One of the things I love about Japan is the distinct seasons and the way each season is celebrated. Every year I get to experience the passage of time in a very physical way.
Autumn flowers like Cosmos are forever linked with cool breezes in my mind.
The post harvest burning of the rice fields has begun as well, and the smoke this time of year always seems to hang and drift away slowly.
mmm...that's how I feel about the smell of dry leaves on the soil and the sound of a chainsaw. you just feel it. I especially love fall.ReplyDelete
