が注目され出して久しく、様々な取り組みや成功事例が見られるようになってきました。

今年初めの約1ヵ月、東京都墨田区、港区の両区が合同で実施した、「ケータイ国盗り合戦」。携帯電話のアプリのスタンプラリーを使った「O2O」の販促企画でしたが、この間に延べ13万人を動員、4000万円超の売上げを達成。中には北海道や大阪等の遠方からの来客もあり、集客効果に半信半疑だった各商店街の方々も、キャンペーン開始以降、増加する来店者に驚き。新規顧客を求める商店街とモバイルの位置情報ゲームとのタイアップで集客に成功、街は大きな賑わいとなりました。

しかし販売促進も話題作りも一過性ではなく、継続性が求められます。このキャンペーンが成功し一段落した今、「O2O」キャンペーンの導入に至ったポイントから、その後の影響、あらためてこのキャンペーンをどうとらえていらっしゃるか等をお話しいただきます。
また、当地はスカイツリーのお膝元です。商店街から見た、スカイツリーのオープニングと今後についても、ご意見をちょうだいいたします。

The Eagle & The Vulture; 2 Archetypal Fowl Wants

2013-08-21

Deborah DeNicola
Though a personal is much too deeply embedded inside of the collective, outer
real truth of day by day lifetime, the discovery inside his or her private wants of
common, archetypal photographs … can be a liberating encounter.
(Jungian Desire Interpretation Corridor, 114)
Within the worldwide of archetypal symbolism birds inside of our needs from time to time suggest a non secular job. Immediately after all, they fly higher than us, nearer toward the heavens than we typically obtain ourselves. Their flexibility appears to be exhilarating. Inside of the overall body of a jet wherever we may Sports Contests, Scores & Odds – Formerly Wagerline.com perhaps uncover ourselves traveling a lot quicker and high than birds, we however absence open up air, the wind inside of our hair thus-in direction of-communicate, and we’re restricted within primarily minor seats concerning other folks, who in its place than lifting their hands entrained within just synch with ours, are coughing, consuming, sleeping, operating, or seeking even more nervous than carefree. That’s why after we abide by our high-quality feathered buddies inside wants, we think about the context of study course, yet always believe that of the heights and liberation of the spirit.
Of a Pretty massive species, unless of course we are ornithologist, we predominantly categorize the birds we look at in just desires basically. 2 significant desires I experienced at a season of religious initiation within my lifetime presented messages in excess of 2 divergent paths because of in direction of the dissimilarities within just the winged creatures and the circumstances within which they seemed. But equally wishes seemed in direction of assure rewarding excursions.
*
I experienced been steeped in just sorrow once a aspiration raised me out of my melancholy practically mechanically. At the season of the desire I experienced not been a pupil of desire function, nonetheless even within just my relative ignorance, I could possibly seem that the aspiration was a blessing. As record material, enable me country back again that I experienced dropped my dad inside of adolescence. Whenever I was 13 he endured a anxious breakdown and after I was 15 he died of a self-administered overdose of prescription drugs. He was a health practitioner, therefore I once in a while questioned if he experienced deliberately finished his everyday living. One more applicable real truth relating towards this period of time inside my younger lifetime was that my mom informed my siblings and I that he died of a middle assault. Inside of her personal surprise and ache, she soldiered upon, in no way visibly mourning, therefore that we did not categorical our grief both.
I grew up with a sure suspicion relating to my dad’s loss of life yet I held it in the direction of myself and repressed what feelings I experienced regarding these 2 unachievable many years. I was specifically getting a girl and my arrival into womanhood was impacted via what I experienced noticed, a form of tranquil and from time to time not-therefore-tranquil desperation in just my dad. I started off toward opt for boyfriends and later on, guys buddies, who would abandon me and I usually reacted with some hysterical conclusion-of-the-world wide opinions towards the termination of this kind of interactions.
As a result of the season that my chicken needs happened, I intellectually recognized that my reactions in the direction of the reduction of a lover ended up irrational and at instances, out of percentage towards the seriousness or deficiency thereof, of the connection. I “understood” that my unarticulated grief for my dad surfaced and even more exacerbated my come to feel of reduction.
Understanding Sadly, didn’t guidance the inner thoughts toward subside. Therefore Though inside my mid nineteen thirties, I was ache versus the betrayal of a gentleman I experienced been unbelievably content with, I didn’t seek out out regular treatment, eating absent in the course of 5 decades of that a several a long time back again just after a divorce. Just one working day a close friend prompt I look at her astrologer who lived upon an island within Casco Bay, exterior of Portland, Maine exactly where I was dwelling. I relished the concept of crossing the drinking water, an archetypal topic within just alone, in the direction of discover some options as in direction of why my grief was inconsolable.
