Vegetable Party (March 2012)

One of the last Kitchen Stories events. Around November we will move to Europe, travel around for a year or so and then live in Belgium for some time. But first, time for another event! Last autumn I worked a few times on the fields of a Kyoto farmer and we became friends. He would have brought fresh delicious Kyoto vegetables ... but winter harvest is over, so I will have to buy vegetables in the supermarket. He will join the party, so if you are interested in talking about farming (in Japanese) be sure to come.
A professional cook will prepare vegan food and I'm hoping to find a sponsor who can bring one or two bottles of sake for sake tasting.
date: Saturday 24 March 2012
time: 7-9:30 pm
fee: 1500 yen
includes: vegan snacks, tea as much as you want, (maybe sake tasting).
All languages OK, though mainly English and Japanese will be spoken.

Reservation is necessary, places are limited.

Tomas Venclova
Lithuania’s Tomas Venclova is one of Europe’s greatest living poets. His work speaks with a moral depth exceptional in contemporary poetry. Venclova’s poetry addressed the desolate landscape of the aftermath of totalitarianism, as well as the ethical contants that allow for hope and perseverance. The Junction brings together entirely new translations of his most recent work as well as a selection of poems from his 1997 volume Winter Dialogue. “Every major poet has an idiosyncratic inner landscape against which his voice sounds in his mind…his landscape is that of the Baltic in winter…" Joseph Brodsky (quoted from "The Junction")

Arima Takashi

He is affiliated with The Japan Writers' Association and The Japan P.E.N. Club. The board of directors, Kansai Poets' Association. He has attended poetry festivals in Europe, Asia, and Central and South America, including the 27th International Poetry Festival in Rotterdam, and participated in performances, symphosia at the festivals. In 1993, he received the International Eminent Poet Diploma from the International Poet Agency. In 2001, he won the Atlantida Prize in Spain.

 Zang Di
   Zang Di is one of the most prominent and dynamic poets in China today, author of seven poetry collections and editor of several important anthologies and poetry series. Previously he edited Selected Poems of Rilke (in Chinese translation), co-edited Chinese Poetry Review and New Poetry Review. He is also co-founder and chief-editor of Poetry East West. He has won some major poetry awards in China and is considered to be one of the best ten poets and best ten critics in China. He obtained his PhD in Chinese Literature from Peking University in 1997 and has been teaching there since then. At the present, he is teaching at Kanazawa University as a visiting professor.

Ming Di

(aka Mindy) is an emerging Chinese poet who has lived in America for twenty years but gained recognition in China in recent years. She was educated in Boston and taught Chinese at Boston University before moving to California. She has six poetry collections and three books of translations credited to her name. She has been invited to several international poetry festivals including Struga Poetry Evenings in Macedonia. Currently she lives in two counties editing a new Chinese-English bilingual magazine, Poetry East West.

February 2011

Last week I invited some poets. We had dinner and did some writing games.
Mariko Sumikura and Trane Devore already wrote a nice post about it, so I will repost it here and put a link to their blog.

Mariko's post:
雰囲気の良いカルチャーサークル:オープンハウス「Kitchen Stories」♪

京都の町家で、居心地の良い空間がそこにあります。

主宰者はベルギー人のスティンさん。
自然と集まる人々は、初めてでも常連さんでも
隔てなく旧来の友達のように話せますよ。

この間にはパーティに招かれ、ワイン・チーズ・パン・ハムを
持って駆け付けました。抜歯後だったので食べられませでしたが、
おいしそうな稲荷ずし、筑前煮、シュークリーム、ピザ、野菜スティック
スティンさんの初めての「胡瓜の蛇腹切り」など、盛りだくさん。

