Oh My It’s Full of Windows

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

I won’t be seeing much of Ichikawa for most of the summer.  As I only got 4 hours sleep the night before stacked on top of mid 90 degrees weather, It was a miracle that I made it back to the station without passing out.

So, here they are the windows of Ichikawa.

Look, See, Open and let in the cool (cooler at least) night air.

Bring for the First Sheaths of the Harvest

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

I have been thinking about this a lot these days.  That in ancient times the first fruits of the harvest were given over to the priest of the the temple to be offered.  We have lost touch with our roots and connection to the land.  When do we plant, when do we harvest has all been lost to those that live in the metropolises of today.

I struggle to find those connections being a city dweller myself.  I maintain a simple patio garden filled with fruit and spice plants.  I have re committed myself to tending my plants more closely this year as a way to keep some connection with the biorhythms of the earth.

Keep on finding that connection.  Take care of your garden.  You are the master of the fields if you choose to be.

Drfiting of to a Metallic Daydream

As he drifts of to sleep, will he dream of electric orange sunflowers ever reaching for the sun’s energies?  Will the squeaky rusts slow the eyelids, drooping down.  Grinding against the steel as the asphalt melts a sea of prairie grass swaying in the summer breeze.

I do wonder about these things.

Only the metallic one knows for sure.

Takimoto Watch Shop, Political Poster Abstractions

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

Walking thought the little streets of Narashino I came across the Takimoto Watch Shop.  An establishment that looks as if it has been there for eternity.  A thick layer of age covered everything on in and out of the store.  A beautiful testament to the glory design of the Showa Era.