I sat upon the ferry at 10 inside of the early morning, using tobacco a cigarette. Inside individuals times I’d missing my urge for food for foods and I lived upon cigarettes and spring h2o. The very clear Oct landscape problems me with its stunning auburn leaves and cerulean sky and the vibrant contrasting hues stabbed at my eyes together with an insult, the comprehensive landscape by some means provocative of my dropped joy. A working day for fans, I strategy.
Whichever the temperature, throughout that unachievable season, I looked in the direction of change each and every working day into a further explanation in the direction of mourn. The desirable vista of churning darkish blue h2o wrapped more than the speckled islands of the bay just designed me really feel my loneliness further closely. Inside my self-contained universe, just about every tune upon the radio appeared made in the direction of deliver again the impression of my companion, our passionate ritual of dancing inside his residing house. I wallowed within recollections. Pics performed in the course of my head which include some dopey chorus of the state tunes he’d unveiled me toward and but, Extremely the wailing nation diva myself, I stored bringing them back again inside obtain in the direction of question myself why it harm consequently a lot. Was it accurately the inventory cliché, betrayal, jealousy, anger and embarrassment I felt, or was it really wasting the essence of this impressive person in opposition to my daily life that brought about me this irrepressible grief? I was persuaded of the latter. Some #LINK1# variables oneself simply just comprehend.
As I debarked in opposition to the boat and became upon foot up one particular of the unpaved streets of the island, my anger was long gone nevertheless the grief puddled up within just my entire body thus that just the regular rhythm of my sighs, together with the whitecaps, one particular right after an additional washing in opposition to the boat, may perhaps persuade me I was even now residing. As clueless as the gaping gulls who waddled towards me inside appear of a hand-out, I experienced crossed the h2o towards discover an solution. As soon as upon the island, I adopted the twists inside of the filth street in accordance toward a scribbled map, my gaze drawn in opposition to the highway symptoms in direction of the wild flower gardens, the slatted fences and yards littered with tricycles and yard chairs even this late within the time. The weeds which experienced began in direction of overtake the gardens looked towards scent of decay.
I entered Mary Alice’s screened-within porch and rang the bell. Although I doubted I would track down any solace inside of the examining, I was curious as toward what she might say with out understanding me or my problem at all. But inside my 2 hour convention this stunning and proficient astrologer, a good girl cooperation of the two photosystems is required for and mistress of metaphor, was ready in the direction of offer you me causes regarding the delicate place of my psyche that generated even further really feel than the reasoning I’d labored during within my cure.
Her very first picture of me was that my palms had been trapped within just a Chinese puzzle. The further I tried using in the direction of wiggle them out, the added I found out them locked up. Without the need of becoming much too specialized, I’ll simply just say that she confirmed me how 2 Quite arduous planetary transits have been at exertion influencing my moon or feelings, and Venus, my partnership everyday living. She advisable me in direction of effortlessly surrender, in direction of sit in just my rocking chair by way of the fireplace, ingesting tea with my most loved blanket near my shoulders, enjoying my saddest nation arias letting myself toward descend into the divine abyss of decline— (the primary phrase below is divine) “Until eventually by yourself are elevated out,” she reported. “And on your own will be elevated out.” She peered at me really; “And each time on your own are, on your own will turn into anyone thoroughly fresh new.”
Upon the collective position, Pluto, the entire world of ruination and riches, experienced only entered the indicator of Scorpio exactly where it would continue being for the up coming 12 decades. She described that within addition in the direction of my particular person plight, the universe was generating an active move alone and that as we arrived nearer towards the millennium, plenty of Those ended up tapping into an awakening. Humanity alone was gearing up for a main evolutionary jump, one particular which would get countless a long time in the direction of turn out to be crystal clear. Oh yeah, the harmonious Age of Aquarius, I principle, remembering the nineteen sixties musical Hair. Thus how arrive I’m depressing? She explained my soul experienced desired this unique have an effect on and would be opening toward a fresh new explanation however to start with, because of toward Pluto’s renovation course of action, it necessary towards be stripped of psychological dependencies, thus that I would understand the correct character of delight in, which was unconditional. She discussed that I experienced 3 planets in just the 8th Place, the organic and natural household for Pluto. Later on, looking through above Pluto I arrived throughout this quotation via the eminent Jungian-Astrologer Liz Greene: “If there are a great number of planets within just the 8th, the the affected person should find out in the direction of overall look darkness inside of the experience (85).
I didn’t extremely recognize a lot astrology then, nonetheless I did realize that I experienced a wealthy 8th property and that mythically, the descent is once in a while the path into transformation and I notion of the poet Dante within his darkish woods, the legendary tale of Persephone’s abduction, Odysseus’ vacation toward Hades and the countless literary stats and writers who went in direction of the underworld right before returning with contemporary working experience in the direction of crank out towards the higher environment.