その日は、英語で詩を書くひとばかり7名だったのですが、
即興で詩を書いたり、盛り上がりました。
また遊びに行きたいと思っています♪

Trane's post:
The other week I had the pleasure of meeting several poets in Kyoto for a shinnenkai party at which, in addition to plenty of eating and drinking, we wrote seven collaborative renshi (連詩) poems and a host of haiku (俳句) as well.  There are several ways to write renshi, which are often referred to as “linked poems,” but in this particular case the pages were folded in such a way that each person could only see the line that had most recently been added and not the rest of the poem.  In other words, conscious links were able to be made from line to line, but the poem as a whole was unable to be seen until after the entire poem had been completed.  Finally, the poems were given titles.
What’s so special about renshi is the way in which the poem as a whole unfolds its own inner poetic logic.  Since the poem is written without an express set of intentions informing the poem, it would seem as if the poem as a whole should seem a bit random in character — like a version Frankenstein’s monster that has been so hastily cobbled together that feet have been attached where hands should be, while the eyes are looking out of the back of the head.  However, somehow the inner poetic logic of each line guides the next just enough that the poem as a whole feels perfectly complete, one part running naturally into the next as if some secret steersman were guiding the whole affair safely down the river.
The party was held at the beautiful machiya house of Stijn Caron, a writer from Belgium, and his lovely wife.  The writers involved in the renshi game included Keiji Minato (湊圭史), Atsusuke Tanaka (田中宏輔), Yoko Danno (團野葉子), Sumikura Mariko (すみくら まりこ), Taniuchi Hirose (谷内洋), Kitchen Stories, and myself.  Several people in this group are associated with the Japan International Poetry Society (JIPS), and in addition Yoko Danno is one of the editors of Ikuta Press, while Sumikura Mariko and Kitchen Stories are both working on an upcoming Japanese-English review of poetry that will be called AMA-HASHI (天橋).
Here are the seven poems that we wrote, in no particular order.  (At times I have made some very minor emendations.)
Melting
Snow has hidden everything.
Everything above the land, everything under the land
alive and breathing like stars in the sky.
“Let’s eat stars!” (Nanao Sakaki)
Because we are going to be seen, heard, touched.
It matters!
Ice-cream is already melting.
Eternity, an Hourglass
On the rack, all the magazines
stand neatly and
appear soon
like an angel,
looking for a word to explain “eternity.”
The sun over an empty desert, dripping heat —
let’s have a glass of wine for a change.

Under the Vague Light (Let’s Spin Happiness)
Life is long, art is short, or vice versa?
Or is art a long dress that spins and spins in happiness?
Someone says the life is like the vegetable soup, but I say the vegetable soup is like the life.
And all the letters in my mind, hard boiled,
read many times, prove my theory.
Under vague light of the dawn
tomorrow meets yesterday.

Sweet Things Fill Our Lives
What do you want except for nice foods and nice drinks?
A red bicycle and women’s shoes, maybe,
all brightly shining.
Light and shadow,
you and I,
a pair of immigrating birds
drop over the horizon, into a dream of night.

Dream of Hourglass
At the thinnest point of the hourglass
this morning I found four crocuses blooming under snow
which is the green pulse of spring, I thought.
What have you seen, the most beautiful scenery?
Why do you always ask me questions?
My answer is always the same, you know.
All ends beautifully.

Colors for Dinner
The flavor of imaginary jade
becomes the sound, it stays in the mind.
What was on the table separates —
two sets of dishes for us,
happiness on the table,
dice on a dice,
white on white.

Sand Life
A line of trees makes shade.
I’m hiding myself in the shade,
until every sand in the hourglass falls
and the mist disperses.
Sunlight, finally,
we are family — brothers, lovers, parents and children, enemies —
because the sand will never touch.

I would just like to add the "freestyle" haiku we wrote. Keiji-san copied these eight haiku on a separate paper and each of us had to mark the two poems we liked best. I'm not going to reveal the result, please judge for yourself!








1月2011


I am back from Belgium.

<--This is how my father's garden looked like.

 And my mother's -->











No wonder I got a cold.

I brought 2 big bottles of Belgian beer, 1 Greek wine called Retsina which I couldn't find in Japan, and a bottle of Belgian Whiskey, and of course there's also tea and coffee, so we have some tasting to do.
The third Belgian Evening will be on Saturday 22th of January from 5pm till 7:30. Fee is 1500 yen.
I will prepare some small snacks like peanuts, cucumber, ... but nothing big, so if you think you will be hungry feel free to bring something.

Other plans:
Twice a month on Thursday movie night: I will focus on the Harry Potter series because last year to practice my Swedish I listened to all the audio books
and because I haven't seen the movies yet, I'm curious how they portrayed the books. 
Twice a month on Thursday: reading night
Wednesdays: lunch.
Private lessons: always ok.
(check calendar for the dates)
