A journal by Lisa.

Early spring has arrived in Tokyo

The most gloriously warm, beautiful day in a long while, it seems. The sharp biting chill of winter has taken a step back for the time being, and an amiable breeze flows in to take its place. I sniff, and the air smells different. Soft, round, fluffy. Like cotton candy, except made from new grasses and unfurled buds. I’m so excited, I feel like dancing. Down to my bones, I can sense the new season coming. I’m ready for it.
