Sanshi: “I, the fact is, have been blessed.” 三枝:「僕は 恵まれたと言うことです」

On July 17, Sanshi posted the following regarding taking the name Katsura Bunshi VI:

More than anything
I’m glad things ended at the Kyôbashi Kagetsu Theater without a hitch.
 
Now
Just why I want to move from Sanshi to Bunshi
I’ll start with this
 
These [artistic names]
Along with stories themselves
Transcend time
Connected to artistic schools
They are like family heirlooms 
They are a hanshika’s destiny. This is something one can’t have though they may desire it
I
The fact is, have been blessed.
 
But
Still
This incredible, monumental name
I can but gaze at it  
It feels not like reality.
 
In time
I can only hope the name begins to fit
Like wearing suits for the first time
At first they never look right
 
But, but
 
Pleasing my audiences
Is something I will strive for
By dedicating myself wholly to rakugo.
 
Please
Look at me in the long run.

今日、7月17日に三枝師匠が次のようにブログに書きました:

なによりも
京橋花月を無事終えて良かったです。

では
なぜ
三枝から文枝になりたいのか
と言う話から

それは
噺とともに
時代を越えて
脈々と繋いできた
家宝みたいなもので
噺家の宿命だと思います。継ぎたくても継げないことで
僕は
恵まれたと言うことです。

でも
まだ
立派な重い名前を
ながめているだけで
実感はありません。

そのうち
似合ってくればよいと
はじめてのスーツも
はじめはみにあわないもので

ただただ
お客様に喜んで
頂けるように
落語に打ち込むだけです。

どうか
長い目で見てください。
