Recently I’ve been wishing to escape more and more, although I’m mostly where I’d like yo be. I do love living abroad, and for the most part I do love teaching, but there have been a few people that I do not enjoy being around as of late and tasks I can’t stand doing.
During those times, my mind wanders to undiscovered lands, uninhabited by people, and filled will all sorts of vegetation. I imagine napping under an ancient tree in a pleasantly warm climate. How nice that would be…
I dub this the fluffy pompom flower. It’s another one of the strange plants I saw at the Higashiyama Botanical Garden greenhouse.

I have no clue what this thing is called but it looks like a pack of q-tips my friend bought once.
Yamanashi is beautiful this time of year.

I will be moving out of my apartment in Anjo in about 37.5 hours. In that time, I still need to finish packing, finish cleaning, get the key from the Leopalace office in Nagoya, call the gas company, run a few personal errands, order new furnature, and try to find a couple of hours of sleep. Wish me luck.
