I read

unknown plant on the shore
"Far North " by Marcel Theroux. It was a unimaginably tough story but really intriguing. A barren image of the fields and towns lingered in my mind while I was in the story, but the story has something rich and fertile because of the main character, who is very far from me, "far north" itself.

Now, I'm reading The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion.

as you see, I always fix the lomography film at a wrong position:(

spring is almost here (though we have some more cold days ahead),
and the time has just started when I suffer from pollen allergy.

"be active phyisically

and talk with your body when you are down mentally."

That simple practice does help most, for sure. 
(In fact I don't understand really how and about what to talk with my body and haven't done that, though.)

Have a nice week ahead!

at a nearby beach; taken in November 2014
It got cloudy unfortunately when we got to the beach, but we had a really good time there.

japanese plum blossom on February 16, 2015
I forgot but they had already started blooming and giving off a faint good smell.

This time last year I was visiting my mother in the hospital every day and dropping by at a shrine which has japanese plum trees in the small site. They were beautiful so I wanted to break off a branch to bring it to my mother, which I thought was nonsense (and it would be a crime!). Instead I shot the blossom with my camera and iPhone and showed her the images. It seems like a long time ago.
