    Beautiful, Akira. I sometimes forget how soothing it is to visit your blog. Just like one sits down at a quiet corner of a park and simply enjoys the sights, with no particular thought on one’s mind. As a reader, I can only thank you for providing us with some much comfort all year round. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and that 2016 brings you much strength and love. Besides, of course, a visit to New York; you may be surprised about how many of those places there are here, just as in Tokyo. All the best.

    We did indeed. The moon and stars were clear and beautiful here last night.

  4. Lucky you, Ashi Akira! I didn’t see the moon! The sky was very cloudy!

  5. How lovely to make this link. I walked out near midnight on Christmas Eve and there it was, lighting the garden.

      I’m glad you did. I’m reminded of what my mother said. She said, “Whenever you get lonely, look at the moon. I’ll be looking at the same moon with you.” It was when I was separated from my parents to evacuate from the city to somewhere safer from war attacks so that at least little kids would be saved to ‘keep our race from extinction.’ At the ‘departure ceremony’ all our friends and relatives hugged me for goodbye thinking that it was the last moment they could do so while alive. But my mother didn’t. All her facial muscles tightened up and looked angry. I know now that if she hugged me then she could never let me go again even by the force of the men policing there in their khaki clothes. It was 70 years ago but I have a feeling I’ve never got older these years

      • This both sad and very beautiful, some emotions do get stilled by time. I have been reading my parent’s letters to each other during the war and come to know my mother as a young woman. I appreciate her even more now, than I did when she was alive.
