As we pack up (again!) and near our return to Japan, I remembered something from a walk on the Dale Ball trail not long after our leaving Upaya. Miki suddenly felt quite sad, thinking that our old Japanese dressers would be forced to stay forever in the States. Born a hundred years ago, they spent their formative years in the home country, then went overseas in late life. Like many immigrants, they underwent a one-way trip to a land where they're destined to live out their days.
On the turntable: Nirvana, "Nevermind"
On the nighttable: John Pen La Farge, "Turn Left at the Sleeping Dog"
