Thanks for the kind words folks, still no answers on what happened, but it looks as if it is murder.

Deams, in Japan there is a ritual for EVERYTHING including entering and leaving the toilet! (You have to change your 'indoor slippers' to 'toilet slippers,') Every day one of the monks has the task of raking it all smooth, then re-raking the design. And not only 'this' design... Each garden might have its own, and there may be several different stone gardens inside a temple. Here is another one just on the other side of the wall from the first one!!

(When you study to be a Monk, you don't 'graduate' until you can walk across the garden and not leave any footprints... )

I won't drive a car unless I absolutely have to due to carrying constraints, etc. There is no pleasure in it at all for me. Four wheels move the body but two wheels moves the soul.

That really is so tragic, Anne. Let's hope that at least the police can catch the SOB who did it.

Although a thing that is beautiful is full of beauty, I think that one thing can be more beautiful than another, as it may have a greater capacity for beauty. For instance, a beautiful rose might have more beauty than a beautiful turkey. To find out, just measure them in Helens* and see which is comes higher on the scale.

I have never heard of the SI before this. What a wonderful convention!

That somehow makes it worse. I echo Stichawl's sentiments and hope they bring whoever is responsible to justice quickly.

Your pictures are making me insanely jealous, Stitchawl. Just need to win the lottery and I'll be over there like a shot.

Keep in mind that I only take photos of the pretty places. The rest looks just like London, New York, or Mexico City... I'm sure the countryside in your area is just a lovely, only it's too familiar to you to notice.

Granted. Though as much as I want to see the "real" Japan, even if it is now confined to the areas of which you speak, I also have very fond memories of Tokyo - I'm an admirer of cityscapes too, and fell in love with Rappongi, Ginza and other such districts.

Japan is lovely in autumn if you are in the right place, but in springtime it's fantastic everywhere. There are cherry blossoms, magnolias, bulbs, wisteria etc etc, all flowering even in the smallest plots. My first visit to Japan in autumn left me with an impression of grey, in spite of going to the mountains and seeing all the lovely trees, the second visit in spring blew me away, there were flowers all over the place.

And thanks for the good wishes Orlok and Stitchy

Just finished a Naked Green Machine smoothie (10 fluid ounces) Working on some oatmeal and a cup of Sencha.

I just realized that Thanksgiving is next week. Better order that turkey. Man does time fly when you are sleep deprived and enjoying watching a kid grow.
