Passing through

I was going to go explore Prospect park today

and while I was walking towards the park,

I found a bus schedule

at a bus stop and it said

‘approximate length of the ride 66 min.’

That suddenly sounded very exciting.

so I decided change my plan

and I hopped on to a bus.

From Prospect park

to Green point.

The ride was long

and I loved it.

I didn’t have anywhere I needed to get to,

simply enjoying the ride

seeing all the different areas

and being a passive observer of the city.

yes, SMILE

for every sistah in you.

the warmth

Looking back at old photos.

Just feeling a little nostalgic for warmth.

It’s snowing again here in NY

and it’s about 10F outside.

I have never been in a place so cold

besides the freezer we had at the store I worked at.

A human body could stand under a harsh condition,

and I am fascinated by my own adaptability.

Oh boy, but I would really love to

take off my coat and boots and run around

without worrying about slipping or sliding on the snow.

Just a day or two would be fine.

I know, this is just me

wanting something that is on the opposite end.

I do that sometimes.

a pen and a notebook

So, I got a call from my parents in Japan

and they told me that

they have to demolish my grandpa’s house

sooner than they wanted.

Which means, I need to modify my to-do-LIST.

————————————————–

□ Make a photo album of my Grandpa’s fort

(The house my dad grew up is going to be

torn down now that my grandpa passed away.

…it’s sad.)

….sad.

□ create ‘Mom’s recipe book’

□ Travel to a country that is completely new to me.

□ Start studying another language.

(…and I am thinking French would be good.)

□design/make my business card

————————————————-

While I was at Millers by myself drinking,

I realized I didn’t bring any book to read

so I started making a list.

(Thank goodness I had my pen and my notebook,

I know this may sound silly but

I can’t just write with whatever pen and a piece of paper.)

The lists were…

– what I want to do by the time I turn 30,

– what I want to do while I am back in Japan

(so that I would know how long

I should be staying there this time.)

– what I want to do this year (besides the ones I listed above)

and this list has stuff like

‘always keep nails clean and polished.’

I guess making a list is like a little game to me.

Write down things that wouldn’t be so difficult to accomplish

but just the fact that you can cross out that item

is satisfying and motivating

and I think it makes it easier for me

to challenge a bigger thing.

kiddies

Spending much time with kids,

spending much time

reading books to them,

I’ve become to realize that

I would really be happy translating

children’s books.

Another thing to add to my

2011 To-Do-LIST.

First of all,

I have to decide which book,

and whether the book has already been

translated into Japanese or into English etc etc…

Mmm.

chocolatey way

I really really want some chocolate NOW

but I don’t have it

so I am trying to satisfy my cravings with

Smith’s Mocha Rose Lip Balm

but of course, it doesn’t work.

Anyways, this has nothing to do with

the photos I’ve put up

and even the two photos have

nothing to do with each other

besides the fact that I took them.

If you were shown my photos,

would you know that it was taken

by a same person?

I think that is what I need.

A signature.

Not an actual signature but

something that is very unique and original.

I admire and respect artists

who could do that

and make people say

‘this piece is done by this person.’

***************************

How did chocolate bring me here?

Freedom

Another weekend has come

and I am in the city again.

This time, I am not in Williamsburg

but in another part of Brooklyn.

This morning I got up

and I suddenly felt the joy

of not having to do anything.

I could walk around aimlessly and explore

and then eat and drink whenever and wherever I like.

Oh boy, what a joy.

(Though I did have some work to be done.)

Since I probably only have limited time

here in NY,

I was feeling like

I should be doing something special

every weekend.

Well, not doing anything is a wonderful choice too.

Just come out to the city,

walk around and look around

and then go back to the room,

sit down on a couch

and work on some writings.

I like it.

Weekend=Caffeinated

Tomorrow is Friday.

Friday is the beginning of Weekend.

Weekend happens in the City.

City means Williamsburg (…for me.)

Williamsburg means Coffee in every corner.

Coffee won’t be rejected by Yoshi.

Yoshi will be Caffeinated.

Am I addicted to coffee

or am I addicted to the act of holding

a large coffee cup.

Perhaps both.

Alien Abduction

Location: Tokyo Japan

camera used: Olympus XA

…………………………………..

Actually,

I think I accidentally opened the camera

before the film was finished.

I like how it looks though.
