“ Late March, On The Tama ”



The buds and new green
are present in the landscape-
Next, will be light pink…

A few days ago I took a bike ride to a nearby onsen.
It was both relaxing and refreshing,
and a nice way to get acquainted with the surrounding seasonal changes.

Good gravy Marie, where did
all the time go to?!

Michio and I went to "Electric Town" yesterday,
to search for a new computer.

No luck, for me, but my iMac search continues, while I temporarily use a WINDOWS pc.

It takes some getting used to, but I couldn't miss my son's birthday post!



My next gig is next week, with Tomoya Hara:

"Solo"




On Saturday, it was a beautiful warm day...

A perfect day to join my friends for a visit to Kyodo No Mori,
for plum blossom viewing!

It's now a week into the season,
so many blooms were open, but many more will open!

This most certainly means a return visit...

The light was magical, when we all met at 2pm...

Today, was my monthly Etegami session.

We also had a birthday cake for 3 March birthdays,
in our group...

Later, walking back to the station,
the air turned dramatically gloomy.

Michio is 27!



Happy Birthday, Michio !

The cherry blossoms are starting to open,
but the cedar-pollen allergy season is also in full-swing,
making going outdoors uncomfortable for many,
including my son...