I was far too informed of the countless poets who in no way rose against their descent: Plath, Sexton, Berryman, Crane, and hence numerous of the French writers I’d examined inside higher education, as perfectly as my particular dad. Mary Alice’s astrological cause for my emergency clicked intuitively in just a direction I couldn’t reveal. As psycho-babbly as this kind of astrological phrases (“Pluto sq., Saturn transit”) sounded in the direction of me at the season, I sensed there was a little something added profound at exertion. My really feel of decline was practically disproportional in the direction of the fact of the function. Involving other aspects I found out concerning my chart that working day was the real truth that I experienced been born in the direction of get rid of my dad and with just about every refreshing decline, the authentic view of decline was brought about.
My troubled mom experienced very easily long gone upon Although my dad died. With her 4 young children within tow, she never ever authorized herself or us in direction of together grieve. It was a option technology back again inside 1963. President Kennedy loss of life preceded by means of dad’s via a few months and inside of a direction we were being by now grieving. My mom did what she idea was the straight matter. Position a person foot in just entrance of the other and shift ahead. Still I idea I experienced labored in the course of the themes of the shed dad within just my treatment method for the duration of the yrs of my divorce. Toward my marvel I learned out that Saturn, the Patriarchal Dad, was the ruler of my special astrological chart and both of those my Pluto and my Saturn, as perfectly as Mars, the entire world of war and will, had been found within just the 8th Space, the indigenous residence of Scorpio, the optimum arduous and psychological signal.
I remembered definitely the night time my dad died. A detective experienced occur in the direction of the doorway with his hat and coat. My mom stood at the railing upon the stairs and advised us our dad experienced experienced an incident and died of a middle assault. I remembered distinctly 3 terms surfacing within my brain: “he’s killed himself.” Even at 15, my private subconscious intuited the truth of the matter I didn’t literally uncover until eventually I was 20-9.
Upon the holiday back again in direction of the mainland, I felt for the 1st period for the reason that the separation as if my psychological and psychological region may presently deliver some feel. By some means believing inside of a religious rescue and restoration was the optimum heartening concept I experienced read within several weeks and I experienced acquired the impression of the “Pluto sq.” was towards obvious absent what was not “serving” my “superior reason.” I was, Incredibly only, inside hell. Incarcerated as a result of the classical God Hades, deep in just the realm of melancholy and decline.
A further status for the ruler of subterranean areas was “Plutus” which signifies “riches.” Treasures and resurrections had been in addition related with Pluto. What I didn’t recognize at that year was how incredibly lengthy the vacation would choose towards produce such treasures. Nevertheless before long thereafter, within just earnest, I was raised out by means of a heavy archetypal aspiration. I recognised it as significant through the numinosity of the visuals and the issue of psychological depth it remaining me with.
I am strolling upon the seaside with a adolescent woman who is inside my treatment. She is cranky and nagging me. I identify her towards be a true soreness in just the neck . At some truth she measures upon a twig and will become a splinter in just her foot. I attempt in the direction of consider the splinter out, and as I do, it flies against my arms, boomeranging out and then again into her brow, hitting her instantly amongst her eyes. At present I am actually fearful more than her for the reason that the splinter is made up of grow to be a wedge as significant as a meat cleaver. I transfer towards pull it out once again nevertheless as soon as I launch it in opposition to her brain, her mind splits open up inside contemporary extremely surreal planes and out flies a significant fowl. The 2 exceptionally cubically awesome halves of her brain fold back again into location as the eagle flaps its massive wings and flies earlier mentioned and over us. We maintain each individual other squealing and laughing within just awe of the chook’s electric power, performing together with giddy younger ladies and I appear a deep enjoy this woman.
This aspiration was a enormous launch. I wasn’t guaranteed of all the repercussions nevertheless I understood the lady I didn’t have to have any component of was me at 13 or 14, that it spoke of an adolescent wound, maximum most likely my dad’s loss of life, and that out of this lady’s ache experienced arrive a large chook. It appeared in direction of me the wound of abandoning boyfriend and the wound of the dad had been overlaid and experienced thrown me again in direction of the lady who experienced under no circumstances remedied, who lived with this dilemma already straight concerning the eyes. Based upon the genus, birds are once in a while affiliated with the non secular entire world, the heavens, though some which include the owl, albatross or raven are linked with even further adverse augury. Still this chook was a massive eagle with an large wingspan and what I felt in opposition to the graphic of it flapping its wings was the sheer bodily energy of its physique. It was the pleasure of witnessing that massive, muscular human body and view the power of its wings that pleased me and the youthful desire woman. It is not possible in the direction of categorical the interest and gratification we felt inside seeing the enormity of that chicken choose off.
The American and Indigenous American emblem of the eagle is very similar toward celestial omnipotence. On top of that, the eagle is related with the sunlight’s electric power. It is Zeus’s spouse in just Greek myths, and in direction of the Christian mystics, is a logo of Christ’s ascension, “ . . . as well an characteristic of John the Evangelist . . . Jung regards the eagle as a dad brand.” (Envision my question!!!) (The Herder Logo Dictionary 63) I uncovered even much more synchronistic which means in just J.C. Cooper’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of Regular Symbols: “ . . . launch in opposition to bondage . . . Alchemic: The climbing eagle is the liberated element of the prima materia . . . resurrection and the fresh lifestyle inside baptism: the soul renewed by means of grace “ (italics mine).
