The Hovel is No More


The space is the same.  The fence is the same.  The fork in the tree trunk is the same.  Now the hovel that was there is gone.  It is only a flattened piece of land.  It was sad to see it go but it was so decrepit that it was better to be leveled than left to crumble into itself in the next shaker.

Good bye!  It was a pleasure gazing at your corrugated siding, and your sliding windows.  I will miss you.

Branching out in the Winter

Branching Out in Winter

The winter snow was quickly melted into a memory.  there are still a few patches of snow here and there, but for the most part on the Eastern side of Tokyo the snow has vanished.

I am not one who wants to live in a place with a blistering cold weather.  My Miami blood is too unaccustomed to that kind of weather.  But I do enjoy the beauty of the snow.  The white crystals that form on the leaves.  The powered that drops from the skies.  They are all so gorgeous to me.

Since the March 11th earthquake and tsunami I have been reconnected with the natural world around me.  I am syncing with nature, and noticing the habits and life of the plant life around me.  It wasn’t that I never noticed before, it is more of that I never payed close attention.

All the changes from one season to the next.  How flowers bud, blossom, and shrivel in due time.  It is all a matter of time between the birth, death and rebirth of the natural world.

I plan to keep in sync with the world around me.  At least the best as I can.
