  1. wow! the central image in the photo reminds me of the three lines in Yosa Buson's 'Four Seasons' poems:

    It penetrates into me;
    stepping on the comb of my gone wife,
    in the bedroom.

    Great Photo!

  14. I do not know who Sara is, and where this winter scene took place. I owe it all to the bristling toothbrush.

    Thank you Willow.