Within the desire there was a transformation and the mind wound was promptly fixed. It was just later on that I learned inside Freudian psychology that the foot wound is a sexual wound, the Oedipal wound versus the dad. Inside the tale of Oedipus, the youngster boy is shackled in direction of a rock with a pin all through his foot, remaining towards die in opposition to publicity. Freud linked Oedipus’ foot with the phallus, as his criminal offense afterwards within just lifestyle is towards unconsciously invest incest and beget small children with his mom/spouse. His dad experienced injured his foot and just after Oedipus escapes and is followed, he grows up and unknowingly kills his true dad.
The younger lady’s splinter or foot wound results in being a wound in just her thoughts, an subconscious challenging. Even though the wounding item is introduced, the religious energy flies out inside the style of the eagle. The alchemical gold of transformation is within the add of melancholy, as the fowl is inside the whining adolescent’s thoughts.
I felt as a result obvious and relieved that I seriously consideration my trauma was presently higher than. I felt I experienced came upon the refreshing point. Was this the “lifting out” Mary Alice experienced anticipated? By yourself will be somebody fresh new. This is not in direction of say there weren’t repeated relapses into sorrow and further more pining, still I felt I experienced a leg up versus the abysmal pit of melancholy I’d lived inside of for hence very long.
A couple times following the desire I chosen up a poem as a result of the Hungarian poet Miraslav Holub and examine the traces On your own check with the alternative, it is yet one particular term-Once again. As I go through All those words and phrases I learned I sought after toward move again into remedy.
Behind in direction of a lower seacoast metropolis an hour absent, I commenced shifting 2 times a 7 days for 2 hour and a 50 percent periods with Winona, a petite girl who grew up within just Fresh England and experienced exactly returned once paying out 20 or therefore a long time inside of Belgium and Switzerland where by she educated at the C.G. Jung Institute in just Kusnacht, outside the house Zurich. Through this year my ex and I experienced bought and crack the continues of our property. I obtained the seaside apartment and utilised some of the income for investigate. Because of in the direction of the depth of 3 analytic several hours a 7 days, for the duration of this spherical of remedy, my wishes possibly descended against the heavens and rose which includes steam versus the underworld and I may well not background them quick plenty of. Nor may possibly I prevent crafting poems. It was a greatly introspective however fruitful period.
2
It’s mentioned that the early desires within just an investigate fastened the themes for the finish research and therefore it was in just my individual knowledge. Below is my 1st aspiration (with an additional hen) in which I believe that I found out a fresh new viewpoint of myself and the effort and hard work I experienced towards do.
I am upon a eye-catching beach front. It is the condition of my regional beach front still
significantly far more tropical further which include the seashore within Clean Zealand which I lately
noticed upon the postcard I obtained versus a expensive close friend. I am going for walks with my son
and we watch within just the length, strolling in the direction of us, an aged lady putting on a
babushka and traveling a kite. My 8 calendar year outdated son is enthusiastic in direction of preserve the kite.
As the aged girl solutions us, she appears to be me right inside the eye and retains
out her arm in direction of hand me the kite string. My son is leaping up and down,
making an attempt towards seize it. As I glimpse up at the kite by itself, I attention it is not an inanimate
item however a are living vulture that the aged lady is traveling upon a leash. I back again absent
versus her, shaking my mind No . . . No, I dress in’t need some thing towards do with a
vulture. Yet my youthful son jumps up and down boasting “Just take it Mother,
Remember to acquire it.” I retain shaking my brain and backing absent, pulling him
absent till I capture the eye of the outdated lady once again and she nods at me as if in the direction of
say, “Honey, yourself’d much better consider this vulture. It’s yours. It belongs in the direction of on your own.”
Greatest of us locate and have an understanding of the vulture as the fowl who feeds upon the lifeless. Nevertheless what I didn’t check out at the season was the great importance of the vulture as a brand of underworld knowledge. It was sacred in the direction of the Egyptians as a parent of the threshold concerning lifestyle and dying. Within just a Jungian truly feel, the graphic arrived against the collective subconscious, a major archetypal impression, universally understood as an affiliation with the useless. Once again, the logo dictionaries emphasised interpretations synchronistic in the direction of my specific working experience. “For the reason that it eats carrion and transforms it into essential electrical energy, the vulture . . . is aware the solution of the transformation of useless product into gold.” (Herder, 211) And “Ambivalent as maternal solicitude, basic safety and shelter, and as loss of life-working hurt and voracity. All vultures have been principle towards be woman and symbolized the female notion with the hawk as person (italics mine) . . . As a scavenger the vulture represented purification, a personnel of optimistic. Inside of Egypt it represented the Mom Goddess, maternity and delight in, Isis consuming imagined the style of a vulture” (Cooper).
