“All Heaven and Earth
Flowered white obliterate…
― Bashō Matsuo,
Last night Kanagawa got hit by a snowstorm. It was the first snow this winter and the most snow I’ve experienced out here in Japan. I walked around a bit last night enjoying the way everything looked once covered.
I moved to California when I was six years old, so my experience with snow has been limited to the occasional trip and my short stay in Chicago. But some of my oldest childhood memories take place in the snow in Bucharest or during my trip to Brashov and Timishoara with my Grandmother.
