I take a day off from cruel and unusual punishment and wander around. It is the best day. This time of year is unpredictable weather-wise in Okinawa. It can be drab rainy and grey, but this year the weather has been splendid, especially today.
I take a day off from the scraping and sanding. I just bike around the area around the apartment and enjoy early April.
Morning Glory has special significance in Japan. https://quietripple.wordpress.com/2011/04/21/good-morning-glory/
I return to one of my favorite spots, the tomb on the island.
This is a wonderful time in Okinawa. It is still cool enough such that you can open all your windows and a cooling breeze wafts through the apartment. Not long from now, we will be sealed in air conditioned space.
I creep into the university and I am stopped short by an amazing Ikebana display.
She is so talented.
