I am going after my holiday in five days. My family and 

I have reserved a wooden house in the local resort.

It is near a river Oka in a pine forest. 

I suppose it's very healthy and interesting to my wife, me and our children.

Miracles give delight by Richard Lew. ’66 feelings
A strange place
A strange place
A place unknown
Only a stone’s throw
From the Human race.

It is not deep
It is not wide
It is not tall.
Or small.

This place you shall never find
For it is mine and mine alone.
Strangest of all
No place is so unknown.

Nowadays the term is widely used to describe any person who is usually found on the wrong or losing side in any controversy, especially one who takes such positions out of sheer cantankerousness.(気難しさ)
