I have a problem ,I can’t stick on reading one book or magazine I will get bored easily so I need a reading rotation that keep me focus and interested in what I’m reading ,which is the problem ? I did start at least seven books and 3 magazine ,to don’t talk about all the articles I read on Internet ,I need more time to read everything but I don’t have it I do have to work ,eat ,use the toilet,normally 3 times a day  so basically I keep to add on  stuff to read with the feeling now I will never finish it or if I will I will be over one hundred year old ,It doesn’t sounds a good idea ,I promise I will stick with what I have and by the end of 2019 I will finish to read all.

In past articles I showed you guys which books and magazines I had on my hands ,now in my endless collection I added something new 

KyoMai Inoue-Ryu Meeting in Edinburgh

A unique event featuring the 17th-century Kyoumai Inoue Ryu dance form Kyoto. This will be the first time that a Kyo Mai Inoue Ryu Master and Living National Treasure will perform outside Japan. The performance will feature a unique collection of dances developed in old capital of Kyoto during the Edo period. Kyo Mai is based on the elegant movements found in Noh, but also incorporates dance elements found within Kabuki. Kyo Mai developed in the 17th century Tokugawa cultural period and due to this is heavily influenced by the elegance and sophistication of the manners often associated with the Imperial Court in Kyoto. Due to this, the Kyo Mai is always related to the beauty of the Japanese Imperial Court. The event will begin with a dance performance from Inoue Yasuko. Following her dance, a short documentary will be shown to elaborate on the ancient dance and provide a brief history of this performing art. Finally, the event will close with a dance performance from ‘National Living Treasure’, Inoue Yachiyo V.
