#My First Lodging

They were having a party at the place I arrived to, and the mah-jongg game was in full swing.
The house was so big I could get lost in it. It was so big that the staircase was located in two places.

The landlady is Mrs. Liang, and she is a Canadian of Chinese origin.
“The cold is biting here,” she says holding out an electric stove.
She gave me instructions, “And I always want you to switch off the lights at the entrance.” Then she showed me where the switch is and how to use it.

In my bed I reflect on the events of the day.
I caused a similar trouble at the Ōyamas’ as I did today at the airport. When I was at Sears shopping centre with the grandmother and the children, the children took a long time in toilet and I thought, “They must have forgotten about me and returned home,” so I left the shopping centre and went back home by myself.
I think I remember everyone being appalled by my judgement.

Gould is enthusiastic about numerology.
I wonder how he would interpret and explain the meaning of the date “June 15”.
On the first day upon my arrival to Toronto Gould performed Goldberg Variations in New York. I would love to know which variations he recorded that day.

After the interview, French director Monsaingeon filmed Gould’s performance of complete Goldberg variations. Today, that tape is a treasure for Gould’s fans.

Dr. Peter Ostwald points in his biography of Gould that Gould’s hands shook due to the side effects of medicines he took to suppress his poor health in order to be able to face the re-recording. Such Ostwald’s observation shows that the author of Gould’s biography was a true doctor.

Due to his “propensity” to have control over everything, Gould was set on using medicines to control his body as well.

Nights in Toronto were frightfully chilly. I couldn’t believe springs in northern countries came so late. The level of cold was completely different from what I was used to.
When Kotomi gave me an astonishing warning, “Please don’t eat other people’s food from the kitchen,” I turned tense and anxious about living with strangers.
The long first day was finally over.