I experienced experienced 2 chook desires, 1 with the dad’s wound which transforms towards a potent internal gentleman determine and a single with a crone, a sensible internal woman linked with the Egyptian Mom Goddess, Isis. Consciously, inside of my quotidian existence, I experienced no purpose for consuming dreamt Those people symbols. I was common with neither at the season of the wishes. Such ended up “substantial wishes,” with collective symbols which arrived at a season of unexpected emergency.
With the assist of my analyst, I took the vulture desire within 2 techniques. I was maybe elevated out of my black gap still as a result of no implies experienced I location my despair at the rear of me. It was period in direction of mine this underworld and occur in the direction of grips with its contents. As the realm of the lifeless, it far too constituted the environment of my dad. I understood I ought to transfer again and visual appeal at how I experienced involved the detrimental aspect of my dad.
My youthful son’s response within the desire, his enjoyment and motivation in direction of just take upon the vulture, in direction of permit it fly as his personalized pet dog, confirmed inside Jung’s text, my youthful animus or my freshly reborn resourceful guy aspect, willing and qualified of managing this content. I ought to comply with the vulture. And the previous woman, whom I involved toward my Polish grandmother, a pious and spiritually intelligent immigrant with an abiding religion inside of the supernatural-she was the archetypal Smart Previous Lady. What experienced develop into of the hag, the darkish facet of the Outstanding Mom? Foolishly, I thing to consider she was absent for constructive. I didn’t recognize then that inside of occasions of fresh psychological setbacks which carried repressed anger or be concerned, she would reappear yet again, occasionally in just the variety of a bag woman. Still for by now, I was psyched in the direction of contain an more mature female as an internal coach, a crone.
I way too experienced her inside Winona, who was considerably towards crone-seeking still more mature and wiser than I within the environment of wishes. However this aged girl inside of the aspiration was furthermore a long term portion of me, the component that was wiser than my moi, who I notion I was, what I idea I demanded, that slender quantity in the direction of which we lower ourselves in opposition to our exceptional egoic impact. I acquired not towards have confidence in the moi’s level inside the desire. The knowledgeable self did not have to have the vulture; the subconscious animus, my son, was raring in the direction of acquire it upon! With Winona’s assistance, I may view in opposition to the sensible female’s angle that she realized greater than my moi did. The desire clicked inside the particular person assistance of my contemporary “direction.” Aspiration effort looked a most straightforward buddy in the direction of poetry, my most well-liked market. I’ve been immersed inside the imagery of possibly at any time simply because.

The Eagle & The Vulture; 2 Archetypal Fowl Wants

Deborah DeNicola
Though a personal is much too deeply embedded inside of the collective, outer
real truth of day by day lifetime, the discovery inside his or her private wants of
common, archetypal photographs … can be a liberating encounter.
(Jungian Desire Interpretation Corridor, 114)
Within the worldwide of archetypal symbolism birds inside of our needs from time to time suggest a non secular job. Immediately after all, they fly higher than us, nearer toward the heavens than we typically obtain ourselves. Their flexibility appears to be exhilarating. Inside of the overall body of a jet wherever we may perhaps uncover ourselves traveling a lot quicker and high than birds, we however absence open up air, the wind inside of our hair thus-in direction of-communicate, and we’re restricted within primarily minor seats concerning other folks, who in its place than lifting their hands entrained within just synch with ours, are coughing, consuming, sleeping, operating, or seeking even more nervous than carefree. That’s why after we abide by our high-quality feathered buddies inside wants, we think about the context of study course, yet always believe that of the heights and liberation of the spirit.
Of a Pretty massive species, unless of course we are ornithologist, we predominantly categorize the birds we look at in just desires basically. 2 significant desires I experienced at a season of religious initiation within my lifetime presented messages in excess of 2 divergent paths because of in direction of the dissimilarities within just the winged creatures and the circumstances within which they seemed. But equally wishes seemed in direction of assure rewarding excursions.
*
I experienced been steeped in just sorrow once a aspiration raised me out of my melancholy practically mechanically. At the season of the desire I experienced not been a pupil of desire function, nonetheless even within just my relative ignorance, I could possibly seem that the aspiration was a blessing. As record material, enable me country back again that I experienced dropped my dad inside of adolescence. Whenever I was 13 he endured a anxious breakdown and after I was 15 he died of a self-administered overdose of prescription drugs. He was a health practitioner, therefore I once in a while questioned if he experienced deliberately finished his everyday living. One more applicable real truth relating towards this period of time inside my younger lifetime was that my mom informed my siblings and I that he died of a middle assault. Inside of her personal surprise and ache, she soldiered upon, in no way visibly mourning, therefore that we did not categorical our grief both.
I grew up with a sure suspicion relating to my dad’s loss of life yet I held it in the direction of myself and repressed what feelings I experienced regarding these 2 unachievable many years. I was specifically getting a girl and my arrival into womanhood was impacted via what I experienced noticed, a form of tranquil and from time to time not-therefore-tranquil desperation in just my dad. I started off toward opt for boyfriends and later on, guys buddies, who would abandon me and I usually reacted with some hysterical conclusion-of-the-world wide opinions towards the termination of this kind of interactions.
