I often go to my local library. I usually go there to borrow some foreign books. But I tend to borrow essays or autobiographies in Japanese these days.

Especially, I'm interested in some books written by a noted doctor. He is Shigeaki Hinohara, the 100 year old active physician. He had a talk with various people and wrote books about those talks. I read two books about his talks. One of them is with a handicapped painter who paints pictures by only his mouth, Tomihiro Hoshino. The other talk is with a handicapped sportswriter(But he is an elementary school teacher now.), Hirotada Ototake. Although I happened to read both talks by handicapped peoples, their talks with Dr.Hinohara taught me a lot of lessons and roused me to activity.

In the same website, I found articles about two peoples except Dr.Hinohara.

As for Dr.Hinohara, he began to use Facebook since this year! He is so energetic person, isn't he?
