Got to do some Gardening

Friday, July 15th, 2011

I was wandering my way back to the station today, taking a route I had never taken before.  This is something that I really like to do.  The chance to just stumble upon something I have never seen before, and challenge myself by finding that opportunity to make art happen.

The sun was really blazing today.  The temperature must have been about 33 (93) out in the sun.  Beads of sweat rolled down the back of my shirt as I set off between the narrow roads that meander in this small town in Chiba.  I came across a small plot of land that had been sowed with some corn.  A beautiful row of corn whose silk was glistening in the scorching sun.  In front of the row of corn was a tuber vegetable of some kind.

It made think about how connected all humans used to be to the land.  The land was were our sustenance  came from.  Our ancient, and not so ancient, ancestors tilled the earth in order to feed their families.  I have my little patio garden filled with fruit trees that are more like giant bonsai plants than trees, and assorted herbs that I use in the kitchen, but nothing like a plot of land that can be tilled and the reap the harvest to serve up on a beautiful sabbath dinner.

It is something that is being added to a list of changes that must occur.  Some land to grow some vegetables, or at least convert part of my patio garden into a vegetable garden.  All I have to figure out is how to keep my kitties from using the vege garden for recreational purposes.

Shabbat Shalom Everyone!!

Then Yoko looked at her pocket watch.  And she could tell by the tick tick tick that it was time to head down the lilly hole.

End of Another Day in Tokyo

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

As I was ridding the train home the purple clouds were rolling in, with the promise of more rain.  The skies and the hushed hues made for a lovely end to a day that seemed to keep on going.

After being awoken twice in the night by aftershocks that were relatively close to where I live.  And also being awoken by nightmares of more quakes, I was so pleased to see the velvet skies on my way home.

The skyline in the distance seemed to stretch from one end of the earth to another.  The clouds seemed heavy as they pushed down on the skyline, and the ground was still, for once.

I figure that the days, and weeks ahead will be like this.  Sometimes I will not be able to get a good nights sleep, but others I will be blessed by catching a snow capped Mt. Fuji on my commute.  There are still things to learn, and to explore.

In all it was just another end of a day in Tokyo.

3 O’clock in the P.M.

It was 3 O’clock in the P.M. when I took these images.  The air has been full of pollen that is driving me to verge of my sanity.  I try to pay it no heed, by focusing on taking some pictures.  Delving into my own inner soul.  Round and round like the hole I photographed.

Don’t Be Like the Monkey

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Letting the breeze blow though my place, I picked out another few images from my stroll around Shibuya the other day.  And always remember this sage advice.  Do not be like the monkey.
