伝説のストリッパー、一条さゆり(本名・池田和子)は、1972年、大阪・吉野ミュージックでの引退興行中に「特出しショー」をやっていて公然わいせつ容疑で現行犯逮捕される。 一条の「共通の趣味を持った人たちが劇場という閉ざされた空間に集まってショーを見ることが、なぜ公然わいせつになるのか」、「ショーを企画し客を集めている興行師もいるのに、なぜ踊り子だけが摘発の対象になるのか」という踊り子の総意を背負った主張は、もてはやされはしても認められることはなく、結局、懲役刑が確定し、一条は和歌山刑務所に服役。出所後、釜ケ崎で名を変え、ひっそり暮らすように。なぜ釜ケ崎なのかはわからないというが、前科者で元ストリッパーという人間をやさしく迎えてくれる街は、釜ケ崎しかなかったのだという説がもっぱらだ。 釜ケ崎の地で、一条は男に翻弄され酒に溺れる人生を歩むことになる。63年、釜ヶ崎の酒場で働いていたとき、交際中の男にガソリンをかけられ、大やけどを負い、1年3カ月の入院生活を余儀なくされる。その後、生活保護を受けながら釜ヶ崎の解放会館の3畳1間で暮らし、1997年8月3日、肝硬変のため60年の生涯を閉じた。

Well here it is… the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise…How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. And so…now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but … Continue reading

2007年4月、私は国立がんセンターの総長を定年退職し、これからは妻と2人、旅行をしよう、好きな絵を描いていこうと思っていました。その矢先、妻が肺小細胞がんで亡くなったのです。 40年間一緒に暮らした相棒がいなくなり、完全にうつ状態になりました。食欲がなく、無理をして料理にはしをつけても味がしない。夜は睡眠剤を飲まないと眠れない。体重は3日間で3キログラムも落ちました。 それからは酒浸りの日々でした。浴びるほど飲み、生活はめちゃくちゃ。朝起きて新聞を開いても読む気がしない。玄関で妻の靴がチラッと目に入ると涙が噴き出してくる。妻と一緒に何度も通った道にさしかかるときも、その頃のことを思い出し、涙があふれ出てきました。 医師という職業柄、これまで数多くの人の死生観に触れてきました。宗教に救われたという人の話もよく聞きました。私は宗教に縁がなかったので、頼ることはしませんでした。この苦しみに一人で耐え、一人で生きていくしかないと思いました。 「もう生きていても仕方ない」。何度こう思ったかしれません。最初の1カ月ぐらいは、心理的な痛みだけでなく、叫び声を上げたくなるような肉体的な痛みも繰り返し感じました。3カ月ほど経つと、少しずつ回復の兆しが見え始めました。妻が天国から見て悲しんでいるに違いないと考えるようになり、気持ちを切り替えるよう心掛けたのです。悲しみが癒えることはありません。でも、時間とともに和らいではいく。時の流れに身を任せればいい。そう思えるようになったのです。以後、心の回復はおよそ3カ月ごとに変化を遂げていったように思います。

Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

It has always seemed strange to me…The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.

In 1978, Soviet geologists prospecting in the wilds of Siberia discovered a family of six, lost in the taiga (for 40 years, this Russian family was cut off from all human contact, unaware of WWII). The low door creaked, and the figure of a very old man emerged into the light of day, straight out of a fairy tale. Barefoot. Wearing a patched and repatched shirt made of sacking. He wore trousers of the same material, also in patches, and had an uncombed beard. His hair was disheveled. He looked frightened and was very attentive…. We had to say something, so I began: ‘Greetings, grandfather! We’ve come to visit!’ The … Continue reading

People think being alone makes you lonely, but I don’t think that’s true. Being surrounded by the wrong people is the loneliest thing in the world. What’s painful is that what you had together, all your inside jokes and favorite restaurants and that movie you both loved but everyone else hated—that’s gone, and there’s no replacement for it, you never replicate it, never get to have it ever again…

