About Me

My photo
California born by a Cuban mother, married to a Japanese man, and have lived in Japan since 2004, minus one year living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I have friends and family in many places in the world. I dreamed of traveling to many distant lands, creating music and dancing to it, meeting interesting people, and discovering treasures in the most unlikely of places.

Moths and other bugs


I have a theory about the bugs around here. It is that they have cycles of 2 weeks.
Every two weeks we have a new huge population of bugs of a new species, and the prior one has quickly faded in number. Recently it has been cute little green bugs with waggy tails and perky wings. Of course, there are always the fewer odd bugs: moths, flies, others, plus spiders. It gets very lively at night here by the river.

Pruning At Nishimera Junior High School

Today I pruned some bushes at the top of the school driveway. I really like pruning. It reminded me of when I used to work for an older couple in Sonora, California, when I was ging to Columbia Junior College. I used to prune his apple and pear trees, and take care of his garden. I also made me miss having a garden of my own. But its nice that I can help to take care of the school grounds!
