Garden Homes, Greening of the Neighbohood

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Here in Japan even the suburbs are filled with concrete and lack of space.  There seems to be no end to the ribbons of concrete and asphalt that line the streets of this country.  Even when there are parks, and green spaces they never seem that removed from all the the manmade structures that surround them.

Houses, even like these, that are more in the countryside, suburbs than where I live there is still a lack of gardenable space; therefore, the proud home owners do everything in their power to use what little space they have to both surround themselves with the colors of nature.

Someday, I will be able to have an endless garden, filled with flours and fruits of the earth, until that time, I will enjoy what others have to offer.

In a Humid Haze

Monday, June 28th, 2010

The humidity pushed pretty close to 100% today.  The only saving grace was that the actual temperature was not that high, but it did feel like being smacked in the face when I walked out the door.

Everything took on a soft glow today.  I speculate that the water molecules in the air refract more light than on a dry day.  The hues were bright, as perspiration slid down my arm.

Those lost treasures that have been waiting though all weather. Hoping to be picked up and reunited with their owners again.

So stay cool.  Keep the water cool and the beer ice cold as we head into the wet season.