How Doctors Die Years ago, Charlie, a highly respected orthopedist and a mentor of mine, found a lump in his stomach. He had a surgeon explore the area, and the diagnosis was pancreatic cancer. This surgeon was one of the best in the country. He had even invented a new procedure for this exact cancer that could triple a patient’s five-year-survival odds–from 5 percent to 15 percent–albeit with a poor quality of life. Charlie was uninterested. He went home the next day, closed his practice, and never set foot in a hospital again. He focused on spending time with family and feeling as good as possible. Several months later, he … Continue reading

デンマークやスウェーデンには、いわゆる寝たきり老人はいないと言われています。イギリス、アメリカ、オーストラリアにも寝たきり老人はほとんどいないそうです。一方、我が国のいわゆる老人病院には、一言も話せない、胃ろうが作られた寝たきりの老人がたくさんいます。 日本の医療水準は決して低くありません。むしろ優れているといっても良いくらいです。 ストックホルム近郊の病院や老人介護施設には、予想通り、寝たきり老人は1人もいませんでした。胃ろうの患者もいませんでした。その理由は、高齢あるいは、がんなどで終末期を迎えたら、口から食べられなくなるのは当たり前で、胃ろうや点滴などの人工栄養で延命を図ることは非倫理的であると、国民みんなが認識しているからでした。逆に、そんなことをするのは老人虐待という考え方さえあるそうです。 ですから日本のように、高齢で口から食べられなくなったからといって胃ろうは作りませんし、点滴もしません。肺炎を起こしても抗生剤の注射もしません。内服投与のみです。したがって両手を拘束する必要もありません。つまり、多くの患者さんは、寝たきりになる前に亡くなっていました。寝たきり老人がいないのは当然でした。 さて、欧米が良いのか、日本が良いのかは、わかりません。しかし、全くものも言えず、関節も固まって寝返りすら打てない、そして、胃ろうを外さないように両手を拘束されている高齢の認知症患者を目の前にすると、人間の尊厳について考えざるを得ません。

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual. Palliative care: provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms; affirms life and regards dying as a normal process; intends neither to hasten or postpone death; integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care; offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible until death; offers a support system to help the family cope during the patients … Continue reading

それが人本来の自然な姿じゃないのでしょうか?食べたくないのであれば、本人の欲求に任せるべきです。 骨折等の怪我などをきっかけに、退院後は痴呆が進行するケースが殆どです。介護の負担も増します。長生きして欲しいと思う気持ちは解りますが、この国の老人医療は医者の意見をまともに聴き過ぎです。 医者は何が何でも長生きさせようとするものです。痛み止めすら、寿命を縮めるからという理由で簡単には打ちません。苦しむ患者の意志など無視しているかの様です。頭が固いのか、金儲けが先きなのか不思議に感じます。 まもなく天寿を終え、己の意思を失いつつある老人に、むりやり長生きさせる必要があるのでしょうか?もう、自然に任せていいのではないでしょうか。痛みや苦痛だけを取り除く事だけを考えてあげてはいかがでしょう。 ご自身も身体を壊されぬよう、お大事に。

Charles Bukowski

What is terrible is not death but the lives people live or don’t live up until their death. People with no morals often considered themselves more free, but mostly they lacked the ability to feel hate or love. If you want to know who your friends are, get yourself a jail sentence. We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.

They’re getting slaughtered by the thousands.” “It’s not our business.” “Well, maybe I should make it mine.” “Damn fool,” the old man said, a little fearful. “Don’t you do anything stupid, you hear me?” The following morning, Daniel Quinn presented himself at … Continue reading

On December 22, 1849, the tsarist government staged a sadistically brutal and cold-blooded near-execution of 21 members of Petrashevsky’s circle. This was aimed at breaking their will and bringing them to their knees. The condemned were dressed in white shrouds, blindfolded and tied to stakes prior to being shot. The roll of drums resounded through the drill-ground the execution was being staged in, and the condemned were preparing to meet their fate when at the last moment an imperial A.D.C. came galloping into the square with a rescript from the tsar ordering the commutation of the death sentence to penal servitude, and then exile. Dostoyevsky’s life had been spared, but … Continue reading

