What Is Culture?
Culture, first of all, is farming: giving food to animals, making plants take roots in the fertile land, helping their growth, and getting more food.

Culture, frequently, is development in the society: ways and tendency of living, working or playing. It's like farming: the land and the weather make the tendency.

Culture, most of all, is fruit of the society: development of arts, music and writings.

Said's book I'm reading is about culture, or arts, specially prose fiction of noted British writers, and how those works took Britain's relations with other countries.

Dear Ohyamasan:

Ryota's Daybook: Language Arts & Basic English is still open, but probably I may not put new notes there.

And I haven't made up my mind, with regret. I'm still testing.
