'Kyoto Winter 2018' - At Home with Venetia in Kyoto (NHK World program), Time-sensitive - VOD available only until 02-APR-18 (JST)


Quoting from the introduction to the program on the NHK World VOD (Video On Demand) site:


British-born Venetia lives in Ohara, Kyoto.

She gathers twigs for her wood-burning stove, wards off the winter chills with herbal tea, and plants winter-hardy Christmas Roses.

In Kyoto, she sees a roof-tile maker creating shoki rooftop ornaments. In Nara, she joins an old friend to visit a forest near the city where she feels the profundity of the ancient capital's culture coexisting with nature.

The next day she goes to Todaiji Temple and visits Kaimon Yoshimizu, a young Buddhist sculptor.

'Wiser Time' by The Black Crowes (Song, Video)




Lyrics:

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, I know it ain't every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, I know it ain't every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds until sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, I know it ain't every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, I know it ain't every day
Glory beyond our reach

On a good day, I know it ain't every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, I know it ain't every day
Glory beyond our reach

'Something to Say' by Toad The Wet Sprocket (Song)




Lyrics:

He's got a thing about losing control
Carries it a mile just to see how far he'll go
And he brushes up his chops as he tries to fake a smile
A friend indeed but what I need's someone who'll stay a while
Someone to stay a while

You can bend my ear
We can talk all day
Just make sure I'm around
When you've finally got something to say

He drops hints but he won't tell you what's really on his mind
But I know if I look that it's easy to find
And he's got a way with his anger and the way he lets it show
Like the smoldering smoke when the fire's left the coals
When the fire has left the coals

You can take me down
To show me your home
Not the place where you live
But the place where you belong

You can bend my ear
We can talk all day
Just make sure I'm around
When you've finally got something to say

And what are you meaning by
"I don't deserve this life?"

Well, his door is always open and he's always got the time
To give a little something even though he gets behind
And your trips become his and your lives are intertwined
But like the horse with the junkie it's all in your mind
It's all in your mind

You can take me down
To show me your home
Not the place where you live
But the place where you belong

You can bend my ear
We will talk all day
Just make sure I'm around
When you've finally got something to say

And what are you meaning by
"I don't deserve this life?"