深刻さを増すシャープの経営危機。グループの社員5万7000人を待ち受けるのは、給与削減か、リストラか、台湾企業による苛烈な支配か、それとも倒産か。 縮小が発表された栃木工場に勤務する30代後半のAさんは深い溜め息をついた。 「地元ではシャープに入れば一生安泰だといわれてきた。描いていた人生設計が完全に狂ってしまいました。工場では約1600人の従業員のうち、AV事業に携わる1500人から希望退職者を募ると聞いています。地元で採用された人間全員がリストラ対象ということらしい。子供はまだ小学生でこれからもっと教育費がかかる。この田舎に再就職先なんてないのに、どうしたらいいのか……」 多くの電機メーカーが何年も前から大規模なリストラを断行していたのを横目に、「勝ち組メーカー」シャープは我が世の春を謳歌していた。液晶パネル、携帯電話端末、太陽電池の3つの主力事業が絶好調だった2007年度、売上高は3兆円を超えた。社員の平均年収は700万円超で、福利厚生も充実――ところが、今年に入って急転直下、極寒の冬に突入する。

I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy – ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed all the rest of life for a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, next, because it relieves loneliness–that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss. I have sought it finally, because in the union of love I have seen, in a mystic miniature, the prefiguring vision of the heaven that saints and poets have imagined. This is what I sought, and though it might seem too good for human life, this is what–at last–I have … Continue reading

> Suicide is an important scientific phenomenon. Yet its causes remain poorly understood. This study documents a paradox: the happiest places have the highest suicide rates. The study combines findings from two large and rich individual‐level data sets — one on life satisfaction and another on suicide deaths — to establish the paradox in a consistent way across U.S. states. It replicates the finding in data on Western industrialized nations and checks that the paradox is not an artifact of population composition or confounding factors. The study concludes with the conjecture that people may find it particularly painful to be unhappy in a happy place, so that the decision to … Continue reading

If I were to ask you what’s more common in the U.S., homicide or suicide, what would you say? Homicide is certainly a lot more prominent; it’s constantly in the headlines and in our public consciousness. But the fact is that suicide is more than twice as common as homicide. The preliminary numbers for 2009, the most recent year for which we have data, show there were roughly 36,500 suicides in the U.S. and roughly 16,500 homicides.So why don’t we hear more about suicide? David Lester is willing to entertain any theory, to examine any pattern. Interestingly, he’s found that suicide and homicide are often perfectly out of synch with … Continue reading

Now, a leading scientist suggests that her genes were fundamentally altered through suffering starvation as a teenager in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands. Dr Nessa Carey adds that this link between poor diet and genetic disruption might explain why we are now increasingly suffering from modern health crises such as obesity and diabetes. From November 1944 until May 1945, a period known in Dutch history as ‘the hunger winter’, she suffered terrible starvation. The Germans blockaded her area of … Continue reading

>As with the practice of silence, the concept of pilgrimage is not new. It is as old as the urge to wander, and has its roots in all the major historical religions as well as a number of the smaller tribal cultures, including those of Egypt and Meso-America. The quantity of pilgrimage and related literature written by theologians, historians, social scientists, and others is staggering.

>… 僕には働くといふことが苦手である。ましてや他人の意志の下に働くといふことは、どうあつても出來ない相談である。それなら自分の意志の鞭を背に受けて、嚴肅な人生の途に上らねばならぬといふことは、それが假令考へられるにしても、その考を直ちに實行に移すことを難んずる状態である。今までに一つとして纏つた仕事を成して來なかつたのが何よりの證據である。  空と雲と大地とは終日ながめくらしても飽くことを知らないが、半日の讀書は僕を倦ましめることが多い。新しい家に移つてからは、空地に好める樹木を植ゑたり、ほんの慰みに畑をいぢつたりするだけの仕事しか爲さないのである。そして僅に發芽する蔬菜のたぐひは、これを順次に、いかにも生に忠實な蟲に供養するまでゝある。勿論厨房の助にならう筈はない。こんな有樣なのであるから、田園生活なんどは毫頭想ひも寄らぬことがらである。僕の生活は都會ともつかず田園ともつかず、その中間にあつて、相變らず空漠なその日暮らしで始終してゐる。そして當然僕の生涯の絃の上には、倦怠と懶惰が執ねくもその灰色の手をおいて、無韻の韻を奏でてゐるのである。  考へて見れば、これが「生の充實」を稱ふる現代の金口に何等の信仰を持たぬ人間の必定墮ちてゆく羽目であらう。その上、僕には本能的な生の衝動が極めて微弱であるから、悔恨の情さへ起り得ない。とどのつまり永遠に墮ちてゆく先は無爲の陷穽である。

