A new month has begun. August is hachigatsu (８月), and its old name is hazuki (葉月) which literally means leaf month.
It was fine and hot.
I feel like starting something on each first day of the month. Last week when I went to Kyoto, I bought a talisman at Bishamondo(毘沙門堂). It should be pasted on the wall of entrance to drive away bugs and invite the fortune. So I have waited until today and put it on the wall of the entrance this morning.
According to the color beauty studies, August is the starting month for me this year. So I want to start something new for my future.
