Marriage Talk The servant is blushing with marriage talk but Ichiro causes tears to spring from her eyes when he says marriage isn't worth a blush, one pays dearly for marital pleasures and her character will be destroyedmore surely than if she'd remained unwed. Ichiro loves to stare into the sky. He says the sky makes life worth living. Autumn is his favourite season. But there are few days even then that live up to his expectations. His aged father has become temporarily obsessed with morning glories and Ichiro's wife is becoming more interested in Jiro, Ichiro's brother: in fact they've already spent a night together in a Wakayama hotel during a great storm with high winds and a sonata of waves smashing against the concrete breakwaters under their windows which were open because of the heat.
