Goodbye Fujieda

So, for the last couple of months, I had been working in Fujieda, Shizuoka. While yesterday was my last day, I’m not returning to Nagoya yet. Instead, I will now be working at two other branches in Shizuoka. That also meant another move (this time to a larger city).

Pink on Blue

Meijo Park, Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture

Since the weather was so nice last weekend, I decided to go for a walk around Meijo Park. I went expecting to see more cherry blossoms, as according to the forecast — and yes, it’s a thing — they were supposed to be in bloom.

The Lonely Flower

In a planter, on a quiet side street in Anjo, there lived a lonely flower.

Butterfly

It’s still pretty warm in Aichi even though we’re entering the typhoon season. On the way to work, I ran into this little guy. I had to take a picture.

Small Flowers

My garden has been doing well as of late. At the start of the summer, I had a little scare with some wilting and the death of one of my marigolds. I’ve since discovered that my apartment is prone to overheating during the afternoon, which means I need to water more frequently.

1001

When I started this blog I never imagined that I would ever write so many posts. It all started out as a challenge to myself to see if I could post a picture a day– I couldn’t– back in 2011. It slowly morphed into something of a journal before becoming what it is now. Where it will go from here, nobody knows, but it’s been fun and I hope to continue for years to come. Thanks for sticking with.

On being at home and listening to the rain…

Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time at home due to the State of Emergency across Japan. We are highly encouraged to stay home unless necessary, as is 90% of the world. Because of such, I have been finding myself with a lot more time on my hands, which has caused me to get creative in how to spend it. In addition to art, I’ve been working in my garden, cooking a lot, messaging friends and family, and surprisingly watching Netflix.

Normally I am not so big on TV or movies. I might see only one or two movies a year. I often don’t even keep my TV plugged in to be honest, but I need some way to generate some sound, besides the rain.

It’s been raining since Friday, though today we had sun-showers in the afternoon. And although it has been a tad wet, I’ve been keeping the window open to listen. The sound of rain has always been relaxing for me and I love the sound of a good downpour in particular.

Little Blue & Pink

Twice a week I am commuting to the somewhat far away city of Toyota. Because of the train schedule, I tend to get there a little early, so I’ve been exploring a bit.
