Living Diversity

マニラでのソーシャルワークとの出会い記録から、日本のソーシャルワーク×多文化/法的支援、インドで暮らし、働き、旅するカラフルさ、インド&野草ごはん、身体を解すこと、レジリエンス/回復についての試行錯誤を記録したく。 私もあなたも、ゆるく受けいれて生きていけるといいなと祈りながら。 フィリピンのダグダガイという竹の棒とココナッツオイルを使うフットセラピーが大好きでマニラまで習いにゆき、ひっそり身近なひとに好評です:)要らないものがごっそり削ぎ落とされ、ぐぐっと押しポイントに届く感じがたまりません^^

Watched a documentary titled "Families on move "

An ethnographic documentary on migration and family
http://yutakana.org/fotm/

The number of migrants has been increasing around the world. 

Cross-border migrators create and maintain their “family,” which can never be contained within one country. 

They live in a “transnational life-world,” wherein they continue cross-border interaction among their family members who live in their home country or in other countries. 


I've also moved somehow many times, 4 times + one temporary stay in Manila , so far.
I left my hometown when I started my first job.
It was partially because I wanted live apart from my original family.
Then I move to Tokyo by the order of the company.
I shifted to India cz I wanted to live abroad again. Living in Manila was much more  comfortable than Japan for me. I felt I could be myself there.
Then I burnt out in the Japanese society in Delhi which made me shift to Japan, but not my hometown.
I've left my partners and jobs when I left the place... Sometimes I feel rootless, which seems unstable, uneasy..kind of negative.
The director of the film, Kana-san points out that from the view of "settlement normativity" , migrants, being minorities, feel ashamed.
However, their experiences are interesting
