Weather forecast said it will be cloudy after the rain. But it was not dark this morning so I went to the mountain. I ran alongside the river by car. There was bank protection works everywhere. There was asphalt road in the mountain in Japan. It is a road empty of traffic. Many tax was used, I think. Plants and animals became sacrificed for human always. I feel sad that I saw concrete on the river bank. There were snow here and there in the mountain. And I felt cold because I wore scanty clothing. In the mountain today, the birds were almost not singing. Winter birds decreased in recent years. We have been destroying a lot of nature in this world. I think, if there are no birds, there are no people.
When I came back to my house my husband said “ I already filed the income-tax.” He said “ Money will come back.” I was glad to hear that.
