26 Mar

Hopefully,

by the time I upload all the photos

I’ve taken in NY,

spring will be here.

Quick quick,

because I don’t have

that many more left.

A warm cloudy day

or

a cold sunny day.

I think I take the latter one though.

Once, a bagelholic

10 Mar


Have I ever told you?

I used to be bagelholic.

I used to keep a thing called

bagel journal in which

I would rate and write comments on

the bagel I had each day.

I say each day

because I used to eat a bagel

every day.

Always.

Without missing even a day.

….Well, that is a lie

but I sure did have a lot of bagel

from the age 19-21ish.

I even ordered bagels from NY

when I lived in Seattle.

…and I got so angry at Fedex because they

messed up the delivery and my bagels got

kept in a storage and by the time I got them

they were kind of stale.

I even had bagel dolls

which I got through ebay.

(I was the only bidder…..hooray….)

It was a bagel with a face and limbs.

Back then,

they seemed so adorable

I thought I was going to love them forever

but something happened

and they just started to look silly and icky.

I think I sold them at a garage sale.

So, enough about the history of my bagelholicness.

Now?

I still enjoy having bagels.

I prefer bagels over donuts

but…

I wouldn’t rate

how chewy the bagel was

using five stars

or

I wouldn’t collect

a smiling bagel with arms and legs.

Anyways,

I did go to a few bagel stores in NY

and I wish I got to go to other ones too!

(Next time, I will.)

Anyways anyways…..

I really liked

Bagel Smith so if you are in Williamsburg area

and if you want to grab something quick and yummy,

try it!!

9 Mar

So Leonardo,

you came to Thailand.

you came to New York.

Are you here in Tokyo yet?

The vintage buttons

I’d gone crazy over.

The day I felt that the spring was

not too far from where I was standing.

The santa that made me feel sad.

The day

I was simply happy.

8 Mar

Finally got my photos developed.

I was actually going to get that done

while I was still in NY

but oh well, that is okay.

************************

I’ve been told by many people that I walk slow.

At first, I thought it was only men

who think I walk slow

but apparently,

my sisters think I walk slow too.

Well, fine then.

I walk slow.

I walk slow because it’s too difficult

to walk fast

and to look up and down.

I tend to not look at right and left.

(Oh I know it’s a bad idea.

But it’s so difficult to look up and down and right and left

and ‘up&down’ is more interesting to look at than ‘right&left’)

Well, anyways….

I like to look at

below my eye levels and

above my eye levels

and that is my excuse for me

not being able to walk fast.

See, when you look

below your eye level,

you may find stuff like this.

(Too bad it’s blurry

but I also like it blurry.)

You, you or you…

24 Feb

3 months I spent in NY

was truly lovely

despite the harsh winter.

No,

even the harsh winter was

part of the beauty.

I got to see so many familiar faces

I got to meet so many new faces.

You will never know how much joy

you have brought me

and I hope,

I was able to bring you,

perhaps a little bit of joy to your life as well.

You might ask,

what my favorite part of being

in NY was.

Then I say,

I loved every single bits of it.

Just being here,

inhaling the air,

walking on the street,

hearing the musicians play music

in the subway,

seeing people,

meeting people,

greeting strangers,

being greeted by strangers.

Seriously everything.

…I was just so so happy

and this wouldn’t have been

the same

without

you, you or you.

I’m talking about YOU.

Thank you.