As a result of the season that my chicken needs happened, I intellectually recognized that my reactions in the direction of the reduction of a lover ended up irrational and at instances, out of percentage towards the seriousness or deficiency thereof, of the connection. I “understood” that my unarticulated grief for my dad surfaced and even more exacerbated my come to feel of reduction.
Understanding Sadly, didn’t guidance the inner thoughts toward subside. Therefore Though inside my mid nineteen thirties, I was ache versus the betrayal of a gentleman I experienced been unbelievably content with, I didn’t seek out out regular treatment, eating absent in the course of 5 decades of that a several a long time back again just after a divorce. Just one working day a close friend prompt I look at her astrologer who lived upon an island within Casco Bay, exterior of Portland, Maine exactly where I was dwelling. I relished the concept of crossing the drinking water, an archetypal topic within just alone, in the direction of discover some options as in direction of why my grief was inconsolable.
I sat upon the ferry at 10 inside of the early morning, using tobacco a cigarette. Inside individuals times I’d missing my urge for food for foods and I lived upon cigarettes and spring h2o. The very clear Oct landscape problems me with its stunning auburn leaves and cerulean sky and the vibrant contrasting hues stabbed at my eyes together with an insult, the comprehensive landscape by some means provocative of my dropped joy. A working day for fans, I strategy.
Whichever the temperature, throughout that unachievable season, I looked in the direction of change each and every working day into a further explanation in the direction of mourn. The desirable vista of churning darkish blue h2o wrapped more than the speckled islands of the bay just designed me really feel my loneliness further closely. Inside my self-contained universe, just about every tune upon the radio appeared made in the direction of deliver again the impression of my companion, our passionate ritual of dancing inside his residing house. I wallowed within recollections. Pics performed in the course of my head which include some dopey chorus of the state tunes he’d unveiled me toward and but, Extremely the wailing nation diva myself, I stored bringing them back again #LINK1# inside obtain in the direction of question myself why it harm consequently a lot. Was it accurately the inventory cliché, betrayal, jealousy, anger and embarrassment I felt, or was it really wasting the essence of this impressive person in opposition to my daily life that brought about me this irrepressible grief? I was persuaded of the latter. Some variables oneself simply just comprehend.
As I debarked in opposition to the boat and became upon foot up one particular of the unpaved streets of the island, my anger was long gone nevertheless the grief puddled up within just my entire body thus that just the regular rhythm of my sighs, together with the whitecaps, one particular right after an additional washing in opposition to the boat, may perhaps persuade me I was even now residing. As clueless as the gaping gulls who waddled towards me inside appear of a hand-out, I experienced crossed the h2o towards discover an solution. As soon as upon the island, I adopted the twists inside of the filth street in accordance toward a scribbled map, my gaze drawn in opposition to the highway symptoms in direction of the wild flower gardens, the slatted fences and yards littered with tricycles and yard chairs even this late within the time. The weeds which experienced began in direction of overtake the gardens looked towards scent of decay.
I entered Mary Alice’s screened-within porch and rang the bell. Although I doubted I would track down any solace inside of the examining, I was curious as toward what she might say with out understanding me or my problem at all. But inside my 2 hour convention this stunning and proficient astrologer, a good girl and mistress of metaphor, was ready in the direction of offer you me causes regarding the delicate place of my psyche that generated even further really feel than the reasoning I’d labored during within my cure.
Her very first picture of me was that my palms had been trapped within just a Chinese puzzle. The further I tried using in the direction of wiggle them out, the added I found out them locked up. Without the need of becoming much too specialized, I’ll simply just say that she confirmed me how 2 Quite arduous planetary transits have been at exertion influencing my moon or feelings, and Venus, my partnership everyday living. She advisable me in direction of effortlessly surrender, in direction of sit in just my rocking chair by way of the fireplace, ingesting tea with my most loved blanket near my shoulders, enjoying my saddest nation arias letting myself toward descend into the divine abyss of decline— (the primary phrase below is divine) “Until eventually by yourself are elevated out,” she reported. “And on your own will be elevated out.” She peered at me really; “And each time on your own are, on your own will turn into anyone thoroughly fresh new.”
Upon the collective position, Pluto, the entire world of ruination and riches, experienced only entered the indicator of Scorpio exactly where it would continue being for the up coming 12 decades. She described that within addition in the direction of my particular person plight, the universe was generating an active move alone and that as we arrived nearer towards the millennium, plenty of Those ended up tapping into an #LINK1# awakening. Humanity alone was gearing up for a main evolutionary jump, one particular which would get countless a long time in the direction of turn out to be crystal clear. Oh yeah, the harmonious Age of Aquarius, I principle, remembering the nineteen sixties musical Hair. Thus how arrive I’m depressing? She explained my soul experienced desired this unique have an effect on and would be opening toward a fresh new explanation however to start with, because of toward Pluto’s renovation course of action, it necessary towards be stripped of psychological dependencies, thus that I would understand the correct character of delight in, which was unconditional. She discussed that I experienced 3 planets in just the 8th Place, the organic and natural household for Pluto. Later on, looking through above Pluto I arrived throughout this quotation via the eminent Jungian-Astrologer Liz Greene: “If there are a great number of planets within just the 8th, the the affected person should find out in the direction of overall look darkness inside of the experience (85).
