遭遇

レジデンス1年2ヶ月と13日目

ヨーロッパはきょうからサマータイムです。時計が1時間進みます。早いもので、ついこないだ時計を遅らせたばかりな気がする。
ところでとうとう遭遇しました、冬だけアムスに現れるというTバックスケートおじさん。見たい見たいと思いながらあえずじまいかと思われたけど、今日動物園の横で私の横をスケーティングしていってくれました。実際見たかんじでは、背が高くてさっそうと滑ってて、衣装もたしかにTだったけど、スポーツ界ではアリなのね?と思わせる自然さのTで、とくに変人な感じはしなかったわ。むしろかっこよかった。
おじさんとサマータイムとは何の関係もないけど、何か冬ギリギリセーフでみたって感じがうれしかった。

An encounter

It is the beginning of the summer time today in Europe. Time flies; I feel I have just set the clock back to the winter time the other day.

By the way, I finally met him! – Mr. T-back Roller Skater, who, I heard, are only around in Amsterdam in the winter. I’ve been wishing to see him the whole winter, and have nearly given up the idea of coming across with him; but finally my dream came true. I saw him roller skating along the street by the zoo.

He was tall and a good skater. Although he was wearing T-back, he gave me an impression that he is not an eccentric. Perhaps, wearing T-back is kind of usual in a professional skating context?
There is no connection between him and the summer time... but I thought it was kind of special that I did come across with him just before the ‘end’ of winter. I was happy.
