Short short with English summary
I have spent this September and October in Stockholm.
The days were getting shorter every day. The daytime of Stockholm in the beginning of September were obviously much longer than Tokyo$B!G(Bs. When I landed at Arlanda Airport of Stockholm at 18:30, it was under the strong clear daylight.
The summer nights in Scandinavia do not get dark, famous as midsummer nights. Around Christmas, it is dark, daytime is very short. At the spring and autumn equinox daytime and night time are equally long all over the world. Tokyo and Stockholm have same length of day and night. Naturally the length of daytime is getting shorter or longer little by little. Since Scandinavia has long summer days and also long winter nights, the days are quickly getting shorter and shorter in autumn. It is difficult to enjoy calm evenings. I feel rather uneasy sensing the approaching winter at the next door.
In Japan, we have evenly quartered four seasons with each characteristic beauties. Sometime too hot summer and sometime natural catastrophes, but still. In Scandinavia, you can enjoy cool fresh beautiful summer lives in the vast nature. There are countries where through the year the warm and bright sunshine are promised. The nights are black dark but the shining Southern Cross. You read books under the palm trees. No four seasons but dry and rainy seasons.
In our world there are lifestyles with many and rich variations. And today, allover the worlds we meet people just keeping mobile phones in their hand playing the games.
Is the IT technique the wonder medicine to lead us to a better world or drug to mislead us or poison to terminate us?