I didn’t extremely recognize a lot astrology then, nonetheless I did realize that I experienced a wealthy 8th property and that mythically, the descent is once in a while the path into transformation and I notion of the poet Dante within his darkish woods, the legendary tale of Persephone’s abduction, Odysseus’ vacation toward Hades and the countless literary stats and writers who went in direction of the underworld right before returning with contemporary working experience in the direction of crank out towards the higher environment.
I was far too informed of the countless poets who in no way rose against their descent: Plath, Sexton, Berryman, Crane, and hence numerous of the French writers I’d examined inside higher education, as perfectly as my particular dad. Mary Alice’s astrological cause for my emergency clicked intuitively in just a direction I couldn’t reveal. As psycho-babbly as this kind of astrological phrases (“Pluto sq., Saturn transit”) sounded in the direction of me at the season, I sensed there was a little something added profound at exertion. My really feel of decline was practically disproportional in the direction of the fact of the function. Involving other aspects I found out concerning my chart that working day was the real truth that I experienced been born in the direction of get rid of my dad and with just about every refreshing decline, the authentic view of decline was brought about.
My troubled mom experienced very easily long gone upon Although my dad died. With her 4 young children within tow, she never ever authorized herself or us in direction of together grieve. It was a option technology back again inside 1963. President Kennedy loss of life preceded by means of dad’s via a few months and inside of a direction we were being by now grieving. My mom did what she idea was the straight matter. Position a person foot in just entrance of the other and shift ahead. Still I idea I experienced labored in the course of the themes of the shed dad within just my treatment method for the duration of the yrs of my divorce. Toward my marvel I learned out that Saturn, the Patriarchal Dad, was the ruler of my special astrological chart and both of those my Pluto and my Saturn, as perfectly as Mars, the entire world of war and will, had been found within just the 8th Space, the indigenous residence of Scorpio, the optimum arduous and psychological signal.
I remembered definitely the night time my dad died. A detective experienced occur in the direction of the doorway with his hat and coat. My mom stood at the railing upon the stairs and advised us our dad experienced experienced an incident and died of a middle assault. I remembered distinctly 3 terms surfacing within my brain: “he’s killed himself.” Even at 15, my private subconscious intuited the truth of the matter I didn’t literally uncover until eventually I was 20-9.
Upon the holiday back again in direction of the mainland, I felt for the 1st period for the reason that the separation as if my psychological and psychological region may presently deliver some feel. By some means believing inside of a religious rescue and restoration was the optimum heartening concept I experienced read within several weeks and I experienced acquired the impression of the “Pluto sq.” was towards obvious absent what was not “serving” my “superior reason.” I was, Incredibly only, inside hell. Incarcerated as a result of the classical God Hades, deep in just the realm of melancholy and decline.
A further status for the ruler of subterranean areas was “Plutus” which signifies “riches.” Treasures and resurrections had been in addition related with Pluto.

At some truth she measures upon a twig and will become a splinter in just her foot. I attempt in the direction of consider the splinter out, and as I do, it flies against my arms, boomeranging out and then again into her brow, hitting her instantly amongst her eyes. At present I am actually fearful more than her for the reason that the splinter is made up of grow to be a wedge as significant as a meat cleaver. I transfer towards pull it out once again nevertheless as soon as I launch it in opposition to her brain, her mind splits open up inside contemporary extremely surreal planes and out flies a significant fowl. The 2 exceptionally cubically awesome halves of her brain fold back again into location as the eagle flaps its massive wings and flies earlier mentioned and over us. We maintain each individual other squealing and laughing within just awe of the chook’s electric power, performing together with giddy younger ladies and I appear a deep enjoy this woman.
This aspiration was a enormous launch. I wasn’t guaranteed of all the repercussions nevertheless I understood the lady I didn’t have to have any component of was me at 13 or 14, that it spoke of an adolescent wound, maximum most likely my dad’s loss of life, and that out of this lady’s ache experienced arrive a large chook. It appeared in direction of me the wound of abandoning boyfriend and the wound of the dad had been overlaid and experienced thrown me again in direction of the lady who experienced under no circumstances remedied, who lived with this dilemma already straight concerning the eyes.