> The group of laid-off Ottawa workers who won a Lotto 6/49 jackpot this week could barely contain their excitement as they picked up their $7 million cheque on Friday. The 18 winners, 10 of whom just received pink slips from their employer, Smart Technologies, whooped in glee as they claimed their prize at the Ontario Lottery headquarters in Toronto. “It’s surreal,” one winner told CTV News on Friday. “This has been nothing but a roller coaster ride.” Just days after learning that their Calgary-based software manufacturer decided to close its Ottawa plant the group found out they won.

> There are rules of money that the rich play by, and there are the rules that the other 95 percent of the population plays by. And the 95 percent learns those rules at home and in school. That is why it’s risky today to simply say to a child, `Study hard and look for a job.’ A child today needs a more sophisticated education, and the current system is not delivering the goods. — Most people, working for a paycheck, are making the owner, or the shareholders richer. Your efforts and success will help provide for the owner’s success and retirement. — There was a long silence between us. … Continue reading

> There is a belief entrenched in American culture that career planning Is a logical and linear activity… …But it’s not. We are expected to choose a career from among thousands of possibilities, often before having a chance to explore one option. Even experts cannot always anticipate the economic, social, and political events that will impact employment. How can anyone be expected to prepare for a career in a world that is constantly emerging? We do not always need a plan to create a career. Instead, we need a plan to act on happenstance — to transform unplanned events into career opportunity.

> Sixteen years ago I was not at all sheepish. I was bookish, library- ish, wine-and-appetizer-ish. Decidedly unsheepish. My only exposure to sheep was as a child visiting my grandmother’s sheep ranch in southeastern Montana—lots of dust, lots of heat, and every now and then a little orphan lamb that I could help Grandma feed with a bottle. My grandmother left the ranch when I was a teenager, so sheep played no role in my life after that. As an adult, I met Melissa through a personal ad, the pre- Internet method for dating. She and I were totally different, not two people who should build a life together, so … Continue reading

> On average, they will enjoy a much higher standard of life than we do, partly because they will be healthier, even robust, and independent for most of their long lives. But medical advances will likely not be sufficient to secure a bright future for the new old age. We will also need new approaches to, and expectations of, employment and career; new regulatory frameworks for savings and retirement; and possibly new objectives in education to support individuals whose employment, household composition, location, and interests are sure to evolve as they enjoy eight, nine or 10 decades of maturity.

> Finally, after years of pain and struggle, I had accepted the fact that I would never be a good golfer. No matter how many hours I practiced, no matter how many instructors I saw, how many books and magazines I read, or how many teaching aids I tried. Then it hit me. According to Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’s book “On Death and Dying,” Acceptance was the final stage of grief that terminal patients experience before dying, the others being Anger, Denial, Bargaining, and Depression. I was in the final stage! When I started thinking about it, I realized that I’d gone through every one of those stages, but not as … Continue reading

> 現在、みなさんのような素敵な働き女子に見合うだけのナイスな男子は、圧倒的に世の中に不足しています(それはなにも経済力だけの話ではなく、コミュニケーション能力や見た目など、トータルでの話です)。ハッキリ言って、この10年で日本の女子は男子に比べてちょっと素敵になりすぎたのです。 それはもはやどうしようもない自明の理。それをどれだけ嘆こうとも「なんで太陽は東から昇るの!?」と愚痴るようなものです。 一方で、やみくもに「現実を見て妥協しろ」という人もいますが、妥協してまで結婚したくない、というのも本音なはず。妥協したくなければ妥協なんてしなくていいです。 毎日を楽しく過ごし、その上で出会いの可能性を少し高めてみる。素敵な相手が見つかるかもしれないし、見つからないかもしれない。その場合でも、十分楽しい。そうやってなんとか生きていくしかありません。

> Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life. Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite, for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of sixty more than a body of twenty. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to … Continue reading
