From where I stand {Honmoku dori, Yokohama)

Honmoku dori.
The main street
in a residential neighbourhood
many colleagues and students call home.

There may be a connection
between the name of this street
and the phrase “hunky dory”.
Who knows, really.
The world is a miraculous place to live.

This late-May photo walk
included a side trip to get my bangs cut
by a lovely woman who spoke no English
(and who seemed,
at least to me,
to be guarded by two male body guards
in beauty salon uniforms),
a rest on a wooden bench,
and the search for a small bouquet
of near-perfect flowers.

Japan looks like many things.
It also looks like this.
{A basket of pink roses
and tiny teddy bears.}

  1. I loved this. It gives me a renewed sense of appreciation for the neighbourhood and I will look at it with fresh eyes when I walk down the dori tomorrow. Thanks Monna.
