Change of Air

December is finally here! A busy December has begun.
Depending on the location, the autumn leaves, which are a symbol of autumn, are in full bloom, but the weather has suddenly become colder and it feels like winter.
Now, this "air" is a colorless, odorless, transparent mixed gas.
On the other hand, it also has the meaning of a situation or atmosphere that controls people's feelings in that situation.
``Reading the atmosphere'' is a common phrase today, but each person has their own individuality.
When this word is brought up too often, I sometimes feel uncomfortable.
It's a word I didn't hear much when I was growing up, so from kids today.
I sometimes feel sorry when I hear this word...
However, it may be obvious that it is a keyword in interactions with groups and friends.

I feel that air changes, not just oxygen.
I think the term "reading the atmosphere" has become established over time.
In my case, I've loved leather jackets since I was young, and I thought, ``Leather should be thick and hard after all!''
Nowadays, people are starting to think, ``I like that it's soft while still having a suitable thickness.''
Things that we took for granted until yesterday can change completely.
There is always a reason for that, and I don't think everything will suddenly change one day.

Lately, I've been feeling a strong sense of such a change in the atmosphere even in my daily life.
・Back in the days when there were no cell phones, it was an awkward situation when you called your girlfriend's house and her father answered...
・Ashtrays used to be installed everywhere. Today, when I was having a smoke on the balcony, I heard the window next door slam shut...
・“Huh? Is that the case now?” The gap I feel in my interactions with future generations
There are endless examples, but they will continue to change.
What changes and what stays the same. What should be changed and what should not be changed.
A highly difficult theme that I felt with the winter air...
Change is exciting, both good and bad.
