Last night’s gourmet night, we had about 12 men and women who are victims and perpetrators. About four of them were women… Recommendations for the menu included Thai coconut curry, hamachi sashimi, sama sushi, and so on.
There were men and women who attended for the first time…but everyone enjoyed the dialogue and the chatter about domestic violence and affairs, which would be considered unheard of in the world, was very common. And more importantly, there was no one to interrupt such conversations as insane……and above all, each conversation was spoken with seriousness and humour…….is the rewriting of the stories happening here?
In the midst of the excitement of the conversation, I returned home around two o’clock, having finished cleaning up. The next day I heard that everyone had gone home at dawn by the first train…….but still, everyone talks a lot. I wondered how much they talked.
