I want to live for myself
I read a novel [Ora orade hitoride igumo] writtin by Satciko Wakatake who got Akutagawa award last year. She is 63 years old and the novel is her ideal about new life style. The book says, The heroine was born and grown up Iwate prefecture when she was 24 years old, She didn't accept arranged marriaged set by her parents, and she moved in Tokyo. After a while, She got married and she raised two chirdren. And them, Her chirdren became indpendent. and her husband passed away. She lives alone now. She wants to live her own life from now. That is story of the book. After I read this book, I see, I understand how she lives, I agree with her living. I want to live for myself.
