美術館から戻ると・・・再び山に呼ばれる画家の二人。本日はSRを試乗するSドウ氏。
 
motocross racer Kai and his dad stopped by just in time so we took them to the canyon, too. (although they were on the way to somewhere, they couldn't resist.) SR500, CB750, XS650.

ちょうど山に行こうとしていたら、モトクロスのレーサー少年Kイノスケとお父さんが来た。用事の途中で寄ってくれたにも関わらず、「山行くけど、行く?」「行きます、行きます!」ということで皆で山へ。SR500、王様のCB750、そしてN美氏のXS650。

Woman in Blue Reading a Letter is a painting by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. Part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam since 1885, it was the first Vermeer acquired by the museum.

The central element of the painting is a woman in blue standing in front of a window (not depicted) reading a letter. The woman appears to be pregnant, but this is not determined: although not universally accepted, many have argued that she appears so only because of the fashion of the day.

While the contents of the letter are not depicted, the composition of the painting has been mined for clues. The map of the Netherlands on the wall behind the woman has been interpreted as suggesting that the letter she reads was written by a traveling husband. Alternatively, the box of pearls barely visible on the table before the woman might suggest a lover, as pearls are a sometime symbol of vanity.

The painting is unique among Vermeer's interiors in that no fragment of corner, wall or ceiling can be seen.
