Dear readers, my apologies: November has been a lousy month for writing. A lot of personal issues are eating up all my time, and I hope to get to some of that backlog of posting in December. That said, I headed out for my annual momiji-gari (紅葉狩り, “fall foliage hunting”) at the Seattle Japanese Garden on Nov. 9 (2013 post here). Getting “out” into nature, even just to the Arboretum and the Japanese Garden, is something I didn’t get to do often enough last year. But a new year is coming, and I am resolving to make nature part of my self-care regime again, like it was in the first few years in Japan.

I got out to the Seattle Japanese Garden to do some 紅葉狩り (momijigari, maple viewing or “maple hunting”) on October 28. Momiji season is a few weeks earlier in Seattle than in Ishikawa. The garden, which is part of the Washington Park Arboretum, was built in the Japanese style in 1960 by Junji Iida.
