Green morning

It's amazing how green things are getting these days. Each season is so pretty. I wish I could take a good picture of Rishiri today, but t
I started this blog yesterday morning (6/10 in Japan), but stopped in the middle. Possibly to try to take a picture. 

What I wanted to talk about was how lush and green the train route is becoming. Once you get a little inland, the heat and humidity go up. Green stuff seems to like that. 
The strangest thing about going inland this time of year is the significant temperature difference. Thankfully, it isn't hot inside my inland schools yet. But the towns are usually warmer than Wakkanai. The second strangest thing is the noise. Some type of wildlife sings a steady chorus through the day. Whether bug or frog, I know not. 

Yesterday morning, I landed one of the tables on the train. It was pretty exciting. I'm always excited by the trains with tables. 
My table. 

Leaning on my table, looking pensive and writerly. The first step to becoming a writer is developing a writer face. Hahahaha.

Dear Writer,

You have a gorgeous face--definitely a writer face--unless you turn around and then it would be a lefter face. ha ha ha Kinda like what happened when you went to the coast to take a sunset picture. The bus "lefter" behind. ha ha ha Wow--2 jokes in 1 email!

Just wait 8 more weeks...then you will have all the green you ever want to see here in the jungles of the deep south. The good thing is that we do have a/c!
