Sweet Musings with a Bitterly Sharp Wit

Miss Me?


After yet another 12 hours in the air, sitting cheek-to-jowl with some semi-conscious, drooling strangers that I could have happily done without ever meeting, I’ve finally returned home again. Thank you to everyone who wished me well on my trip – It pains me to leave so many emails unanswered, but I don’t think I would be able to leave my computer for a few consecutive days if I replied to each one of you individually. I do really appreciate it though! Maybe it was all of the good karma being directed towards me by all you kind readers out there, but I had a fantastic time in Japan, as short lived as my trip was. Barely settling into a comfortable routine before abandoning the playing field once more, I only wish I had more time to enjoy my surroundings. Rushing around madly like a chicken with its head chopped off, I didn’t have many opportunities to just set about taking carefully posed and laid out pictures, so I appoligize for any tourist-like photos that I tried desperately to avoid taking. For better or for worst, here’s just an idea of what I captured…

If any of that strikes your fancy or you’d like to see a bit more of Tokyo through my eyes, I have a handful of other photos over on Flickr.

Sorry for all of this craziness lately; Things should be calming down a bit now, and I expect to go back to a fairly regular posting schedule, complete with new patterns, recipes, and reviews. I’d return to Japan at the drop of a hat, but it is still good to be home.

  4. Welcome home! Your pictures are lovely as always and I enjoyed the Flickr photos. May I ask a question? What are the ties on the trees for and are they made of paper? (ok, that was two questions :).

    I hope you will find some time to rest and recover from your journey.

  8. Welcome back! I’m glad you enjoyed your trip.
    I also was in Japan once, when I was 8 years old… just an hour at the Tokyo airport as me and my family were heading for a vacation in California. The time we spent there my parents were asked several times by japanese girls if they could take a picture with the cute little blonde kid. :D
