Where I grew up.........
                                                                     feeling nostalgic.

Chikako san had today off so we went out for lunch,
albeit a sleeting, drab 'n chilly day. 

 Chikako san choose this ....... 

 My choice. 
Deliciously strong Miso flavour. 

 Second Prize ! 
Congratulations and well-deserved, methinks. 

How many times have we driven to this shop ? 
Many and many more to come.

Monday, 13th January, 1975
I joined the Commonwealth Bank as a junior clerk. 
What a nightmare that was.
Had I have stayed I would have been celebrating my 40th anniversary. 
It doesn't bear thinking about. 


I started Lent 101 today. 

Amazingly, by chance I checked and my life has been a total of 
21012 days 
in length as of today. 
What is the universe saying ? 


Sunday Evening, 
11 January, 2015

We caught the midday bus to Sendai
and had lunch, went shopping, etc. 

We went to Evening Prayers with Father Frank. 
Firstly, we sat in the main Church. 

Very serene and contemplative. 

Then we moved to  the small chapel 
within the Sendai Anglican Church. 
No photos.

3rd January

3rd January

The anniversary of my Volkmann's Ischemic Contracture. 
Long, long ago...... 


Day #1 of 2015 - We went to the early evening showing of this Swedish film. 
It is a comedy, mostly in Swedish with Japanese subtitles. 
Laughed and laughed and laughed. 

A great way to start 2015 ! 

Gone Girl Official Trailer #2 (2014) Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike HD

Day #2 of 2015 - We went to the evening show at the Forum Cinema here. 
This movie is truly a psycho-thriller; definitely worth seeing.

January 2nd

One of my favourite authors, E.M. Forster was born on this day in London in 1879. 


We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us. 

Happy 2015

1st day of January
