Kyu Shiba Rikyu Garden (March 13th, 2011)
It may seem I have a lot of pictures of this garden.
But for me it was amazing to see this in the middle of Tokyo.
And given the circumstances, I felt all the more appreciative of being able to see it.
It's hard to put into words how I feel now about seeing something like this.
Being able to experience it, and that it's still there.
Because so much was lost on March 11th.
And it wasn't over with.
Yet having a place like this to take a moment out from all the sadness, loss and worry,
was very much needed and appreciated.
For a people who have given a lot of beauty and thoughtfulness to the world,
this one traveler was and still is deeply touched by it all.
