Another day, another moment to be thankful for my improving health. I was able to venture outdoors again. The sunshine felt amazing as I moved out from the shadows.
The skies were absolutely cloudless in the crispy January air There are even dirty mounds of ice that has survived the two weeks since the blizzard hit Tokyo. In my more than 10 years here in Tokyo, I have never seen snow of any amount survive this long. The natural world even in this urban landscape never ceases to make my soul fill with wonder.
Just cycling along observing the world around me is what I do, and as far back as I can remember it is what I always have done. The thrill of observing the world has always been there for me.
Being there, at the right time, in the right place, with that light makes all the difference. It is the chance to be at one with the moment. You can’t force that moment, you just have to let it happen, and flow through you.
