Winter Sunshine at its Finest

Canal Side Weed Glow, UrayasuI

I’d like to consider this my therapeutic post.  I haven’t been able to venture out in nearly two weeks.  I was confined to my home recuperating.  I was getting a bit stir crazy that I seriously considered taking photographs of my blankets, in an homage to Monet who late in his years painted only his garden.

My health was feeling much better and the sunshine allowed me to be out for a bit.  It was still a tad cold for my taste but the skies were perfectly clear.

I look forward to being out in the sunshine in the coming weeks.  It felt right being in the sun’s rays with a camera in hand, and wheels under my feet.



Truthful Happy Ending

One positive event in the morning was that I saw Mt. Fuji with its first dusting of snow.  That is always a good sign.  It is a reminder that I am actually in Japan and not anywhere elese in the world.  The day quickly went down hill from there.  Overall it was quite a rough day.  It seemed like no matter what I do I was on the verge of just loosing my voice.  My throat ached and ached.  I wasn’t really able to get into the swing of things.

All of that changed as soon as I looked out the window at about a quarter to four.  The sky was filled with puffs of clouds with rays of gold spinning down to the horizon.  I just paused and stared for a minute.  I let the truth of this beautiful scene wash over all the troubles of the day.  They just melted away as I focused again at how beautiful, crazy, lovely this world is.

Truthful Happy Ending