It was sacred in the direction of the Egyptians as a parent of the threshold concerning lifestyle and dying. Within just a Jungian truly feel, the graphic arrived against the collective subconscious, a major archetypal impression, universally understood as an affiliation with the useless. Once again, the logo dictionaries emphasised interpretations synchronistic in the direction of my specific working experience. “For the reason that it eats carrion and transforms it into essential electrical energy, the vulture . . . is aware the solution of the transformation of useless product into gold.” (Herder, 211) And “Ambivalent as maternal solicitude, basic safety and shelter, and as loss of life-working hurt and voracity. All vultures have been principle towards be woman and symbolized the female notion with the hawk as person (italics mine) . . . As a scavenger the vulture represented purification, a personnel of optimistic. Inside of Egypt it represented the Mom Goddess, maternity and delight in, Isis consuming imagined the style of a vulture” (Cooper).
I experienced experienced 2 chook desires, 1 with the dad’s wound which transforms towards a potent internal gentleman determine and a single with a crone, a sensible internal woman linked with the Egyptian Mom Goddess, Isis. Consciously, inside of my quotidian existence, I experienced no purpose for consuming dreamt Those people symbols. I was common with neither at the season of the wishes. Such ended up “substantial wishes,” with collective symbols which arrived at a season of unexpected emergency.
With the assist of my analyst, I took the vulture desire within 2 techniques. I was maybe elevated out of my black gap still as a result of no implies experienced I location my despair at the rear of me. It was period in direction of mine this underworld and occur in the direction of grips with its contents. As the realm of the lifeless, it far too constituted the environment of my dad. I understood I ought to transfer again and visual appeal at how I experienced involved the detrimental aspect of my dad.
My youthful son’s response within the desire, his enjoyment and motivation in direction of just take upon the vulture, in direction of permit it fly as his personalized pet dog, confirmed inside Jung’s text, my youthful animus or my freshly reborn resourceful guy aspect, willing and qualified of managing this content. I ought to comply with the vulture. And the previous woman, whom I involved toward my Polish grandmother, a pious and spiritually intelligent immigrant with an abiding religion inside of the supernatural-she was the archetypal Smart Previous Lady. What experienced develop into of the hag, the darkish facet of the Outstanding Mom? Foolishly, I thing to consider she was absent for constructive. I didn’t recognize then that inside of occasions of fresh psychological setbacks which carried repressed anger or be concerned, she would reappear yet again, occasionally in just the variety of a bag woman. Still for by now, I was psyched in the direction of contain an more mature female as an internal coach, a crone.
I way too experienced her inside Winona, who was considerably towards crone-seeking still more mature and wiser than I within the environment of wishes. However this aged girl inside of the aspiration was furthermore a long term portion of me, the component that was wiser than my moi, who I notion I was, what I idea I demanded, that slender quantity in the direction of which we lower ourselves in opposition to our exceptional egoic impact. I acquired not towards have confidence in the moi’s level inside the desire. The knowledgeable self did not have to have the vulture; the subconscious animus, my son, was raring in the direction seemly photo of acquire it upon! With Winona’s assistance, I may view in opposition to the sensible female’s angle that she realized greater than my moi did. The desire clicked inside the particular person assistance of my contemporary “direction.” Aspiration effort looked a most straightforward buddy in the direction of poetry, my most well-liked market. I’ve been immersed inside the imagery of possibly at any time simply because.

豪雨災害に見舞われた山口県北部、島根県津和野は元気です! 風評被害をぶっ飛ばせ!キャンペーンを実施~「SLやまぐち号」Nゲージを抽選でプレゼント!~

2013-08-19

「まじめに、おいしいものをお届けする」をモットーとして、山口県の食材を活用した商品を企画製造卸している株式会社楽喜(本社:山口県美祢市美東町真名454-1、代表取締役社長:吉田 龍司)は、このたびの山口、島根の豪雨による風評被害に対するための観光キャンペーンを開始しました。
URL: http://ikiiki-ys.com/docs/slget.html

【キャンペーンの背景】
7月28日の山口県萩地方、ならびに島根県の津和野町において経験したことのない豪雨により、観光客のキャンセルが相次ぎ、経験したことのないさびしい夏休みとなっています。
今回、大きな被害があったのは萩市の山間部と須佐地方ですが、萩観光の中心地、旧萩市街については全く被害がありませんでした。更に津和野町も381mmという未曽有の豪雨でしたが、観光施設は今も平常通りに営業ができている状況です。
被災地である山口市北部徳佐地区の観光リンゴ園にも被害はありましたが、被害は観光リンゴ園全生産量のうちの1割程度で、大半のリンゴ園は開園できる状況にあります。
しかしながら、大きな被害の映像が流れるうちに萩、津和野、観光リンゴ園の徳佐地区、更には山口県全体が壊滅状況であるかのような印象を持たれ、夏休みとなった今も閑散とした様子で津和野、山口県全体の観光地の観光施設は頭を抱えている状況です。
そこで当社ではこのような状況を打破すべく、2つのキャンペーンを実施いたします。
【キャンペーン内容】

今回の豪雨での象徴的な被害として、JR山口線「SLやまぐち号」の運行再開の目途が立たないということがございます。
