3, 2, 1...Lift Off

This time, three weeks from now, I will be on a plane to Japan.

Returning to the land of the rising sun.

The land of green tea
and cherry blossoms
red maple leaves
and bamboo butterflies
cold soba

and hot sake

woodblock prints

and Astro Boy

painted ladies

and paper lanterns
tatami and tofu
miso and matcha
ponds and pondering
singing cicadas
and wind-up birds...

The land of
my inspiration.
