Someone stop the clock! Can you believe it’s May already?
Right now I feel like I could sleep for a week!
We had some glorious spring days in April and I’m hoping that trend will continue. The trees outside are so wonderfully green these days, it just makes me happy to my toes! I want to soak in all the fresh leaves while I can.
I remember one time up on the observatory deck of Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, there were two visitors standing right by me. They were looking out across Tokyo and having a conversation like this:
boy: Look at how all the buildings are jammed together.
girl: I know, I feel sorry for the kids who have to grow up here.
boy: Yeah, without any trees.
girl: I could never live here.
I was totally eavesdropping, I know. But I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. I almost butt into their conversation to say, “Um guys, it’s JANUARY! Of course there is no green anywhere…it’s WINTER!” But I didn’t. If they could see Tokyo now, right?
I hope you’re all enjoying the great weather outside! x
