もう四十年以上前になる。

新宿の伊勢丹で父が親にお金を借りて、

買った大事な道具。

これで所帯道具を作ったり、

のち私のベッドフレーム、本棚、机、

椅子、ぶらんこなども作られる。

お店の内装もこの道具にお世話になる。

私も何度か使っていて、

最近久しぶりに棚の調整で使ったところ、

なんだか、がんばっているモーターの匂いが。

大事に使っていたからこそ、

今でも貴重。

物を大事に使いましょう。

over forty years ago,

this set of power tools were purchased by my father

at shinjuku’s isetan.

at the time, it was not an inexpensive purchase and

he had his parents help to acquire them.

he made furniture for the then newly weds’ home.

it was also the beginning of what seemed to me a part of

some magical trinity.

as a young child,

there was nothing that my father could not make.

almost everything in my room was made by him.

the shelf, the desk, a chair, the bed frame,

and my red swing.

the interior of the shop too

was in large part constructed with these tools.

my father gave me my own power drill several years back.

its reliable and even has the now norm option of going cordless.

though i care for it,

its not quite like this old friend.

i recently had the opportunity of checking in with this drill.

i met it with the same gusto that it had responded with in the past

but i smelled a faint indication of hard focused work over the years from its motor.

i am happy to report that its still going-

just at a different speed.

Where Am I?
