I know I have Miami blood. I can get used to the cold weather here, even if that weather is never that cold, but I don’t really love the weather in the winter time. I dress fro it. Wrap my neck in a scarf, pull gloves over my fingers, and double up on socks. It helps, but I still feel cold.
I spotted this little one the other day as I was walking through a quiet Chiba neighborhood. Still amazed at how many flowers are actually in bloom, considering it is just about the end of December. Here she was rolling its tint petals in on themselves trying to keep warm just like me. Turning its head towards the sunshine to keep all of its petals warm, just as I love it as I ride the train and the sunlight flickers as we zoom past the concrete shapes of Tokyo.
Just being myself, trying to keep warm. Bundle up everyone.
