  • 1) How Japan Inspired Me\n\n{collage of ephemera}\n
  • 2) Heading to the far far west Kyoto Train station reading Gary Snyder - not knowing a word but ready for anything - so i thought - dropped off on snowy road to se tup house\n\n\n
  • 3) Mushroom farm - not a usual tour of duty amongst missionaries and teachers - worked so hard and was so lonely checking mail box for letters and searching for peanut butter or precious jars of salsa\n\n{view of mushroom farm}\n
  • 4) Hitchhiking all over from Shikoku to Nagano - living working along the way - explored agriculture to poetry and learned bits of history and culture rare even of Japanese \n\n{shikoku bouken}\n\n
  • 5) Patience - learning language one word at a time while working at enoki farm, learning skills for which i had no physical attributes\n\n{obachan in mushroom farm}\n
  • 7) Tolerance\n\n{with mayor}\n

  • 9) Aesthetics - a deliberate sense of appreciation and refinements with words for which i had no reference - wabi sabi, a wee bit of inperfection, the you no bi - the beauty in utility}\n\n{?}\n
  • 13) grow weed \n{hokkaido plants}\n
  • 10) Ocean people - fish, boats, eating the whole damn fish, squid lights, \n\n{ferry ocean}\n
  • 12) resourcefulness - make anything, pickled this, fermented that, \n{gonda}\n
  • 11) committed - \n{metal planet}\n
  • 14) where it took me \n
