The cold winds have been blowing in the Tokyo area. I myself haven’t seen any snow yet, but others have told me they have spotted some. I have to don a pair of gloves to go shooting now. That isn’t so bad, except my fluffily gloves keeping getting stuck on the velcro of my camera case. I need to switch over to the neoprene gloves that I also use in the winter time.
This all being said that I was wandering down a street in Ichikawa, Chiba the other day when I spotted a small path that I had missed the other 100s of times I had walked down this path. I felt an urge deep down in my soul to follow this little side path. It wasn’t very long, only 20 or so meters when the path ended at a metallic gate, that was framed in by a tree full of some winter citrus.
It just made me realize that even a short journey could be fruitful. And then there are other journeys where you seem to get nowhere, and one never really knows which one in life will come your way. Follow those paths and find your fruit.
