雨尸
Amado (Opening the Shutters)


強い風雨の夜が明けて晴天が戻った朝、雨戸同士の隙間から陽光が暗い縁側に真っ直ぐに差し込んでいる。その眩しさにこれから始まる1日への期待が膨らむ。雨戸は湿って重く独特の香リがしている。雨戸の縁、腰よリ下を掴んでおもいきり横に引いて戸袋に押し込むと大量の朝日が一斉になだれ込んでくる。

雨戸1枚で半間分の面積、開けた瞬間に全身で朝日を浴びる格好になります。かつて自分も田舎の親戚の家でそんな体験をしたことがあリます。夏休みだったこともあって1日の始まりに強い期待と高揚を感じたことを覚えています。
このイラストはそんな期待感とか高揚惑とは無縁な雨戸のむこう側を描いてみました。1曰のんびりと過ごしてしまいそうです。


A sunny morning after a night of strong winds and rain; beams of sunlight shining in onto the dark verandah through the gaps between the shutters. This dazzling brightness serves to heighten the expectations for the day. The shutters possess a unique, damp, heavy smell. Verandah shutters have to be grasped below waist height and then pulled sideways very hard before being pushed into the shutter case, flooding the house with morning sunshine.

Each shutter is 90 centimeters wide and the moment it is opened, the whole body is struck by the sunlight. I experienced this once when I was staying with relatives in the country. Perhaps because it was the summer holidays, but I remember the strong feelings of anticipation and excitement I experienced at the thought of the new day.
I drew this picture from the opposite side of the shutters, where anticipation and excitement are irrelevant. It looks as though this girl is going to spend the whole day relaxing.
