Design Festa

A friend of mine wrote me to see if I wanted to go to Design Festa this fall.  It’s a craft festival held at Tokyo Big Site convention center in the spring and fall every year.  It’s not jury-ed so while one booth might be displaying water colors of birds, the next one might sell […]

Blindness

I saw this guy in the crosswalk in Hiroo walk right into a cab that was stopped in the middle of the crosswalk.  The man was blind and he was mad.  I haven’t see that very often.  I guess you’re so vulnerable  when you’re blind and reliant on the assistance of others, you have to […]

Inhailing Starbuck’s

I just came back from Starbucks.  The lady asked me if I wanted a bag and I said, bag? I don’t need a cup.  I don’t need water. And then I said sometimes I think, and then I gestured like I was opening the packet of dehydrated coffer, pouring out a line of it, and […]

Corn Grits

Yesterday the neighbor did something in their apartment and something fell in my apartment.  I thought it was funny at first ala Arested Development. Then I turned around and looked at what fell.  It was a hairbrush and my i-phone.  Into the toilet.  Damn. That’s not funny. Full disclosure: This is not the first time […]
